We’re not sure where Josh Earnest has been spending his time, but it sure as hell hasn’t been in the real world:

More from The Hill:

 Press secretary Josh Earnest claimed Putin’s repeated requests for a meeting with Obama are a sign he is hungry to use it as a way to enhance his stature on the world stage.
“I think some might conclude that that means the Russians are … more desperate,” Earnest told reporters.
“They are quite interested in having a conversation with President Obama,” he added. “After some careful consideration on our end, the president did make a decision that it was worth it at this point to engage with President Putin in a face-to-face-meeting to see if the United States’ interests could be advanced.”

Yeah, so do we.

Nah. No comment. Just fits of laughter.
