President Putin knows how to make Obama look like a man, who is jealous and confused. Putin just announced he will not expell any American diplomats from Russia in response to sanctions. Putin just made a smart move, and I thank him for not playing along with Obama’s last temper tantrum before he leaves office. I know Americans can hold out a little longer. We don’t have too much time left until President-elect Trump will be President Trump. I think Trump can repair any damage done with Russia. Trump and Putin are both confident and powerful men, and they don’t have to play games with one another to get attention. Obama needs the attention right now, so he is doing whatever he can to get it. I don’t think it is working. However, I will support Trump in whatever he decides when he goes over the 13-page report the DHS and the FBI just put out on the purported hacking of the DNC and the Podesta emails. I am just thankful that WE THE PEOPLE now know the truth behind the criminality of the DNC and the Clinton Camp. The truth is no longer buried, and we pray there will be a Hillary Clinton indictment before it is all over. I think the American people are more interested in getting to the bottom of the Clinton Foundation mess than accusing Russia of hacking the DNC and Podesta. In fact, we are appreciative of knowing just how corrupt the DNC was and the lies inside the Clinton campaign camp. Please understand that this has nothing to do with Election being hacked, because IT WAS NOT.
The Russian put this tweet out in response to Obama’s meanderings:
This morning, in response to the sanctions, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov suggested President Vladimir Putin expel 31 employees at the US embassy in Moscow and 4 diplomats from the US consulate in St. Petersburg.
The Foreign Ministry also suggested banning US diplomats from their dachas in Serebryany Bor near Moscow and a warehouse on Moscow’s Dorozhnaya Street.
But the President has now confirmed that they won’t be expelling US diplomats.
Russia denies any involvement and has called the US action ‘ungrounded’

However, Russia has hit back saying that it does not believe the move is legal and said that diplomatic relations between the two countries have been destroyed.
A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said the new sanctions were a sign of Mr Obama’s ‘unpredictable and, if I may say, aggressive foreign policy’ and were aimed at undermining President-elect Donald Trump.
‘We think that such steps by a US administration that has three weeks left to work are aimed at two things: to further harm Russian-American ties, which are at a low point as it is, as well as, obviously, to deal a blow to the foreign policy plans of the incoming administration of the president-elect,’ Dmitry Peskov told reporters in Moscow.
The state department has also kicked out 35 Russian diplomats from its embassy in Washington and consulate in San Francisco, giving them and their families 72 hours to leave the US.
The diplomats were declared persona non grata for acting in a “manner inconsistent with their diplomatic status”.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he will not expel any US diplomats from the country. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had earlier requested that Putin remove 35 American diplomats in Russia, in a tit-for-tat response to a similar move by Washington over hacking allegations. Putin said in a Friday statement that Russia will not create problems for American diplomats.
