It's written all over him!
John Bolton, who has dedicated his life to getting Iran - a Russian ally - bombed, has revealed himself as a Kremlin agent after shaking Putin's hand in Moscow, according to Russiagate's most levelheaded disciples.

The US National Security Advisor met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday, laying the groundwork for a meeting between Putin and Trump.

The arch-hawk has accused Russia of aligning with Iran, "the world's most important financier of terrorism," and throwing its weight behind an "axis of evil." But Bolton's decision to meet with Putin can mean only one thing, according to celebrated connoisseurs of baseless Russiagate conspiracies: John Bolton has been compromised.

Neocon stenographer Michael Weiss has led the charge, hinting that Bolton's presence in Moscow suggests that the Russians probably have a video of him getting urinated on by a prostitute.

Comment: "Boltongate?" As one gate closes, another opens...

The Donald is Divine: Trump is worshiped as a god in Indian village

Trump worship
A video has surfaced of U.S. President Donald Trump being worshiped as a deity by a group of Indians. That may be a form of praise even The Don himself wouldn't approve of, and moreover, there was little reason given as to why these Hindus are convinced that The Donald is Divine.

Trump supporters in the U.S. may have very strong and vocal reasons for why they support their President, but it's uncertain why Indians have a reason to worship him, nor has Donald Trump seemed to comment on his new worshipers.

It is worth noting this was not the first time that a world leader was recently worshiped as a God.

Washington - Shortly after the United States Supreme Court upheld Donald J. Trump's controversial travel ban, millions of people from other countries expressed puzzlement that anyone would want to travel to the United States at this juncture.

In interviews with people from around the world, respondents said that the travel ban struck them as unnecessary, because the United States was not currently on the list of the top hundred countries to which they would consider travelling.

An incredible video of a man apparently rescuing his friend from an approaching crocodile has been doing the rounds online, with many stunned viewers commending him for his bravery. However, all is not as it seems.

Social media users are sharing a video of a man in a what looks like a river, desperately trying to swim away from a pursuing croc as his friend looks on from the riverbank.

The friend tries to throw rocks to stop the sharp-toothed predator from reaching his pal, but fails to drive the animal away. In the end, he leaps into the water just in time to frighten the animal and help his friend escape to dry land.

The crocodile rescue might look extremely brave, but it's really just an elaborate practical joke, as revealed in a Youtube video by prankster Jay Karl.

Addressing White House reporters yesterday the reality TV star proclaimed, "The Space Force will provide a whole new level of defence for America, and to a lesser extent the other countries on our planet, and will lay down the space law so other species know not to mess with us.

"Especially the Space Mexicans. They're the worst. Terrible aliens, terrible. It's never the good ones that want to come here."

He added,"I think we will build a giant spherical space station, which will look at first glance like a moon, but trust me - it's no moon.

Reddit user pokes major hole in Flat Earth 'logic' with a camera and a basketball

A Reddit user has poked major holes in flat-Earther 'logic' with a clever - and easy-to-replicate - experiment deploying a digital camera with a macro lens, plenty of light... and a basketball.

Posted on Reddit by user Useless Pickles as 'Proof that a basketball is flat', the detailed experiment depicts the object as flat-surfaced and not the round ball we all believe it to be.

He played around with perspective and close-ups to make his point. "Upon taking a closer look with a macro lens, I can only conclude that the surface of a basketball, while bumpy, does not appear to have any curvature. Therefore, basketballs are flat. Their roundness must be some kind of illusion caused by perspective and mirages," Useless Pickles wrote sarcastically.

Passengers onboard a plane landing in Florida were reportedly delayed by a plucky alligator, who was spotted crossing the tarmac at Orlando International Airport.

The bizarre close encounter happened on Monday, according to one passenger, who explained how a Spirit Airlines aircraft, flying in from Washington DC, was "held up" because of the wandering reptile.

"Only in Florida... a gator held up our plane crossing the runway on the way home from DC. Just another adventure," Anthony Velardi posted on Facebook.

According to Orlando's News 6, the alligator was eventually coaxed into a local pond and the airplane made it safely to the gate.
