Imagine if Putin bought a Hunter B painting

Republicans slam Biden’s ‘total surrender’ to Russia by dropping opposition to Nord Stream 2 pipeline: Ted Cruz says Putin should ‘thank’ Joe by ‘asking oligarch to buy a $500K Hunter painting.’ Imagine if Putin were to buy a painting, and just have it hanging behind him, in his office, in an interview with some global news outlet, and not say anything about it. He could always argue it was out of respect for Biden he bought it, and it had nothing to do with anything else, but how it would troll everyone. Especially if the painting bid up for some ridiculous amount.
