Vladimir Putin Thinks The Reason He Never Has Bad Days Is Because He’s A Man

Is it bad that I kind of, sort of, f*ck with Putin?

You know, other than the fact he’s a war-monger who invades sovereign nations, the dude is pretty hilarious.

Whether it be riding shirtless on the back of a horse, playing on a beer league hockey team, or waving at passing birds, if Putin is good for anything, he’s good for a relatively entertaining headline.

And if you know anything about Vladimir Putin, then you know the dude also doesn’t have much respect for women (also another thing that’s not so chill about him), so it should come as no surprise that he legitimately believes he never has bad days because he’s ‘not a woman.’

via CNBC:

Russian President Vladimir Putin is always at his best, he tells director Oliver Stone in a new documentary called “The Putin Interviews” that will air on Showtime June 12-15. The politician attributes his stamina and stability in part to the fact that he’s a man.

As Bloomberg reports, “‘I am not a woman, so I don’t have bad days,’ he tells Stone while giving a tour of the Kremlin’s gilded throne room. ‘I am not trying to insult anyone. That’s just the nature of things. There are certain natural cycles.’”

Just so we’re clear, it’s not the sexism I find funny, but more the way it was packaged. It’s similar to how some stand-up comics are funnier because of their delivery than the actual context of the joke. I mean, the guy once said that Russian prostitutes are undoubtedly ‘the best in the world’, how do you not laugh at that?

The sheer notion of a world leader bragging about the quality of his nation’s hookers is inherently funny, just like Putin genuinely believing he doesn’t have because he’s not a woman is inherently funny.
