This is painful to watch but also pretty darn funny.
A team of Russian pranksters recently got Rep. Maxine Waters to take their phone call by claiming to be teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg and her father.
Waters seems so delighted to take their call.
Russian Pranksters: Maxine Waters Fell for Call from ‘Greta Thunberg’ Offering a Taped Trump Confession
The Russian pranksters famous for tricking House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) into seeking nude pictures of President Donald Trump are claiming that they just got Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) — for a second time.
YouTubers Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who go by the names Vovan and Lexus, recently called Waters’s office and, with the help of a female colleague, pretended to be teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, TIME‘s “Person of the Year” for 2019, and her father, claiming to have a taped confession from Trump admitting to the exact charges in House Democrats’ articles of impeachment which passed in late December.
A woman who identifies herself as Congresswoman Waters tells “Greta”: “Of course, I know all about you. You have made quite a big, big, big thunder on this issue. I am really, really very proud of you and the work that you’re doing.”
The prank callers trick Waters into making a statement in defense of the environment of an imaginary island named “Chunga Changa.”
The call gets more farcical when “Greta” tells Waters that she met Trump at the United Nations, where he privately insulted her and confessed to threatening Ukraine’s president.
