Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yingst, who has been broadcasting daily from war-torn Ukraine, took issue with Vice President Kamala Harris’ joint presser with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Poland Thursday, describing it as nothing more than a glad-handed meeting that was “detached from reality.”
On “Fox and Friends” Thursday, co-host Brian Kilmeade opened the segment noting the recent rejection by the U.S. of Poland’s offer to send their existing MiG-29 fighter aircraft – ostensibly because of the optics of provocation – and he wondered why that was completely glossed over at the press conference.
Yingst agreed and said the presser “came across like a bilateral check-in [and] it was detached from the reality on the ground.”
“As the pair spoke, there were air raid sirens sounding in the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv,” Yingst said. “We heard this diplomatic and political-speak from Vice President Harris. The Ukrainian people don’t need that. They need anti-tank missiles. They need anti-aircraft batteries. We heard all of this talk that you hear out of Washington about cooperation and friendship and to be nimble and swift in the response and understanding and appreciating. There are people dying as we speak on the ground in Ukraine.”
The reporter also remarked that while Harris did indeed mention the bombing of a children’s hospital by Russian forces, it was only as a matter of fact.
“She didn’t talk about the consequences for that. She didn’t talk about the fact that we are viewing evidence of war crimes taking place on the ground in Ukraine at the hands of an autocrat: Vladimir Putin,” Yingst observed.
“The Ukrainian people need anti-tank missiles, aircraft batteries, and they are calling for a no-fly zone,” he reiterated. “They don’t need thoughts and prayers.” He went on to criticize the constant tough-talking of government leaders from the U.S. while women and children are being bombed due to the hesitation to institute a no-fly zone over Ukraine, which many believe would be an irreversible step into a much wider conflict between NATO countries and Russia.
A clip of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was also shown in which he described the cruel Russian strategy of surrounding cities and then blocking them off from food and water in an attempt to break the will and spirit of the citizens, with the ultimate aim of eliciting a surrender from Zelenskyy and his government.
Harris was quickly rebuked on social media for appearing to laugh after a question about Ukrainian refugees, in what is roundly being slammed as a disastrous press conference on behalf of the U.S. vice president.
Also mentioned in the segment was rising concern over the historically infamous Chernobyl nuclear plant being taken off the power grid following its seizure by Russian forces.
