Today, a very serious meeting occurred between very serious people, namely U.S. President Barack Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and U.S. National Security Advisor Susan Rice:
It just so happens that something hilarious also happened when this aide—who looks and acts so much like Veep's nervous presidential bagman Gary Walsh that it could be a viral marketing campaign—tried valiantly and idiotically to prevent cameras from witnessing this sidelines meeting at the G20 conference happening now in Turkey. The video should be queued up, but the awkwardness starts at 56 seconds in.
Here's a gfycat version, in case you have trouble with video:
Back in the real world, it's fair to say that this meeting is a welcome sign of increased communication between the two great powers in the wake of the Paris attacks. Both Russia and America have been engaged in action against ISIS, but with largely separate agendas. So far, Russia has backed Syria's strongman president Bashar Al-Assad, while the US has supported non-ISIS rebels. Some sources, such as ABC News, are claiming this meeting comes amidst a decline in Russian support for Assad, which would be good news for US-Russian cooperation.
