Russian party calls for wifeless presidents, outlawing Greenpeace

The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, said on Wednesday that world leaders should not be married because their wives change them, RIA Novosti reported.

According to Zhirinovsky, US President Barack Obama has started to look bad because of his wife Michelle.

"Look, Obama has physically changed a lot, he's turned green, he has more wrinkles, Michelle is to blame, Michelle has brought him to this," Zhirinovsky said.

He added that Monica Lewinsky had ruined former US President Bill Clinton as well, adding: "The leaders of the most powerful governments should be without wives."

Zhirinovsky said he would send a letter to Obama "to get rid of her (Michelle) as soon as possible."

"Let [Michelle] stay somewhere far away [from Barack] so that he can work his remaining years [as president]. We saved [Italian Prime Minister Silvio] Berlusconi from these wifely problems, now it's time to save Obama," he said.

In another move by one of Zhirinovsky's LDPR deputies on Wednesday, Roman Khudyakov, also suggested on Wednesday to ban the environmental group Greenpeace from Russia because it harms Russia.

"Greenpeace takes our citizens hostage, damages their health, damages our legal economic interests in our country, and I suggest we outlaw them here in the territory of the Russian Federation," Khudyakov sai

Zhirinovsky and his LDPR political faction are renowned for their often comical demands.

Understate much?

Not sure about the wifeless Prrsidents...but getting rid of Greenpeace is a good idea.

I bet George Soros doesn’t like Zhirinovsky, either

If this article were from a British publication I would be tempted to call it satire.

That line of BO turning green and getting more wrinkles is kind of leading my ‘suspicion’....

They inadvertently make a good point (although it isn’t the point they wanted to make).

Ronald and Nancy Reagan were a real husband and wife, so she added to him.

George and Barbara Bush were a real husband and wife, so she added to him.

Bill and Hillary Clinton were a marriage made of political necessity. She permitted him to get into sexual trouble with other women to further her own political career.

George W. and Laura Bush were a real husband and wife.

Barack and Michelle Obama are a marriage made to “prove” Barack’s heterosexuality.

Greenpeace is a terrorist organization and should be treated as such. But on the “wifeless” president thing he brought up Lewinsky. Ummm, she wasn’t Clinton’s wife....
