Excuse me? Say again?
The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, spoke at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Russia yesterday and offered some keen advice for American citizens while defending Donald Trump. After blasting the US and the West with his typical rehashed revisionism, Putin continued with his juggling act and said we need to “stop disrespecting Trump”.
I don’t know about you, but I sure as hell don’t take advice from Vladimir Putin. This is none of his fucking business and it offends me and pisses me off he is even talking about our political system after what he did to help put Trump in the White House. This is Vladimir Putin trolling the good citizens of the US.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on U.S. citizens to stop disrespecting President Donald Trump, a trend that the Russian leader called a symptom of a poor political system in the U.S.
Putin, who U.S. officials have accused of swaying the 2016 U.S. presidential race in Trump’s favor, broke a streak of hostile diplomatic exchanges between the two leading powers during a speech Thursday in order to defend his former political ally from what he considers unfair criticism at home. Speaking at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin again denied any claims of Russian interference in last year’s U.S. elections, asserting that Trump “won honestly” and that he and his supporters have behaved legitimately in response to the current U.S. political climate.
“Inside the country, disrespect is shown for him. This is a regrettable negative component of the U.S. political system,” Putin said, according to the state-run Tass Russian News Agency.
“One can argue but one can’t show disrespect, even not for him personally but for those people who voted for him,” he added.
