‘Don’t Be Mad At The Mirror If You’re Ugly’
During an interview filmed in Moscow last week with NBC, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a major left hook to the jaw of the “Biden” administration. When asked about his jailing of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, Putin replied by making the comparison to the arrest of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol on January 6th, many of whom still remained locked up to this day.
A close follower of the political climate and events in the US, he pointed to the January 6th- mega-MAGA arrest at the Capitol, saying: “Do you know that 450 individuals were arrested after entering the Congress? … They came there with political demands.”
Mr. Putin accused the US of ‘persecuting political opinions’ for arresting the MAGA protestors telling NBC, “We have a saying: ‘Don’t be mad at the mirror if you are ugly'”. He went on, “It has nothing to do with you personally. But if somebody blames us for something, what I say is, why don’t you look at yourselves? You will see yourselves in the mirror, not us.”
Vladimir went on the offensive, “Who ordered the assassination of the woman who walked into the Congress and who was shot and killed by a policeman?” Putin asked, referring to Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot by an unidentified Capitol Policeman as she attempted to climb through a window leading to the House floor.

Mr. Putin denied that the Kremlin was behind the (nerve agent) poisoning of Navalny that nearly killed him last year saying “We don’t have this kind of habit, of assassinating anybody.” He also denied allegations that Russia is carrying out cyberattacks against the U.S., calling them baseless. “Where is the evidence? Where is the proof?” He demanded to know, adding “It´s becoming farcical.” Putin continued, “We have been accused of all kinds of things – election interference, cyberattacks and so on and so forth – and not once, not once, not one time, did they bother to produce any kind of evidence or proof, just unfounded accusations.”
