Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov mocked MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell for asking about FBI Director James Comey’s firing at a meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday morning.

After Tillerson thanked Lavrov for journeying to Washington, Mitchell shouted a question asking if Comey’s firing “cast a shadow over talks” between the two countries.

“Was he fired?” Lavrov asked.

“You are kidding! You are kidding!” Lavrov said. A grin crept across his face as he turned away.

As Tillerson and Lavrov exited the room, Tillerson raised his arms slightly in a gesture that may have expressed exasperation, as he turned and said something to Lavrov.
