Filmmaker Oliver Stone just offered to ask Vlad Putin to be his daughter’s godfather, so where’s the outrage?

“Was Oliver stoned?” asked the New York Post.

In a odd turn of events, Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone asked Russia President Vladimir Putin to be his 22-year-old daughter’s godfather.

Stone threw out the idea at a meeting with Putin in Moscow last month, according to the newspaper, which prompted the Russian leader to ask, “Does she want to become an Orthodox Christian?”

“We’ll make her that,” Stone replied, in response to his daughter Tara Chong Stone’s religious affiliation.

With Democrats making Putin and Russia public enemy one in their unhinged quest to take down President Donald Trump, Stone’s desire didn’t sit well with them.

The Daily Beast referred to Stone as the “bootlicking filmmaker” in reporting on the development, adding that Putin “appeared to wriggle his way out of the proposal” by saying, “You have to ask her.”

According to transcripts released by the Kremlin, Stone mentioned Putin being the godfather to the children of Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk — Putin told him Russian Orthodox tradition says a person can’t refuse a request to be named a child’s godfather.

“Oh, you cannot refuse it? I thought it was a big honor for you to be the godfather of his daughter,” Stone said.

After determining that Putin was godfather to several people, Stone said, “Otherwise, I would ask you to be the godfather for my daughter.”

Equally unappetizing to liberals is that Stone is apparently not on board with all the gender insanity on the left.

“Stone went on to complain about ‘American culture,’ taking particular issue with what he described as a focus on gender identity and people labeling themselves as ‘transgender’ and ‘cisgender,'” the Daily Beast reported.

Perhaps, Stone, who directed anti-establishment films like “Platoon,” “JFK,” and “Born of the Fourth of July” is a closet social conservative after all, slow to emerge?

The online news site said Stone brought up a controversial 2013 Russian law banning “homosexual propaganda” among minors.

“It seems like maybe that’s a sensible law,” Stone reportedly said.

The interview took place last month, before Stone announced the upcoming premiere of his new documentary “Revealing Ukraine.”

“When these lands that are now the core of Ukraine joined Russia … nobody thought of themselves as anything but Russians,” Putin told Stone.

The Daily Beast panned the film “as a promotional spot for pro-Russian Ukrainian politician and Putin ally Viktor Medvedchuk.”

Transcripts also showed that Putin denied any interference in the 2016 U.S. election

“I did not interfere then,” he said. “I do not want to interfere now, and I am not going to interfere in the future.”

Putin also commented on the “lack of respect for the will of the voters,” in response to the ongoing opposition to Trump from “the losing side.”

“I think it was unprecedented in the history of the United States,” he said, according to the transcripts.

Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
