    Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded to Biden’s explosive Wednesday interview wherein he agreed with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that Putin is a “killer.” In his characteristic way of using his wry humor and wit to perhaps lighten the intensity of the situation and expose it as somewhat asinine, the Russian leader simply said that evaluating other countries “is like looking in a mirror”.

    “I wish him good health” Putin quipped while noting the US president is probably engaged in a bit of psychological projection, according to Russian state sources. “I say that without irony or joking.” Here’s what Putin said in context:

    “It takes one to know one,” Putin said in televised remarks, using a saying from his childhood.

    “That’s not just a children’s saying and a joke. There’s a deep psychological meaning in this.”

    “We always see in another person our own qualities and think that he is the same as us.”

    Putin added that he wished Biden, 78, good health. “I’m saying this without irony, not as a joke.”

    “When I was a kid, when we were arguing with each other in the playground, we used to say, ‘Whatever you say [about others] is what you are yourself,'” Putin explained.

    The comments were made on Russian television Thursday, the day after Biden’s ABC News interview aired wherein Biden also asserted that Putin “doesn’t have a soul”.

    Here’s the key controversial part of that interview that Putin is responding to:

    Asked whether he believes Mr Putin is a “killer” in a pre-taped interview that aired on Wednesday, the president responded: “I do.”

    “The price he’s going to pay, you’ll see shortly,” he said. Mr Biden recalled meeting Mr Putin, during which he reportedly told him that he “doesn’t have a soul”: “I wasn’t being a wise guy.”

    “He looked back at me and said, ‘We understand each other’,” Mr Biden said.

    “I know him relatively well,” Biden had introduced the comments with, and added that “the most important thing dealing with foreign leaders in my experience… is just know the other guy.”

    Meanwhile, amid the rapidly spiraling relations, the Kremlin had recalled its ambassador to the United States late in the day Wednesday.

    When pressed about Biden’s “killer” comments about Putin, Psaki tried to play it down:

    At Wednesday’s press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki declined to specify whether the president believes the Russian president, literally or metaphorically, is a killer.

    He’s not going to hold back in his direction communications [with Russia]. He’s not going to hold back publicly,” Psaki said.

    And further, on the recalling back home to Moscow of the Russian ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov, Psaki said the administration “is going to take a different approach in our relationship to Russia than the prior administration. …We are going to be straightforward and we are going to be direct in areas where we have concerns.”

        Biden, come-on-man, even little kids know you shouldn’t poke the bear with a gratuitous sharp stick. I’m American through-and-through but Biden ………

        Putin should say that, although a former member of his country’s intelligence services, who would have been involved in different theaters of war, he should not dignify with an answer, any loli-sniffing “dignitary” who played WAP on the campaign trail.

        (Instead, plays with tigers and rides horses, shirtless.)

        Putin is the Raid of leaders: “he kills radical Muslims, dead”.

        Whereas America trains them, feeds them and then, imports them into the West. Most Americans are very dumb when it comes to knowing what their government does around the world.

        As for Biden he actually bombed the Serbs to protect radical Muslims; radical Muslims who then went on to wage over two decades of brutal war across the world. Putin knows this and thus he has no respect for Biden.

          With all due respect, Islam is recognized as a state religion, in Russia, but not Protestantism.

        PUTIN is a Effin Commie, and as such is our sworn enemy Putin hates America, The Russians are not our friends if YOU like them so much and you like Putin so much then Effing go to Russia. I spent four years in the military during a constant cold war threat we fought these b#stards for almost 60 years and for Americans to think Putin and his ilk are cool is a slap in the face to all the Americans who served during the cold war and especially when it went hot (Korea, Vietnam). Never thought I would see the day that Americans prefer a EFFIng scumbag commie over their own.

        • cranerigger

          BrooklynSez, thank you for your military service.

          Regarding part of your last sentence, “EFFing scumbag commie”. I can see how you might characterize both characters under discussion that way. Many Americans see it that way. But NYC continues to vote for folks like Mayor DeBlasio (D) and leads the state in electing Gov. Cuomo (D) for 3 terms. Surely you can see how that detracts from calling anyone an “EFFing scumbag commie”.

          Semper Fidelis.

        Biden needs to keep his mouth muzzled. He and Kamala are full of it.
