Trolling the President is big business now. Saturday Night Live’s TV ratings are absolutely dining off it. John Oliver is enjoying the same attention. And if you manage to be the first person to respond to one of his tweets with a sarky quip, well you can surf that RT wave for days.

Want to get a few more eyes on you? When in doubt, troll Donald Trump: you’re punching up, there’s a lot of material to work with, the job is a good ‘un.

Which is why Smirnoff’s latest advert is a work of simple brilliance. 

What with President Trump and his administration having… interesting connections to the Kremlin, the new American distilled, Russian inspired vodka had the perfect target for a playful jab.

Needless to say, the advert proved popular on social media. 

Even non vodka drinkers liked it...

Not to mention it getting props for riling up the MAGA crowd.

Right. Anyone for drinks?
