6

TL/DR –

During a fundraiser in California, President Biden referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “crazy S.O.B.” which elicited a response from the Kremlin, dismissing it as “Hollywood cowboy-style behavior”. Putin suggested that Biden’s comments were a reaction to Putin’s statement that it would be in Russia’s interest for Biden to win a second term; an endorsement seen by some as an attempt to saddle Biden with the endorsement of one of America’s key adversaries. Biden also criticized former President Trump for comparing his legal issues to the death of Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny, and added that Trump has been damaging for the Republican Party.


Biden Calls Putin a “Crazy S.O.B” at California Fundraiser, Kremlin Responds

“Crazy S.O.B.” is how President Biden referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin during an evening fundraiser in California, a comment the Kremlin dismissed as “Hollywood cowboy-style behavior”. Biden expressed concerns over nuclear conflict due to leaders like Putin.

Biden’s remarks sparked a sharp retort from Moscow. Kremlin spokesman, Dmitri S. Peskov, accused Biden of playing up to his domestic audience with his Hollywood-style remarks.

Putin, in a televised interview, offered his interpretation of why Biden lashed out. He suggested it was his recent endorsement of Biden for a second term that provoked the comment. He believed Biden’s response was a reaction to this endorsement.

Back in California, Biden also criticized former President Donald Trump, comparing his legal troubles to the death of Aleksei A. Navalny, the Russian opposition leader. According to Biden, Trump’s actions have been disastrous for the Republican Party.

Biden also expressed disbelief over Trump’s recent comparisons of himself to Navalny. Trump’s admiration for Putin has been notable over the years. Recently, he openly stated his support for Russia’s actions against NATO countries with outstanding dues.

Historically, Biden has been openly critical of Putin. Last week, he held “Putin and his thugs” responsible for Navalny’s death. He also referred to Putin as a “butcher” and, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, declared that Putin “cannot remain in power”.
