Following the sanctions placed on Russia by President Barack Obama this morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin has promised retaliation. Perhaps part of his retaliation includes the work of Twitter. The Russian Embassy UK, @RussianEmbassy on Twitter, released a tweet stating that everybody, including Americans, are looking forward to the end of Obama’s “hapless” administration.
Take a look at the tweet below.

I think we are all surprised by Russia’s ability to meme. The ‘lame duck’ reference is likely to spark a response.
