Meteor ‘Truther’ Jose Canseco Says Russian Explosion Was Secret Weapon

Remember the meteor that buzzed over Russia yesterday, blew up, and injured hundreds? That was no meteor, according to former baseball-er Jose Canseco, who suspects a government cover-up of some kind.

The former Major League Baseball player took to Twitter yesterday regarding the surprise Russian meteor explosion, and said he’s not buying the government line about what went down.

“No way that was a meteor in Russia today,” Canseco tweeted.

Mediaite is calling Canseco a “meteor truther” over his tweets, probably because he does indeed sound like some kind of tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy nut.

There are hundreds of videos of the Russian meteor explosion, and just shy of 1,000 individuals injured. The devastation is also evident, with structural damage stretching over miles. The Russian meteor did quite a number all on its own.

But let’s go easy on Canseco, because he’s hardly the only “meteor truther” out there right now, notes Press TV.

Russia’s controversial Liberal leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a member of Russian parliament, also believes that the meteor was a weapon of some kind, specifically a piece of US experimental tech.

Others think it is a warning from God.

Canseco thinks it’s North Korea’s fault.

Especially conspiracy-flavored was Canseco’s final tweet on the matter:

What do you think? Was the Russian meteor a secret weapon test? Are you a “meteor truther” like Jose Canseco?
