There’s absolutely nothing to see here, folks, simply Russian overlord Vladimir Putin displaying an “ invincible ” nuclear rocket ruining Florida. Oh, and the editor of among Russia’s the majority of well-known media outlets is utilizing it to mock Elon Musk.
Just another day in 2018.
Taking his function of real-life Bond bad guy to brand-new heights, Putin utilized his yearly state-of-the-nation speech to the Russian Federal Assembly on Thursday to extol the nation’s brand-new nuclear weapons he declared might strike any point on the world and would render any defense “ ineffective .”
Seriously, take a look at this thing.
It’s like something from a comics (presuming it exists).
And taking that supervillain example one-step even more, Putin’s speech had plenty of bombast. Per NBC News’ translation:
“I wish to talk those who have actually sustained the arms race over the last 15 years, looked for to win unilateral benefits over Russia, presented illegal sanctions intended to include our nation’s advancement … you have actually cannot include Russia,” he stated.
He implicated the West of “disregarding us. No one paid attention to us. Well pay attention to us now.”
That’s frightening enough as it is however as Gizmodo notes , the video displaying this brand-new super-weapon utilizes a not-so-innocuous target on which to drizzle down its radioactive fear: the state of Florida.
Yep, that’s the main part of the state, consisting of Tampa Bay, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, and (obviously) Palm Beach, house of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club.
TL; DR, Putin is out here dropping casual risks of nuclear armageddon on the part of the nation where Trump prefers to go golf and obtain weapon control recommendations from nation club members. This cannot benefit the set’s complex bromance .
You can see Putin’s total two-hour speech here .
If this appears familiar, it’s quite just like the exact same stunt that North Korea pulled nearly 2 years back when it shared a propaganda video that consisted of the nuclear obliteration of Washington, D.C.
As if that’s insufficient, Margarita Simonovna Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of RT, the questionable Moscow-based news outlet that draws some financing from the Russian federal government, chose to commemorate Russia’s brand-new nuclear may by buffooning Elon Musk.

Because threatening to eliminate the house of Mickey Mouse wasn’t enough, Russia’s out here insulting America’s state-of-the-art business owners? Exactly what did Elon ever do to you, RT?
Nothing to see here. Whatever is great.
Though, if truth TELEVISION star Donald Trump can be president, than an action-hero face-off in between Musk and Putin isn’t truly that far off?
