On his official visit to Washington, DC, Obama shows Putin around the White House. Putin is very impressed by the grandiose building. He can't stop staring at the decorated ceiling and the meticulously carved walls.
He asks Obama "Tell me Mr. President, how do you have such a huge house, isn't the economy in depression?"
Obama takes Putin to a massive glass window, points at something and asks him "It's very simple Mr. President, do you see that bridge over there?"
"Well, half of the money used to build that bridge went in my pockets" Obama smirks, rubbing his fingers greedily.
Having learned something, Putin goes back and invites Obama a year later to his newly built palace.
Obama is shocked when he sees that Putin's palace is thrice the size of the White House and has even more expensive decoration. The art is original Van Gogh and Picasso and the walls have embedded jewels in them.
Astounded, he asks Putin about it. Putin takes Obama to a wide glass window and points at something and asks him "Mr. President, do you see that bridge over there?"
Obama answers "no"
Putin gives off a wide smirk.
