Tucker reams Congress for drooling over ‘Ukrainian strip club manager’: ‘They love him more than they love you’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the quiet part out loud on Wednesday, dissing Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who came to Washington, D.C., begging for money and receiving it in a fit of “bipartisan masochism” while looking like the “manager of a strip club.”

Zelenskyy showed up in a camouflage-colored sweatshirt, similar-colored pants, and combat boots and was received like a rock star by the elderly power wielders of Congress who were in suits. They practically drooled over him and couldn’t wait to hand out billions to Ukraine while the U.S. border is in ruins and our country teeters on the edge of financial catastrophe.

“As far as we know, no one’s ever addressed the United States Congress in a sweatshirt before, but they love him much more than they love you,” Carlson stated at the opening of his segment.

“Somehow we were reminded of it today when the president of Ukraine arrived at the White House, dressed like the manager of a strip club and started to demand money. Amazingly, no one threw him out. Instead, they did whatever he wanted. American taxpayers declare Joe Biden will continue to give Zelenskyy whatever he demands for, quote, ‘as long as it takes.’ Tellingly, Biden never specified what ‘it’ is. As long as it takes to do what? Push the Russian army back to pre-invasion borders? Sounds reasonable,” he continued.

Then Carlson pointed out that the goal of giving Ukraine big bucks is no longer to just protect it from Russia, but regime change bent on ousting Vladimir Putin. Something Americans have not agreed to and has not been approved by Congress. With the gift of the Patriot Missile Defense System to the country, Carlson contends we are entering into a hot war with Russia.

“That’s what most Americans likely assume, those who are still paying attention. But that is not what Zelenskyy means, and it is not what he is asking for. Zelenskyy is demanding regime change in Russia, just like in Iraq and Libya, and a long list of other failed states. Except this time, in the heart of the Eurasian landmass, next door to the entire civilized world. That’s what Zelenskyy has called for repeatedly, and every dollar we send to him goes toward that end. At this point, he’s getting a lot closer to achieving it,” Carlson commented.

“So what happens if he ‘wins?’ What does the ensuing chaos look like? Thought about that? Who’s going to secure the world’s largest nuclear arsenal once we help Zelenskyy topple the Russian government? Who replaces Putin? Strangely, those topics did not come up today because that wasn’t the point,” he added. “The point of today’s visit to Washington was not to make the world more stable or make wise decisions, much less to help America. That’s always at the bottom of the list. The point was to fawn over the Ukrainian strip club manager and hand him billions more dollars from our own crumbling economy. It is hard, in fact, it may be impossible to imagine a more humiliating scenario for the greatest country on earth. And we would love to blame Joe Biden for it. But we can’t really, not entirely, at least.”


Carlson went on to slam Biden and Democrats for groveling before Zelenskyy. Then he went after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) with a vengeance as well as other sycophantic Republicans.

“This was bipartisan masochism. The uniparty is alive and well despite the best efforts of voters, including last month. And if you doubt that it’s alive and well, here’s a picture of Zelenskyy that he had taken with a group of elderly Republican senators in Kyiv back in May. They stand grinning next to him in their orthopedic shoes. 70-year-old Susan Collins, John Barrasso, John Cornyn, led by their 80-year-old ringleader, Mitch McConnell. Forty-four-year-old Zelenskyy poses between them in a skintight polo shirt, flexing like a weightlifter and trying to look ferocious,” he noted.

“They seem awestruck. Not since a young Fidel Castro showed up in New York wearing battle fatigues has this country’s aging leadership class tittered more loudly in delight. They love a man in uniform. What a hunk. So strong and decisive. Look at the expression on Mitch McConnell’s face, you could almost hear the giggles of pleasure,” Carlson sneered.

The Fox News host also pointed out that Zelenskyy is allegedly not what he appears to be.

“No rational person assessing the issues ever would have predicted this moment. If you were a Republican officeholder and Zelenskyy came to Washington, maybe you would for a moment, ask him about his current and ongoing war against Christianity in Ukraine. Especially if you were, say, Mitch McConnell or John Cornyn and a lot of your own voters go to church on Sunday. They might care about that issue. But McConnell and Cornyn didn’t mention it. They didn’t say a word. You will not hear a word on television tonight about the fact that Zelenskyy has banned an entire ancient Christian denomination in Ukraine and then seized churches and then thrown priests into jail. According to Mitch McConnell, who apparently hasn’t left his office since the mid-eighties, anti-Christian despotism is what most Republicans want above all. They don’t get enough. They’re just begging for it,” he asserted.

“Defeating Putin is, quote, ‘the number one priority among Republicans,’ says Mitch McConnell, who leads Republicans in the Senate. Number one? Before our own economy? Or our own children’s schools? Or, for that matter, before the more than 2,000 young people killed last year by fentanyl in Mitch McConnell’s ‘home state’ of Kentucky? Punishing Vladimir Putin for putting Donald Trump in office is more important than all of that says Mitch McConnell. Ukraine’s borders matter. Ours don’t matter. You may have suspected they thought that. But at this point, they’re just coming out and saying this right in your face. And of course, the White House agrees completely. Watch Joe Biden announce today that you’ll be paying for even more advanced weapons systems to be sent to Ukraine, whether you like it or not,” Carlson vented.

Carlson also recounted that just a few months ago we swore we would not put a Patriot battery in Ukraine because we would have to send US troops with it. Now, we are doing exactly that.

“In other words, you would have to fight a hot war against Russia, which has not only not been approved by the Congress, but most Americans have no idea that’s happening. But now it is happening. Did you know that? Are you for that? Is it the most important thing? More important than your nephew dying of fentanyl? Yes, says Mitch McConnell. But it’s just the beginning. Because as you just saw, Zelenskyy has arrived in Washington to make more demands. He’s the houseguest who would not leave. And every moment we tolerate him, the demands become bigger,” he accused.

“So the leader of a foreign government, dressed in a sweatshirt, waltzes into the United States Congress and starts demanding money. And then has the gall to tell the people sitting there, who are giving him tens of billions of dollars more of your money, that it is not charity, it’s an investment. Really, what are the returns on that? And by the way, what’s the point of it? What is the goal here? What’s the justification for it? Do we have a historic debt to Ukraine? Do we have a historic animosity with a non-Soviet Russia? No, no. How do we win here? What’s in it for us? Isn’t this our country? And where do you get off talking to us like that? Do we hate ourselves so much? Do we have so little respect for the United States of America that we put up with that, that we’ll applaud it? Thank you, sir. May I have another? What’s wrong with us? What’s wrong with our leaders? And where is this going?” Carlson concluded.

An outraged Russia predictably responded to the news of the new weaponry with further threats to Ukraine, according to the Daily Mail.

Kremlin top spokesman Dmitri Peskov claimed the delivery of Patriot missiles will lead “to an aggravation of the conflict” and does “not bode well for Ukraine.”
