Ideen opstod efter påstande fra CIA om, at Rusland var involveret i hacker-angreb på DNC
I kølvandet på CIA's påstand om russisk involvering i den amerikanske præsidentkampagne, bruger internetbrugere nu #Russianhack til at tørre skylden for hverdagsproblemer af på Vladimir Putin, der nu er blevet syndebuk for alt lige fra fartoverskridelser til en ruineret jul.

Efter at have hånet CIA's påstand om, at Rusland var bag hacker-angrebet på emails fra det demokratiske partis nationale kongress (DNC) og Hillary Clintons medarbejderleder (chief of staff), John Podesta, har internettet ikke været flinke efter de ubeviste påstande.




"It's not my fault officer. The Russians hacked my speedometer," one meme reads, along with an image of a woman being ticketed by a police officer. It seems all but Harambe's death has been blamed on Russia... but surely that's only a matter of time.




Doubt has been thrown on the authenticity of the assessment, with the the office overseeing all 17 agencies of the US intelligence community, the ODNI, reportedly saying the CIA can't prove its claims.




The MSM's coverage has also been lampooned with a note, seemingly penned by a child, claiming to be from Putin, taking responsibility for the hack retweeted thousands of times.




Donna Brazile, the interim chairperson of the DNC, was shown no mercy after it was exposed in WikiLeaks' Podesta emails that she gave debate questions to Hillary Clinton's campaign when she was a CNN contributor.




Of course, no news story would be complete without a Seinfeld-inspired meme and #RussianHack is no different.
