An article

"You have made quite a big, big, big, big thunder on this issue. I am really, really very proud of you and the work that you're doing," Waters is heard saying.

As it was done by russian trolls they are very upset because it makes US representatives look foolish.

The reported words do not seem out of place as an expression of admiration on Water's part. Presumably the call then went the usual way of conversations with trolls - a gradual ramping up of weirdness and inappropriateness until we have the pseudo-Thunberg saying she would like to have hot lesbian sex with an elderly black lady (or whatever), the game being to see how long the politician will hang on before their troll alarm sounds and they hang up.

I suppose a politician could avoid this by always insisting on calling back any supposedly well-known caller who is not on a previously known number. But given all the time (and time is money) that the politician's PA would have to spend making sure they had the genuine number for the supposed caller, and given the risk of offending a real caller of importance, most politician's are likely to take the risk that they are on to a low-budget time waster like the russians in question.

What else do you think they should do? It seems to me that, under the circumstances Waters was probably right to take the risk and talk. How was that foolish? (Please be sure you have read my entire post before you answer that question.)

I assume these same Russian hackers will be part of both the Trump and McConnell re-election teams.

No, I've already hired them to serve on the House Intelligence committee as experts on impeachment.

Well, given Trump's record of obvious reluctance to criticise Putin, the Russians would have to be stupid to refrain from using any means open to them to support Trump's re-election.

And the Russians who decide such matters do not appear to be very stupid, do they? So I'd expect them to do their best to back Trump and McConnell all the way.

I mean, why wouldn't they?
