Meanwhile, Donna's meeting with Konanov in what I think is the Mural Room, lecturing him about ulnar deviation and other RSIs. Konanov wonders what the hell she's talking about, when POTUS bursts in, saying, "Vasily? Vasily Konanov? Why, you're the last person I expected to be where they told me to go." He thanks Donna and the agents and dismisses them all. Um, you're going to ask your security guys to leave you alone with this drunk nut? Whatever. Vasily dismisses his attaché. Once they're alone, POTUS asks him what the hell he's doing. Konanov says that he wants to talk about commercial landing rights, the World Trade Organization, and nuclear compatibility. Jed says, "I'm not the Transportation Secretary. You will join the WTO when you reduce the 300\% tariff on American cars. And, with a nuclear weapon pointed at my head, I will not talk to you about nuclear compatibility." Jed adds that Konanov is a reformer, who will do good things in Eastern Europe, and he looks forward to the day Konanov is president (really?), but until then, his State Department deals with the government of the Ukraine. Jed shakes his hand and says, "Now you can go home and do what you wanted to do, which is say that you've met with the President of the United States." Konanov "the Barbarian" smiles. POTUS breezes out and as he strolls past Natasha, he says, "How you doin'?" Only he doesn't say it in that lewd, Joey Tribbiani way. That would have been funny, though.
