Hillary Clinton Does Her Best Vladimir Putin Impression

If you thought Barack Obama acts too much like an imperialistic president, you better get ready for Hillary. She’s even worked up an impersonation of Russian President Vladimir Putin as part of her portfolio.

Hillary was in Canada when she offered up her Putin impersonation “while trying to explain the difference between how the United States elects politicians and how other countries do (wink, wink – Russia), Clinton put on a Russian accent and performed a mock conversation she imagines Putin had with himself when deciding he wanted to be president.”

Putin isn’t much of a fan of Hillary, either.

In June, Putin told French TV Clinton has never been “too graceful” with her comments, but that “it’s best not to argue with a woman.” And in April, Clinton described Putin’s behavior and personality to those she would encounter on an elementary school playground.

Clinton’s event in Canada today was her first public appearance of 2015. Although she is widely expected to announce a run for president sometime this spring, Clinton did not address her own political aspirations.

Clinton also expressed some support for Obama: “The president has been very successful.”
