Earlier today, outgoing President Obama announced sanctions against Russia for their cyberattacks. Inquiring minds were left wondering: How would President-elect Trump respond?

This afternoon, they got their answer:

Oh.

All due respect to the POTUS-elect, but Russian cyber warfare doesn’t really seem like the kind of thing you should “move on” from.

Also, why wait until next week? Not exactly the most forceful response considering who we’re dealing with, is it?

President Obama’s two terms have been plagued by bad optics. President-elect Trump might want to think about how to avoid a similar fate.
