Another MSNBC guest and so-called “journalist”/”scholar” has falsely linked Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to former President Donald Trump.

Sarah Kendzior, a so-called “journalist” who even once wrote a book about Trump, claimed specifically — and without any evidence — that the former president was purposefully “installed as the president of the United States in order to weaken the alliances that were preventing Putin from achieving his goals.”

“Alliances like NATO, our relationship with our European partners, our relationship with Ukraine. Trump was put in as a bulldozer,” she added.

While Trump was fairly aggressive toward NATO during his four years in office, his disdain for the organization spans decades, and largely because of the financial aspect.

“And he was also put in as … a bulldozer to the Constitution, to our system of checks and balances, to our system of institutional trust,” Kendzior continued.

“And the unwillingness of people in the United States to confront the brokenness of those institutions, whether through financial corruption in recent years or age-old systemic problems like the endemic racism that holds our country up, has contributed to that.”

She concluded by throwing shade at Fox News: “And Fox News in this sense is just an extension of that long-running destructive pattern,” she said.

When MSNBC shared a clip of her speaking to Twitter, respondents replied with a great deal of befuddlement and mockery given that the facts so clearly belie everything Kendzior had claimed.


Trump’s complaints about NATO date back to at least 1987, when he complained to then-CNN host Larry King about other countries not paying their fair share.

“I don’t want to single out Japan. I don’t want to single out Saudi Arabia. But these are countries that people understand the kind of wealth we’re talking about. … [T]here are many other countries … taking tremendous advantage of this. If you look at the payments that we’re making to NATO, they’re totally disproportionate with everybody else’s. And it’s ridiculous,” he said.

“[I]f we can solve this, then we’re able to take care of something that I consider to be ultimately of ultimate importance, and that is the homeless situation, that is the farmers, that is the sick. We don’t have any money. This country is busted, and it’s busted because we’re doing things that we shouldn’t be doing.”


Moreover, the facts show that Trump was far kinder to Ukraine and tougher on Russia, the country that supposedly “installed” him in office, than either his predecessor, Barack Obama, or his successor, Joe Biden.

As previously reported, former President Obama refused to supply Ukraine with Javelin anti-tank missiles, even when Russia invaded Crimea in 2014. Not til Trump stepped into office in 2017 did Ukraine finally receive these weapons.

“In May 2018, after Ukraine tested its new Javelin missiles, [then-Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko exulted on Twitter ‘Finally this day has come!’ and personally thanked Trump ‘for supporting Ukraine and adopting a decision to provide Javelin antitank missile systems,’” according to a 3-year-old report from The Washington Post.

Meanwhile, upon taking office, current President Biden began handing Putin gift after gift after gift.

As for Kendzior’s claim that it’s Trump who’d acted like a “a bulldozer to the Constitution, to our system of checks and balances, to our system of institutional trust,” it should be noted that it was Biden who eagerly shattered a record for signing the most executive orders in a single week.

It’s also Biden who illegally extended the eviction moratorium last year, injected racial essentialism into the federal government and tried to impose an authoritarian COVID vaccine diktat on the American people …
