In the annals of phone pranks, the antics of a pair of Russian comedians, Vovan (Vladimir Kuznetsov) and Lexus (Alexei Stoliarov) may rank as simultaneously the most hilarious, disturbing, cringeworthy and revealing of how stupid, contemptible and dangerous are some of the US’ elected officials.
Over the past week, Vovan and Lexus successfully placed three lengthy phone calls with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), pretending to be Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman of the Ukraine. The call to Maxine Waters has since been verified as authentic by RT.
The pranksters carried out detailed discussions about the future of US-NATO sanctions against Russia and convinced Waters that the Russian Army had invaded the Ukrainian cities of Lvov and Limpopo, as well as the African nation of Gabon.
After greeting prankster Vovan, “Hello Mr. Prime Minister, how are you?” Senator McCain was quick to launch into how he would urge President Trump to send “lethal weapons” to Ukraine to fight the Russians and to increase the current sanctions against Russia. What is he? An arms dealer? Seriously.
This would be funny if it were just a joke but the evidence produced by these pranks reveals how McCain, Graham and Waters are mobbed-up warmongers, set upon undermining President Donald Trump’s attempts to make peace with Russia – violently, in the case of McCain.
