Satire news from New Yorker. ST. PETERSBURG (The Borowitz Report)Hopes for a positive G20 summit crumbled today as President Obama blurted to Russias Vladimir Putin at a joint press appearance, Everyone here thinks youre a jackass.
The press corps appeared stunned by the uncharacteristic outburst from Mr. Obama, who then unleashed a ten-minute tirade at the stone-faced Russian President.
Look, Im not just talking about Snowden and Syria, Mr. Obama said. What about Pussy Riot? What about your anti-gay laws? Total jackass moves, my friend.
If you think Im the only one who feels this way, youre kidding yourself, Mr. Obama said, jabbing his finger in the direction of the Russian Presidents face. Ask Angela Merkel. Ask David Cameron. Ask the Turkish guy. Every last one of them thinks youre a d**k.
Shortly after Mr. Obamas volcanic performance, Mr. Putin released a terse official statement, reading, I should be afraid of this skinny man? I wrestle bears.
After one day of meetings, the G20 nations voted unanimously on a resolution that said maybe everyone should just go home.
