Hillary Clinton Trolls Putin Following Sanctions On Her

After Russian dictator Vladimir Putin decided to invade the sovereign country of Ukraine, Russia has been hit with extraordinary sanctions by the United States and NATO allies around the world, including a ban on Russian oil imports.

Although the severe sanctions have yet to stop Russian attacks, Russia recently announced its own sanctions on several American officials, which prohibit them from traveling to Russia. According to the outlet, the list includes President Biden, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, Biden National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, CIA Director William Burns, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, Deputy National Security Adviser Daleep Singh, USAID Director Samantha Power, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Adewale Adeyemo, and U.S. Export-Import Bank President Reta Jo Lewis. But there are also people outside of the government on the ban list, including Hunter Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Well, it seems Hillary had the best response to this silly posturing that has no merit whatsoever.

" I want to thank the Russian Academy for this Lifetime Achievement Award," Tweeted Hillary.

Tony Gonzales tweeted in response to a provision on firearms included in that year's annual defense spending bill, "I will fight against any attempt to restrict our 2nd Amendment right, which is why I joined in urging the stripping of red flag laws from the final version of the bill." Gonzales was one of 161 Republican House members who signed a letter to the leadership of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees in October of that year urging that the provision be removed.
