Snopes has verified it:
An image purportedly showing a screenshot from a Russian state TV news program featuring eight Republican U.S. senators . . . made its way online in January 2019, along with the claim that the pictured American lawmakers were being “honored” or “thanked” for lifting sanctions against three companies controlled by Russian oligarch Oleg V. Deripaska . . .
. . . “#Russia’s state TV reports that for the first time since 2014, the US is lifting sanctions from Russian companies [#Deripaska’s Rusal et al.] The host laughs out loud about the Democrats not getting enough votes to block the effort, expresses hope that this is just the beginning.”
Putin is winning. The kleptocrats (guess where they’ve bought condos) are laughing all the way to the bank.
If you have five minutes, watch Bill Maher’s latest new rule. The mess in Washington is not the fault of both parties.
Another five? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes plays the bad guy. Is she anything but spot on here?
Quote of the Day
Probably the greatest harm done by vast wealth is the harm that we of moderate means do ourselves when we let the vices of envy and hatred enter deep into our own natures.~Teddy Roosevelt, 1902
