Alexey Pushkov, a Russian government official, exploited the murder of innocents in America to mock the notion of "American exceptionalism."
The jerk took to Twitter to gloat. This is really sick stuff.
From the Washington Times:
A Russian official blasted “American exceptionalism” in a tweet Monday morning, saying the deadly shooting at Washington’s Navy Yard confirms the worst about the U.S.
“A new shootout at Navy headquarters in Washington — a lone gunman and 7 corpses. Nobody’s even surprised anymore,” tweeted Alexey Pushkov, a member of the Russian parliamentary foreign affairs committee.
“A clear confirmation of American exceptionalism,” he added, according to multiple translations of the original Russian tweet.
Mr. Pushkov went on in English to say that American exceptionalism “contradicts the principles of equal rights and smells of political racism.”
I think Pushkov is speaking on behalf of Vladimir Putin.
These Russians are enjoying mocking the U.S. There seems to be no concern about poisoning relations between the countries.
They know Obama is weak. We have a weak, incompetent president, at home and on the world stage. Obama is screwing up America. The Russians are loving that.
Obama needs to man up.
