This will absolutely work, right?
“Russia has appointed the US actor Steven Seagal as a special envoy to improve ties with the United States.
Seagal was granted Russian citizenship in 2016 and has praised President Putin as a great world leader. (snip)
He is also one of the Hollywood stars accused by several women of sexual misconduct in the wake of the #MeToo campaign, which he has denied.
The Russian foreign ministry made the announcement on its official Facebook page, saying the unpaid position was similar to that of a United Nations’ goodwill ambassador and Seagal would promote US-Russia relations “in the humanitarian sphere”.
Of course those killjoy wags at Twitter had to go and dump on this good news…
I just, I mean, can I be the ambassador for lucky charms? Because that’s how much sense this makes.
