Russia’s Foreign Minister points out the obvious. Again.
It’s not even up for debate — Sergei Lavrov is in a league of his own. Russia’s Foreign Minister mutilates Washington soundbites in his sleep and eats NATO press releases for breakfast — no salt.
As you are well aware, Sergei dropped a payload of painful truth on Mike Pence’s smug, smarmy face during the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. But that was just a warm-up. Pence is a small fish in a big ocean of idiots.
On the sidelines of the Munich conference, Lavrov participating in a meeting with top diplomats from the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine).
Angela Merkel used this opportunity to lecture Lavrov and the rest of the audience about the dangers of Russian hacking.
You think Lavrov just sat there and took it on the chin? No. When it was his turn to speak, he reminded the entire world that Angela Merkel’s phones were tapped by her “ally”, and that this is a confirmed fact, and that Angela Merkel is a sad puppet:
The German story was shown to be a fact. You know when it happened, several years ago. It was confirmed that top officials had had their phones tapped. And the other day there was a leak showing that the 2012 presidential election campaign in France coincided with cyber-espianage on the part of the CIA. And talking to a journalist today, a CIA representative said that he had no comments to offer. So I repeat: show us the facts.
So basically Lavrov can check “told Merkel to her face that she’s a miserable witch” off his bucket list.
A true hero. Watch (starts around 6:40):
