Russian state media mocks Trump's July 4 military celebration: 'Putin's America'

Journalists with Russian state-run media mocked the military hardware featured in President Trump’s “Salute to America” Fourth of July celebration earlier this week, with some joking about the quality of the equipment and others blasting the spectacle as something you would see under “Putin’s America.”

During a broadcast of Russian television show “60 minutes,” which airs on the state-owned Russian television channel, Rossiya 1, journalists mocked the military equipment in footage of the hardware captured in Washington earlier this week, The Washington Post reports.

In video from the program, the journalists joked about the “paint peeling off” and some of the features they said had been had been “glued on with adhesive tape” to some of the military vehicles.

In a tweet featuring footage of some of the military equipment arriving in Washington, D.C., Skabeyeva wrote in Russian with a "laughing" emoji: “Tanks in the streets of Washington, Trump is preparing for the parade. Putin’s America.”

2. Putin is going to move heaven and earth to make sure Trump is re-elected

Nothing could be better for him than for the President of the United States to be mocked around the world like he is. It's the culmination of all his dreams.

It's actually kind of terrifying that Putin has gone from praising Trump to belittling him like this. It just shows how important it is to him that Trump stay in place.

5. I wouldn't try attempting to predict actions of an ex-KGB agent...

What about the Criminal-In-Thief's promise to build a Trump-tower in Moscow? Were ANY sanctions on Russia lifted by the Trump regime?
