Russia Mocks Joe Biden for His ‘Fatigue’ and ‘Forgetfulness’
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to the 'personal insults'
Joe Biden recently lashed out at Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a war criminal, murderer, and thug, which prompted a quick response from Russia.
The remarks were not exactly peace-seeking in the way that Democrats like to portray Biden.
The Kremlin responded with a description of him hitting the nail right on the head.
During a St. Patrick’s Day address Thursday, Biden said countries were “standing together against a murderous dictator, a pure thug who is waging an immoral war against the people of Ukraine.”
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov responded to the “personal insults” on Friday during a conference call:
“Given Mr. Biden’s irritability, his fatigue and sometimes forgetfulness … which ultimately leads to aggressive statements, we probably will not give any sharp assessments so as not to cause more aggression,” Peskov stated.
As 100 Percent FedUp! noted:
In labeling Putin as a war criminal for his actions in Ukraine, Biden seems as though he may be attempting to open a case for trying Putin in an international court in the event of a regime change.
As for the regime change itself, given how long Putin has been in power in Russia, it is a very distant possible outcome—although, in the past, referring to foreign leaders as “war criminals” generally has meant that the US intends to work in that direction such as with Saddam Hussein in Iraq.
The US has spent more than $1 billion on aid and arms for Ukraine, and the inflammatory rhetoric by Biden only serves to antagonize Putin further.
Putin recently called for a “self-purification” to rid his country of anyone who is questioning his strategy of invading Ukraine.
Russians “will always be able to distinguish true patriots from scum and traitors and will simply spit them out like a gnat that accidentally flew into their mouths,” he said.
“I am convinced that such a natural and necessary self-purification of society will only strengthen our country.”
Putin later accused Ukraine of committing genocide at a rally at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium on Friday to mark the eighth anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Ukraine.
As Neon Nettle reported:
“On our land, united by a common destiny — this is what people probably thought and were guided by when they went to the referendum in Crimea and Sevastopol on March 18, 2014,” Putin said.
“Punitive military operations were immediately organized against them, and not one, they were immediately plunged into a blockade, subjected to systematic shelling from cannons, air strikes — this is all what is called ‘genocide,’” he said.
“It is to save people from this suffering, from this genocide — this is the main, main reason, motive and goal of the military operation that we launched in the Donbass and Ukraine, this is precisely the goal,” the Russian president acknowledged.
