President Donald Trump left many people confused on Friday after he suggested that he saw Russian President Vladimir Putin smile during a phone call.
Speaking in the White House, Trump said Putin “sort of smiled when he said something to the effect that [Mueller’s investigation] started off as a mountain and it ended up being a mouse. But he knew that because he knew there was no collusion whatsoever.”
Many people on Twitter were baffled that Trump indicated that he could hear Putin smile over the phone.
Bush could see Putin's soul. Trump can hear his smile. https://t.co/rSj62M8m6J

Are smiled audible now?
What kinda tech the white house is using to know someone smile on the phone?
was it FaceTime?
Or did trump let the secret out that America have spy camera in the Kremlin?

Other people wondered if the call was actually a video conference.
Oh my…they face timed! How else could @realDonaldTrump see that cute smile of Putin's. Those that believe this bulls*t are as UnAmerican as Trump. This literally makes me sick. Trump should be locked up!

So I guess Trump was Skyping with Putin so that he was able to see him smile. https://t.co/RCZQ5oTsu0
