Biden: ‘Nobody Believes We’re Going to Take Down... I Was Talking About Taking Down Putin’

‘Because it’s ridiculous’

EXCERPT:

BIDEN: "Because it’s ridiculous. Nobody believes we're going to take down — I was talking about taking down Putin. Nobody believes that. Number one. Number two, what have I been talking about since this all began? The only war that’s worse than the one intended is one that’s unintended. The last thing I want to do is engage in a land war or a nuclear war with Russia. That’s not part of it. I was expressing my outrage at the behavior of this man. It’s outrageous, it’s outrageous. And it’s more an aspiration than anything, he shouldn’t be in power. There's not — people like this shouldn’t be ruling countries, but they do. The fact they do, but doesn’t mean I can’t express my outrage about it."
