Gotta love all the left trying to tell us what Putin reallllly said when we can read his own words.

No matter how much of a chubby you get from your sophistry, you know you don't believe Putin would prefer Biden.

Putin is a liar, and his lies are generally pretty transparent.

He also said he wasn't going to invade Ukraine. Putin, like Trump, lies. A lot.

What was said was said. Putin likes your guy. Embrace it, move on and go draw up some new conspiracy theories via your Bible MSNBC.

Keep on deflecting! Your boy has the Putin endorsement. Congratulations!

And you endorse his domestic policy for the good ol’ USA, Congratulations!

He said so.

I don’t need anyone here to tell me what he said, the article tells us all.

That's right. We don't need critical thinking. I'll just blindly follow anything Putin says, regardless of how nonsensical it sounds. reee

So much for Russia and Trump collusion.

Putin wants more and he knows he can get it from his pal Biden.

Did Vlad drink too much vodka? trump is his satellite and boot-licker. A subservient stooge and butt-kisser, a traitor. That's predictable.

Joe is not so predictable except for the fact that he kisses no fanny. Joe is a real POTUS, his own man.

has pushed this spending further.

which is the point and a good thing. Thanks Trump!

Yes it is, because it means they are able to send more arms to Ukraine.

Only 3 countries were paying in 2014 now a record number are. Thanks Trump x2!

This doesn't affect the US in any way. It's only a guideline.

lol This is equivalent to thanking a school shooter for being the impetus to strengthening school security, or the 9/11 highjackers for doing the same for airport security.

Also, the 2014 was 10 years. The 2% spending target was to be done over 10 years, i.e. 2024. So yeah, thanks Trump for helping do that thing that was already in place.

Think of Putin like an auto executive committed to EV. Biden make it easier for him to pursue his strategic vision of BRICS, multi-polar and de-dollarizing.

With Trump, Putin's ability to stay committed to his strategic vision suffers. Like an auto executive pulling or delaying EV investments due to 'market conditions'.

So yes, Putin's prefers Biden without question because he's a man vision and strategy, not simply transactional.

can’t agree with this assessment. Putin emasculated Tucker. 

Well, he did that too, but wouldn't you call that shooting yourself in the foot?

Tucker wanted to help Putin and instead of Putin using his help, he humiliated Tucker for his efforts.

not if his intent was to let it be known that he doesn’t need their “help.”

I’d describe it as creating a sempai/kohai relationship

No, they're not "paying up." You, like Trump, have no idea what you're talking about. They are increasing spending on THEIR military, not "paying up."

you gonna have to talk to the Financial Times about that one. They don’t agree with you.

Actually, that is in line with the Financial Times. NATO spending guidelines are guidelines only, and they aren't paid to NATO but a guide to how much of a member's GDP should be spent on defense.

Of course, this spending started going up after Ukraine was invaded by Russia. But Trump's treasonous suggestion that he wouldn't honor article 5 of the treaty probably has pushed this spending further.

Putin greatly enjoys playing 3-dimensional chess with Biden and his love of checkers and ice cream. Status quo like a dream come true, as he's destroying democracy in the process as the corruption's exposed.

Putin understands Trump's agenda is global stability, economic and wealth creation. While this good in the short term for Putin, his focus on multi-polar, de-dollarizing and BRICS takes hit were Trump to be elected.

its amazing that so many would believe a word that comes out of Putins mouth.

Almost everything he has stated about Ukraine, election interference, NATO has proven to be a lie.

propaganda was mastered by the Soviets, the word disinformation was probably invented by the soviets.

Here is what is objectively verifiable; Trump’s foreign policy positions are vastly preferable to Biden’s for Russia. So, it’s either Putin is helping Trump by tanking a dem talking point or Putin thinks Trump is too erratic and self obsessed to be trusted regardless of his preferable foreign policy positions.

see the former as more likely, but it’s not impossible that Putin’s “endorsement” of Biden is real. He may have decided Trump is too much of a whack job and that the adversary he knows is preferable. In war being unpredictable is good. In foreign policy being unpredictable is dangerous and can lead to unintended consequences.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

In 2020, a report by the U.S. Senate intelligence committee found Russia had tried to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election in order to help Trump, who defeated Hillary Clinton.

Putin also said he was surprised by a lack of sharp questions from U.S. television host Tucker Carlson in an interview that made headlines around the world last week.

How easily the alt-right falls into line with a casual comment by former Soviet KGB case handler Putin.

"Trump can't be a part of the authoritarian Axis and be deriving backing from them. Putin is endorsing Biden!".

I thought my evaluation of the MAGA intellect could go no lower.

What happened to the old-school, steely-eyed Americans who could sniff out a scam from a mile away?

