During a fundraiser a few months back, Hillary Clinton likened Vladimir Putin’s actions in Crimea to what Hitler did in eastern Europe.
According to the Long Beach Press Telegram, Clinton said,
Now if this sounds familiar, it’s what Hitler did back in the 30s. All the Germans that were … the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they’re not being treated right. I must go and protect my people and that’s what’s gotten everybody so nervous.
This struck a cord with Putin and when asked about the remarks during an interview on French television, he clear that he found her comments to be extreme:
When people push boundaries too far, it’s not because they are strong but because they are weak,
But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman.
I can hear all the cries from Hillary-loving American women now. Putin would love nothing more than to see Hillary Clinton become our next president. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tried to further inflame women voters in this country with sexist remarks. After all, Putin is well aware that Russian can grow their territories and gain more power under a weak Clinton Administration than they ever could under a Republican leader.
But that wasn’t all he had to say. He was extremely dismissive of Hillary’s comments and basically shrugged off her opinion by saying,
When I hear such extreme statements, to me it only means that they don’t have any valid arguments.
Do you agree that Putin would love nothing more than to see another weak Democrat in the White House? Comment with your thoughts below.
