On Wednesday, Tucker Carlson reportedly blasted Congress for “fawning” over Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the president of Ukraine, as the southern border of the United States crumbles.
Prior to his Wednesday night speech to Congress, Zelenskyy met with President Joe Biden in the White House, according to the Washington Times.
Zelenskyy referred to the assistance provided to Ukraine during his speech to Congress as a “investment” in safeguarding democracy worldwide.
“Somehow we were reminded of it today when the president of Ukraine arrived at the White House, dressed like the manager of a strip club and started to demand money. Amazingly, no one threw him out. Instead, they did whatever he wanted. American taxpayers declare Joe Biden will continue to give Zelenskyy whatever he demands for, quote, “as long as it takes.” Carlson jabbed
“As the American border collapses completely, our Congress turns its fawning attention to the Ukraine and the man our congress has been funding with the tax dollars to prosecute a war whose consequences can be more profound than most Americans understand,” he continued.
According to official statistics, more than 2.3 million migrants were apprehended by United States Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) in Fiscal Year 2022, including another 230,000 in October, the first month of the new fiscal year, while another 600,000 migrants managed to elude CBP.
The implementation of Title 42, a Trump administration public health policy, is now being debated by the Supreme Court after a judgment by U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan that would have terminated its use on Wednesday was postponed.
On February 24, Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine years after the Russian friendly Ukrainian government was overthrown in 2014 with the backing of the United States.
In addition to prohibiting United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) from spending more than $1.5 billion on new equipment, Congress provided $45 billion in aid to Ukraine as part of a $1.7 trillion omnibus budget plan.
“Tellingly Biden never specified what it is, as long as it is to do what? Push the Russian army back to pre-invasion borders? Sounds reasonable. That’s what most Americans likely assume, those who are still paying attention. But that is not what Zelensky means, and it is not what he’s asking for,” Carlson continued.
“Zelensky is demanding regime change in Russia, just like in Iraq and Libya and a long list of other failed states, except this time in the heart of the Eurasian landmass, next door to the entire civilized world. That’s what Zelensky has called for repeatedly and every dollar we send to him goes toward that end. At this point, he’s getting a lot closer to achieving it, so what happens if he ‘wins?’ What does the ensuing chaos look like? Thought about that?” he added.
