Putin Blasts Anti-Trump Prostitutes
by Stephen Lendman
Putin diverged from his usual measured diplomatic rhetoric to blast what he called anti-Trump prostitution.
Washington’s criminal class and supportive media scoundrels are worse than street whores, without moral scruples, Putin stressed.
He spoke candidly and straightforwardly after remaining largely silent during months of groundless accusations of Russian US election hacking - absurd and hugely offensive charges only brainwashed or dim-witted people believe.
“I don’t know Mr. Trump personally. I have never met him and don’t know what he will do on the international arena. So I have no grounds to attack him or criticize him for anything, or protect him or whatever,” Putin stressed.
Despite his “solid win,” anti-Trump forces want him “undermine(d)” and delegitimized for their own dark purposes.
“I have an impression they practiced in Kiev and are ready to organize a (US-style) Maidan in Washington” - a coup to prevent “Trump (from) tak(ing) office.”
Political conditions in America and Europe “significantly” worsened in recent years, extremists replacing cool heads.
Putin called alleged Russian compromising material on Trump utterly “fake.” When he “visited Moscow several years ago, he wasn’t a political figure.”
We didn’’t even know about his political ambitions. He was just a businessman, one of America's richest people. So does someone think that our intelligence services go after each American billionaire? Of course not, it’s complete rubbish.”
Putin scoffed at the notion of a man involved in organizing beauty pageants in America with “some of the most beautiful women of the world” would come thousands of miles to Moscow for sex with call girls.
Make sense? Of course not, especially given months of relentless Trump bashing. He called the allegation a “complete fraud.” So did Putin and every other thinking person.
