People are going to go ballistic.
The Russian government announced an anything-goes “name-that-weapon” contest following President Vladimir Putin’s Cold War-era like unveiling of a range of new nukes Thursday.
Putin launched a stark warning during a press conference in Moscow, blasting the rest of the world for not listening to “us.”
“You listen to us now,” Putin proclaimed, as he showed off three new missiles, one of which he claimed is “absolutely” undetectable to “any missile defense system.”

Following the ominous announcement which featured a video simulation of a ballistic attack on Florida the Russian embassy in Washington, D.C.,pumped out a naming “contest” for the Kremlin’s “new global-range” cruise missiles.
“Take part in Vladimir Putin announced name-that-weapon contest,” the embassy said in a grammatically questionable tweet that linked to a voting website.
The website had seemingly crashed because of traffic overload when a Daily News reporter attempted to access it Thursday afternoon. But the site eventually came back up and features pictures, brief video clips and a separate module for voting, which anyone with internet access can ostensibly use. There aren’t any voting restrictions so anyone can suggest any type of name for the missiles.
A crafty Twitter user named Mary Burge immediately went to work, casting a vote for the orange-tinged underwater missile.

“The Trump,” Burge offered. “It’s orange, it belongs to you, and it destroys everything it comes in contact with.”
