On Tuesday, Russia slapped personal sanctions on a number of high profile Americans, including failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and President Joe Biden, as well as his scandal-ridden son, Hunter.

According to The Washington Examiner:
President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, White House press secretary Jen Psaki, and others were among the 13 people added to Russia’s “stop list” as the U.S. continues sanctioning Russia and some individual Russians over the country’s decision to invade Ukraine, TASS, a Russian news agency, reported Tuesday.
Clinton, who has been critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin, celebrated the rebuke.
“I want to thank the Russian Academy for this Lifetime Achievement Award,” the former secretary of state wrote.
The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the measure was taken in response to “a series of unprecedented sanctions prohibiting, among other things, entry into the United States for top officials of the Russian Federation,” according to the outlet.
