Expo Grounds, Asmara — The President of the State of Eritrea, His Excellency President Isaias Afwerki, called the President of the Russian Federation, His Excellency President Vladmir Putin  to congratulate him, and his country on the successful election of Mr. Donald Trump.

Speaking from the former nightclub-turned-presidential-mancave , Shamrock Club, where President Isaias was nursing a Blue Label bottle of whiskey after a long-day at the Adi Halo Dam while watching the results of the elections, President Isaias told Putin that his administration had always known he could pull it and has commended him on a job well-done.

A perplexed Putin, however, repeatedly told the clearly-drunk Eritrean president that he must have called the wrong number and Russia had nothing to do with Trump’s election in the United States, before, according to a local prostitute who often services the President’s carnal desires, hanging up on him.

AwazeTribune has attempted to retrieve the transcript of the call, but it has already been classified by a special decree of the National Security Agency of Eritrea.

AT has reached to Mr. Yemane Gebremeskel, Eritrea’s Minister of Information and Permanent Ambassador to Twitter for a comment. According to him, the blunder is nothing but a simple mixup of speed dial numbers.

” President Isaias Afwerki has unfortunately pressed the wrong button on his iPhone 2 that had personal number of the Russian President. Just a simple mistake, nothing more.” Mr. Gebremeskel said.
