Former Russian president Boris Yeltsin got so drunk during a visit to Washington that he was found standing outside the White House in his underpants trying to hail a cab to go and buy a pizza.

The following night he was mistaken for a drunken intruder when he was discovered stumbling around the basement of his guest house by secret service agents.

The drunken behaviour of Yeltsin, who was known for his fondness for vodka and died two years ago aged 76, were revealed by former US president Bill Clinton. Russian President Boris Yeltsin (L) taps his watch to end a White House press conference as US President Bill Clinton looks on in 1994

Russian President Boris Yeltsin taps his watch to end a White House press conference as US President Bill Clinton looks on in 1994

Clinton, who is no stranger to indiscretions of his own, sat down with historian Taylor Branch to give an "oral history" of his presidency.

The results of 70 taped interviews between Clinton and Branch, who were former flatmates from the 1970s, is a new book "The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President."

It would have been nice to hear what Boris would say about Clinton in a book.

Is there anything that is below that man’s dignity? Does he even know what dignity is?

He throws a man who can not defend himself under the bus for a buck or two. As always its a one sided story from the Clintons.

Maybe they should get that part from Ms. Lewinsky.

Yeltsin showed a massive pair of steel clankers when he stood on the tank in Moscow. He helped the USSR go “poof”. RIP

Clinton: Taylor "Branch"? I though Taylor Swift was coming over. She needs some special comforting after Kanye was mean to her.

Which one? This story is about some of the tapes made while Clinton was being interviewed, so he is telling some old stories.

From the story: The drunken behaviour of Yeltsin, who was known for his fondness for vodka and died two years ago aged 76,

I remember that day. He may have not been able to handle his liquor, but there was a moment when he stood up to the USSR, and history will never be the same.

This is yet another attempt to besmirch the memory of Boris Nikolayevich, the Liberator.

Pure spite from the Left and nothing more.

At least Yeltsin was human, unlike most of his enemies.

---Other subjects covered included Clinton's view of George Bush, describing him as "unqualified" to be president.---

Mr. Yeltsin a) clearly had a problem with alcohol, and b) is dead. Therefore there is nothing at all to be gained by Bill Clinton dredging up and spreading tabloid gossip of this nature. Truly shameless and classless.

I loved Yeltsin - he was a drunk but really funny to watch when they caught him on film.

He also had brass ones for standing on the tank.

I have been known to run outside on our wuttle pasture naked and piss in 15 degree weather just for fun....my boys do it too

something primal about it...like fire in deep woods or holding your baby up to the stars asking for God’s acknowledgement or making a good shot on that animal you’re soon to eat

it drives wifey crazy...

and I don’t even drink..much

God bless Boris

Y'know, the jokes really *do* write themselves:

I recall a clip in which Yeltsin is looking at Clinton who is laughing uncontrollably (both were dressed, however) and has his hand across Y's shoulders.

This was the Ghost of Boris Yeltsin. He was drunk and upset that he had to share the White House guest room with the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt.

GW Bush didn’t have a birth certificate?!!!

Who is Bill Clinton to speak out about “qualifications”?

His draft dodge and protest on foreign soil in wartime made him a suspect candidate. Depends on the meaning of “treason” and “perjury”.
