Russian foreign minister jokes about Comey: ‘Was he fired? You’re kidding’

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov sarcastically acted surprised Wednesday when asked a question about the firing of FBI Director James Comey during a visit to Washington.

“Was he fired? You’re kidding, you’re kidding,” he said during a brief press conference at the State Department before making a face, shaking his head and leaving the room.

Lavrov was briefly addressing the media with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. The Russian diplomat is scheduled to meet with President Donald Trump Wednesday as well.

Comey, who was investigation the ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, was dramatically fired by Trump Tuesday night.
