Zelenski, the favorite to become Ukraine’s next president, took son’s toy!

True story:

Volodymyr Zelensky, the guy who came in first in Ukraine’s presidential election, and will likely win the run off, once took my then-two-year-old son’s toy.

We were leaving a restaurant in Kyiv, and the toy was on a chair while my wife helped our son with his jacket. Zelenski, who was there with what I assume were his own kids, picked it up.

He returned it immediately after my wife said something, and he said quietly that he thought it was for everybody, which seems plausible.

I didn’t recognize him at the time. On the way home, my wife told me he was an actor.
