Having caught up on the last week’s worth of news, this magpie is mostly just disappointed to learn that the Russian secret agents aren’t anything like Marvel’s Black Widow.
You needn’t be brilliant, multi-lingual, extensively trained in physical combat, various weapons, psychological manipulation, etc. No. To take down the US government, you just have to be young, attractive, and target an older Republican man.
The magpie is not surprised to learn this, just disappointed.
