Not so fast, there. The #SanctionedByPutin hashtag is taking off after all, and the Wall Street Journal has even declared those who have been sanctioned members of “the hottest club in D.C.” Who in Washington is cool enough to be a member of this exclusive club?
Also sanctioned were National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Adviser Caroline Atkinson, and White House aide Daniel Pfeiffer. If you’re not on that list, you weren’t sanctioned. Sorry.
