Richard Grenell is our new spirit animal.
Itâ€™s sort of like how we enjoy watching Kayleigh McEnany destroy the press â€¦ they donâ€™t know how to deal with people in these positions who donâ€™t mind punching back. So of course, they call them trolls.
We call them badas*es.
Look at this exchange between Richard and Dr. Andreas Nick, Head of German Delegation to Parliamentary Assembly:
For a generation, each and every US Ambassador I got to know personally â€“ career dipomat or political appointee alike â€“ used to leave his post as a highly respected figure and trusted friend of Germany. Now someone leaves issuing threats as if he were representing a hostile power

Grumble grumble, we donâ€™t like dealing with people who call us on our BS. *shakes tiny fist at the sky*
Richard responded quite politely:
You always wanted me to stop asking you publicly to pay your NATO obligations and calling for an end to Nord Stream 2. But these are US policies. And I work for the American people. https://t.co/AK240eMM3H

He works for the American people.
What a novel idea.
And damn right, he does.
Another interaction we thought youâ€™d enjoy:

They just canâ€™t deal with him.
His response tells you WHY â€¦
You make a big mistake if you think the American pressure is off. You donâ€™t know Americans. https://t.co/QeplKk7lIt

Ok, this editor may have done a teensy little fist pump reading this tweet.
YOUâ€™RE NOT THE BOSS OF US.
