Because enough ink hasn’t been spilled about Russia potentially colluding with the 2016 Trump campaign, Vladimir Putin gave the story a weird twist with some comments about his current relationship with Trump.
Putin spoke to apparent tensions between him and Trump by saying that Trump “is not my bride. I am not his bride, nor his groom. We are running our governments.”
The comments came at an economic summit in Xiamen, China, but it wasn’t the only shade Putin threw at Trump and his (admittedly clownish) administration.
It is hard to conduct a dialogue with people who confuse Austria with Australia
Putin also dropped this nugget: “It is hard to conduct a dialogue with people who confuse Austria with Australia, but there is nothing we can do about this. It seems to be the level of political culture in a certain part of the U.S. establishment.”
Putin also directly commented on the recent diplomatic back-and-forth, calling it “boorish.”
Daaaaaamn that is some hot fire, Vlad. Maybe he just needs another shirtless vacation.
To think everyone was all smiles and handshakes earlier this summer.
