US President Biden calls Putin a "murderous dictator, pure thug"

Source: CNN

US President Joe Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "pure thug" while speaking at a St. Patrick's Day event Thursday.

At the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon on Capitol Hill, Biden said Putin is a “murderous dictator, a pure thug who is waging an immoral war against the people of Ukraine.”

Biden also said Ireland has “stepped up” in the face of Russian aggression against Ukraine. He said the relationship between Ireland and the United States was “taking on an even more intense and cooperative forum than it ever has because of Ireland's neutrality.”

If you’re in a fight, like the whole decent world is with this despicable bully, you want a guy like Joe on your side. We are so lucky to have a natural leader like him quarterbacking the effort to contain this megalomaniac menace. THIS man is talking in language that will get the attention of that cowardly weasel, as well it should.

They are hanging out with a crew from France. From her photos everyone in town is "Irishiss" today. No politics allowed so....

I found this video on youtube that follows the thug theme.

He will pay the price; Trumpty Dumpty is not being sanctioned.

It sounds like Biden's comments really got Putin's panties in a wad. Way to go Joe!
