Putin Dismisses Clinton's Hitler Comparison With Sexist Jab

Russian President Vladimir Putin greets then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton upon her arrival at an APEC summit in Vladivostok in 2012.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's comparison of his actions in Crimea to Hitler's actions in Nazi Germany.

"It’s better not to argue with women," Putin told French radio station Europe 1 on June 4. "But Ms. Clinton has never been too subtle in her statements."

He added that the two had "cordial conversations" when meeting.

"When people push boundaries too far, it’s not because they are strong but because they are weak," Putin added. "But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman."

Clinton is the Democrats' leading candidate for president in 2016, though she has not made a decision. She made the comparison speaking at a private event in California on March 4.

Isn't it what he thinks about Ukraine and other non-Russian
nations, including normal Russians, slaves of Tyranny
of Varag-Prussak, in the "strana rabov strana skotov"?
Is it why Russia, ruled by Varag-Prussak, pushing its borders too far?
Russian people are weak - make them serfs of "pomesh'iks"?
Georgia is small - grab-repopulate Abkhazia and South Ossetia?
Ukraine is weak - grab half of it and repopulate, turning Ukrainians into serfs - "Na koleni Hohol!"?
Women are weak - as Varag always do, gang-rape them?
Maybe Putin saying that Russia is weak and pushing its
borders too far?
Peter, nephew of Georgian King made Russia strong
- they poisoned him and betrayed the nations that
created Russia, is it because they would be stronger, enslaving their creators?
Stalin and non-Russians made USSR and Russia strong
- they poisoned him and after purges and usurping power
tried to enslave them - CIS emerged - is now Russia will be stronger if they enslave their creators and breed instead
of them inferior Russians?
Or is it hope of Russia use ingenious proposition of KGB swine,
half-Varag half Prussian, to gas useful non-Russians with
lower dosages of "Cheremushka" to change their genes,
to make them cowards and to create secretly for usurpers,
Varag-Prussak, crawling at their feet in infamy and poverty,
to make Russia even stronger?

It's pretty rich for the leader of a country that just annexed part of another to talk about anyone else "pushing boundaries too far."

Hillary Clinton is ridiculous!

Apart from being shockingly corrupt she's very ignorant in terms of her comparison.
Putin didn't come up with an ideology based on racism, antisemitism, "lebensraum", didn't kill millions of people in Europe.

besides, anyone in the u.s. with some basic knowledge of Clinton's links (compaigns, Peter Paul, etc.) should know that she is not very trustful.
so, don't expect much from her.
