No matter which side of the aisle you're on, I think we all take politics a bit too seriously at times.  So much so that most people become numb to all of the rhetoric, which doesn't benefit anyone.  So when I read stories like this one, it's an opportunity for us ALL to laugh.

Sanders Gets Pranked By Greta Thunberg Impersonator: Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov recently pranked Bernie Sanders by pretending to be climate activist Greta Thunberg and her father, Svante. Vladimir, Alexei and a woman impersonating Greta had a 10-minute phone call with Bernie in which they offered their support.

Bernie said, “Let us continue to talk and when you come to the United States I will bring some people together and we can do some interesting things, and if you wanted to make a statement in support of my candidacy and the program we have outlined for climate change, I would be very very appreciative”

The call ended when the Greta impersonator said, “In the Soviet Union in 1988, after you were recruited you were programmed to work for Russia and your memory was erased so the CIA wouldn’t track you down. Yes, you became a sleeper agent of the KGB. Now it’s time to wake up and fulfill your mission, become president of the United States, build communism in the United States and work for Russia!”

Bernie yelled, “This is what you believe?”
