Tillerson smiles as Russian Foreign Minister drops a ‘tactical nuke’ on NBC’s rude Andrea Mitchell

Say what you want about Russian Foreign Minster Sergey Lavrov, but the man knows how to deal with the media.

During Lavrov’s Wednesday meeting with U.S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the American delegation, NBC News reporter Andrea Mitchell can be heard on video shouting a question at the Russian foreign minister’s back.

When she didn’t receive the answer she was looking for, Mitchell tried again.

“Mr. Lavrov,” Mitchell said loudly, “The Russians don’t believe the [U.S.] intelligence [about Syria].”

Without even bothering to turn around, Lavrov publicly chided the NBC reporter for her poor manners.

“Who was bringing you up [as a child]?” Lavrov asked, sounding annoyed. “Who was giving you your manners, you know?”

After the public scolding, Lavrov got down to business with the delegation, refusing to answer Mitchell’s question.

Watch the video below:

And the best part, Rex Tillerson can be seen from another angle smiling during the rebuke, according to Fox News.
