Putin challenges Biden to debate after U.S. president calls Russian counterpart a “killer”

A more educated John Gotti vs. a slightly less incapacitated Professor John Gill. I can just imagine Biden trying to debate Putin. He could barely speak during his debates with Trump and Putin would be a far sharper and more formidable opponent. Biden’s handlers would have him so pumped up on B-12 and Adderall he would be bouncing off the walls while trying to remember his name. Putin is a guy who is the equivalent of someone who worked his way up through the ranks of the mafia, while Biden is a glorified used car salesman, even in his more cognitively functioning moments.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday responded to President Biden’s comment calling him a “killer,” by challenging the U.S. leader to a debate.

What he’s saying: Putin told Russian state TV, per ABC News, “I want to propose to President Biden to continue our discussion, but on the condition that we do it basically live, as it’s called, without any delays and directly in an open, direct discussion.”

  • “It seems to me that would be interesting for the people of Russia and for the people of the United States.”

The big picture: Russian officials and the Kremlin seethed this week at Biden’s comment. But the American president has stood behind the statement, with White House press secretary Jen Psaki saying Thursday that Biden gave a “direct answer to a direct question” on whether Putin was a killer.
