President Joe Biden made a “killer” remark about Russia’s Vladimir Putin and it did not appear to sit very well.

Biden basically suggested that Putin was a “killer” because it would take one to know one.

Putin responded with a slightly cryptic message, wishing Joe Biden good health.

But Putin followed up his message saying it was without irony and not a joke.

Here’s the scoop:

In an ABC News interview broadcast on Wednesday that prompted Russia to recall its Washington ambassador for consultations, Biden said “I do” when asked if he believed Putin was a killer.

Biden was quick to extend a nuclear arms pact with Russia after he took office. But his administration has said it will take a tougher line with Moscow than Washington did during Donald Trump’s term in office, and engage only when there is a tangible benefit for the United States.
And another scoop:

Responding to President Biden’s comments that he thinks Russia’s president is a killer, Vladimir Putin suggested Thursday that the U.S. leader is projecting his own flaws and wished his American counterpart “good health.”

“I say that without irony and not as a joke,” Putin said.
Biden’s remarks in an ABC News interview broadcast Wednesday prompted the Kremlin to summon its ambassador to the United States back to Moscow to discuss how to proceed with the “very bad” relations between the two countries.
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov also seemed to imply that they could get worse, warning Thursday that Russia’s response to Biden’s remarks will be “absolutely clear.” He didn’t elaborate.

“It’s clear that [Biden] doesn’t want to normalize relations with our country. This is what we’ll be guided by from now on,” Peskov said.Click to expand…
