On Monday, the Russian state television station RT released a bizarre satirical Christmas video that seems to make fun of the claim that President Donald Trump is allied with the Kremlin.
"Russian spies in the White House? Look at what the Donald got from RT for Christmas, "RT tweeted on Christmas Eve.
The tweet contained a video of an actor who looks like Trump opened Christmas presents under a Christmas tree. One of the first presents was by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The fake Trump opens the boxed present and finds two golden busts, one of him and one of the North Korean leaders.
Interestingly, Trump portrays Trump as somewhat narcissistic and quickly throws the bust of Kim into the trash can of one of his.
The next gift is a red hat "Make America Great Again", the President's signature. But the hat has a "Made in China" label, and the actor playing Trump furiously throws his hat to the ground as he nods his nod to Trump's ongoing trade war with Beijing.
Among the other gifts is a golden crown of the King of Saudi Arabia, which Trump apparently enjoys, and chocolate bars like the President.
But the gift that really gets him interested is a T-shirt from Russia with the words, "Are you working for the GRU (Russian Military Intelligence)? In the next scene, Donald lies in bed and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump , goes to the bedroom with the same T-shirt.
"Melania, you're from over there somewhere. What does this T-shirt say? "Ask the actor who represents Donald to his wife."
"Yes, Donald, it's called 'Make America Great Again,' What else?" Replies the actress who plays Melania Trump, who is from Slovenia -Not Russia.  Jim Watson / AFP / Getty Images
The Christmas message that amused the president was released when a special adviser in Washington examined whether members of the Trump campaign had worked with the Russian government to support the outcome of the 2016 presidential election The ongoing investigation led to a guilty verdict from Trump's campaign manager and four other advisers
Dozens of Russians were also charged with their efforts to influence the elections.
Meanwhile, Trump's longtime lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to lied to Congress about efforts to open a Trump Tower in Moscow. Meanwhile, on December 13, Russian citizen Maria Butina pleaded for a conspiracy as a Russian government agent without notifying the Attorney General. It is not believed to be related to Russian military intelligence.
However, US intelligence is unanimous that the Russian government has tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, and researchers have recently discovered that Russian trolls use every available social media platform.
