Russian pranksters say they fooled Bernie Sanders by posing as Greta Thunberg

Dana Mathewson

Well, folks, there are these two Russians who seem to be good at fooling people into thinking they are somebody they aren't. Back on Jan. 7 I posted an article about how they "punked" Rep. Maxine Waters into thinking they were St. Greta of Thunberg and her father, fresh from an interview with President Trump, in which he was rather rude to them and told them some things he shouldn't have, and wouldn't Ms. Waters like to hear them, if so we'll set up another call on a better line, etc., etc. Apparently Slapsy Maxie fell for it, hook, line and sinker.

Now they say they schnookered Karl Marx... er, Bernie Sanders. It's not clear at this time whether Bernie has admitted it.

A pair of Russian pranksters who have targeted several high-profile American politicians claim they called Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders late last year posing as teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg with an offer to support his campaign.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov Told the Associated Press the call took place in December 2019. The pair posted an audio recording of the purported call to YouTube on Thursday. The Sanders campaign did not immediately return Fox News' request to verify whether or not the recording is authentic.

The recording was released more than two months after the call because of Sanders' success in the Iowa Democratic caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, they said.

On the call, a female pretends to be Thunberg and Stolyarov plays her father, Svante. They offer to lend support to the Vermont senator's campaign. Sanders suggests "Greta" make a public statement in support of him and that they do an event together the next time she visits the United States.

This article, like the other one, includes a video. The entire article is here: https://www.foxnews.com/politics/bernie-sanders-russian-pranksters-greta-thunberg

1 Proof the man is clueless and perhaps senile.

2 I'm not taking his side on this or anything else, but there really isn't proof they DID punk him. I don't think they can prove it was him on the video since those things are easy to fake these days. But these guys are funny either way.

I sure wish Karl Marx were senile and could be proven so! Right now he's dangerous.
