Biden offers some flattery to Putin ahead of high-profile meetingPresident Biden had a few words of flattery for Russian President Vladimir Putin today, calling him “bright,' “tough” and “a worthy adversary,” just days before the two are set to meet face-to-face in Switzerland WaIt…I miss something? He’s no longer a “killer”? I guess u should be nice to someone kinda next door to try and make things work. That level of cooperation seems to be working with GOP numb nuts so let’s go GLOBAL with the concept. WAKE UP- he wants “USSR” again. And US GONE. Biden is no no novice n the international theater. Unlike trump he's not swayed by flattery. Putin s main goal is 2 do away w/the sanctions which affect his rich oligarch allies who r crying bcause their income & assets & lifestyles have been impacted by these sanctions.1/2 Biden is a huge Russia guy
