U.S. mainstream media outlets spent all of Thursday repeating the exact same talking point that Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky is the modern day Winston Churchill, following his cringeworthy red carpet treatment by Democrats in D.C. earlier in the week.
As we previously highlighted, Biden was caught groping Zelensky during the visit. The Ukrainian President walked into the Congress, gave an angry speech, raised a Ukrainian flag, and complained that 50 billion dollars wasn’t enough before leaving.
Summit.news reports: In the aftermath, Tucker Carlson noted how every media talking head repeated the same thing Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer had prepared for them, namely that Zelensky is the new Churchill.
Some have pointed out that this is highly ironic, given that Churchill led the charge to purge the world of Nazis, while in Ukraine they still enjoy relative immunity.
Referring to the repeaters, Carlson asked “How can any self respecting Americans sit there when some foreign dictator shows up wearing his work out clothes in the U.S. Congress and starts demanding, with a very apparent lack of gratitude, that we send him tens of billions of dollars when we are running out of money?”
“Because you’re not a self respecting American… you have no dignity, you don’t care,” the host continued, adding “you’ll say anything, you’ll repeat any lie, any talking point. And when someone from the DNC or the White House sends a note saying ‘compare him to Churchill,’ you do.”
Elsewhere during the broadcast, Carlson mocked U.S. lawmakers for “clapping like seals” for a dictator, noting “They applaud, all of them. Almost like they have to.”
He added, “when a foreign leader shows up in cargo pants to tell them lies and give them orders, they all applaud. That’s pretty weird behavior in a democracy, if you think about it.”
Carlson also noted how Zelensky was allowed to “drape a Ukrainian flag in our Congress”:
