G7 leaders meeting in Germany on Sunday woke up to reports that Russian missiles had struck the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv:

And it in response, these same world leaders were captured on a hot mic mocking Vladimir Putin’s appearance and such. Have a watch:

Excerpts from Fox News:

“We have to show that we’re tougher than Putin,” Johnson quipped.

“We’re going to get the bare-chested horseback riding display,” Trudeau added.

Johnson ribbed, “We’ve got to show them our pecs,” while Von der Leyen interjected, “Horseback riding is the best.”

This is the shlub that was mocking Putin as he was killing Ukrainians:

And would it be too much to ask that the UK Prime Minister tuck his shirt in before the family photo?

As for Russia, President Biden announced in sanctions to prevent Russia from exporting gold:

Bloomberg calls the gold move “largely symbolic,” but it sure sounded good for the rube back home:

Ban on New Gold Imports From Russia Seen as ‘Largely Symbolic’

Well, if that works as well as whatever the hell it is Europe is doing with Russian gas, Putin will make a fortune off of it:

Good job, everyone:

They’re talking about escalating a war that will see Russians and Ukrainians die and they’re acting like frat bros who haven’t seen each other in years:
