Hey, did you ever hear about the curse placed on Hillary Clinton by the mummy tomb she visited in the ‘90s, which has directly led to her epidemic of coughing fits and fainting spells? No? Well, clearly you weren’t watching Russia’s most popular news shows during the 2016 US Presidential campaign. Our New President is brilliantly assembled solely from Russian State TV and other Putin-led propaganda sources, which spread stories like that mummy curse across the globe with startling efficiencyand utter shamelessness. You may think you’ve seen the worst that “fake news” has to offer if you’ve ever clicked on a Breitbart link or—dear God—watched any Sean Hannity, but the outlandish fictions spread by Russian State TV about Trump and Clinton are truly beyond your wildest imaginations, and director Maxim Pozdorovkin's dive inside the Russian media's funhouse mirror of American politics is simply too important to miss.
