Well, if you needed another slap in the face on Wednesday morning from the Trump/Kremlin cabal, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is happy to serve one up.
Lavrov — who is in DC to meet with Secretary of State, and Russian “order of friendship” recipient Rex Tillerson — was attending a press conference early Wednesday when a reporter shouted the following question:
Does the Comey firing cast a shadow over your talks?
The answer, of course, is “yes.”
But that wasn’t the answer we got.
Instead, the notoriously sarcastic Lavrov, who a former official from George W. Bush’s administration once described as “a complete asshole,” responded as follows:
Reporter: Does the Comey firing cast a shadow over your talks?
Lavrov: "Was he fired? You're kidding." https://t.co/EA1e2llZNx

There you go America.
They’re laughing at you.
And right to your face. In Washington D.C.
