Biden throws "Vladimir" Zelensky under the bus
The president tells his Ukrainian counterpart that as long as Ukraine is taking US money, we own him
This week world leaders met at the NATO summit in Lithuania, and depending on who you ask, our president Joe Biden was either a strongman or let himself get run over and left behind.
If you ask Zelensky, the answer would be the big-guy mob-boss version of Joe Biden. After getting Zelensky’s first name wrong (power move), Biden told the Ukrainian president that as long as he was sending money and weapons for the proxy war, he owns Zelensky: “You’re stuck with us.”
If you ask Fox News’ Jesse Watters, you’ll get a different answer: “Biden looks like a freshman on the first day of school, just letting every world leader walk all over him.” In a hilarious clip, Biden gets pushed back and forth as the other leaders lunge to shake Zelensky’s hand, all forgetting our Joe exists.
Join Katie and Aaron for the throwdown and decide: tough guy or baby J?
Plus, MSNBC gives a beautiful tribute to the FBI they love so much, trashing all proponents of free speech as Russian propagandists. As Joy Reid tells the journalists like Aaron who were shown to be censored by the FBI in the Twitter Files: “It’s not censorship, it’s you.” And then she unleashes the smuggest smile you’ve ever seen. It’s not for the faint of heart.
There’s so much to throw down on. Katie and Aaron have got you covered. It’s our Thursday bonus episode. Let us know in the comments what corporate media monologues, interviews, or anything else you want to see on the next Thursday Throwdown.
