Vice President Joseph Biden’s unexpected trip to Ukraine has generated a great deal of criticism. Biden did not advertise the trip in advance, and he was not in the United States on President’s Day, a statutory holiday on which current presidents typically commemorate their predecessors.
In addition, Biden departed for his tour without visiting New Palestine, Ohio, which is suffering from hazardous poisoning as a result of chemicals discharged in a railway crash three weeks prior. Despite Ohio’s calamity, Biden traveled to Ukraine to congratulate President Zelensky and then to Poland.
When the circumstances surrounding President Biden’s travel to Ukraine was being covered on the Fox News prime-time program “Hannity,” a fight broke out. After vetoing an agreement to deploy Polish fighter jets to the war-torn nation this year, the presenter, Sean Hannity, contended that the president was not doing enough to aid Ukraine.
“If we’re going to give $120 billion to Ukraine and then Joe Biden has now not once, but a number of times, he has vetoed other European countries from giving fighter jets so that they can compete with Putin in the air,” the host said. “And there’s no reason to do that except, he’s not fighting to win the war.”
“It’s a proxy war,” Charles Payne, who is a host on Fox Business, said. “I think the administration’s happy if it’s just bogged down. If you can bog Russia down, they lose a lot of people.” “The only thing I did not like about President Biden’s visit was the air raid sirens. That was the most phony baloney stuff. The air raid sirens hadn’t gone on, ’cause they hadn’t gone off for five days. It was …” Payne said before Rivera interrupted by saying “They’ve lost 100,000 people.”
“The only thing I did not like about President Biden’s visit was the air raid sirens. That was the most phony baloney stuff. The air raid sirens hadn’t gone on, ’cause they hadn’t gone off for five days. It was …” Payne said before Rivera interrupted by saying “They’ve lost 100,000 people.”
“Air raid sirens had not gone off in that city in five days. It was phony baloney Hollywood junk,” Payne said.
Geraldo Rivera responded scathingly to Payne’s comments, and he and Rivera got into an argument when Rivera made a foolish assertion and then a false one, as reported by Conservative Brief.
“I absolutely disagree,” Rivera replied.
“They didn’t need that,” said Payne.
“That is a little partisan jab that you didn’t have to make. They have lost 100,000–,” Rivera added.
“Russia was notified that Biden was coming. Do you think Russia was gonna drop a bomb on President Biden?!” Payne cried out.
“Russia was not notified,” claimed Rivera.
“Yes they were!” Payne stated. He was indeed accurate. Moscow was informed of President Biden’s arrival in Ukraine hours before he arrived.
“We did notify the Russians that President Biden would be traveling to Kyiv. We did so some hours before his departure for deconfliction purposes,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, said to reporters in a press briefing on Monday, ABC News reported.
“Because of the sensitive nature of those communications, I won’t get into how they responded or what the precise nature of our message was. But I can confirm that we provided that notification,” he added.
Russia knew Biden was Ukraine! Air Raid Alarm sounded as a symbolic recognition of Biden being there with Zelenskyy. You didn’t see people scrambling for safety! But Geraldo Rivera didn’t like Charles Payne calling out the truth to him about the visit and what was fake, etc! pic.twitter.com/AYceFpOF6G

When the network hosts debated Ukraine, President Biden’s travel to Poland was also reported in the news. AP writes that a day after his unexpected visit to Kyiv, Vice President Joe Biden delivered a speech in Warsaw praising European partners for their efforts over the last year and sending a strong message to Russian President Vladimir Putin that “NATO will not be divided, and we will not tire.” CONTINUE READING…
