Amid a growing number of global crises, chief among them being the growing tension between Russia and Ukraine, President Barack Obama finally got the chance to weigh in on an issue that appears to have been troubling ABC News.
Would he save Russian President Vladimir Putin if he were drowning?
Earlier this month, a six-year-old Russian girl asked Putin if he thought the American president would save him if he found himself drowning.
Being the consummate politician, Putin said he did not have a close personal relationship with Obama, but then added, “I think Obama is a courageous and good person. For sure he would save me.”
During a press conference in South Korea this week, ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, seemingly with nothing better on his mind, got a chance to pose the question to the president.
“I absolutely would save Mr. Putin if he were drowning,” Obama responded. “I’d like to think if anyone were out there drowning, I would save them. I used to be a pretty good swimmer. I grew up in Hawaii.”
And there you have it.
