Local Cab Drivers Like Putin
Just an observation.
Every time I take a cab and the driver finds out that I grew up in Russia, they ask me the same question:
– Do you like Putin?
And, without waiting for my answer, they continue:
– I like Putin.
Then the sentiment of a strong man who is not afraid of anything and anyone follows for ten-twenty-thirty minutes depending on how long it takes to get me to the destination of the trip.
Cab drivers in America speak all languages of the world.
For the most part, they escape from their own dictators or authoritarian leaders and come here for freedom and better life.
Then, where does this phenomenon of liking Putin come from?
