Russia's laughing at the United States, not President Donald Trump

Russia's laughing at the United States, not President Donald Trump

- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov's trolling of US FBI director James Comey's firing was relatively benign; ostensibly, Lavrov's mock surprise at being told of the firing could be taken for a diplomat's polite refusal to discuss the host country's domestic politics. This week, however, the Russian jokes at the expense of the United States got positively unpleasant. First, President Vladimir Putin "offered" to provide the US Congress with a recording of Lavrov's conversation with Trump, in which the US president allegedly revealed highly classified information (the word Putin used, "zapis", cannot really be translated as "transcript", as the Kremlin later claimed)
