This is funny. CBS reporter Elizabeth Palmer catches Vladimir Putin going onto the ice for a game of hockey. Trying to create some juicy fake news, she asks Putin what the effect of President firing James Comey will have on US/Russian relations in an apparent attempt to get Putin to say anything negative about President Trump.
Instead, Putin told her what a stupid question that was and that she should go out onto the ice with him, which would surely give her something to report about from her hospital bed.
Elizabeth Palmer: “How will the firing of James Comey effect US/Russian relations?”
Vladimir Putin, via translator: “There will be no effect. Your question looks very funny for me. Don’t be angry with me.
We have nothing to do with that. President Trump is acting in accordance with his competence, and in accordance with his law and Constitution.
And what about us? Why we?”
You see, I am going to play hockey…. and I invite you to do the same.”

Translation: “You are a moron trying to generate fake news. The effect of this on Russia will be ZERO. What a stupid question!
President Trump acted in accordance with his position and well within US law. How could there be any effect on Russia. If I fired my head of KGB, would you go running to Trump to ask what the effect would be on him. Never mind, silly question. Of course you would!
Now, why don’t you come out onto the ice with me and I will body check your miserable fake news ass into next week.”
