Something’s not right about this guy. It’s quite cringy the way he addresses the world and everyone looks up at the monitor in awe. I’m not with it.

Is there anything left to politicize in arts or sport anymore?

Judging from his report on the "rescue" of the hold outs at the steel plant yesterday, he certainly likes fantasy.

They should make a movie about the evil Putin and the brutality of his unjustified aggression against the sovereign nation of Ukraine, but hold on ... before that, how about a movie about the war crimes of Bush and the unjustified US invasion of Iraq which led to the creation of ISIS?

Maybe he can get Tom Cruise to fly his Mig , over Ukraine in bombing raid

Oh geez... Why is there a need to color another art event with politics and Ukraine?

He reminds me of Max Headroom.

I'm sure Max Headroom was at least of average height.

...and he never scowled.

He ought to find time too prosecute the war, instead trying to be in the limelight

This guy is milking the moment for all it's worth. I hear that he is in danger from his own men, now that some of them have seen how they've been left to fend for themselves and basically used as cannon fodder.

Tom san:

I think he's doing a good job. I've watched him when he was a comedian and was not impressed - as a leader of a threatened country he is doing very well.

Well,this certainly has brought out the CCP and Politburo funded commentators.

Personally,I find the Cannes Festival more interesting and enlightening than other film award ceremonies.

Milking the moment, my a*s. He’s the leader of a country that’s just been invaded and is fighting for its life, of course he’s gonna be out there wherever and whenever he can, pushing for his people. You Putinists really have no idea.

As the comments above show, he’s riling up the opposition and gaining more support with just a video camera and a mic.

Mission accomplished.
