He then rolled his eyes as U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson escorted him from the room.

Prior to the brittle exchange, Lavrov and Tillerson had entered the room to shake hands in a brief photo-op. “I want to welcome Foreign Minister Lavrov to the State Department and express my appreciation for making the trip to Washington so that we can continue our dialogue and our exchange Continue reading "Russian Foreign Minister On James Comey: ‘Was He Fired?

The filmmaker took a moment on Wednesday’s “Late Night” with Seth Meyers to implore the president-elect to “pay attention,” citing reports that Trump has attended only three of the daily security briefings that he has been offered since he won the election.
Moore referenced the infamous Aug. 6, 2001, briefing titled “Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the United States” that President George W. Bush received while on vacation at his ranch in Texas.
While Moore described Bush at that time as “not engaged,” he said that Trump brings disengagement to another level.
