Speaking at a press conference with Molodovan president Igor Dodon in the Kremlin on Tuesday, Mr Putin said the dossier was “an obvious fake” and ridiculed the suggestion that the Russian secret services “chase after every American billionaire.”
He also suggested Mr Trump would not have fallen for a honey trap if one had been laid, asking: “He arrived here and immediately ran off to meet Moscow prostitutes?”
“This is an adult and, moreover, a man who for many years has organised beauty contests. He socialized with the most beautiful women in the world. I can hardly imagine he rushed to the hotel to meet our girls of lower social responsibility -even though they are the best in the world, of course.”
“We are witnessing an ongoing acute political struggle in the US, whose task is to undermine the legitimacy of the president-elect,” he said. “The people doing this are doing enormous damage to American national interests.”
And isn’t girls of lower social responsibility such a lovely way of phrasing it?
