Putin Denies Having Prior Knowledge Of Detained Belarusian Journalist


  1. Tu quoque, (Latin for “you also”), is an informal fallacy that intends to discredit the opponent’s argument by attacking the opponent’s own personal behavior as being inconsistent with the argument’s conclusion(s). This specious reasoning is a special type of ad hominem attack. Also known as, “whataboutism”.

    1. That’s because countries create LAW. Whataboutism is a fallacy in a personal setting, but if we’re talking in international politics where things CAN have legal repurcussions, whataboutism is actually completely valid if you’re not the first person breaking the precedent.

      Countries set the rules, and Putin is one who embodies the ability to act accordingly. You don’t compare a ruler to a common citizen.

  2. Did Putin deny it or did he strongly deny it? If he strongly denied it, I’m OK with us throwing our intelligence services under the bus.

    1. Ha. I see what you did there. Next, you’ll say you don’t know why Putin would do it. 24 hours later, you’ll say you meant you don’t know why he. WOULD’NT do it. 😉

  3. America’s Donald Trump unequestioningly accepts Vlad’s strong and powerful denial.
    And he would say so if his blog hadn’t been scrapped due to lack of public interest.

  4. Reminds me of the time the Stable Genius said, “There’s no reason why I shouldn’t trust Putin over the US intelligence reports, because Putin said very strongly, he didn’t do anything.”

  5. President Putin we have a call from Mar A Lago:
    Putin: Hello
    Trump: How high master?
    Putin: I didn’t say jump yet

    1. @V truth doesn’t seem to hurt you. You must be from the land of the freak and home of the cowards

  6. So the pilot was given the option to land or not to land? That is not how it happened..HE was told he had to land and he was escorted down by fighter jets!!He had no choice! Putin is full of poop and his buddy tRump make such a great couple!

  7. Hah, Vladimir Putin denies having prior knowledge of the detained Belarusian journalist with his usual “I don’t know about this” response. Yet, he is mentioning about Edward Snowden, that traitor who betrayed America. This is why Vladimir Putin is still a corrupt autocratic thug. This is the same Vladimir Putin who admires Donald J. Trump while saying negative statements about us Americans.

  8. Republicans in congress will be watching the interview intently thinking he might give them a secret message.

  9. Because everyone is interested in the thoughts and opinions of a dictator who murders his political opponents and attacks the US, right?

  10. Just like Trump said about Putin denying having interfied in US election and Trump said he believed hım. A dictator covering for each other.

  11. Putin has also denied meddling in the 2016 election. His denials are like a guy in prison denying they committed a crime.
