"The Russians are dying... it's the best money we've ever spent."
Lindsey Graham's dreams come true as families die and the war rages on
Neocons rejoice! There’s nothing quite as sweet as money well spent, except of course when it’s hundreds of billions of other people’s dollars spent to end the lives of countless Russians. For Lindsey Graham, that’s as sweet as it gets.
In a video edited by Ukraine, Graham tells a grinning Zelenskyy the bold truth that other neocons like Jamie Raskin are too afraid to say out loud: "The Russians are dying... it's the best money we've ever spent." The funniest part is that, as explained by Twitter’s Community Notes feature, Graham didn’t actually say the two lines consecutively. It was the Ukrainian government posting the video who edited it to cut out the BS and say what they’re all thinking.
Plus, corporate media backtracks on the six years of explosive screaming that Donald Trump is the end of democracy and the worst thing that can ever happen to us. That’s right, there’s someone worse than the end of democracy, and his name is Ron DeSantis.
There was too much for Katie and Aaron to throw down on this week as primary season builds and the Ukraine proxy war tickles corporate media silly. Join them to laugh/cry at it all.
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.
