Donald Trump isn’t the only Republican who admired Vladimir Putin. A number of GOP senators were in Russia on the 4th of July of 2018.And while much of America is supporting Ukraine in their conflict with Russia, not all Americans are. A video recently surfaced of Madison Cawthorn calling Volodmyr Zelenskyy a thug. And during his Thursday show, Steve Bannon praised Tucker Carlson’s constant fawning over Putin and slammed Zelenskyy.
The former Trump adviser began. “I want to give a hat tip to Tucker Carlson. In the fog of war, Tucker every night is an opportunity over at stupid TV, because the rest of it is just the warmonger neocon. They’re as bad or worse than MSNBC, because MSNBC and CNN, you know you’re just getting right up in your face, right up in your grill.”
Bannon continued: “I want to ask, you know, the world, how quickly is the world, a rational people going to have a bellyfull of Zelensky? And he’s the hero, he’s given the Churchill speech and everything like that. Sorry. You must close the sky, the world, you have done nothing. This is not – this is beyond goading us into this. This is absolutely guilt-tripping you. It’s your fault. I told you he was going to get to that point. You have done nothing. You will only make it worse. Millions are going to die and you’re eventually going to close the sky.”
