As the world remains consumed by the crisis in Ukraine, the relationship between the U.S. and Russia continue on a downward spiral. Most recently, shooting back at allegations of dishonesty by President Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin recently rhetorically asked, “Who is he to judge?”
Although many American’s don’t necessarily agree with Putin on many levels, he has surely painted himself in a far superior light than Obama during the past months. As Obama struggles to inch closer in the fight for nobility, he recently stuck his nose up at Putin only to have it smacked back down.
Despite Obama being just about last person to lecture on honesty, it’s good to hear someone of political power finally call him out on such shenanigans. After being told that Obama accused Putin of being dishonest regarding the crisis in Ukraine, Putin couldn’t even let the interviewer finish his question before butting in.
He flipped on his mic, and with a smirk said, “Who is he to judge?” He then made an attempt at comedy saying, “Who is he to judge, seriously? If he wants to judge people, why doesn’t he get a job in court somewhere?”
Obama has consistently lied on almost countless occasions regarding not only the long list of current – and unresolved – scandals that plague his administration, but other things as well. Tisk tisk, Obama for even trying to pull that card.
Let us know what you thought of Putin’s reaction in a comment below.
