I do not belong to any kind of outside political party. Back when President Barack Obama was running for re-election, however, many people had called me to ask who I would vote for.

I told them that I would vote for President Vladimir Putin of Russia. When they asked me why, I told them that I didn’t like either of the men who were running for president.

Then, a few week’s ago, we were on the border of attacking Syria. President Putin had made a deal with the Syrians to get rid of the poison gas that they used to kill all those innocent people, along with children.

I congratulate President Putin for being a smart person. I am so glad that President Obama agreed with him.
