Well this will certainly brighten your day. The liberal progressive fact-checking
geniuses hacks at Time magazine gleefully plastered the cover of their magazine with an image showing the red blood of Russian communism slowly taking over the White House.

Of course there’s just one problem with the image.
That’s not the Kremlin.
Actually, it’s St. Basil’s cathedral, built from 1555–61 on orders from Ivan the Terrible to commemorate the capture of Kazan and Astrakhan. According to Wikipedia (so it must be true), the building is shaped as a flame of a bonfire rising into the sky. Dmitry Shvidkovsky, in his book Russian Architecture and the West, states that “it is like no other Russian building. Nothing similar can be found in the entire millennium of Byzantine tradition from the fifth to fifteenth century … a strangeness that astonishes by its unexpectedness, complexity and dazzling interleaving of the manifold details of its design.”
As part of the program of state atheism, the church was confiscated from the Russian Orthodox community as part of the Soviet Union’s anti-theist campaigns and has operated as a division of the State Historical Museum since 1928.It was completely and forcefully secularized in 1929 and remains a federal property of the Russian Federation. The church has been part of the Moscow Kremlin and Red Square UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990.It is not actually within the Kremlin, but often (inaccurately) served as a visual metonym for Russia in western media.
You don’t say?
Here’s St. Basil’s.
And here’s the Kremlin.
Yes, Russia is covertly, inch by inch taking over the White House and “Murica” with the enthusiastic support of Donald J. Trump. Riiiight.
Never mind that there’s not a shred of evidence to demonstrate any collusion. Never mind that Vladimir Putin says it’s all BS. Never mind that Russian officials have said relations with the U.S. are at an all-time low. No, none of that matters because the left will do anything, by any means necessary to destroy Donald Trump and his presidency.
Meanwhile NOTHING is getting done in Congress. We still have Obamacare. We still have a horrible tax system. There’s still waste, fraud and abuse. There are still scores of positions to be filled in the administration, and the swamp is still filled with unelected Obama holdovers in the “Deep State” who are doing their best to keep the leaks, innuendo and rumors coming.
