Russian state media furious with Trump after loss to Biden: 'Nothing will ever be the same'

Raw Story
November 7, 2020
By Tom Boggioni

According to the Daily Beast’s Russian media expert, news that Donald Trump failed to secure another four years in the Oval Office was not well received by commentators on Kremlin-backed media outlets with one commentator wailing, “Nothing will ever be the same.”

While the president had insisted that he did not have the backing of Russia, media figures told a different tale after word reached them that Joe Biden will be taking the reins in the U.S. in January.

As Julia Davis wrote, “Pro-Kremlin news anchors, pundits and experts have long dreaded former Vice President Joe Biden’s victory in 2020, having described it as ‘the worst scenario for Russia.’ As their nightmare became an inevitable reality, Russian state television shows were permeated with angry faces and raw emotions.”


Speaking on radio, lawmaker Vladimir Zhirinovsky sadly pointed out that Russia did not get all it wanted out of Trump.

“Trump didn’t do anything good for us,” he complained. “In his election campaign, he promised to improve [relations], but in reality he did nothing, he didn’t even come here. All U.S. presidents came to Russia and invited our president to their place in Washington, everyone except him. Donald Trump did not come to Moscow and never invited our president to Washington. Therefore, all we are left with are bad memories.”

Two things you never do.

1. Never call an Iranian/Persian an Arab.

2. Never call a Russian a fascist.

Unless you want to wake up some time later in a hospital from a coma.

Call them imperialist dogs, corrupt bastards, two face hoar's, unfeeling in-humans, etc. are all perfectly fine. But those two things, are a no-no.

Zhirinovsky is a Russian politician and leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia. He is fiercely nationalist and has been described as "a showman of Russian politics, blending populist and nationalist rhetoric, anti-Western invective and a brash, confrontational style".[1] His views have been described in the West as fascist.

What's in a name?
