Russia manipulated US Christians with bizarre Facebook meme showing Hillary Clinton fist-fighting Jesus

Published

on

Earlier this week, it was revealed that a Russian-backed website launched a campaign to convince conservatives that African-Americans had turned against the celebration of Christmas.

Now a new Russian Facebook meme revealed by Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) during a Senate Intelligence hearing on Wednesday shows that the Russian government took over-the-top measures to depict former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as anti-Christian by showing her getting into a boxing match with Jesus Christ.

The meme, which was made by a Russia-created Facebook Christian group called “Army of Jesus,” shows Jesus and Clinton — who is dressed in a red devil costume complete with horns — facing off against one another with their fists raised. The caption under the meme reads, “‘Like’ if you want Jesus to win!”

As Mashable notes, the Senate hearings also revealed that Russian Facebook groups tried to organize both pro-Muslim and anti-Muslim demonstrations that would occur at the exact same times and places, in an effort to spark conflict between groups that shared mutual hatreds.

Speaking with hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, Haberman was asked what the American public can expect from the president on Tuesday as Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an Army officer who works on the National Security Council testify.

GOP senator lured into Ukraine saga by The Hill’s sketchy reporter — but he still won’t recuse himself on impeachment

Published

on

Sen. Ron Johnson -- who's more deeply involved in the Ukraine scandal than any other lawmaker -- insists there's no reason for him to recuse himself from voting on impeachment.

The Wisconsin Republican, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s panel on Europe, has been so engaged in Ukraine matters that he could be called as a fact witness in the impeachment inquiry, reported The Daily Beast.

He's been so involved, in fact, that Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Devin Nunes (R-CA) -- two of President Donald Trump's strongest congressional allies -- asked him to provide his recollection of what took place with Ukraine.
