“The funny part was he first said ‘oh BuzzFeed, you guys have had a rough time of late, huh’ and at first I was like ty for showing so much concern about the layoffs, my good sir.”
“Anyway there were literally dozens of people waiting and I shit you not he was about to Google the Mueller response to see if it was televised or at least grill me about it.”
“He did ask me repeatedly what if anything the Mueller inquiry has done and when i told him about the dozens of charges he said ‘but no collusion’ and I said that’s true but pointed out that like a dozen Russians had also been charged with meddling. he was nonplussed about that.”
“Anyway he was not a fan of Joy Behar, who somehow also came up.”
