HOW DARE HE!
This time it wasn't Maxine Waters who got pranked by Russian comedians, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, it was 78-year-old Sanders.
The pranksters called presidential candidate Sanders and pretended to be the famed climate shamer Greta Thunberg and offered her support in Sanders' campaign.
The call took place in early December, but the duo decided to release it more than two months later because of Sanders' success in Iowa and New Hampshire, Kuznetsov told The Associated Press on Skype.
A representative for the campaign didn't comment on the authenticity of the call, but you can be fairly certain the voice you hear in the video [below] as Bernie Sanders is Bernie Sanders.
The 78-year-old Sanders suggests that “Greta” make a statement in his support and that they do an event together when she next comes to the U.S. “I would be really appreciative,” he says.
“Greta" then proposes to record a rap song in support of Sanders together with “singer Billie Eilish and rapper Kanye West."
Sanders says that would be “terrific” and tries to end the conversation, but the duo says “Greta” is about to visit Russia and needs advice on how to behave there.
The video is only about 11 minutes long and is worth a listen. Note how Sanders, in his critique of Putin, only says that the Russian leader is bad on environmental issues. The communism seems okay because he doesn't criticize it.
He finally realizes he's being pranked when "Greta" tries to convince him that he's a Russian "sleeper" KGB agent.
