Russia calls Trump its ‘agent’ on state TV

Well, this is rather bold, isn't it.

Today, as Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was returning to Moscow from last week's visit with Donald Trump in the White House, Russian state media aired a segment with this title: “Puppet Master and ‘Agent’—- How to Understand Lavrov’s Meeting With Trump.”

Julia Davis at The Daily Beast reports on this rather blunt segment aired today on Russian TV channel Rossiya 1:

Vesti Nedeli, a Sunday news show on the same network, pointed out that it was Trump, personally, who asked Lavrov to pose standing near as Trump sat at his desk. It’s almost the literal image of a power behind the throne.
