As Russian President Vladimir Putin demeaned Hussein Obama as a petty and irrelevant failure whose time has gone and refused to engage in reciprocal diplomatic expulsions, his underlings were less reserved in their condemnation. Supposedly there were hacks by Russia of embarrassing information about Hillary Clinton but the Obama regime has still refused to provide any proof of the claims, just the typical assertions based upon anonymous sources. Even a supposed report from the politicized DHS and FBI contained nothing of any substance and was largely a meaningless collection of public service announcements space-fillers.
Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov slammed the Obama regime as being a “group of foreign policy losers, angry and shallow-brained.” Lavrov dismissed further interactions with the Obama White House, saying future steps would be “based on the policies pursued by the administration of president Donald Trump.”
Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of the Russian Duma’s committee on foreign affairs, was reported to have ventured beyond lame duck, describing Obama as a ‘political corpse’. He said, “The leaving administration has no reason and no political or moral right for such drastic and disruptive steps with regards to bilateral relations with Russia. Forgive me for being harsh, but I just cannot find other words: this is the agony of not the lame ducks, but of political corpses.”
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova had a few observations of her own, describing the US and American people as having been “humiliated by their own President’ in Cold War-style measures against Moscow. She can be forgiven for calling Obama our president, it’s a common misperception.
Zakharova mocked the lack of achievements and the destructiveness of Obama’s 8 years, saying, “The most surprising thing is that having failed to add to the history any achievements at the world stage, the Nobel Prize winner managed to make a big inkblot instead of an elegant mark.
She offered compassion for John Kerry having to deal with the rest of the Obama regime, saying, “Only Kerry deserves sympathy from this group of spoilers. He was not an ally, but he tried to remain professional and to keep his human dignity. His own colleagues were mocking him, cheated on him and did not let him work. God save any Secretary of State from what he had to go through.”
It’s got to be quite an achievement for Kerry to be recognized as having maintained his dignity as his tongue was frequently hanging out and darting about like a lizard in a mosquito swarm. Maybe she just looked at him and naturally felt sorry for him. Zakharova added, “Mr. Kerry, at this hard moment for the USA let me express my solidarity with you – you have done everything possible in order to prevent foreign policy collapse in your country.” You know your nation is in bad shape when the Russians recognize John Kerry as the shining star.
Former president from 2008 to 2012 and current Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev, voiced his disappointment with the Obama actions, saying, “It is sad that the Obama administration that began its life by restoring ties ends it with anti-Russian death throes. RIP
Zakharova expressed her views that the American people were let down by the White House, “Not by international terrorists, not by troops of the enemy. This time Washington got a slap in the face from its own master and it increased the urgent agenda of the incoming Donald Trump team to its maximum level.”
She continued the blistering rebuke, saying, “That’s all, the curtain falls, the bad performance is over. The whole world, from the stalls to the upper balcony, is watching the smashing blow on American prestige and its leadership made by Barack Obama and his illiterate foreign policy team, that disclosed its top secret to the world – their exceptional nature was a mask for their helplessness. No single enemy could do more harm to the USA.”
Senior MP Irina Yarovaya, a Deputy Speaker, accused Obama of taking out his “revenge” against the American people for having rejected four more years of the same declines under Clinton. She said, “The outgoing Obama administration’s actions increasingly resemble a revenge on US voters and are getting more and more destructive. No matter how many diplomats Obama expels, it’s his aggressive and Russophobe policies that were discarded by US citizens. By retiring with a scandal, you only demonstrate your bad manners and admit a total political defeat.”
