Biden to Putin, ‘I don’t think you have a soul.’ He responded, ‘We understand one another.’

When asked if he could trust Russian president Vladimir Putin at a 2001 summit in Slovenia, President George W. Bush famously said he looked Putin in the eye and “was able to get a sense of his soul; a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country.”

President Joe Biden looked Putin in the eye and saw something different.

In the new Hulu documentary “Two Men at War” by ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, Biden recalled meeting with Putin at the Kremlin in 2011 — a story he also shared in a 2014 profile in The New Yorker by Evan Osnos.

“You said you know he doesn’t have a soul,” Stephanopoulos said in an interview with Biden recorded in March 2021.

“I did say that to him, yes,” Biden said. “And his response was ‘We understand one another.’ I wasn’t being a wise guy, I was alone with him in his office. That’s how it came about. It was when President Bush had said, ‘I’ve looked in his eyes and saw his soul.’ I said, ‘I looked in your eyes and I don’t think you have a soul,’ and [he] looked back at me, he said, ‘We understand each other.'”

“So you know Vladimir Putin,” Stephanopoulos said. “You think he’s a killer?

“Mm-hmm. I do,” Biden said.

“Two Men at War,” exploring Putin’s and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s backgrounds, leadership styles, and relationships with the West amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, is currently streaming on Hulu.

  1. Two men both very dangerous to the world and their countries. One weckless and does what he wants, no thought to the future or consequences. The other old, senile and being manipulated by others, and committing all kinds of crimes against his country and fellow man. They need retirement very bad.

  2. When you listen to just soundbites of the rhetoric of talking to the people they represent, you don’t know which is which since they both lie and spread false narrative.

  3. Biden claims to have a soul while he is becoming known at the abortion president. Nobody has pushed for abortion rights more than him. So Mr. Biden, exactly what is the condition of your soul? Jesus says to “judge a tree by its fruit!” He goes on to say ” a good tree cannot bear bad fruit and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.”

  4. Biden is worse than Putin, putin does not hide his evil intentions against Ukraine, but at least putin is not inviting people to invade Russia, biden is doing nothing to stop the invasion of America in fact he is helping illegals to invade this country, so which do you deem the greater evil?
