Rarely do we see politicians have this much fun with a serious matter. But Twitter seems to bring out the best in them.
After Russia imposed entry bans on a handful of U.S. politicians, those same politicians took to Twitter to have some fun with it and say they’re proud to be #SanctionedByPutin.
But later in the day, Arizona Sen. John McCain tossed out this gem and mocked the Russian sanctions:
I guess this means my spring break in Siberia is off, Gazprom stock is lost & secret bank account in Moscow is frozen http://t.co/TgwZneD4HY— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) March 20, 2014
In an official release, he goes on to say “I will never cease my efforts on behalf of the freedom, independence, and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea.”
