This we can believe. Obama wants to give the impression that he’s the big person in the world, the only adult. But when he doesn’t get his way he turns into the biggest toddler of them all.
A former CIA agent claims that Vladimir Putin was ‘the only adult in the room’ after Obama expelled Russian diplomats from the US over a hacking row.
Mr Obama last week expelled the 35 diplomats over the hacking of US political groups during the 2016 presidential election.
The US government accused them of ‘acting in a manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status’ – a euphemism for spying – and gave them 72 hours to leave the country.
The Russian government dismissed hacking allegations as absurd but Mr Putin declined to order a tit-for-tat expulsion of American diplomats, claiming he would not ‘stoop’ to Obama’s level.
He said he would consider the actions of President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office on January 20, when deciding on further steps in Russia-U.S. relations.
