Lavrov, the One to Watch

Lots of Trump news last week.

Robert’s favorite line last week came from the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov.

When meeting with Trump last week, in the same meeting during which Trump called James Comey a “nut job,” Lavrov demonstrated some wit.

From the NYT article:

“Behind closed doors, according to the document read by the official, Mr. Trump said that news stories about possible Russian collusion were fake, a comment he has repeatedly made in public. He told the Russians that his poll numbers remained strong and that Americans wanted the government to have a healthy relationship with Russia.

At one point, Mr. Trump jokingly asked whether there were reporters in the room.

“No,” Mr. Lavrov said. “No fake media.”

The Russians are in the drivers seat here. They answer to nobody and are having fun watching the US meltdown.
