According To Vladimir Putin, Bad Days Only Exist If You're A Woman

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been quite chatty these days. He recently sat down for a highly-publicized interview with NBC’s Megyn Kelly for the debut episode of her new Sunday evening program, and he’s been spending some time chatting with filmmaker Oliver Stone, who is putting together a documentary on the Russian leader. While Putin’s interview with Kelly generated plenty of headlines, he would save his most eyebrow-raising comments for his chat with Stone.

As The Guardian shares, Putin indicated that he never has bad days. While that’s an incredibly optimistic outlook on life to have, Putin’s reasoning for his good fortune raises a ton of different questions.

“I am not a woman, so I don’t have bad days. I am not trying to insult anyone. That’s just the nature of things,” he said. “There are certain natural cycles.”

Putin’s take has been less than well-received, to say the least. We can see why he decided not to share those thoughts with Kelly, being that she’s a woman and all. That wasn’t the only nugget that Putin offered up in the interview. He chatted with Stone about the perceived persecution of gay people in Russia, but he denied that was going on. However, he did acknowledge that he would not be comfortable showering next to a gay person.

“I prefer not to go to the shower with him. Why provoke him? But you know, I’m a judo master,” he said.

The judo master would go on to offer up some fascinating thoughts about Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency whistleblower that wound up in Moscow. Putin’s account of how that went down differs from the official narrative that has made the rounds.

“Our first contact with Mr Snowden was in China,” he said. “We were told back then that this was a person who wanted to fight against violations of human rights.”

He also pointed out that there was nothing wrong with what Snowden did, at least in his mind.

“Snowden is not a traitor. He did not betray the interests of his country. Nor did he transfer any information to any other country which would have been pernicious to his own country or to his own people,” he said. “The only thing Snowden does, he does publicly.”

Sounds like Stone’s film about Putin is going to be a must-watch. Regardless of feelings about the Russian leader, the fact remains that he’s a fascinating man that generally operates under a cloud of secrecy. To receive some insight into the man and how his mind works is somewhat priceless, and we would expect Stone’s film to gain some serious traction.

The pair would also touch on Putin’s own mortality, as Stone would directly ask him if he was ever concerned with his own assassination.

“They say those who are destined to be hanged are not going to drown,” Putin replied.

Get your popcorn ready for this one, as you can be certain there’s a whole bunch other nuggets that have yet to be revealed.
