Watch The Russians Laugh At Us In This Video Clip

The Russian government has posted an embarrassing video clip showing Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and a European official chortling about President Donald Trump “passing secrets” to Russians.

The clip shows Lavrov and aides sitting down at a table for a meeting with Thorbjorn Jagland, secretary general of the Council of Europe. As a photographer snaps photos at the start of their talk on Thursday, Jagland jokes: “These pictures won’t cause any problems for you?” 

Lavrov answers: “Depends on what kind of secrets you pass on to me” — and the men erupt in laughter.

The exchange mocked Trump’s Oval Office meeting last week with Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, during which Trump revealed sensitive classified information on ISIS that reportedly had been secretly provided to the U.S. by Israel.

The photo jab referred to the fact that the only photographer allowed in the meeting was one from the Russian government-run Tass news agency; no American journalists were allowed to attend. The Russians later posted photos of a beaming Trump shaking hands with Lavrov and Kislyak, which the White House had reportedly been assured would not be done.

The controversial meeting was the day after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey over the “Russian thing with Trump and Russia,” the president later told NBC News.

The New York Times reported Friday that Trump called Comey a “nut job” in his meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off,” the Times quoted Trump as saying.

The mortifying video clip of Lavrov joking about the president is another example that America isn’t so much becoming “great again,” but an international laughingstock, several publications pointed out. Trump departed Friday on his first international trip amid a flurry of leaks about his shocking behavior in the White House. 

“The dominant reaction to Trump right now is mockery,” Jacob Heilbrunn, editor of the conservative National Interest, told a recent meeting at the German Foreign Office, Politico reported.

Politico, citing an unnamed source, said NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a former official after meeting with Trump in April, “The president of the United States has a 12-second attention span.” Trump also tried to get NATO officials to discuss North Korea, which is not part of NATO.

But it’s the Russians who are laughing the loudest, notes Bloomberg. Russian President Vladimir Putin mocked Trump this week, offering to send a record of Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak, should Congress need an account for an investigation.

LeBron James responded to MVP snub with one of the greatest first halves ever

James powered a Cavaliers team that built a 41-point first-half lead over the Celtics in Game 2.

Just an hour after LeBron James was left out of the top 3 in NBA MVP voting, and only moments after rookie Jaylen Brown said he had no fear whatsoever of the unofficial greatest living basketball player, the All-Star forward uncorked one of the most dominant first halves of basketball we’ve seen this season.

Just two quarters into the second game of the Eastern Conference Finals, James has left his mark, pummeling the Celtics into an oblivion to give the Cavaliers a commanding 72-31 lead at the half. He was the driving force behind what’s become the largest postseason halftime lead in NBA history.

The King himself scored 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting, dominating Boston as the Cavaliers employed their own death lineup. Cleveland surrounded James with four shooters much of the first half, and the team responded by outscoring Boston 18-4 in the opening 5:30 of the second quarter.

James finished the first half with six assists, finding shooters like Kevin Love, Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith early and often. And when he wasn’t looking to pass, he used his sheer size, speed and strength to bully whichever defender stood between he and the rim.

This is why LeBron is the best in the world.

Forget MVP voting. That’s a regular season award, and the three guys that beat James — Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard — aren’t competing at the same level the Cavaliers are.

James has proven time and time again he’s the best player in the world. Now, he’s on pace to make his seventh consecutive NBA Finals appearance, this time beating down a Boston team that finished with the East’s No. 1 seed.

Now, with this public embarrassment of a tired Celtics team, it seems James is on his way to challenging for that coveted championship ring. And trailing 41 points at the half, it doesn’t seem Boston’s going to stop them from doing it.

Here are a bunch of sad Celtics fans for their enemies to enjoy

A 41-point halftime deficit will do this to you.

Celtics fans are among the most passionate in all of sports. They support their team, and their team has overachieved to get to the Eastern Conference Finals. They have so much to be proud about.

But all of that is forgotten when their team is getting beat by 40 in the first half on their home floor to the Cavaliers. Even Celtics fans have lost patience.

They’ve also resorted to praying.

Staring straight ahead.

Chewing their shirt.

Or even yawning.

But there’s at least one silver lining.
