Russian A: You want to invite the "penthouse" down to play?

Russian B: Nyet, he always asks for credit and then disappears when he loses!

Russian A: If we could just find some way for him to settle his debts...

4. Y'know, they really should be spying on Trump

If there's anyone in the world who is totally up to their
eyeballs in nefarious no-good, its the fucking Donald.
I wish they had friggin' wiretaps and eavesdropping
satellites pointed at the guy 24/7.
