Congressman calls Biden ‘an inept geriatric despot’ on House Floor over deployment of US soldiers

U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn delivered a blistering speech on the House floor, excoriating President Joe Biden as an “idiot” and a “geriatric despot.”

The North Carolina Republican lambasted the president for approving the deployment of 3,000 U.S. soldiers to Germany, Poland, and Romania in the wake of growing tensions with Russia.

The move was reportedly an effort to show support for NATO countries in Eastern Europe amid Russia’s military maneuvers, as troops gather along the Ukraine border.

Cawthorn tore into the decision to send U.S. troops during his floor speech on Wednesday.

“Madam Speaker, the sons and daughters of America are not foot soldiers for your party’s inept geriatric despot,” the freshman lawmaker said.

“They are not expendable pawns to be dispatched at the whims of an idiot, tossed carelessly around the world to godforsaken caves and bloody sandboxes,” he added.

“They are Americans, worthy of honor and dignity. The only salute from them Joe Biden deserves involves one finger,” Cawthorn boldly declared.

“American blood is not the currency of the world, it cannot be borrowed, exchanged or lent to any man or nation. Its worth is immeasurable,” he continued, calling out Biden’s “reckless incompetence” in the botched Afghanistan withdrawal of U.S. troops last year.

“The path to American national security does not lie in American international interventionism,” he said. “It lies in securing our southern border – not the Russia-Ukraine border. Our greatness is forged in our resistance to interference. The war lobby has no ally in the America First Republicans. ”

“We will preserve our strength through nationalism. We will champion America First today and America First forever,” Cawthorn concluded.
