NBC host Megyn Kelly got absolutely destroyed by Russian President Vladimir Putin during a recent interview.
In the interview, Kelly asked Putin about stories of him silencing his media and killing journalists.
“Many Americans hear the name Vladimir Putin and they think he runs a country full of corruption, a country in which journalists who are too critical could wind up murdered, a country in which dissidents could wind up in jail or worse,” Kelly began.
“To people who believe that, what is your message?” she asked.
“I want to say that Russia is developing along a democratic path, that is certain and no one should have any doubt about that,” he responded.
“Why do you feel you have the right to ask us these kinds of questions and do it all the time to moralize and give us lessons on how to live?” he said.
“We’re ready to listen to comments, when it’s done constructively, with the goal of establishing a relationship, creating a common environment,” Putin said. “But we will absolutely not accept when these sorts of things are used as an instrument of political conflict.
“I want everyone to know that. That’s our message.”
Ouch! That was a solid answer by Putin. The man may receive a lot of flack for his policies, but he sticks to his principles and that is admirable.
