Default Russian Pranksters Posing As Greta Thunberg Claim They Tricked Bernie In Phony Phone

VIDEO: Russian Pranksters Posing As Greta Thunberg Claim They Tricked Bernie In Phony Phone Call
By Joseph Curl

Russian pranksters claim they tricked 2020 front runner Sen. Bernie Sanders into believing that climate activist Greta Thunberg wanted to enlist singers Kanye West and Billie Eilish to endorse him in a “cool rap” video.

The pranksters, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, have fooled a slew of high-profile people. On Thursday, they posted a clip on YouTube that features a man with Sanders’ voice, which they claim was recorded in early December.

In the recording (below), an unnamed female pretends to be Greta, while Stolyarov plays the Swedish teenager’s father, Svante.

“Hi, this is Senator Bernie Sanders calling for Greta,” the phone call begins.

Sanders then chats with the father and Greta, praising her work. He asks “Greta” if she’d be open to making a statement in support of his candidacy and suggests that they do an event together when she is in the United States. “I would be very, very appreciative,” Sanders says.

“Greta” then proposes that she record “a cool rap” song with “singer Billie Eilish and rapper Kanye West.”

“I ask them and they would like to do a cool rap and shoot a video clip. In this way you will be able to tell young people about your progress,” “Greta” says.

“They would be willing to do something on the internet on that?” Sanders asks. “Rap music is very popular,” he adds.

“Greta says yes, but adds that “If we want to make the video successful, we need to put there a lot of expensive cars, and girls. And I think you need to wear gold jewelry and chains, it will be nice,” she adds.

“OK,” Sanders says, laughing.

The call goes south quickly after “Greta” suggests that Sanders is a “sleeper agent” for Russia.

“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!” she says. Sanders appears to hang up the phone as she speaks.

The pranksters, who go by the stage names Vovan and Lexus, have hit other politicians before. They posted a video in January of them talking to a woman, who identified herself as Rep. Maxine Waters in the audio. Once again, someone pretends to be Greta Thunberg, the other to be her father.

The conversation begins with the fake Greta telling Waters that she is in North Carolina at a climate summit calling for the protection of the fake “Chon-Go-Chango” islands.

“Chon-Go-Chango?” Waters asks. “That island is particularly threatened?”

“Yes,” fake Greta says.

The fake Greta then asks Waters to make some comments to the meeting, and the California Democrat does so, praising Greta.

Then the Russian playing Greta tells Waters that she had a meeting with Trump at the United Nations back in September.

“It was a really terrible meeting in the U.N. building in September with him. And I had nightmares afterwards. It’s terrible,” fake Greta told Waters. “I saw him in the hallway. He was with security and I shouted at him, ‘Sign the Paris Climate Agreement again!’ He came over, he leaned in towards me, and said softly, ‘Listen carefully to me, little girl. You will never achieve your goal, like the congressional goal, trying to accuse me.’”

“He said you will never achieve your goal? Oh my goodness,” Waters said, sounding shocked. “Did you ask him if he would rethink signing the Paris Climate Agreement? Is that your question to him?”

“Yes, yes,” one of the Russians said. “He added that … ‘You know what? I’ll tell you the truth. I really wanted to push the Ukraine president to put my competitor on trial.'”

Her fake father then joined in.

“[Trump] said to her, ‘You know, little girl, nobody believes you anyway, I will tell you the truth. I really pushed on Ukrainian president and you know that you will never achieve your goals like those congressional fools who accuse me,” the fictional parent told Waters. “So nobody will believe you. You will be on trial like my competitor.”

“Oh, my God! He mentioned Ukrainian president?” Waters asked.

“Yes, he said that,” the Russian said. “And he added, ‘Nobody will believe you anyway.’”

The fake father said his daughter had a recording of her exchange with Trump, adding that “he pushed on the Ukrainian president. I think he didn’t expect that we have a record of that.”

That prompted Waters to ask: “Are you going to be in Washington anytime soon? I want you to come meet with me in Washington.” And she added about the recording: “Well, you bring it to me. You tell me what day you can get there and we’ll arrange to meet with you as quickly as we can. … I will make myself available whenever you get there.”

i don't care if its bernie or not, its dag funny!!!!!!!
