MSNBC host Rachel Maddow scored a major interview with former FBI Director James Comey Thursday and decided to use the opportunity to discuss the beauty of Russian hookers.
“The president said the hookers thing is nonsense but that Putin had told him we have some of the most beautiful hookers in the world,” Maddow said, reading from the Comey memos.
“The president was conveying this to you at the White House?” she asked.
“In the Oval Office,” Comey replied. Maddow asked if Trump was speaking in hyperbole, but Comey said Trump was speaking literally.
“I think there was public reporting he had spoken to Vladimir Putin as a congratulations on taking office at that point,” Comey concluded. “I’m not suggesting they talked about how beautiful the hookers were in Russia but I do know there was at least one publicly reported conversation.”
“That would be an unusual first call between new heads of state, a congratulatory phone call to be bragging about the relative value of each country’s hookers,” Maddow added.
