While Barack Obama’s Thursday chest-thumping may have felt really good for grieving liberals it didn’t take long for the euphoria of publicly smacking Putin to wear off.
The tantrum thrower in chief drew up a fresh executive order giving himself the power to boot 35 Russian diplomats out of the U.S. over the great election hacking hoax and the media roared in approval. However, the Russians weren’t impressed and announced that they will reportedly retaliate in kind as promised.
As reported by Reuters “Russia to eject U.S. diplomats in response to sanctions: agencies”:
Russia on Friday announced plans to expel 35 U.S. diplomats and ban U.S. diplomatic staff from using a dacha and a warehouse in Moscow in retaliation to Washington’s sanctions, Russian news agencies reported.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted by the agencies as saying he had proposed the measures to President Vladimir Putin.
President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered the expulsion of 35 Russian suspected spies and imposed sanctions on two Russian intelligence agencies over their involvement in hacking U.S. political groups in the 2016 presidential election.
Lavrov said Russia would not leave the sanctions unanswered and said that allegations that Russia interfered in U.S. elections were baseless.
BREAKING: Russian foreign ministry asks Putin to expel 35 U.S. diplomats: Tass

If Putin greenlights the tit-for-tat response then it will be yet another time that he has punked Barry who is not likely to take it lying down with three weeks to go in his reign of terror. Thursday’s big production was an utter embarrassment to America on the world stage, something that has become commonplace during his miserable tenure as POTUS.
It really speaks to the stereotype of the ugly American to have Obama lying his ass off and stomping his feet because he didn’t get his way in an election but Democrats have set new standards for sore losers with their ongoing bitch fit over crooked Hillary’s inability to close the deal in three traditionally blue states.
Poking a finger in Obama’s eye by expelling a like number of U.S. diplomats would be a piping hot shit sandwich served up with a vodka chaser but will only result in more childish foot stomping by Dear Leader.
January 20th just can’t get here quickly enough.
