Steven Seagal pushes Kremlin propaganda during Ukraine visit

Hollywood star Steven Seagal pushed Kremlin propaganda on a trip this week to the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine, claiming that US-supplied HIMARS rockets caused the blast last month that killed more than 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war.

Steven Seagal appears in Ukraine, serving as a Russian spokesperson

Early reports from the Russian invasion of Ukraine suggested that President Vladimir Putin’s military had deployed, of all people, actor Steven Seagal alongside its troops.

If You’ve Never Seen Steven Seagal Hosting The Worst Episode Of ‘SNL,’ Now’s Your Chance

SNL is approaching 1,000 episodes, and while there’s no consensus on the best episode among the 927 (as of this weekend), there is a universal agreement for the worst. On April 20, 1991, Steven Seagal hosted (with musical guest Michael Bolton!) with a performance so “listless and riddled with mistakes,” as Rolling Stone described it, that some wondered “if he might just quit, mid-episode.” Then-SNL writer Bob Odenkirk called it a “nightmare” working with the Putin-loving actor, who cast member David Space said “didn’t want to go along with what the plan was that week… I think that was the first week that I heard talk about replacing the host and just doing a cast show.”
