@LadaTweets Putin banner mysteriously appears on Manhattan Bridge, hehe.
(Thanks to Akaida for the heads up.) I agree, very funny.
This bit is from nypost.com – go to link to see the video:
“A giant poster of Russian President Vladimir Putin was draped along the side of the Manhattan Bridge on Thursday afternoon. The massive banner featured the Russian leader in a suit and tie against the backdrop of the country’s flag along with the word “peacemaker” emblazoned at the bottom. At least two people unfurled the politically driven banner around 1:45 p.m., witnesses said.
“We were just at our desks, we have some large windows from our office and we just saw it going up,” Quinn Formel, 27, whose office building in Dumbo faces the Manhattan Bridge, told The Post.
“These two guys … they were struggling for a little bit, but eventually got it [the banner] up,” he said.
Formel added, “We realized it was Putin and it was the Russian flag and it said ‘peacemaker’ and then after that we were all confused about what this is supposed to be saying or expressing — it’s not very clear.””
On the contrary, I think the message is abundantly clear.
Putin the Peacemaker banner on Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn, New York:
From the same nypost.com post:
“Kathryn Peters tweeted a photo of the flag with the caption, “The Manhattan bridge, right now. (Vladimir Putin, peacemaker???)” Another Twitter user wrote, “This just dropped on the Manhattan Bridge. Living in some weird and scary times,” with a photo.
The NYPD received a 911 call about the approximately 20-by-30-foot banner hanging above Adams Street and John Street in Brooklyn around 2:30 p.m., a police spokesman said. Responding police officers removed the flag around 2:55 p.m.”
Hurrah! The #PutinBanner threat has been averted! Again all’s well in the good ol’ United States, and Americans can go back to sleep… or shopping, while their government screws the rest of the world and attempts to start WWIII.
An example of the latest US rhetoric: ‘We need to make Russians pay the price by killing them’: VIDEO.
Ah, wait! I saved the best for last! I can explain the mystery of why the #PutinBanner appeared in NYC on October 6, of all days. The thing is, Vladimir Putin’s birthday is on October 7. Born On October 7, 1952, he turns 64 in 2016. But in Russia October 7th begins when it’s still October 6th in NYC.
IT’S A HAPPY BIRTHDAY POSTCARD, PEOPLE!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. PRESIDENT!
What can I say, with all its vices, New York still has its moments! 😉
HEADS UP FOR ALL!
I am working on some major reports re: 1. Russia-US clash on Syria and Putin’s Ultimatum; 2. US Elections.
Stay tuned for the upcoming ANNOUNCEMENTS!
