Why is Obama even doing anything anyway? If he had any grace at all, he would be withdrawing from the spotlight now he’s in the Lame Duck Zone.
But he doesn’t. He is a petty, vindictive man-child, so he throws his toys out of the pram, expelling 35 Russian diplomats in order to maintain the ridiculous lie that the Russians were responsible for the Democrat Party email hacks, and hence Hillary Clinton’s loss in the presidential election.
Just to be clear, there is absolutely NO evidence whatsoever—NONE—that Russia was involved in hacking the Democrat Party emails. Wikileaks have said that it was a phishing email to which John Podesta responded, compromising his password.
If you use a Gmail address for anything, you should assume that it will be compromised. It’s not like the emails were faked – if the Democrats had kept their noses clean, there would have been no embarrassment. But they didn’t, and their shady dealings were revealed – too bad.
But the Russians have come up with the perfect response:
President Obama expels 35 🇷🇺 diplomats in Cold War deja vu. As everybody, incl 🇺🇸 people, will be glad to see the last of this hapless Adm. pic.twitter.com/mleqA16H8D
