Vladimir Putin to Larry King: Why Are You Leaving?

Russian Prime Minister Vladimiar Putin appeared on CNN’s “Larry King Live” last night to talk about the wikileaks cable fiasco and Russia-U.S. relations.

At the end of the interview, however, Putin had a question for host Larry King: Why are you leaving?

From the official transcript:

Putin: Can I ask you one question?

King: Sure

Putin: I don’t know why, but the king leaves the scene at the US stage

King: I sometimes don’t know why myself

Putin: At the U.S. stage, in the U.S. mass media there are many talented and interesting people, but still there is just one king there. I don’t ask why he is leaving, but still what do you think? When shall we have a right to cry out, “long live the king”? When will there be another man who is as popular in the whole world as you happen to be?

King: Thank you, thank you, I have no answer. Vladimir Putin, prime minister of Russia.
