The internet strikes again!

Hillary Clinton hasn’t pulled any punches when it comes to Russia this election cycle, often using the country as a punching bag and accusing it of being the source of her campaign’s leaked emails -- a charge that Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied.

The internet, however, has noticed the increasingly harsh rhetoric, and has responded in an oddly cleaver way.
