Breaking: Putin Responds To Obama And The Lame Duck President Won’t Be Happy

President Vladimir Putin’s Response Is Yuge!

Yesterday President Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats based on unsubstantiated claims that Russia hacked the election starting off what could be described as another cold war.

Today Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia responded and his response is not going to make President Obama happy.

From the Kremlin:

Statement by the President of Russia

December 30, 2016 15:15

We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole.

As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-US relations based on the policies of the Trump Administration.

The diplomats who are returning to Russia will spend the New Year’s holidays with their families and friends. We will not create any problems for US diplomats. We will not expel anyone. We will not prevent their families and children from using their traditional leisure sites during the New Year’s holidays. Moreover, I invite all children of US diplomats accredited in Russia to the New Year and Christmas children’s parties in the Kremlin.

It is regrettable that the Obama Administration is ending its term in this manner. Nevertheless, I offer my New Year greetings to President Obama and his family.

My season’s greetings also to President-elect Donald Trump and the American people.

I wish all of you happiness and prosperity.

I think if Obama was looking for an escalation of hostilities, he didn’t get what he wanted. Maybe now he will realize that he is playing checkers when the real men are playing 3D chess.

Which brings me to the epic troll the Russian Embassy in the U.K. posted on Twitter.

What do you think? Is this epic or what?
