February 24 will be the first anniversary of Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine. It’ll be the first anniversary of Vladimir Putin bombing churches, hospitals, schools, apartments, playgrounds, and the civilian population of Ukraine. It will not be the first anniversary of Putin being a war criminal because he’s been doing that his entire life.
I’ve been expecting President Biden to pay a surprise visit to Ukraine which he did this morning, visiting the capital, Kyiv, and strolling outside with President Volodymir Zelenskyy while air sirens were blaring.
I think Russia’s war criminal of a president was hoping to visit Kyiv before President Biden, so this trip is an insult to him. But, he has support in the United States.
Matt Gaetz said, “When our border is in crisis, Joe Biden goes home to nap in Delaware. When Ohio burns with toxic chemicals, Biden’s admin says everything is fine. So on President’s Day, I’m not surprised that Biden is ditching America for Ukraine. He ditched America’s interests since the start of his presidency. They can keep him!”
Freshman Senator Eric Schmitt, tweeted, “If you want to understand why so many Americans are frustrated right now: Biden is in Ukraine before Ohio.”
Josh Hawley said, “No time to visit East Palestine, Ohio but plenty of time for this.”
Marjorie Taylor Greene tweeted, “This is incredibly insulting. Today on our President’s Day, Joe Biden, the President of the United States chose Ukraine over America, while forcing the American people to pay for Ukraine’s government and war. I can not express how much Americans hate Joe Biden.” Then she repeated calls to impeach President Biden without specifying any crimes he’s committed.
Senator Tommy Tuberville, who thinks the three branches of government are the House, Senate, and White House, tweeted, “#POTUS has now spent more time in Ukraine than he has at our southern border. @JoeBiden refuses to address the AMERICAN crisis that will impact generations and poses an immediate threat to our national security.”
Representative Scott Perry tweeted, “Breathtaking that President Biden can show up in Ukraine to ensure their border is secure, but can’t do the same for America.”
I can’t tell you what Ted Rall is tweeting about it because he blocked me several months ago for pointing out he works for Russia and has a permanent Putin boner, but I’m pretty sure he’s filling a diaper over it right about now.
Take note that each of these Republicans are goons for Putin. They were fine with Donald Trump kissing Putin’s ass and handing over classified information to the Russians. They were fine with Donald Trump praising Putin and calling him a “genius” for his invasion of Ukraine. Also take note that a few of these goons asked Trump for pardons for their involvement of his coup attempt.
Also, take note that President Biden has dispatched federal resources to East Palestine. For some reason, Republicans really want a photo-op.
We are supporting democracy over fascism with our support for Ukraine. President Biden’s visit is moral support to Ukraine and a slap in the face to Russia…and obviously, to Russia’s supporters here in the states. What will Tucker, “Why should I hate Putin?,” say tonight on his show?
The goons love to point out that Russia didn’t invade Ukraine while Trump was president (sic) as if Putin was afraid of how Trump would react. Ha. Yet, they’re upset we’re supporting Ukraine militarily. MTG even tweeted a lie this morning that Zelenskyy is commanding U.S. troops in Ukraine.
But the reason Russia didn’t invade Ukraine while Trump was president (sic) is that it didn’t have to. Invading Ukraine has given NATO renewed purpose and in fact, has increased the size of NATO by two more nations. Why would Putin have given NATO a renewed purpose while Trump was trying to destroy it?
President Biden bravely visited a war zone while cowardly Republicans are tweeting in the safety of their offices…all except Matt Gaetz. There’s no telling how many STDs have contaminated that office which is probably more toxic than East Palestine.
President Biden visits a war zone while air sirens are sounding. Donald Trump canceled a trip to a former war zone because the rain would mess up his hair. Apparently, bleached skunk carcasses don’t do well in humidity.
An American president is supposed to be able to multitask. He can direct aid to East Palestine, Ohio, and work on border issues while representing the United States on an international trip. He’s currently visiting Poland but none of these Republicans have mentioned that, just Ukraine which is very telling.
The thing about President Biden that upsets Republicans the most is that he’s a good president. He’s visiting a war zone while Donald Trump is golfing at his country club…unless it rains.
Take note: I did a cartoon on the one-year anniversary of Putin’s illegal invasion for CNN, which I’ll post here later.

Your description of the various Qthuglican traitors that you named is spot on. They are cowards as well as traitors, and deserve all the scorn we can heap on them. Keep up the great work!

Great work. Also enjoyed your YouTube rant on GOP sudden turn to outrage on Norfolk Southern’s train wreck – root cause deregulation and union busting. 35+ years ago my accounting job interview at Norfolk Southern was notable BAD. I was involved in Literacy Volunteers. HR guy told me they had employees that couldn’t read AND they liked things status quo. I walked out of that interview. Assholes

I don’t listen to anything mumbled by Matt Gaetz, Eric Schmitt, Josh Hawley, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Tommy Tuberville, Scott Perry, Ted Rall, Gym Jordan, Ron DeSantis, Marco Rubio, etc. I have heard all their anti-American, anti-Constitution, pro-Putin bullshit before.
Biden is the FDR of our times!

Biden does not get nearly enough credit for the good work he’s doing, but we already knew that!
