The hilarious thing is, the giant table only has the effect of making lil' Vlad look even tinier than he usually is!

he is just seeing if someone has enough balls to get up and come sit down in the chair right next to him.

Macron is just sitting there all uncomfortable and confused.

boss move.

Putin really gives conservatives a wide-on doesn't he ?

Yeah. They love authoritarian bigots.

Maybe its President Putin dry sense of humor.

Next President Putin will provide a telephone and binoculars.

Maybe morse code. Or semaphore with poles?

Hoist those flags.

They need to install a microphone on both ends, to make sure the other one heard what the leader said clearly.

The 69-year-old Russian leader, famously cautious about coronavirus, has also been pictured sitting at a long rectangular one for meetings with his advisers.

putin is responsible for a majority of the disinformation spread and yet he is so scared he doesn't want to sit close to anyone.

Typical hypocrisy of the so called 'tough' leaders, they are just scared little kittens!!!

ROFL, how easy it is to fool the idiot right wing.

A scared putin looks like a tough guy to them, says more about their courage I guess!!!

It never occurred to any, our so called leader to pick up the chair and move closer?

Insist, I didn't want to be rude but I can't see you,

"It is obvious that he is more and more alone," independent political analyst Konstantin Kalachev told AFP.

It's obvious only to this Kalachev guy

Notice how the speculation about how deranged the leaders who refuse to let Russian doctors administer a standard PCR test must be isn't considered worth mentioning.

Maybe because such speculation might start too many people looking for the evidence their claims are based on, and realize it's as 'solid' as the evidence Trump's claims to have won reelection are based on.

Because that's a slippery slope to where the comedians and influencers ridicule those claims to often to be ignored, and the whole house of cards crashes down.

exaggerating the table's largesse.

So the table dispenses money or gifts? Convenient!

Anyway, we can see why peace talks take such a long time.

Leave Putin's gian table alone. The man tested positive for COVID-19 but he can't isolate himself due to Western pressure, so he it least keeps some distance to harm people being with him. Others can laugh till their blood vessels burst.

Most important is that here's February 16. There's no invasion & there never was one except it be in the heads of sick Western politicians. Shame on them & on their lying propaganda machines.

I have a table almost that size in my living room. Unfortunately it is covered in bags, old newspapers, books etc. my partner and I usually communicate on the couch.

I do think it is sensible for world leaders, as many have contacted the virus and don’t have to quarantine

Konstantin Kalachev? Who is Konstantin Kalachev?

I never heard of this so called independent political analyst. Looks like Media cannot find anybody worthy of a quote against Putin, so they find a by passer, who for some reward would say what they like to hear then the even give the the title of "independent political analyst"!

I need that table when my mother in law visits!

A little man with a massively long table. . . Hmm, I wonder what that might mean.

I saw the same table at the St. Petersburg Ikea last week.

You must be a good man. When mine visits I put all my furniture & appliances in a warehouse.

Nice try, MSM! Anything goes to deflect attention from just another failed prediction of "Invasion of Ukraine"? Let's discuss the table, let's talk another nonsense, let's talk anything to let people forget another lie about "the imminent invasion" that was never going to happen.

Please provide some links to non "MSM" so we can read a source not full of "lies" and "nonsense" about Russia.

Can you?

@Fighto!

You can do it yourself, read or watch any source that directly cite Putin or foreign minister Lavrov. From the very beginning they clearly say Russia have no intentions to invade Ukraine. And after that, for comparison, read or watch all the nonsense Western leaders and media produce. I lost the count of days of invasions they promised from the last November.

Can you count?

So I offered you a chance to provide an unbiased source without the "lies and nonsense" you talk of - and you tell us to listen directly to Putin and Lavrov.

I'll just leave it right there.

You know, if someone who talks about fearing having his DNA stolen via a standard PCR test (but has no difficulty leaving their DNA all over a chair they've provided for just him to occupy) were spouting things that he says you have to trust him on, because you're not allowed to see the evidence, I'd be VERY hesitant.

But hey, that's me. If it's not you, just send your name to MyPillow, their president will contact you to enlighten you to all sorts of things, and probably throw in a discount on the merchandise too.

Oh you can be sure that they did, in Russia there are microphones everywhere, always have been.

Truth hurts, heh? What's your idea who to listen to, Biden or Johnson? I'll just leave it right there.

@Bob Fosse

Who’s the one who lost count?

Anyone in his right mind who try to count the number of times when White House talking heads or newspapers announced "Putin's invasion is imminent".

Uh, uh, can I get a Big Vlad, some Vlad-fries ... er ... hold the catsup on the burger, please, da?

And, and, a Cherry coke, please.
