Vladimir Putin's op-ed in the New York Times shows him to be the Larry David of international diplomacy. (2:42)

(LAUGHTER)I'LL TELL YOU, HOWEVER IT

CAME ABOUT, IT SEEMSVLADIMIR PUTIN SAVED THE

DAY HERE A LITTLE BIT.

AS LONG AS HE DOESN'TARROGANTLY AND PUBLICALLY SHOVE

THAT IN OURFACES I THINK THIS FRAGILE

NEW ARRANGEMENT COULD WORK.

>> THIS MORNING RUSSIANPRESIDENT PUTIN IS

CRITICIZING U.S. POLICY INAN OP ED IN "THE NEW YORK

TIMES".

SAYING U.S. MILITARY ACTIONIN SYRIA WOULD HURT

CIVILIANS AND SPREADCONFLICT.

>> Jon: FIRST OF ALL, "NEWYORK TIMES", THAT'S HOW YOU

REACH OUT TO AMERICANS?

(LAUGHTER)YOU'RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH

BUZZFEED OR-- MAYBE, I DON'TKNOW-- DUCK DYNASTY. I

DON'T KNOW, RIGHT THERESECOND OF ALL WHY ARE YOU

[BLEEP] ON US IN "THE NEWYORK TIMES".

JUST MOMENTS AFTER WESALUTED YOUR STATESMANSHIP?

YOU HAD TO SAY ONE MORETHING.

YOU'RE LIKE THE LARRY DAVIDOF INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMACY.

(LAUGHTER)BUT LOOK, REASONABLE PEOPLE

CAN DISAGREE ON SYRIA.

VLADIMIR PUTIN IS ENTITLEDTO HIS OPINION ON OUR

POLITICAL STRATEGY.

>> BUT NOW PUTIN IS TAKINGAIM AT OBAMA'S CLAIMS THAT

AMERICA IS AN EXCEPTIONALNATION.

>> Jon: OH NO YOU DID NOT.

(LAUGHTER)WHAT PART OF BUTTER ELVIS

DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND?

(LAUGHTER)>> STATING IT IS EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS TO ENCOURAGEPEOPLE TO SEE THEMSELVES AS

EXCEPTIONAL, WHATEVER THEMOTIVATION.

WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT, BUTWHEN WE ASK FOR THE LORD'S

BLESSINGS, WE MUST NOTFORGET THAT GOD CREATED US

EQUAL.

>> Jon: [BLEEP] IS THAT?

WHEN DID VLADIMIR PUTINSTART WATCHING OPRAH?

WHAT THE HELL?

AND BY THE WAY, VLADIMIR, IDON'T THINK YOU'RE THE BEST

GUY TO PLAY THE EQUALITYCARD.

WE ARE ALL TOGETHER,BEAUTIFUL COLORS IN A

RAINBOW, AS LONG AS YOUDON'T WAVE THAT RAINBOW AS A

FLAG.

THIS IS IT.

YOU WANT US TO GO ROCKY IVON YOUR ASS?

BECAUSE YEAH, OKAY, YOUMIGHT HAVE THE SUPERIOR

TRAINING, FACILITIES.

YOU MIGHT HAVE THE SUPERIORBODY TYPES BUT YOU PICKED A

FIGHT IN "THE NEW YORKTIMES" OP ED PAGE.

SO GUESS WHO YOU'RE STEPPINGIN THE RING WITH.

GET READY FOR THEEXPOUNDABLES, YEAH, THAT'S

RIGHT.

YOU MAY TAKE DOWN KRUGMANBUT DOWD WILL BE RIGHT

BEHIND HIM WITH A CUTTING ANDUNFAVORABLE COMPARISON WITH

YOU AN LET'S SAY McDREAMYFROM GRAY'S ANATOMY.

SHE GOES DOWN YOU STILL HAVETO CONTEND WITH KRISTOF,

FREIDMAN OR DOUTHAT,DOD-- BROOKS, BROOKS-- WE'LL

BE RIGHT BACK.
