Elderly Obama, Kerry featured in bizarre Russian media video

Actors portraying an elderly President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are featured in a bizarre video released Thursday by the Kremlin-funded network RT. 

In the video, set in the year 2035 and released to mark the network’s 10th anniversary, the elderly Kerry wobbles up the front steps of a country-style home as a man portraying an elderly Obama waves from a rocking chair. 

{mosads}”So, what’s new?” the man portraying Obama, 74, asks, drawing out his words to mimic the president’s pronunciation.

“Got my new teeth,” the fictional Kerry responds with a pearly smile.  

“In the world, John,” the fake Obama interjects. 

“Oh, apart from the fact that no one is afraid of us anymore? There’s nothing new, sir,” he responds. 

The fake president, after co-opting Obama’s 2008 presidential slogan “yes we can,” then lumbers into a kitchen as a voice on a television updates the audience that “President of the United States Edward Snowden has announced a new era of transparency for the NSA.”

Snowden was granted temporary asylum in Russia after leaking information about the surveillance activities of the National Security Agency.
