From the Daily Mail:
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Democrats must learn to 'lose with dignity' after their electoral defeat, and said it was 'not important' who hacked Democratic groups during the U.S. elections.
Putin spoke at length about the U.S. elections during his annual news conference in Moscow, where he also addressed nuclear proliferation and other issues.
Once again, he dismissed charges of interference in the elections – even echoing President-elect Donald Trump's various claims that perhaps the hacking had been done a '400-pound guy' lying on his bed, 'some guy in his home in New Jersey.'
'Maybe it was someone lying on the couch who did it,' Putin said.
The U.S. government has concluded that Russia was behind the hacks of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, and The Washington Post has reported that the CIA believes the hacks were intended to boost Trump.Yes, the same CIA that tried to get Karl Rove indicted.
More from the story:
Putin pointed to congressional races that Democrats also lost as a way of denying U.S. responsibility for the election results.
'Did we do that, too?' Putin asked sarcastically.
'They are losing on all fronts, but looking for the guilty ones outside,' he said.
He also credited Trump for tapping into the national mood and defying critics.
'Trump understood the mood of the people and kept going until the end, when nobody believed in him – except for you and me,' according to the Post's translation.Democrats are in denial that they overstepped their authority, ramming Obamacare down our throats and ruining the health insurance business along the way.
