While President Obama attempted to look macho in the photo the White House released of his conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, it failed to reveal how phony the man really is.
Meanwhile, Putin had his girlfriend answer the phone and below the photo of them is the Kremlin’s official response from the Russian government website.

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the United States Barack Obama on the American side’s initiative.
The two presidents discussed in detail various aspects of the extraordinary situation in Ukraine.
In reply to Mr Obama’s concern over the possibility of the use of Russian armed forces on the territory of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin drew his attention to the provocative and criminal actions on the part of ultranationalists who are in fact being supported by the current authorities in Kiev.
The Russian President spoke of a real threat to the lives and health of Russian citizens and the many compatriots who are currently on Ukrainian territory. Vladimir Putin stressed that in case of any further spread of violence to Eastern Ukraine and Crimea, Russia retains the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population of those areas.
Personally I think Putin was fishing for a sucker….
