Russian Chef Expelled From SF Consulate

Four Russian Consulate employees in San Francisco — including a chef accused of being a spy — are among the 35 Russian diplomats ordered to leave the United States within 72 hours by President Barack Obama, the Russian Consul General to San Francisco has announced.

"One of the employees who will be leaving is the chef, who was characterized by the outgoing U.S. Administration as an intelligence operative,” Petrov said. He added somberly: “On New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, we will have to cook ourselves … We will not be able to treat our guests to authentic Russian food, his hors d'oeuvres.”

Petrov would not name the chef, nor would the State Department. NBC News said the names of the diplomats are not being released, because they don't want Russia to do the same for American operatives. In their Facebook post, the Consul General called Obama's accusations against their staff "bizarre and ridiculous."

  1. Kind of reminds you of when obama closed the war monuments down during the govt shutdown. The man is petty.

  2. "Petty" defined.
    Let's hope we can survive the next 3 weeks.
