In a last-ditch attempt to try and blame Russia for Trump’s win, President Obama ordered 35 diplomats to leave the country. This is a sign of sheer desperation…
Putin responded by taunting Obama, calling his administration an “Angry and shallow-brained political corpse.” Putin delayed any retaliation and responded by inviting U.S. diplomats to a holiday party at the Kremlin. TRUMP THANKED PUTIN FOR THIS DELAY…
First, The Russian embassy even Tweeted out a “Lame Duck” to mock Obama’s desperate last days in office.
Then, in one final slap in the face, Putin no longer refused recognize Obama as the President. When asked about working with Trump, Putin praised Trump’s on Live TV: (VIDEO BELOW)
Trump was a man of commerce and an entrepreneur. Today he is a statesman. Today he is the head of the U.S. One of the leading countries of the world, with the leading economy and leading military power.

PREACH 🙌🏻 Putin: Trump Is a Smart Man!

Here was Putin’s full statement, according to Zero Hedge:
We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole.
As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-US relations based on the policies of the Trump Administration.
The diplomats who are returning to Russia will spend the New Year’s holidays with their families and friends. We will not create any problems for US diplomats. We will not expel anyone. We will not prevent their families and children from using their traditional leisure sites during the New Year’s holidays. Moreover, I invite all children of US diplomats accredited in Russia to the New Year and Christmas children’s parties in the Kremlin.
It is regrettable that the Obama Administration is ending its term in this manner. Nevertheless, I offer my New Year greetings to President Obama and his family.
My season’s greetings also to President-elect Donald Trump and the American people.
I wish all of you happiness and prosperity.
