Putin: Give Sepp Blatter the Nobel; Trump should be president

Ole Vlad's figured out how to troll the west: celebrate corrupt, populist strongmen who brazenly lie while fronting for the rich and powerful.

On Trump: "He is a very outstanding man, unquestionably talented… It's not up to us to judge his virtue, that is up to US voters, but he is the absolute leader of the presidential race."

On Blatter (the criminal kingpin of FIFA): "He has always tried to treat football not as a sport but as an element of cooperation between countries and peoples. He is the one who must be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize."
