Megyn Kelly Hurls Easy Questions to Putin in Interview

NBC’s Megyn Kelly recently got to sit down with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and did not seem to ask any questions that we found useful. It all pandered to him and his Russian government, avoiding the pressing issues that the people need answers to. The final question that Kelly asked Putin was,

“We have been here in St. Petersburg for about a week now. And virtually every person we have met on the street says what they respect about you is they feel that you have returned dignity to Russia, that you’ve returned Russia to a place of respect. You’ve been in the leadership of this country for 17 years now. Has it taken any sort of personal toll on you?”

A former CIA Russia analyst told the Hufffington Post,

“I can’t begin to tell you what this did for Putin’s ego, and I wouldn’t put it past the Kremlin to use it for propaganda purposes. Putin’s obsession is, by his definition, making Russia great again. He’s obsessed with the idea that he has returned the country to what he sees as the glory days of the USSR. He feels that since the breakup of the USSR, Russia has too often ceded ground where it shouldn’t have. And he’s obsessed with people seeing him as the one who brought dignity back to Russia.”

A former CIA Russia analyst said, in reference to the final question by Kelly,

“I can’t begin to tell you what this did for Putin’s ego, and I wouldn’t put it past the Kremlin to use it for propaganda purposes.”
