Russia Turns on Morgan Freeman Over Election ‘War’ Video
Want to weed some alt right Putin pawns from your twitter fee? Just look for the ones attacking Morgan Freeman with Russia Today meme and themes this week.
Russia has aimed its entire media arsenal at the veteran Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman over his appearance in a video accusing the Kremlin of waging “war” on America during last year’s presidential election.
The video shows the Oscar winner accusing President Vladimir Putin, a “former KGB spy”, of launching cyber attacks and spreading false information in order to avenge the collapse of the Soviet Union.
He urges President Donald Trump to tell the nation that “during this past election, we came under attack by the Russian government”.
The clip was produced by The Committee to Investigate Russia, a group set up by Hollywood director Rob Reiner to expose what it calls Russia’s “aggressive effort to subvert the American democratic process”.
