During Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough slammed Republican “buffoons” for giving “aid and comfort to Russia” by attacking President Joe Biden while he visited Kyiv in a show of support for Ukraine.
The “Morning Joe” host said the comments from comments GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs and others echoed Kremlin propaganda.
“As we talk about this, it is so clear that this is a battle between a western democracy and Russian and Chinese autocracy. While you have the majority of Republicans in the Senate supporting the president and western democracy, you had some buffoons yesterday on Capitol Hill say some absolutely remarkable things that I have no doubt [Russian state media program Russia Today] will be playing for the next few weeks, Russian television will be playing it for the next couple weeks,” Scarborough said.
“They hate the American president so much that they’re willing to provide aid and comfort to the Russian cause,” he added.
“It really — you know, one of Kevin McCarthy’s closest associates talked about a civil war, talked about secession. Others openly, openly just contemptuous of Ukraine and the efforts there. They were saying, doesn’t matter to us. A guy who wants to be president of the United States actually going on television yesterday saying Russia doesn’t pose any threat to its neighbors,” Scarborough said.
