Why Putin Won’t Reveal the Names and Ages of His Grandchildren

Compare Putin’s sanity to the sick publicity-seeking of such amoral filth such as Donald Trump and the Clintons (and their dysfunctional families). I needn’t add anything more.

As a popular and influential world leader, V V Putin faces a serious dilemma… how can his family expect to lead a normal dignified existence when there are so many crazy people with selfie sticks who’d love to chase them down in the streets of Moscow? Of course, this is more or less standard practise in the “civilised” Anglo-Saxon world, where they fawn over royal babies from birth, who then later in life develop cocaine habits; and in America, they even make goofy movies starring Sinbad about the First Kid. Imagine the psychological trauma. Putin doesn’t want his grandchildren growing up to be Chelsea Clinton. Therefore, on Thursday, during his nationally broadcasted Q&A session, he made it clear why he doesn’t parade his family around the Kremlin for the tabloid press (in fact, he doesn’t even feel the need to divulge the names of his grandchildren, or even how old they are):

You know, my children, my daughters, live a normal life here in Moscow, contrary to all rumours. I also have grandchildren. They live a normal life, too. I don’t want them to grow up as “blue bloods”; I want them to develop into normal human beings. For that, they need ordinary human interaction as part of a children’s community. Once I expose their ages and names, they’d harass them immediately. That would damage a child’s development. Therefore, I’d like to ask you to treat my position with understanding.

We can already imagine the Daily Beast headline:

“Putin threatens to kill journalists who stalk his infant grandchildren”.
