UK Brexit Leader Farage Praises Putin, Slams Obama

Nigel Farage, leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, told Fox News that President Obama 'behaved disgracefully,' while President Putin 'behaved like a statesmen' in the wake of the Brexit vote.


Short transcript:

"People said enough. We want to govern our own country, we want to make our own laws, we want our own Supreme Court to be supreme, and we want to control our borders. And that now is what must happen."

"Vladimir Putin behaved in a more statesmanlike manner than President Obama did in this referendum campaign. Obama came to Britain, and I think, behaved disgracefully, telling us we’d be at the back of the queuetreating us, America’s strongest, oldest ally, in this most extraordinary way. Vladimir Putin maintained his silence throughout the whole campaign. I’m not a fan of Vladimir Putin. But you know, the Ukrainian crisis actually was sparked by the European Union saying they wanted to extend their borders to take in the Ukraine, which Putin took as being a direct threat. Now, my view on Putin and the Russians is, don’t poke the Russian bear with a stick. If you do, you’re bound to get a response."
