Putin calls Hillary Clinton ‘weak’, ungraceful with her words
Question of the Day
Russian President Vladimir Putin had a few things to say about Hillary Clinton, and women in general, Tuesday during an interview on French television, given in advance of his planned visit to the country.
During the interview with Radio Europe 1 and TF1 TV, Mr. Putin was asked about some of Mrs. Clinton’s recent comments in which she compares his recent actions in Crimea to Adolf Hitler’s attempts to redraw the boundaries of Europe in the 1930s.
According to the English translation of the interview, posted by the Kremlin, Mr. Putin responded, “It’s better not to argue with women. But Ms. Clinton has never been too graceful in her statements.”
Mr. Putin went on to say that, “When people push boundaries too far, it’s not because they are strong but because they are weak,” adding, “But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman.”
When questioned on Ukraine, Mr. Putin declared that there were no Russian forces currently in Ukraine aiding the rebels there, and that he recognizes the recent election and President-elect Petro Poroshenko.
When asked how he would like to go down in history, Mr. Putin said, “I would like to be remembered as a person who did his best for the happiness and prosperity of his country and his people.”
