TRUMPED: Did Vladimir Putin Just Endorse This Guy?

Must be the hair.

Following the media frenzy and testosterone-induced kerfuffle that was the CNN GOP presidential debate, Donald Trump hasn’t backed down from any of his vitriolic comments.

While he may be losing some fans, he gained one that many people know. Sure, he’s from out of town and can’t legally vote in America, but he does carry a big stick (with a sickle). The man is Russian President Vladimir Putin.

During his annual press conference, Putin said he would work with “whomever the American voters choose” but singling out Donald Trump as someone he could “get along very well.”

“He’s a very lively man, talented without doubt,” Putin said according to the Interfax news service after the three-hour news conference. He added that Trump is the “absolute leader in the presidential race.”

“He’s saying he wants to go to another level of relations, closer, deeper relations with Russia,” Putin continued. “How can we not welcome that? Of course we welcome that.”

So Putin just burned Obama, claiming that relations aren’t on the “Christmas Card Level” that Putin would appreciate. And Trump has been milking his relationship with the Russian for weeks saying that he was “stablemates” with Putin during an episode of ’60 Minutes’ that featured both of the megalomaniacs men.

Of course, Trump and Putin weren’t even on the same continent when the episode was taped (or aired) but never mind that. It seems some politicians just have problems with geography.
