This is just something I saw once, they didn't get into it at all, but less than two months ago Samantha Bee interviewed Masha and she questioned whether Putin is literate when Bee said her staff is trying to verify if Trump can actually read. Obviously I don't speak Russian, but I don't think Putin's literacy can be questioned, so I can't take Masha seriously unless I get some more details about her opinion.

She doesn't think Putin can't read but she has no respect for his intellect.

LOL! I think that was mostly Samantha Bee trying to make things entertaining for the general public. Masha has a few talks on youtube and most only have a thousand or so hits whereas an entertainer/comic can change that.

Anyway, speaking of the devil, Masha was on Samanthe Bee this weem.

As far as Putin reading, Trump's literacy has been called into question too as has Obama citizenship. I think it goes with the the terrority especially when you are responsible for war.

So a Russian journalist is black-listed by the Kremlin and has to flee her and you don't want to hear from her because she appeared on a comedy show?

Anyway this is the direction she is going in now.

Interesting perspective from Bill Maher who like Samantha Bee is a comic so the video isn't for all.
