One year ago, during a rally, President Trump told a crowd of supporters that Sen. Maxine Waters is a “low IQ individual.” About 18 months later, it appears Waters has proven the president right.
On Thursday, infamous Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov (Vovan) and Alexey Stolyarov (Lexus) released an audio recording (link at bottom) of the allegedly “low IQ” House Financial Services Committee chair seemingly falling hook, line, and sinker for one of their shenanigans.
The BPR reported that just like House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff, who last year was tricked by the duo into believing he was talking with the speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, Waters willingly and unknowingly walked right into their trap.
The prank involved convincing Waters that she is acctually speaking to young climate change activist Greta Thunberg and her father. Stunningly, literally no work was required, as the congresswoman was quick to accept the premise without question.
“The conversation began with ‘Thunberg’ telling Waters that she was calling from a climate strike meeting in North Carolina where they were advocating for the protection of the fictitious ‘Chon-Go-Chango’ islands,” Fox News notes.
The fictional Thunberg then convinced the congresswoman that she had met with President Trump during the United Nations General Assembly, despite it already being known for a fact that the two never actually met.
“It was a really terrible meeting in the U.N. building in September with him,” the fictional Thunberg claimed. “And I had nightmares afterward. It’s terrible.”
“I saw him in the hallway. He was with security and I shouted at him, ‘Sign the Paris Climate Agreement again!’ He came over, he leaned in towards me, and said softly, ‘Listen carefully to me, little girl. You will never achieve your goal, like the congressional goal, trying to accuse me.’”
Maxine Waters seemingly believed this to be true.
“He said you will never achieve your goal? Oh my goodness!” she replied with shock. “Did you ask him if he would rethink signing the Paris Climate Agreement? Is that your question to him?”
The fictional Thunberg then claimed, hilariously enough, that for whatever reason, the president then confessed to her — a then-16-year-old child — that he had tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky into investigating 2020 U.S. presidential election contender former Vice President Joe Biden.
“He added that … ‘You know what? I’ll tell you the truth. I really wanted to push the Ukraine president to put my competitor on trial,’” she said.
Her father then filled in the rest of the completely fictional details.
“He said to her, ‘You know, little girl, nobody will believe you anyway, I will tell you the truth. I really pushed on Ukrainian president and you know that you will never achieve your goals like those congressional fools who accuse me,’” he alleged. “‘So nobody will believe you. You will be on trial like my competitor.’”
“Oh, my God, he mentioned Ukrainian president!?” Waters asked in excitement.
“Yes, he said that,” the prankster replied. “And he added, ‘Nobody will believe you anyway.’”
