The Russian state TV host Olga Skabeyeva mocked the military vehicles in President Donald Trump's "A Salute to America" display, saying, "There are no cannons, and their optics have been glued on with adhesive tape."

The hosts also called the display "weak" and "low energy."

President Donald Trump's July Fourth festivities featured military flyovers, Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and M1A2 tanks.

Russia's state TV is obsessively bashing Trump's "low energy," "weak" parade with "rusty tanks." The hosts LOL at Trump's claim about "revolutionary war airports" & other historical flubs. "There's your city upon a hill, there's your world leader—and Martians have been defeated."






====================================================================


Russian state media mocked President Donald Trump's "Salute to America" July Fourth event, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

The hosts of Rossiya 1's "60 Minutes" program, Yevgeny Popov and Olga Skabeyeva, both scoffed at the footage of tanks rolling into Washington, DC, ahead of Trump's military extravaganza.

"The greatest parade of all times is going to be held today in Washington, that is what our Donald Trump has said. The American president announced he would show us the newest tanks," Popov said.

Popov told the audience that, "these are Abrams and Sherman tanks, used during World War II and withdrawn from service in 1957." Trump had previously said both these retired tanks would be in the parade, but more modern equipment, Bradley fighting vehicles and M1A2 tanks, were actually featured in the spectacle.

Skabeyeva told the audience, "The paint on these vehicles is peeling off. There are no cannons, and their optics have been glued on with adhesive tape."

Skabayeva also tweeted footage of a military vehicle being transported by truck in Washington, with the caption, "Putin's America."

According to Julia Davis, a writer who studies Russian disinformation tactics, Russian state news also criticized Trump's display as being "low energy" and "weak," with "rusty tanks."

"The hosts LOL at Trump's claim about ' revolutionary war airports' & other historical flubs. 'There's your city upon a hill, there's your world leader—and Martians have been defeated,'" Davis tweeted.

Displays of military might are much more common in Russia than in the US and are an opportunity to show off advances in military technology, The Washington Post reported. Skabayeva scoffed that the condition of US military machinery was less important to Trump than "that the parade takes place with much fanfare."

The demonstration has had its fair share of critics stateside in the lead-up to the July Fourth celebrations. Trump visited France in 2017 and was wowed by their Bastille Day festivities, expressing his desire for a parade of his own. But a November parade was scrapped because of its exorbitant cost. The cost of Thursday's festivities is as yet unknown, but the Pentagon will be footing the bill for the military displays, which featured all five branches of the military.

We tend to believe that only Americans pay attention to Trump saying stupid things, but here we see that Russian state media noted that Trump had said "Sherman tanks" would be part of the 4th of July display. Isn't it nice that we get to watch totalitarian countries mock our national leaders ignorance of the military weapons he commands.

Egads!  Heads will roll!  Journalists will have to 'disappear' for this!  How dare they talk about Putin's personal brain dead bimbo concubine like this?  Putin's gonna be pissed.  He's spent a lot of time and effort creating the world's greatest international despotic rent boy.

So Russia is now openly laughing at the USA.  I imagine soon Trump will be tweeting to meet Putin and the border for a photo op. 

I'm laughing at Trump's America too.

Actually MEB, that's part of the problem.  You've been clear that you and like minded others don't care about Russia and their role in attacking the US. 

What you don't seem to get is that Russia also understands that you and like minded others don't care what they've done or continue to do and they are mocking not only Trump but his like minded base of supporters.

Who was it who said Russia doesn't have any fake news again?  Oh yeah.  Donald Trump.  So... According to your own president this is a quality hat rack.
