Russian president Vladimir Putin traveled recently to Rome in search of a potential ally in Pope Francis, super important considering that tensions in the West and Russia are at the highest they've been since the Cold War.

When asked by Italy’s Courier Della Sera if he’s had any regrets about the decisions he’s made during his tenure, Putin told the Italian reporter:

I can't remember anything at this moment. Clearly God has built my life in a way that I won't have anything to regret.

So there you have it. Putin has been blessed with perfect judgement, bravado, and no regrets. Might we suggest a career in rap, if politics doesn’t work out?
