Conservatives are increasingly questioning Joe Biden’s proxy war against Russia.
Many Americans are wondering why Joe Biden made Ukraine priority number one.
And now this Fox News star just defended Joe Biden over Ukraine.
On Presidents’ Day Biden flew to Ukraine to demonstrate to President Volodymyr Zelensky and the Ukrainian people his unyielding commitment to blank-check funding for the war against Russia.
Republicans like Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis blasted Biden for placing the Ukrainian people as his number one priority and neglecting the American people.
Biden refused to visit East Palestine, Ohio, where a train derailment spilled toxic chemicals.
And Biden traveled to Ukraine — once — the same number of times Biden visited the southern border.
Biden’s neglected the border despite the fact that illegal aliens invade in record numbers and Mexican drug cartels smuggle in deadly fentanyl that kills tens of thousands of Americans every year.
“So I think while he’s over there, I think I and many Americans are thinking to ourselves, okay, ‘He’s very concerned about those borders halfway around the world. He’s not done anything to secure our own border here at home.’ We’ve had millions and millions of people pour in, tens of thousands of Americans dead because of fentanyl, and then, of course, we just suffered a national humiliation of having China fly a spy balloon clear across the continental United States,” Governor DeSantis said on “Fox and Friends.”
But Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume defended Biden prioritizing Ukraine over America.
Hume claimed Biden didn’t need to visit East Palestine and show he cared about the community’s plight.
“The key thing always is, what if anything is the administration obliged to do when something like this happens?” Hume asked. “Visits by officials are nice, but they’re essentially political gestures. I mean, I don’t think the administration’s policies or actions toward East Palestine would be any different if more officials had gone there.”
Hume then claimed focusing on Ukraine was Biden’s job and that Biden’s neglect has nothing to do with the focus on the war against Russia.
“I completely reject the parallel that’s been drawn between his going to Ukraine and not going – so far, at least – to East Palestine,” Hume continued. “The federal government – preeminently – has a responsibility for our national defense. There’s no private sector involvement in that except [in] the sense that they make weapons and there’s no state and local government involved in that. It is the federal government’s job. And when the president is doing that job, he’s doing it the key and foremost task of his presidency.”
Fox News viewers could not believe what they were hearing.
The federal government’s focus centers where the president wants.
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg ignored the crisis in East Palestine for nearly two weeks.
Buttigieg got away with being asleep at the switch because Biden took even longer to notice thanks to his maniacal concentration on Ukraine.
