The Kremlin reacted to the video by asserting that the actor Morgan Freeman is suffering from “stress”.
The two minute clip features Freeman announcing that Russia attacked the United States by interfering in the presidential election. Apparently, this imaginary attack is their moral pretext to start World War 3.
The group behind the video, the Committee to Investigate Russia, claims to be “non-partisan” yet is made up of Never Trump neo-cons like Max Boot and David Frum in an unholy alliance with Hillary Clinton lapdogs like Rob "Meathead" Reiner.
Is CIR really a CIA front group?
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Freeman’s words were “purely emotional” during a press conference conference earlier today and that the video couldn’t be taken seriously because it was “not based on real information”.
“Many creative people fall prey to emotional stress without real information about the real state of things,” he was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency.
Peskov added that the campaign was ” a continuation of a form of McCarthyism,” and that “with time this will pass.”
We clearly are not actually at war with Russia in the real world, but is this the sick fantasy these lunatics want to make a self-fullfilling prophecy?
Do they actually prefer thermonuclear war to detente?
