You’re going to want to see THIS! Talk about showing NBC reporter, Andrea Mitchell the door! The Russian Foreign Minister not only showed Ms. Mitchell the door, but schooled her all the way back to Kindergarten.
On Wednesday in Moscow, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, when out of the blue, NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell shouts out a question, while the Moscow Foreign Minister was speaking.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was affronted Wednesday when NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell called out a question while he was speaking in Moscow, asking who taught her “manners.”
ABC News Moscow correspondent Patrick Reevell tweeted out video of the exchange, which occurred when Lavrov and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson entered the room for a photo-op, the Washington Examiner reported.
Mitchell, who focuses on foreign affairs in her reporting, tried to address Tillerson, presumably about the recent Syrian chemical attack.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
On Wednesday, NBC reporter Andrea Mitchell finally got what was coming to her and had her manners and her upbringing openly questioned by a very surprising source: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
As the Washington Free Beacon reported, Mitchell said,
“Mr. Secretary, the Russians don’t believe the intelligence (regarding Syria’s recent chemical attack on its own people). How confident are you, Mr. Secretary …”
It was not the time or place for her to be asking questions, and her behavior clearly represents why so many people question her journalistic integrity.
According to the Washington Examiner, ABC News Moscow correspondent Patrick Reevall then tweeted video footage of the exchange, which clearly showed Mitchell having her “credentials” handed to her.
“Who was bringing you up?” Lavrov said, before following with this epic slam: “Who has given you your manners?”
Of course, this is not the first time Mitchell has received attention for her insufferable antics. Last month she was pretty much forced out of another Tillerson meeting.
Talk about rudeness! Does Ms. Mitchell really not hear those around her responding?…Thank you! Thank you!…..Can Andrea NOT take a hint?! More than one person thanked her for her time and HINTED for her to leave, before she HAD to be escorted out of the room. Talk about NOT getting the hint!
Of course, this IS Andrea Mitchell and let’s face it, she’s still grieving over the fact that Hillary didn’t get elected president. Need I say more?
Andrea Mitchell has been in television for awhile now and should know better. She’s been a journalist, anchor, reporter and commentator for NBC news in Washington, DC. She’s been with NBC for almost 40 years. That should tell you something right there.
Mitchell is a News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and anchors the Andrea Mitchell Reports which airs from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. EST weekdays on MSNBC. She’s also often been on ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews and ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’.
Funny thing, in 2005, Mitchell published a book entitled ‘Talking Back… to Presidents, Dictators’, well, it looks like she took the title of her book seriously! Now it’s obvious that it’s not just President Trump and his staff that you have insulted, but a Russian Foreign Minister who knew exactly how to put you back in your place.
Andrea, I think it’s time for you to go enjoy greener pastures.
