5. the trump family and now the (r)epuglicons have been under russian control so long that it seems

like normal to them.

"Doesn't everyone get extra money from a guy called Igor?"

"I trust the KGB/GRU to help me set up my WiFi hot-spot more than those geeks from the NSA. They appear to know what the are doing!"

"My russki friends are so much more accommodating with things like booze, loans, girls/boys - they know how to have a good time."

10. My husband says there was a bar in Europe where NSA, KGB, and others went.

He said if you bought them a couple of drinks, they would tell you what YOUR job was.

14. Not, however, a real quote:

THE EMBASSY OF FINLAND IN WASHINGTON, D.C., and various members of the Government have issued statements rebuking claims that PM Sanna Marin had made a certain disparaging comment about the Trump Administration.

On 26 June, a Twitter user claiming to be in the US tweeted 'John Bolton’s new book reveals that Trump thought Finland was under Russian control. Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin says, “To be fair, we’ve thought the same thing about the United States since January 20, 2017'.
...
However, there is no evidence that the Prime Minister made the comments attributed to her in the viral tweet. A press official from the Embassy of Finland in the United States, Helena Liikanen-Renger, posted on Twitter that the statement "is not true".

Meanwhile, Government Communications Director Päivi Anttikoski told HS that he had been contacted by CNN, an American news outlet, to comment on the claims. He reiterated that the claims are untrue and also revealed that "substantial efforts" to counter the spread of the claims have been underway over the course of the weekend.
