CNN's Christiane Amanpour asked Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in an interview to comment on the state of the U.S. presidential election. She ended up getting a bit more than she bargained for when she prefaced the question with a reference to the Russian punk band 'Pussy Riot.'
Short transcript of the exchange:
- Hillary’s war: Can a no-fly zone over Syria work?
- I hadn't been called a kike since fourth grade. Donald Trump changed all that
- Vote Trump or face nuclear war with Russia, insists Putin confidant
AMANPOUR: Can I just try one last question? One last question. A bit cheeky but I'm going to ask you. Russia had its own Pussy Riot moment. What do you think of Donald Trump’s pussy riot moment?
LAVROV: Well, I don't know what this would English is not my mother tongue, I don't know if I would sound decent. There are so many pussies around the presidential campaign on both sides that I prefer not to comment on this.
