It Is Not Like His Word Is Worth Anything

10/21/20 Fox News:

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the U.S. Democratic Party is closer to the "Social Democratic ideas" that gave rise to communism -- but added that he’d work with whoever is elected president in November. 

He said the shared values of the Soviet Communist Party and the U.S. Democratic Party could form the “ideological basis” of a U.S.-Russia relationship if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected. 

“As for the Democratic candidate, what can I say? We can hear rather sharp anti-Russian rhetoric, as well. Regrettably, we have become used to this,” Putin said in an interview this week with Russia’s state-owned Rossiya TV.

“But… the Democratic Party is traditionally closer to the so-called liberal values, closer to Social Democratic ideas, if compared to Europe. And it was from the Social Democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved.”

If a Republican said that it would be extreme right-wing Red-baiting.
