Putin sitting oddly

Memes of this type play on an image of Russian President Vladimir Putin sitting strangely in a chair during a meeting. In the original photo, Putin is sitting unnaturally, with his back completely straight and pressed against the chair, in a pose evocative of discomfort. This photo has led to speculation about Putin’s health, and the jokes in this meme are often scatologically inclined. These memes are used to imply Putin’s physical incompetence.
