While President Donald Trump has been taking incoming on all fronts, Vlad Putin took some vacation days in Siberia to give his tiger, Scaramucci, a work out and to get another manly, bare chested photo.
During the bare chested photo-shoot, Vlad shared some anecdotes with reporters about how he decided to change his tiger’s name from plain vanilla Boris to Scaramucci. He said that after the FSB delivered him the transcript and audio from Anthony Scaramucci’s infamous rant, he knew that the guy was a ‘real’ tiger. So he changed Boris’ name immediately. After all, as President of Russia, he can pretty much do whatever he wants.
“Besides,” he added, “I’m sure that with a little more work I can train Scaramucci to do the Fandango. And wait until I bring that show to the next G-20 Summit.”
Asserting himself abroad with his customary disruptive panache, President Vladimir V. Putin on Wednesday jumped into the furor over President Trump’s disclosure of classified information to Russian diplomats, declaring that nothing secret had been revealed and that he could prove it.
Mr. Putin, who has a long record of seizing on foreign crises to make Russia’s voice heard, announced during a news conference in Sochi, Russia …. that he has a “record” of the American president’s meeting at the White House with two senior Russian officials and was ready to give it to Congress — so long as Mr. Trump does not object.
