Krauthammer slams ‘adolescent’ Obama for ridiculous timing of Russian sanctions, and he’s not alone

President Obama is finally getting tough on Vladimir Putin (kinda-sorta), but what took so long?

That’s what many on Twitter are wondering in response to Obama’s 11th-hour decision to retaliate against Russia amid concerns Russian hackers may have interfered with the U.S. presidential election.

While the Obama Administration has still not presented any concrete evidence supporting its claim that Russian cyber attacks influenced the election, Obama abruptly decided to eject 35 Russian intelligence operatives from the United States, close two alleged Russian spy nests and impose other sanctions.

While most people agree that Russia should be punished if, in fact, they did interfere with a U.S. election, many wondered why Obama waited until 3 weeks before his presidency ends to act.

Critics also pointed out that Obama did nothing when Russia committed far graver offenses, such as invading Crimea.

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer unloaded on Obama with a one-two punch, calling the timing of the sanctions “ridiculous” and his actions “adolescent.”

Still others pointed out that the United States has suffered more egregious cyber attacks, and that Obama only decided to sanction Russia now because he’s unhappy that Hillary Clinton lost.

Many speculate that if Clinton had won, Obama would have done nothing.

The Russian Embassy in the U.K. trolled Obama in a hilarious tweet and posted a photo of a “lame duck” along with its epic Trumpian smack-down.

In response to Obama’s ejection of Russian diplomats, Putin said he won’t return the favor because he wants to cultivate a good relationship with the incoming Trump Administration.

Putin won the day, as Trump and other observers praised his diplomacy and generosity when he could’ve been petty and whiny like Obama.
