    Nothing unexpected. Putin got his 70+% of the vote. He got his 65+% turnout (after some last second changes, as usual). The fraud wasn't widespread enough to get people riled up.

    I like the slow mo search at the end, like "damn, I swore I had more than 3 bundles, must at left the rest at the last polling station"


    Anyone want to take bets that this shows up in 2020 when the Dems sweep through?

    WTF. Every other leader has had the common sense to be muted here.

    Didn't think I'd ever say this but full respect to Guy Verhofstadt - hits the nail on the head completely.

    And the President of the United States. Pathetic.

    Well done then to the more than a dozen that didn't. And John McCain stood up well to the embarrassment in chief.

    Maybe in normal circumstances whereby a clearly corrupt dictator rigs an election.

    Not when an active chemical weapon attack happens on an ally during the election.

    My favorite part is when there were more votes for Putin than ballots cast.
