My first response when I saw this exchange between Katie Couric and Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, was a chilling shiver up my spine.
Zakharova stopped by Yahoo News to talk with Couric about President Trump, U.S. airstrikes in Syria, and fake news.
BUT - Couric turned to the horrific reports of gay men being detained and tortured in Chechnya, and things went south very quickly.
Zakharova was not of a mind to discuss and shut Couric down, explaining there was an "investigation."
Dodge, dodge, dodge...
