Jimmy Fallon's jokes on Putin at Golden Globes

The "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon at the 74th Golden Globe Awards gestured toward the ongoing controversy surrounding Russia's apparent hacking of Democratic officials during the campaign to aid the US President elect Donald Trump.

When introducing the accounting company that tabulates the Golden Globes votes, Fallon inserted Russia's president into the group, referring to it as "the firm of Ernst & Young & Putin."

New comic memes have taken social media by storm. The memes jokingly blame Russians for literally everything. The authors of these memes publish funny images of cats, messy homes, speed tickets and add the hashtag #RussianHack and #russiadidit, Sputnik reports.

The memes shift the blame for everyday shortcomings with Vladimir Putin being behind “speed tickets” and “ruined Christmas.” The memes are mercilessly trolling the CIA who jumps to pointing fingers at Russia without any proof.
