A crowd of Russian and foreign clubbers watched as Willi Tokarev, a famed Russian-American singer-songwriter, performed his new song, “Trumplissimo America!”
"Trump, Trump -- it is unbelievable. Trump, Trump, he's a superman, Trump, Trump -- symbol of America. Trump, Trump, he's really president," Tokarev sang.
Tokarev told ABC News he composed the song and wrote the lyrics after he says he was asked to by mutual friends whom he shares with Trump. “You cannot imagine how much people love Trump, both in the States and here,” Tokarev said.
Well actually mostly just there, not so much in the States.
And BOY do they love him in Russia!
The cult of Trump is growing across Russia.
The tiny town of Tula, about 120 miles outside of Moscow, appears especially taken with Trumpmania. There, a guesthouse has been named for the incoming American president and features a restaurant with a Trump-centered menu. There's even a Trump band, which performed last night at Arbat 13 in Moscow.
Also in Tula, you can find Trump-branded sugar cubes. There’s talk of presenting them to the new U.S. president to “sweeten our relations with the United States," according to Sergei Selaev, the general manager of Tula Produkt, the plant that manufactures them.
“We will probably send it to Trump after today’s inauguration, when he is the commander-in-chief,” Selaev said. There is a growing demand for their limited-edition Trump sugar cubes from all over Russia but also from abroad, he added.
Across from the U.S. embassy in downtown Moscow, the official Russian Army supply store put up a poster with Trump's picture, offering Inauguration Day discounts of 10 percent to all American citizens and U.S. embassy employees.
Well that's pretty over the top, don't you think?
I mean it's almost like Russia won the presidency of the united States.
And I guess in a way, they did.
