Smirnoff Vodka has taken trolling to a whole new level in an ad mocking the alleged Trump-Russia controversy.Former FBI Director James Comey testified in a hearing last week that President Trump was not personally under investigation for collusion with Russia, totally destroying the MSM narrative that many leftists had hoped would lead to the destruction of the current administration.
Trump made a comment via Twitter last week that became the subject of Smirnoff’s latest campaign and it’s definitely getting a whole lot of attention.According to the Washington Examiner:
In a billboard spotted in the U.S., the vodka company touts that it’s “made in America.”
“But we’d be happy to talk about our ties to Russia under oath,” the ad quips, referencing Trump, who said Friday that he would “100 percent” be willing to testify under oath about the Russia investigation.

The president continues to claim that he never asked Comey for his “loyalty,” something the former FBI Director claimed, along with an alleged request to stop investigating Mike Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser.Trump may get an opportunity to tell his side of the story to the Senate as Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is inviting him to testify.
The bottom line is that the media desperately wants to destroy the president, to see him fall and removed from office, as has been made clear by various comments from Democratic leaders across the country.
This whole Russian connection — which is nothing more than a fairy tale — was their first attempt at taking down this administration and it’s backfiring in a huge way.However, it doesn’t appear the left will simply call it quits and accept they’ve been defeated. Nope, they’ll just create a new narrative and find something else to harp on, while hoping something sticks.
This is precisely why the president and his administration need to be on guard and ready for anything, because this battle is just getting started.
