Tucker Carlson Says Lindsey Graham’s ‘Personal Life’ Explains His Support For Ukraine

According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the reason Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is so eager to give more military aid to Ukraine as it continues to fight against a Russian invasion is because of the senator’s “personal life.”

Mediaite reports that Carlson made his comments on his show Thursday evening, seeming to suggest that Graham’s sexuality might be in question. The senator is 67 and has never been married, leading some to say that he’s a closeted homosexual.

“So, the other day Lindsey Graham came out–” Carlson began, taking a long pause “–the Republican from South Carolina, and said that he agreed with Joe Biden and Zelensky.

Carlson then played a clip of Graham remarking:

“How does this war end? When Russia breaks and they take Putin out. Anything short of that, the war’s gonna continue. To ask the Ukrainians to give Russia part of the country after all this death and destruction is not gonna happen. To signal a ceasefire, Russia will take the opportunity to rearm and come at them again. So, we’re in it to win it and the only way you’re gonna win it is to break the Russian military and have somebody in Russia take Putin out.”

That led Carlson to tell his viewers:

“So, it’s really hard to overstate how crazy this is. And you don’t want to play shrink and wonder about, you know, what emptiness at the core of Lindsey Graham’s personal life causes him to identify so strongly with a country he’s not a citizen of. Something’s going on there.”

According to Carlson, continuing to assist the Ukrainians will only lead to wider conflict, including a catastrophic war between the U.S. and Russia.

“What happens then?. Well, the world’s largest land mass falls into ungovernable chaos.”

Leave it to Fox News to try and slag a member of the GOP simply because they don’t like his foreign policy aims. What’s next? Will Carlson begin suggesting that Graham is a transsexual? With Fox, you just never know how low they’ll go.

Don Jr. Gets Slammed For Calling Ukrainian President Zelensky A ‘Welfare Queen’

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed a joint session of Congress on Wednesday, telling U.S. lawmakers that “Your money is not charity. It is an investment in the global security and democracy that we handle in the most responsible way.”

But despite the fact that Russia continues to attack Ukraine and kill innocent civilians, some Republicans have been critical of the U.S. commitment to our Ukrainian allies.

One of those is none other than the son of failed, one-term, twice-impeached loser ex-president Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., who called Zelensky a “welfare queen” for daring to seek more military aid from the U.S.

On Twitter, Don Jr. posted this hateful missive:

“Zelensky is basically an ungrateful international welfare queen.”

The “welfare queen” slur was coined by Ronald Reagan during his first run for the White House in the 1970s. It was a direct attack on antipoverty programs that began during the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson to help rectify the injustices that led to the civil rights movement.

While Don Jr. is certainly entitled to his opinion, no matter how ignorant his take on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, he’s not exactly the one to be throwing stones at others, as Twitter users quickly reminded him.

WATCH Hillary Clinton Fact-Check Chuck Todd When He Tries To Blame Biden For Ukraine

NBC News host Chuck Todd tried to blame President Joe Biden for not doing enough to effectively counter the actions of Russian mass murderer Vladimir Putin, but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quickly rebuffed him during an interview on Sunday.

Todd began with this:

“I want to pick up on — I know you were listening to the interview with Masha Gessen. I want to pick up on Masha’s last point there, which seemed to imply that no matter when we’ve confronted Putin, and I could go back really all the way to when he came into power, we’ve — it seems as if we’ve always come up a bit short. We’ve drawn a line not quite as far as others would like to draw, you — whether it was — you’ve made points of this about Syria. Perhaps we should have drawn a thicker line on what happened in Crimea. Why is that, and are you concerned we’re – we’re maybe holding back now a little too much?”

Clinton immediately countered the host:

“Well, no. Now I think we are really looking at this with our eyes wide open and seeing very clearly the threat that he poses not just to Ukraine, as we can watch every night on our news, but really to Europe, to democracy and the global stability that we thought we were building in the last 20 years. So, Chuck, I really agree with both what Secretary Blinken said, that we’ve got to continue to keep the pressure on Putin and the Russian troops. We cannot, in any way, pause our efforts to support the Ukrainians. And I agree with Masha that we have to double down. There is more that can be done to increase pressure and stress, additional sanctions, more in the way of lethal aid. And now that there has been a pushback thanks to the brave Ukrainian military offensive action, there is time to resupply the Ukrainians so that they can continue to defend their country.”

