With a high-stakes meeting set to take place next week between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in Geneva, the Russian leader added fuel to the fire with comments that aren’t going to sit well with the nation’s 46th president and his handlers.
In an interview that aired on Friday night, Putin talked with NBC’s Keir Simmons and praised former President Donald J. Trump as an “extraordinary individual”, while appearing to take a swipe at Biden’s spending the entirety of his adult life as a creature of the malodorous D.C. swamp.
Putin said of Trump; “You may like him or not. And, but he didn’t come from the U.S. establishment. He had not been part of big-time politics before, and some like it, some don’t like it, but that is a fact.”
He referred to Biden as a “career man” adding that “He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics. Just think of the number of years he spent in the Senate.” Referring to the nearly four decades that he spent as a senator for Delaware before becoming second banana to Barack Obama as his vice president.

Putin added of Biden; “That’s a different kind of person, and it is my great hope that yes, there are some advantages, some disadvantages, but there will not be any impulse-based movements, on behalf of the sitting U.S. president.”
Biden, who has accused the Russian president of being a “killer’, continued to play the tough guy.
To that end, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was dispatched to CNN with the message that Russia’s imprisonment of political dissidents would be a major topic at Wednesday’s summit.

However, that line of attack may backfire on Biden considering that Trump supporters who were at the so-called “insurrection” at the Capitol are being held in deplorable conditions without bail at a special D.C. prison; there have been reports of beatings and torture, something that would normally be seen in communist China and not in the “shining city on a hill” that is the swamp or as Democrats laughably refer to it, the “citadel of democracy.”
According to an AFP report published earlier this month, the wily Putin is prepared to turn the tables on Biden by bringing up the election integrity protesters who are rotting in jail under the Biden regime.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “Of course, we will be ready to discuss everything, including problems that exist in the United States,” told reporters on Monday, adding that “A lot of interesting things are happening there,” he said, adding that the topic of the “protection of opposition rights” in America could likely come up and that Russia was monitoring the “persecution” of the political prisoners.

Thanks to the Democrats and their contempt for the Constitution, their loathing of democracy, and the weaponizing of the state’s mighty surveillance apparatus against political enemies, any serious moral advantage that America previously enjoyed no longer exists, in its place there is only Biden’s hypocrisy.
Further inflaming Biden was a statement issued by Trump on Thursday; “Good luck to Biden in dealing with President Putin — don’t fall asleep during the meeting, and please give him my warmest regards!”
During the NBC interview, Putin lamented that relations between the two nuclear superpowers are at a low point, it’s probably safe to say that the bullying blowhard Biden will only make them worse.
