Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavroc burned NBC’s Andrea Mitchell beautifully.
It all stated when Rex Tillerson and Sergei Lavrov were having a meeting. When Mitchell started to scream questions at Tillerson, Lavrov didn’t miss a beat saying: “who was bringing you up? Who has given you your manners?”
From Western Journalism:
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell received a public rebuke from Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday as she learned her style of shouting questions was not well received in the Kremlin.
Mitchell was among the many reporters at a public portion of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to Moscow. As Tillerson and Lavrov entered, she called out her question regardless of the fact Lavrov was talking.
“Mr. Secretary, the Russians don’t believe the intelligence. How confident are you, Mr. Secretary …” Mitchell began to ask.
Lavrov cut her off short.
“Who was bringing you up? Who was giving you your manners?” Lavrov asked.

News accounts said that after chastising Mitchell, Lavrov gave a slight grin.
Many on Twitter felt the rebuke was justified.
