Putin Speaks Out: Democrats Are 'Sore Losers' Who Need To Learn How To 'Lose With Dignity
by Ken Meyer, Mediaite --
Vladimir Putin held a news conference in Moscow today, where he offered new praise to President-Elect Donald Trump and took shots at those who have accused the Russian president of meddling with the 2016 election.
Putin and Trump’s friendly relationship has been well established, though the Russian president has been under fire ever since multiple intelligence agencies determined that he orchestrated cyber activities to interfere with America’s politics. The Kremlin has pushed back on this in recent weeks, and today, Putin said that the Democratic Party has “forgotten the original meaning of its own name” by blaming him for Hillary Clinton‘s loss.
“[The Democrats] are losing on all fronts and looking elsewhere for things to blame,” Putin said, according to Reuters. “In my view this degrades their own dignity. You have to know how to lose with dignity.”
