How Putin ‘Played’ Obama with NYTimes Op-Ed
Putin is making us look foolish, but at least he is keeping us out of this war.

In the “high-stakes international chess game” that is the diplomatic crisis with Syria, The Five’s Eric Bolling knows who’s winning. And he has the giant chess pieces to prove it. The Five opened Thursday afternoon with a look at Russian President Vladimir Putin’s New York Times op-ed that argues against a U.S. strike in Syria and challenges the notion of American exceptionalism.
The hosts didn’t fault the Times for running the piece, but did say it was “embarrassing” for President Obama. Putting her press secretary hat on, Dana Perino said, “I don’t think I would have been mad at The New York Times, because I understand business. They want eye balls to go to their website, they want to sell a lot of papers, get attention.” She did she she would be mad at the American PR professionals who helped put the piece together, because “he doesn’t speak English that well.”
“Don’t you think this is just another example of Putin playing with the United States of America?” Andrea Tantaros asked Bolling, who wholeheartedly agreed.
