 Biden’s Poor Attempt To Appear Like ‘Hollywood Cowboy’: Kremlin

The Russian government today said that US President Joe Biden’s remark on President Vladimir Putin was a poor attempt to appear like a “Hollywood cowboy”, media reports said.

“The use of such language against the head of another state by the president of the United States is unlikely to infringe on our president, President Putin. But it debases those who uses such vocabulary,” Reuters quoted Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov as saying.

“Has Mr Putin ever used one crude word to address you? This has never happened. Therefore, I think such vocabulary debases America itself,” Peshkov added.

During a fundraiser in San Francisco, Biden called Putin a “crazy son of a b****”.

“This is the last existential threat. It is climate. We have a crazy SOB like that guy Putin and others and we always have to worry about nuclear conflict, but the existential threat to humanity is climate,” Biden told a small group of donors.

The US president is on a fundraiser tour in northern and southern California.

Not the first time

This is not the first time Biden has been caught cursing in public. In January 2022, the president was caught on hot mic abusing a Fox News White House reporter.

As the US gears up for elections later this year, Biden has stepped up his attacks on Putin. Last week, he blamed Putin and his thugs for killing Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

Biden has previously called the Russian president, who ordered the invasion of Ukraine in 2022, a “butcher” and a “war criminal”.

“We don’t know exactly what happened, but there is no doubt that the death of Nalvany was a consequence of something that Putin and his thugs did,” Biden said at the White House.

Recently in an interview, Putin said that a predictable Biden was better than Trump for the US.

Both the US and Russia have been at loggerheads since Russia invaded Ukraine two years ago. Since then there has been a series of sanctions imposed on Moscow.

Recently, the US government announced that it will announce a major package of sanctions against Russia.
