There’s meme magic, and there’s there’s Vladimir Putin just reading your website and taking your advice.
It’s up to you to decide which happened here.
On May 10th, following Trump’s meeting with Lavrov, I wrote this:
Today, four days later, on May 14th, this happened.
Czech President Milos Zeman refused the services of an interpreter for his meeting with President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, opting instead, to fire off one-liners and in Russian, on the sidelines of a key international conference in Beijing.
“You are smoker just like me, Minister Lavrov – but your President forbids it,” 72-year-old Zeman, known for his bon viveur lifestyle, told the Russian Foreign Minister as he shook his hand during Sunday’s photo op at the “One Belt, One Road” forum in the Chinese capital.
“I don’t recommend it!” Putin replied.
“It’s the Duma that forbids it,” retorted Lavrov, with all three politicians appearing to enjoy a genuine laugh.
So you be the judge.
Is it meme magic?
Or simply Putin reading the site and taking my VERY EXCELLENT advice?
For me, it’s cool either way.
I’m just thankful I’m able to change the course of history by writing a blog.
