Hillary Clinton's got jokes! While at a Washington, D.C., event in late May, the politician, 75, poked fun at Russian leader Vladimir Putin, describing him as a "short guy."

“He obviously works out all the time because, you know, he’s got his shoulders about as broad as they can be, given his size,” she said. “And he struts around and he particularly loves to embarrass or, you know, show his disdain for women leaders.”

Clinton recalled one time when Putin, 70, brought in a dog since he knew German Chancellor Angela Merkel was afraid of them. “He always manspreaded. That’s the way he [is]," she insisted.

She then spoke about how in 2011, she got Putin interested in their conversation because she spoke about Russia's wildlife.

Putin talked about going up to northern Russia to tag the region's polar bears, asking her, "Would your husband like to go with me?"

The businessman later elaborated that he could easily depend on Putin when he was in the White House.

“Remember when [the press] hit me with a question – ‘Who do you trust … your intelligence people, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Lisa Page, or Putin?’ And I said you know, that could be the toughest question I’ve ever been asked as a politician. And then when I really didn’t give them a very good answer in terms of exactness … all hell broke loose. But that’s OK, you know, that’s OK. And it turned out I was right. I was right about that, too,” he stated.
