It had taken a short break from that to mourn Hollywood icons Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.
This evening the Drudge Report headlines with how the Russians are channeling Donald Trump. Those Russians are leveraging both Trump's use of Twitter and his blunt sarcasm.
The Russian Twitter attack is in response to Obama's booting out 35 Russian officials, closing down two Russian-owned compounds and sanctioning Russian intelligence.
Obama blames the Russians for the hacking of the Democrats during Campaign 2016. Here is the coverage in The Independent, which the Drudge Report links to.
The Russian tweet refers to the Obama White House as the "hapless administration." And it accuses it of resurrecting the ethos of the cold war.
Obviously, through this, the Russians are deepening their bonds with Trump. There is that old insight about networking: If you and I share the shame enemies, that makes us allies. Both the Russians and Trump have been showing an antipathy toward Obama.
Continually Trump humiliates Obama by playing the role of U.S. president even though the official transition of power is weeks away. The meme created is that America now has two presidents.
That throws Obama off his game. Trump is a Machiavellian genius about power dynamics.
