WASHINGTON — Joe Biden has now jumped on the anti-Putin bandwagon by saying that the Russian president doesn’t have a soul.

biden and putinReuters reported that Obama’s vice president Joe Biden concluded that Putin had no soul after a 2011 meeting at the Kremlin.

The story came from an interview by the New Yorker. Biden told the magazine, “I said, ‘Mr. Prime Minister, I’m looking into your eyes, and I don’t think you have a soul…He looked back at me, and he smiled, and he said, ‘We understand one another.'”

This was a contrast to Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, who said, “I looked the man in the eye … I was able to get a sense of his soul.”

These comments came after Russia has been blamed for the downing of a Malaysian commercial airline MH17 in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russia rebels control the area. All 298 people on board died.
