A duo of Russian pranksters have allegedly tricked Representative Maxine Waters for a second time by pretending to be Greta Thunberg and her father.
“Greta” Speaks to Maxine
Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, better known as Vovan and Lexus, run a Russian-language prank channel on YouTube. They rose to fame in the English-speaking world when they called Representative Adam Schiff, posing as Ukrainian Leaders who had dirt on President Trump – they told Schiff they had naked photos of the President, which he seemed to believe quite readily!
They first called up Waters in 2017, pretending to be the then Ukrainian President, and discussed sanctions with her. This time, they posed as Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who’s turned her hand to climate activism, and her father, and had a second round of fun with the dim-witted California representative.
The prank starts off with “Greta” and her supposed father telling Waters that they are currently campaigning in a little known island in North Carolina called “Chunga Changa.” Despite the ridiculous sounding name, Rep. Maxine was quick to offer up a speech to an imaginary crowd at their imaginary campaign event.
“Nobody Will Believe You Little Girl!”
The call proceeded to get even more absurd. “Greta” said that she had an encounter with President Trump at the United Nations, with the President supposedly admitting he did “push” the Ukrainian President to investigate Joe Biden.
“You know, little girl, nobody will believe 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 that accuse me,” the President apparently said.
When told there is a recording, Waters jumps at the chance to get “Greta” to testify as such to Congress.
“Oh yes, I am absolutely still working – we are working very hard, we’re putting together the facts, and we’re going after him,” she said. “We are going to try everything that we have to impeach him. And if the public knew that he talked to Greta like that, he made her cry, and told her she would never achieve – this will go against him, too.”
Time to Go Maxine!
This really is embarassing for poor old Maxine Waters – falling for the antics of pranksters once is bad enough, but two times?! It may be time for her to quit the day job and retire to a nice home, probably with one padded walls. As the old adage goes, “fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me!”
Waters has not officially confirmed being pranked, but why would she? You can watch the video “allegedly” featuring the congresswoman in all its glory below:
