‘Outnumbered’ co-host ‘ashamed’ of Biden and Harris for feeble and floundering Russia response

Emily Compagno stated she’s “ashamed” Joe Biden is president right now for his failure to deescalate tensions between Russia and Ukraine.

Compagno, attorney and co-host of “Outnumbered,” appeared on “The Five” Monday and voiced her embarrassment of the Biden administration as news circulated that Russian President Vladimir Putin had recognized Donetsk and Luhansk of the Donbas region of Ukraine as independent republics.

Co-host Dana Perino first pointed to an earlier conversation where Compagno had spoken compassionately of those innocents in the region who are now in danger.

“It breaks my heart,” Compagno said of the bystanders caught up in the turmoil. “The blame lies squarely on the shoulders of obviously Putin, but also Biden.”

She went on to detail the agenda items that have taken precedence for Biden while the situation in eastern Europe had been steadily deteriorating.

“We have a perceived commander-in-chief who has spent all of his time in office manufacturing a narrative about perceived erosion of voting rights,” Compagno stated, “and of taking direction from teachers’ unions and the CDC for masking kids. That’s what our president has been focused on.”

Looking to Geraldo Rivera seated beside her, Compagno made reference to suggestions that this is the time for Biden to be clear and confident but that she “has no hope in him” hosting a summit with Putin to resolve this.

“In fact,” Compagno declared, “I am frankly ashamed that he is the commander-in-chief right now. And I’m ashamed with our vice president going over there and taking that position.” Compagno was referring to Vice President Kamala Harris’ repeated statements that the threat of sanctions imposed after an invasion would be enough to deter Putin from taking action, calling it, “anything but strong.”

As events continue to unfold in Ukraine, Compagno implied that Putin had likely been planning action for Tuesday, after learning of a specific Ukrainian anniversary from Fox News National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin.

“Griffin,” Compagno said, “pointed out…tomorrow, February 22nd, that’s known as the Revolution of Dignity there in Ukraine and that’s a day of humiliation for Russia. It’s a day of great significance there for Putin.”

Compagno went on to detail how Putin had suggested in July that the act of voicing “anti-Russian sentiment” was no different than having weapons of mass destruction against Russia. She further emphasized the timing of events and how Biden had squandered his opportunity to act, adding that relations between Ukraine and Russia were, “quiet during the past administration because we had a different commander-in-chief at the helm.”

That sentiment has been spreading as even corporate media figures like NBC’s Chuck Todd have addressed the fact that Putin chose to be an aggressor under the Biden administration rather than during President Trump’s tenure.  While Secretary of State Antony Blinken avoided answering the question, it is clear from the response that Putin views Biden’s diplomacy as hollow and empty threats.
