Putin was addressing his annual news conference Friday when he responded to media questions about the recent U.S. presidential election. Trump approved Putin’s observation by saying, “So true!”
Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: “In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity.” So true!

When asked about the Russian interference in the U.S. election, Putin said that today’s (Obama) administration is dividing the nation.
“The call for the electors not to vote for either candidate, in this case, not to vote for the President-elect, was quite simply a step towards dividing the nation,” Putin said.
“They (Democrats) are losing on all fronts and looking for scapegoats on whom to lay the blame. I think that this is an affront to their own dignity. It is important to know how to lose gracefully,” Putin added.
The Russian President was also asked about President Barack Obama’s assertion at his farewell news conference, when Obama said 37 percent of Republicans sympathize with Putin.
“The current U.S. administration and leaders of the Democratic Party are trying to blame all their failures on outside factors,” Putin responded.
He added that Republican voters’ support is not for me personally as President of Russia, but a large number of American people share similar views with us on the world’s organization.
The Inauguration Day ceremony will take place on January 20, 2017 when Trump is scheduled to begin his four-year term as President.
Meanwhile, a leading filmmaker Michael Moore believes that Americans can still overturn the outcome of the U.S. presidential election that Trump won by defeating his rival Hillary Clinton.
Moore also dismissed the election of Trump by the Electoral College electors saying that the process has benefitted the candidate who spewed racism and hate.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee is making all preparations to ensure a smooth ceremony. It has created a dedicated website for the inauguration.
The site states that the country is “once again establishing a government of, by and for the people, as we, the people, Make America Great Again!”
