Putin smiles when asked about ‘crude’ Biden remark

Russian President Vladimir Putin has praised US President Joe Biden for calling him a ‘crazy SOB”, saying with an ironic smile that the remark showed why the Kremlin felt Mr Biden was a preferable future US president to Donald Trump.

Asked by Russian state television about Biden’s “crude” remark on February 22, Putin smiled sarcastically and bit his lip before looking at the ground.

The U.S. president made the “crazy SOB” remark as part of a sentence about threats to the world – including “that guy Putin and others,” the risk of nuclear conflict and the existential threat to humanity from climate change.

 “We are ready to work with any president. But I believe that for us, Biden is a more preferable president for Russia, and judging by what he has just said, I am absolutely right,” Mr Putin told the state television.

Mr Putin, 71, said that his previous comments saying that Mr Biden, 81, was Russia’s preferred candidate had triggered Mr Biden’s “adequate reaction”.