Biden's idea of Russian invasion of Ukraine is Putin's idea of Russia's legal assistance of those seeking their legal independence for cause as result of 2014 Ukraine Civil War

The case for legal idependence has nothing to do with Russia. They started the civil war in 2014 as a land grab and escaled into a full scale iperial invasions in 2022.

and US escalation due to Biden's new policies.

The US escalated nothing.

It seems Putin's domestic approval is MUCH higher than Biden's, so Putin's version of Ukraine is more compelling.

Putin's approval means nothing. He's an autocrat - he doesn't need approval. When you control all media in a country, you control your own approval.

Being predictable isn't bad for a politician, assuming the other side also wants peace.

OTOH, Trump ran away in Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving power vacuums for warlords to fill.

Crazy people can't be allowed in decision making offices that can kill millions of people due to dumb mistakes. The people of NK, Iran, China and Russia need to learn this hard lesson, hopefully, without any loss of life.

can’t agree with this assessment. Putin emasculated Tucker. On the rare occasions Tucker did try to cut in on that lecture (it was certainly not an interview) Putin would promptly put him back in his place, to the point of reminding Tucker that he failed to get into the CIA. As in a former KGB Colonel reminding Tucker that he in fact is what Tucker wanted but failed to become.

About 10M Ukrainians now Russian citizens, subsequent to Ukraine Civil War. Many more Ukrainians are fleeing to not just Russia, but across Europe etc. What's not to like for Putin? Ukraine's becoming failed state, Biden collapsing etc. Status quo works well for Putin!

he said he would encourage Russia to attack NATO members that failed to spend enough on their own defense

Whoah, Trump said that?

Direct quote please?

I want to retain some faith in media… please provide a direct quote

On Saturday, he again brought up that anecdote, saying that he told European leaders they had to “pay up.”

Then, he said, the president of “a big country stood up and said, ‘Well, sir, if we don’t pay and we’re attacked by Russia, will you protect us?’”

Mr. Trump said he asked the other president if the country was “delinquent” in its payments. The leader responded, “Yes. Let’s say that happened,” Mr. Trump said.

“No, I would not protect you,” Mr. Trump recalled responding. “In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You’ve got to pay. You got to pay your bills.”

2020hindsights,

Putin, has remained in power for as long as I can remember.

In a political environment within an autocracy so vast in its reach over its citizens, requires the ability, a singular strength of character. a ruthless brutality to impose one's will without mercy.

To attempt to polically compare Biden with Putin could be a hiding to nothing.

In terms of the Ukraine invasion, it has been Putin's biggest disaster and Biden's biggest showing of foreign leadership.

Sure Vlad, you prefer the guy that called you a "Murderer" versus the guy that said you were a "Genius"...sounds totally legit...

Then there's that whole Ukraine thing where Biden led NATO's response to your disastrous invasion to include Sweden and Finland joining, while Trump was actively working your agenda to defeat more Ukraine aid and inviting you to invade our allies...

Maybe tomorrow you'll say you want Navalny as your running mate instead of Medvedev...

Putin's nothing if not logical. Biden's greatly weakening due to many failures, his favorability's been steadily falling since April 2021, never above 50% post Afghanistan debacle Aug 2021.

Biden political trends empower Putin but far more important to Putin is Biden's clear cognitive and physical decline. SC Hur report, 5hour video and transcripts being held, means Biden's compromised inside 1600.

Every Great Power hopes their true rival's impaired and trending badly, thus Mr. Putin loves status quo, his own party turning on him, d's house is VERY DIVIDED!

Biden will be replaced, as 86% of Americans in ABC polling just released post SC Hur report do not believe Biden's fit to serve another term. Biden's LAME DUCK, he'll release his delegates to DNC in early Aug.

Reminds me of when the gullible took Putin at his word that he wouldn’t invade Ukraine 

I remember when Biden was gullible like that, And look at where we are now.

Putin was planning his Ukrainian invasion for two years when Trump was in office

No.

and would have continued even if Trump had won his election.*

And he might have ridden a unicorn!

And, unlike Trump, Obama responded with sanctions. Obama acted strongly, Trump cowered.

Sanctions! Because Russia annexed Crime under Obama-Biden.

Russia didn't invade anywhere when Trump was in office. Why would sanctions be needed?

Apart from the invasion were Trump was weak. Did you just forget that?

Remind me--Russia invaded Crimea during Obama-Biden, and Ukraine during Biden-Harris. What part of history are you forgetting, or trying to re-write?

You have to take it all as tongue and cheek with Putin. Does he prefer America to be in a state of limbo and disfunction as Biden slips further into the clutches of his cognitive decline?
