French actor Gerard Depardieu recently decided he did not want to conform to France’s new 75 percent tax rate. As an alternative, he has become a Russian citizen.
Yesterday, he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin and was granted a Russian passport.
Some call Depardieu a traitor because of his actions.
Laura Ingraham remains outraged that Putin has vowed to sign a bill that would prevent Americans from adopting Russian children.
These days, Putin is surely looking forward to Obama’s post-election flexibility.
