Putin said it’s “ludicrous” to believe Assad used chemical weapons. McCain says it’s “ludicrous” to believe the rebels used chemical weapons. Putin’s theory makes more sense.
You can’t be serious.. as if Putin has no reason to lie about the situation?
At this point I rate Obama the bigger liar.
“You cant be serious.. as if Putin has no reason to lie about the situation?”
And you think that obuma doesn’t lie? Buckwheat is truthful about two things:
