Pay No Attention to That Man Behind the Curtain

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who met with Trump earlier today, said the idea of Russia meddling in US elections is “absurd” and “fake information.”

“How is that possible, for a great power?” he said, calling it “humiliating” for the US to believe this.

He added that this topic was not discussed today in his meeting with Trump, nor were sanctions.

Vladimir Putin Haz a Sad

Image

From New York Magazine:

Some Republican lawmakers have objected to President Donald Trump’s defense of Russian president Vladimir Putin by claiming the U.S. also “has got a lot of killers” in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. But GOP leaders weren’t the only ones miffed by the exchange.

“We consider such words from the Fox TV company to be unacceptable and insulting,” a Kremlin spokesman told reporters in response to the Fox News host, who said “Putin’s a killer” in response to Trump’s statement that he wanted closer relations with Russia and to work with Putin on defeating ISIS. O’Reilly was referring to allegations that the Russian leader has directed hits on journalists and political opponents.

The Kremlin added that, “Honestly speaking, we would prefer to get an apology from such a respected TV company.”

The Trump-Putin Bromance Continues

I love this. John Kasich has launched a “Trump-Putin 2016” website.

The website, Trump-Putin2016.com, is a reference to Trump and Putin heaping praise on one another this week.

“By signing up you are waiving all constitutional rights, civil liberties, notion of privacy and subjecting yourself to a steady stream of hugely outrageous comments,” a disclaimer on the website reads.

This comes at an opportune time for me since I’m attempting to learn the Cyrillic alphabet for a new Russian language course on Duolingo.

Спасибо, Kasich! (Thank you, Kasich!)
