The Russian Foreign Ministry said Saturday that it has appointed American actor Steven Seagal as a “special representative” for Russian-American humanitarian relations.
“The task is to promote the further development of Russian-American relations in the humanitarian sphere, including interaction in the field of culture, art, public and youth exchanges and more,” the ministry said on its official Facebook page, according to a CNN translation of the post.
The ministry also said the position is comparable to that of a United Nations goodwill ambassador.
Seagal became a Russian citizen in 2016. He is reportedly close with Russian President Vladimir Putin and attended his swearing-in ceremony in May.
Oh, yeas Segal should be perfect for the job because much like Trump he has also been accused of sexual harassment:
A spokesperson for the LAPD told CBS News that the incident allegedly occurred in 2005. No other details of the case have been made public.
Several women, including actresses Portia de Rossi, Julianna Margulies and Rae Dawn Chong, have recently accused Seagal of sexual harassment. In a November tweet, de Rossi claimed Seagal “unzipped his leather pants” during an audition in the actor’s office. Margulies said Seagal had attempted to sexually harass her in his apartment when she was 23, and Chong accused Seagal of once showing her “his junk” in his hotel room and leaving her multiple “sex messages” on her machine.
A woman named Regina Simons, who worked as an extra on the 1994 film “On Deadly Ground,” which starred Seagal, told The Wrap this month that the actor raped her at his home.
What a humanitarian, right?
Segal has also been banned from entering Ukraine, who referred to him as a “national security threat.”
I’m not sure this is relevant but Seagal also once drove a tank into a hen house during his stint as a reality star which resulted in the death of 115 innocent chickens.
Well, I guess Seagal and Trump can get together and bump monstrous bellies while talking about how much they adore Vladimir Putin.
There is literally no bottom to this rabbit hole is there?
