I imagine this in Kremlin this evening, Putin hangs up call with Trump, starts a conference call with all his deputies, “Guys, Guys, you won’t believe it, President Trump just called me...yeah, Sergey, that’s right, he called me, and he said the Russia investigation was a hoax!”

#KremlinConferenceCall - Putin to team “Sergey (Lavrov), I know, you’re right, you’re right, after he dumped on the CIA in front of me at Helsinki, I thought this is it, doesn’t get any better, but then Trump calls today, and now who’s the man, who’s the man...”

#KremlinConferenceCall - a pause & Putin, “yeah, he made some hollow threat about Venezuela, but come on, we know the deal, Crimea- U.S. did nothing, hacking 2016, U.S. did nothing, Syria, U.S. did nothing. We saw Bolton’s face after Erdogan told Trump withdraw, Pompeo on Iran”

#KremlinConferenceCall Putin,”sure, took a couple years, but we’re there baby. I know we want sanctions relief, but we’ll get there. And what did I tell Oleg (Deripaska). Rusal got that aluminum plant in Kentucky & how are his kids doing?” 

#KremlinConferenceCall “I knew Vladislov (Surkov) did some magic in Ukraine, but then he & Vyach (Volodin) & Alexi (Gromov) were all social media yayaya & lets hire the caterer (Prigozhin), I was like give these guys a million a month to shut up.”
