President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, decided to settle their recent crossroads over the Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election in a classic battle of rock, paper, scissors. Prior to the event, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement saying, “President Trump is honored and thrilled to engage in this battle. Although most of his advisors suggested a direct military strike, the president saw this as a huuuuuge step toward a more peaceful relationship with Russia.” The battle ended with Putin winning with a final scissors move to surpass Trump’s paper and the discussion behind what all this actually means has begun. Many foreign delegates and leaders gathered to witness the historical battle between the two global superpowers. General Secretary Xi Jinping, of China was surprisingly in attendance and seemed very thrilled after Putin’s victory. The Official Falsified Media Council of the U.S. (OFMCUS) released several articles suggesting that Jinping had been endorsing Putin’s training and flying out the top Rock, Paper, Scissors coaches in the world. Although there has yet to be any actual reports of aftermath of the battle, OFMCUS has reported that Russia now officially owns all U.S. centered goods like bourbon, Ford cars, Kraft Mac N’ Cheese and the state of Alaska.
However, the battle did not end in the toddler-esque fit most viewers expected, but rather in a long and sincere hug between the opponents. Trump and Putin seemed to genuinely cradle each other as they whispered in each other’s ears. Before the two parted, they held each other at a distance, gazing into each other’s eyes with a sense of overall agreement. Both neglected to comment following the match and there has yet to be any concrete speculation over what Putin’s victory will mean for the future of the U.S. In reaction to the battle, former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin released a statement saying, “Years ago, I verbalized now one of the most commonly referred to political jokes in saying ‘I can see Russia from my house.’ I now proudly stand by myself because soon, Alaska will be part of Russia! Jokes on you world, Palin for President 2020.”
In a turn of events, many celebrities have reached out on social media in support of the nonviolent battle. Most remarkably, Kanye West and Taylor Swift retweeted Trump’s post battle tweet: “I just want to take a moment to congratulate my country’s new friend, President Putin, on his courageous performance. I also want to congratulate myself for being amazing. Everyone is the best, but America is first. If you disagree with me, you are a loser and I vote you off the island.” The rival celebrities seem to have buried the hatchet in order to advocate for solving disputes through childish games of luck.
Overall, no one is entirely sure where this newfound connection will take us, but many have said that it could either be incredibly beneficial or severely detrimental. Only time will allow history to be written.
