Putin is amused and irritated by Questions

Kelly went on to demand answers, “this is not my allegation, this is the conclusion of the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies and the others that I mentioned.” She went on to ask Putin if his aides and Trump’s ever discussed loosening sanctions on Russia.

“That’s just absurd, what they’re saying,” he responded. “I don’t know where these people have come from that distribute this kind of information.”

‘This hysteria never seems to stop. Maybe someone has a pill that will make this hysteria stop,” Putin responded, to laughter from the audience.

It's a shame that I believe Putin before a Democrat but that is the fact. I watched the show and glad I did.

NBC sent Kelly to Russia. This cost them big bucks for her and her crew to be there for a few days to get an exclusive on supposed Russian meddling. Putin decimated her. And that's why this interview was given very little air time in the scheme of things.

This "interview " was a sound bite to kickoff Kelly's new show to get viewers to tune in. Who watches network television news anymore or cable news? Cut the cord!

I watched the entire show. Loved the part on the elephants. But my point on Putin was, if there was a flaming gun, the entire hour would have been on Putin. There wasn't and the hype fizzled never to be resurrected.

I think that in this interview did well from his perspective. He was not afraid to have the questions asked in public.

The US Government is in disarray. He did not have to lie in this interview, he simply had to delineate the incompetence and the chaos in current American governance.

He enjoyed it in his own mean way.

Of course, President Putin is correct. He stated that the Russians are not stupid enough to hack American entities on their own and of course they prefer patriotic Russian surrogates.

I am not an admirer of President Putin. He is simply playing his card hands well.

The Russian economy is a fraction of that of the USA, China, and the EU.
