That Escalated Quickly: Russia TV Anchor Reminds Viewers That Russia Can Destroy the USA

Posted by Dan Savage on Mon, Mar 17, 2014 at 9:44 AM


An influential Russian news anchor reminded any viewers not already convinced of the nation's nuclear might that Russia is “the only country in the world capable of turning the U.S.A. into radioactive dust." Dmitry K. Kiselyov, an anchor hand-picked by Russian President Vladimir Putin to head Russia Today who is notorious for delivering on-air rants against foreign leaders and gays, made the comments on the Sunday evening news as the U.S. condemned the Russia-backed referendum in Crimea, according to the New York Times.... Kiselyov also claimed that President Barack Obama's hair had turned gray from fretting about Russia's nuclear power, according to the Times.

This is the same guy who said that the hearts of gay people who die in car accidents should be cut out and burned, not transplanted into people waiting for a donor. He was handpicked by Putin to head up "the entire state-controlled Russian news conglomerate."
