Marjorie Taylor Greene Thinks Ukraine Situation Can’t Be “So Grave” If Senators Visited

Marjorie Taylor Greene has made it clear she doesn’t like that the United States is supporting Ukraine amidst the invasion by Russia. She’s said many times that she believes the U.S. government should be focusing only on the American people. However, she also is very quick to buy into conspiracy theories.

KYIV, UKRAINE – APRIL 30: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky presents the Order of Princess Olga, a Ukrainian civil decoration, to U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi during a visit by a U.S. congressional delegation on April 30, 2022 in Kyiv, Ukraine.

One pervasive element of Russian propaganda regarding the invasion of Ukraine is, of course, to downplay the destruction and devastation. Greene seems to think that she’s found evidence to support this notion, and that despite being very public, it somehow evaded everyone else’s notice.

According to her, since U.S. elected officials traveled to Ukraine and met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, things can’t really be that dire.

Greene is among the Republicans who have argued against aide packages that would help Ukraine defend itself, but that group remains a vocal minority. Most of the U.S. government is in bipartisan agreement to give support, and in fact, a Republican group — Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Susan Collins (R-ME), John Barrasso (R-WY) and John Cornyn (R-TX) — made a surprise trip, as the Washington Post reports.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has also been to Ukraine, as have others from the U.S. and other nations.

To Greene, this seems to prove the safety of Ukraine — even as the fatalities continue to rise in the country, with Al Jazeera reporting that UN officials say the real death toll is “thousands higher” than the official count — which is itself over three thousand at this point.

Does Greene know that visits to war zones, in fact, even by presidents, are a normal occurrence?
