But the Russian leader can't help but notice that there is worry in the American people.

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands went into the streets in protest, he notes.

After all, several Russians were skeptical when Putin himself took the office in Russia.

He too had his critics.

But no more.


Still, it has been only one day in office and there are already massive protests on the streets of the country.

"You're not off to a great start, man," Putin tells Trump. "I thought you'd be better at this."

There are some good points, though.

Just look at how many people showed up at the inauguration.


Despite the crowds, Putin points out that on Saturday Trump and his spokesman claimed to have a huge crowd in DC.

"Today you went to the CIA and said 1 million people came to see you in DC?" Putin asks.

Look, take some advice from someone who knows.
