V. Saxena reports Russian President Vladimir Putin’s administration has responded to U.S. President Barack Obama’s newly enacted sanctions against his nation, and the response is hilarious.
First, it should be noted that Putin himself refrained from making any statements about Obama’s decision to impose sanctions and expel 35 Russian diplomats.
The same could not be said of the Russian president’s litany of officials, including those at the Russian embassy in the U.K., who according to reports issued this amusing tweet about Obama:

As reported by the U.K. Daily Mail, Russia’s foreign ministry also chimed in, referring to Obama and his advisers as a “group of foreign policy losers, angry and shallow-brained.”
Though Putin is reportedly a bad guy, I cannot help but take immense pleasure from these statements. The fact is that Obama deserved them.
As Breitbart reported, Obama’s sanctions against Russia came “after months of unproven claims by the Obama administration that Russian intelligence agencies influenced the U.S. election by releasing emails through Wikileaks that proved embarrassing to Democrats.”
And as a reminder, Obama was the same lying, conniving, and hypocritical sleazeball who maliciously tried to interfere in the Israeli elections .
“The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday,” The Washington Times revealed five months ago.

Accuracy In Media: Obama’s Evidence Against Russia Falls Flat
The irony is that all the anti-Russian kvetching by Obama and crew are nothing more than an attempt to make Trump’s election victory look illegitimate.
That the Russians may have attempted to interfere in the election was indeed wrong, though it had not yet been proven, but like Matt Vespa recently wrote for Townhall, “Clinton lost — Period.”
Plus, the so-called evidence provided in a recent report issued by the Obama administration lacked substance and in reality proved nothing, according to Accuracy in Media.
It would have been nice if reporters had read the pathetically thin report before concluding that there was substance to it, and that Trump was somehow derelict in not accepting what Obama had to offer.
Only four-and-a-half pages of the 13-page report purport to examine alleged Russian hacking activities. The rest of the report gives advice on how to provide security for computer networks.
Obama therefore issued sanctions for nothing — ergo why the Russians (and many Americans) viewed him as nothing more than a very LAME duck!
