Member of Pussy Riot poisoned in Russia; gee, that's not suspicious at all

Looks like Donald Trump’s bestest friend in the wide world may be at it again.

From The LA Times:

Russian news reports say that a member of Russian punk protest group Pussy Riot has been hospitalized in grave condition for what could be a possible poisoning.

Ekho Moskvy radio and online news portal Meduza reported Wednesday that Pyotr Verzilov has been in emergency care since late Tuesday. They quoted a fellow Pussy Riot member, Veronika Nikulshina, as saying Verzilov's symptoms included losing his eyesight and ability to speak.

Nikulshina said Verzilov was being treated in the toxicology unit of a Moscow hospital, indicating a suspected poisoning.

Pussy Riot, of course, is a well-known Vladimir Putin bête noire. And Putin is a notorious, well, poisoner. That’s a Highlights for Children-level connect-the-dots game, which is why Trump almost certainly won’t make the connection.

But seriously, Vlad, try to find a new M.O. The Russian version of Clue must be really fucking boring. It’s always Vladimir Putin, with the poison, in the hotel room.

Ugh.