Todd then tried to misrepresent comments made by Secretary of State Antony Blinken:

“You heard Secretary Blinken essentially say, look, sanctions relief could happen. That all depends on the behavior of Russia. Can we really live in a world where Putin’s let back into the new world order?”

Once more, Clinton used facts to counter the absurd nature of what Todd had just said:

“Well, that’s not what I heard him say. What I heard him say was that, really, we are going to support the Ukrainians, the people and the government of Ukraine, as they try to figure out what for them is the best way forward, and that I think is exactly the right position for the United States, Europe and the West and other countries to take.”

Hillary Clinton is an expert on international relations and doesn’t take any shit from Vladimir Putin, which is one reason Putin worked so hard to make sure Trump won the 2016 election. It’s fun to watch her destroy Chuck Todd’s bogus talking points and make him look like a fool.

Donald Trump Russia Vladimir Putin WTF?!

Giuliani Claims Trump Told Putin He’d Blow Up Russian Churches If Russia Invaded Ukraine

It’s no wonder that failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump and his former attorney, Rudy Giuliani, became such close friends and confidants over the years. After all, they both lie almost as often as they breathe.

If you doubt that Giuliani can cook up as many bullshit tall tales as his former client, consider that Rudy just told Newsmax the Donald threatened to bomb Russian churches if President Vladimir Putin dared to invade Ukraine a year and a half ago.

According to Giuliani, right before he left office, Trump was speaking with Putin on the phone and made it clear there would be serious consequences if he made a move on Ukraine:

“He authorized me to say this, that’s why I’m saying it, because I’m his lawyer. So, he has a meeting with Putin and he tells him, they’re talking about Ukraine and he says, ‘Vladimir, you shouldn’t, like, attack Ukraine, cause then I’m gonna — well I never liked those — what are those things you’ve got in Moscow? Those big bubbles. Those big gold bubbles. I never liked those things. So, I’m going to have to blow them up.”

The big gold bubbles Trump allegedly threatened to blow up are the spires of the Kremlin, specifically the gold domes that are the tops of the Cathedral of the Annunciation, a Russian Orthodox church that was built in the 15th century.

Giuliani continued:

“So, Putin says, ‘They’re churches.’ And he said, ‘Oh, Vladimir. Don’t tell me that about churches. Oh, come on. Churches?'”

Does anyone other than the most rabid and fanatical MAGA morons believe a word of that? It’s impossible to accept that Trump ever confronted Putin about anything because Vlad allegedly has dirt on Donnie related to the ex-president’s odd sexual fetishes.

And yet now, with Russia killing thousands of Ukrainian civilians as Putin attempts to impose his will and realize his dream of being a modern-day czar, we’re supposed to accept at face value that Donald Trump said he’d bomb the Kremlin.

At times like this, it’s difficult to tell who is most full of shit: Trump, Giuliani, or their Russian master in the Kremlin.

Minutes After Zelensky’s Address To Congress, Trump Brags That He Nearly Destroyed NATO

Shortly after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed a joint session of Congress via satellite link on Wednesday morning, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump issued a statement in which he proudly bragged that he had threatened NATO with “no protection” while he was still in office.

The statement, which was posted to Twitter by the ex-president’s spokesperson, Liz Harrington (because he remains banned from the social media platform), reads:

“People forget so quickly with the help of Fake News that it was me that got the 20 out of 28 delinquent NATO countries to start paying the money that they owed in order to rebuild a floundering NATO. Nobody knew things would happen so rapidly but NATO was poor and now it is rich and all of the Fake News commentators that said Trump was tearing down NATO should be ashamed of themselves for telling lies.

“Bush and Obama did nothing but make speeches and talk. I acted, and acted strongly. I said to them, ‘if you don’t pay up, no protection.’ They all paid up, and quickly. It’s a story that’s never reported but only because we have a corrupt press in our Country!”

In other words, Trump is admitting that he extorted NATO the same way he did Ukraine when he said he would release military aid to the Ukrainians if they would agree to look for dirt on his 2020 opponent, Joe Biden.

Zelensky, it should be noted, was incredibly powerful and poignant in his speech to Congress, evoking the memory of Pearl Harbor and 9/11 as he pleaded for a no-fly zone over Ukraine:

“Remember Pearl Harbor, terrible morning of December 7, 1941, when your sky was black from the planes attacking you. Just remember it, remember, September the 11th, a terrible day in 2001 when evil tried to turn US cities into battlefields, when innocent people were attacked from air, just like nobody else expected it and you could not stop it. Our country experiences the same, every day, right now at this moment.”
