Video: Noam Chomsky on Russian Hysteria - “It is a Joke”

From The Humanist Report, a progressive political podcast that discusses and analyzes current news events and pressing political issues. "Our analyses are guided by humanism and political progressivism. Each news story we cover is supplemented with thought-provoking, fact-based commentary that aims for the highest level of objectivity."


“I will tell you something that you probably already know. I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but the United States, everywhere, all over the world, actively interferes with electoral campaigns of other countries,” Putin continued.

“Put your finger anywhere on a map of the world and everywhere you will hear complaints that American officials are interfering in internal electoral processes.”

When Kelly responded, “that sounds like a justification,” Putin shot back, “It does not sound like a justification. It sounds like a statement of fact. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.”

Wait, what? Did he just spill the beans?

“But, I repeat: We don’t even have to do that,” Putin added quickly. “Presidents come and go and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change,” insisted Putin, who apparently has not been keeping up with last several months in the U.S.

“That’s why, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t care who’s the head of the United States,” Putin insisted stoutly.

NBC's Megyn Kelly sits down for an exclusive interview with President Vladimir Putin, asking him about allegations that the Russians interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
