I have read that Seagal will work on "environmental protection" in his new role with this political party.

In Russia?

They love strongmen and hate democracy. Sly Stallone was dismissive of Trump's Russian sympathies. Don't be surprised if he defects at some point. Jean Claude Van-Damne is horrifically racist and sympathetic to dictators.

Although he hates Trump, he's still a lifelong Republican. Bruce Willis is a Republican too. Don't know about Chuck Norris.

This guy sure is a ... weird one. You wouldn't think a buddhist would want to hang with Russian oligarch war criminals.

In February 1997, Lama Penor Rinpoche from Palyul monastery announced that Seagal was a tulku, and specifically the reincarnation of Chungdrag Dorje, a 17th-century terton (treasure revealer) of the Nyingma, the oldest sect of Tibetan Buddhism. (Wikipedia)

Will Sasso did a hilarious Steven Seagal. Look up the various skits on YouTube, if you want to laugh.

How Did Steven Seagal And Vladimir Putin Become BFFs? Bob Van Ronkel Introduced Them
July 3, 2018 5:01 AM ET

For the past two decades, Bob Van Ronkel has been the Forrest Gump of U.S.-Russia relations.

He helped introduce Steven Seagal to Vladimir Putin. He helped introduce Jim Carrey to Oleg Deripaska, the now-sanctioned aluminum tycoon.

Then there were Jack Nicholson, Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson, Lara Flynn Boyle and more, all making visits to Russia — Van Ronkel was even there when Donald Trump's Miss Universe pageant visited Moscow.

Van Ronkel runs Doors to Hollywood, a company that brings American celebrities to Russia and other parts of the former Soviet Union. If an actor or musician traveled to Russia to hobnob with Putin or wealthy Russian oligarchs such as Deripaska, chances are he was involved.
