Did you hear the one about Hillary doing an impression of Vladimir Putin in Canada? Because it actually happened, Jackie Kucinich reports. During a wide ranging policy speech to the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, Hillary answered a question about the American electoral system with an impression. The moderator began asking her “if for some reason you decided to be president” and then quickly corrected himself, “actually run for that because there is a process.”
“There is a process, it’s not like Putin,” she said.
Cue the laugh track.
Hillary and Vlad have a long, complicated history. Last year, she compared Russia’s actions in Ukraine to Hilter’s in the 1930s. Putin responded on French TV by calling her “weak.” According to her book Hard Choices the two bonded in 2010 over Putin’s efforts to save Siberian tigers.
