It seem that the Russians have a sense of humor after all! With all the media hype about Russian meddling in US elections, one Russian came up with this terrific April fools joke that ended up stinging the Democrats!
In what could go down as one of the most interesting April Fools’ Day pranks of all time, the Russian Foreign Ministry posted on its Facebook page an audio file that supposedly showed the agency’s new switchboard message.
Listen as it starts in Russian, then you hear English.
The message begins with, “You have reached the Russian Embassy. Your call is very important to us.”
“To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponent, press 1,” the recording continues (in both English and Russian). Users are then instructed to “press 2” in order “to use the services of Russian hackers.” For “election interference” requests, “press 3.”
The AP has confirmed that it was indeed the Russian Ministry and it was meant as a joke.
Last Thursday, Putin dismissed the “endless and groundless” accusations of Russian meddling in the U.S. election, describing them “as part of the U.S. domestic political struggle.”
There has been no evidence that Russia in any way affected the actual election and there has been no evidence as yet of any collusion about the election between the Trump team and Russia.
Yet Main Stream Media continues to push the story while over looking the fact that John Podesta received millions from Russia while lobbying for them.
