Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that he doesn’t take days off work because he’s “not a woman.”
Putin told filmmaker Oliver Stone that, “I am not a woman, so I don’t have bad days.”
He insisted that he wasn’t trying to be offensive, but just referring to biological reality. “I am not trying to insult anyone,” he said. “That’s just the nature of things. There are certain natural cycles.”
According to the Daily Caller:
He ignited a media firestorm in 2014 after making comments about Hillary Clinton that were described as sexist.
“It’s better not to argue with women. But Ms. Clinton has never been too graceful in her statements,” he said.
“When people push boundaries too far, it’s not because they are strong but because they are weak,” Putin added. “But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman.”
Given the left-wing’s existing contempt for Putin, his remarks are certain to fuel the fire of feminist outrage against him.
