If you don’t know by now, these two men are not besties.
After Russia gave whistleblower Edward Snowden one year asylum, tension between the country and the United States has increased tremendously.
Earlier this week, President Obama even canceled a one-on-one meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin. Needless to say, the Russians weren’t happy.
However, there are ways for Putin to salvage the situation. If Putin wants to cultivate decent relations with the United States government, there are a number of things he can do to get back on President Obama’s good side again.
He can start by loosening up and being more fun to be around. Good knock, knock jokes never fail. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Not President Obama at your meeting!
If he would stop mocking our president, then maybe Obama would like him a bit better. Putin, you’re such a copy-cat!
If Putin would stop mean-mugging like he’s part of a lineup and be more friendly like President Obama, getting back on good terms with Obama won’t be that difficult.
This face won’t do either……
If Putin was more of an outgoing guy and joined in on the inside jokes that Obama has with other international politicians, he would be more enjoyable to be around. He makes the saying “Three’s a crowd” true.
If Putin stopped cheating when he’s playing rock, paper, scissors with Obama, our president could grow fonder of him. Putin knows Obama had paper first!
And how you gonna invite Obama to a dining event and not have any famous Chicago deep dish pizza, Putin? Help a brother out!
Putin could also look more interested when important international topics are being discussed. He always looks like he’s about to fall asleep.
If Putin could actually get chairs for their meetings that would not have Obama’s butt constantly falling asleep, that might help too.
