Putin: Creators of Trump's 'golden shower' dossier are 'worse than prostitutes'


Vladimir Putin has said that the Obama administration is trying to undermine the legitimacy of President-elect Donald Trump, according to the Associated Press.

The Russian president, speaking at a news conference Tuesday, said that the recent dossier containing unverified news alleging that Trump participated in "golden showers" while in Moscow are "fake." He added that whoever came up with the claims are "worse than prostitutes," according to the AP.

Putin described the dossier as President Barack Obama's administration trying to "undermine the legitimacy of the president-elect" after his "convincing" victory over Hillary Clinton.

BuzzFeed published the dossier "making explosive — but unverified" allegations against the president-elect. It alleged that the Russian government has been "cultivating, supporting and assisting" Trump for years.

The dossier included what BuzzFeed calls "specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians."

"According to Source D, where s/he had been present, TRUMP's (perverted) conduct in Moscow included hiring the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, where he knew President and Mrs OBAMA (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia, and defiling the bed where they had slept by employing a number of prostitutes to perform a 'golden showers' (urination) in front of him."

Trump and his team have repeatedly called the allegations fake news. It appears Putin agrees.

What Putin and Trump have said about each other
At the end of 2015, Vladimir Putin lauded Trump's presidential campaign, calling him "an absolute leader of the presidential race, as we see it." 
In response to Putin's compliments Trump said: "It is always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond."
Putin has called Trump a "very outstanding man" and "unquestionably talented."
When Russia continued its military buildup in Syria and Putin backed the country's President Bashar al-Assad in 2015, Trump declared the Russian leader earned an "A" in leadership. 
Trump not only gave the Russian leader an "A," he also said Putin has been a better leader than US President Barack Obama. "He is really very much of a leader," Trump said of Putin. "The man has very strong control over his country. Now, it's a very different system, and I don't happen to like the system, but certainly in that system he's been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader." 
At a national security forum in September, Trump explained his friendly relationship with Putin saying: "If he says great things about me, I'm going to say great things about him." 
When asked about allegations that Putin orchestrated the deaths of his political opponents and journalists, Trump defended Putin: "I haven't seen any evidence that he killed anybody."
After Trump won the election November 8, Putin sent the president-elect a telegram congratulating him on his victory.
