We've written about this Russian strategy before. They do it all the time in the domestic media.
They just take the most outspoken Russia haters in the American media they can find, say a Rachel Maddow, or Bill Kristol, and present what they say verbatim, and all of Russia can see what a vile, ridiculous, hypocritical, lying mess America has become.
Here, they seem to have tried the same technique on Americans. The recipe is simple:
2. Retweet a lot.
3. Sit back and watch America descend into chaos.
I think it's time we admit that these Russian trolls are a lot sharper than we thought.
