The “Russia meddled in our election” story has just descended into the comically absurd: CNN reports that last year, Russian actors posed as Black Lives Matter activists and promoted a Pokemon Go game in which players had to go to sites of police brutality and try to use their phones to capture Pokemons named after alleged victims such as Eric Garner.
It’s not clear what the point of this game was, other than maybe to promote racial tensions. There’s no evidence that anyone ever played it. Nevertheless, I expect Hillary Clinton to get around to blaming her loss on Pikachu any day now.
Pokemon, Go! And take this stupid, never-ending story with you!
