For days, President Biden has refused to approve or facilitate the transfer of MiG-29 fighter jets from Poland to Ukraine because Asin argues that they are “offensive” weapons and not “defensive.” But according to ABC’s Kackling Koven SceneAll of this was the fault of Congressional Republicans and somehow former President Trump.
“I’m sorry. Where were all these Republicans when the former man in the office took the money hostage and said, ‘We won’t pay you until you give me information about Beau Biden.’ Co-host Huppy Goldberg criticized Biden for playing a series of Republican soundbits and shouted that his information was incorrect.
After correcting Goldberg that it was Hunter Biden, former VP Press Secretary Alyssa Farah Griffin announced that she wanted to make it “abundantly clear” that “Donald Trump is no longer president and we have a humanitarian crisis.”
But he was cut off by an angry Goldberg who shouted: “No. No. It’s not – I’m sorry. You can’t stand up and say, hey, this guy isn’t doing his job. He is doing what he is supposed to do. ”
Farah notes and pushes back “[w]Thousands of Ukrainians are dying every day “and if you don’t want to impose a no-fly zone because of the risk,” he says, referring to the MiG, a military aircraft that would allow it to implement a no-fly zone. “
“I understand that what I want to commit is the truth These people are now worried about what is happening. Goldberg sighed.
Co-host Sunny HoustonThe value of ABC News“How he shouted about taking information out of context “31 Republicans have voted against providing military assistance to Ukraine[.]”So, that’s a lot of the Republican Party, and I think it’s disgusting, and I think it’s disgusting, and I don’t think you should defend it.” He smiled, refusing to look into Farah’s eyes.
“We only have one date, I think, about two Democrats who opposed the transfer of the fighter jet. That Dick Durbin and Mark Kelly. Its opponent, Richard Blumenthal, now supports it. So, I think a lot of the opposition we’re seeing to the supply of these warplanes is coming from the Republicans. “ He insisted.
What Houston failed to mention was that those Republicans were in the Senate and did not approve of linking Ukraine’s aid to a general bill to finance the U.S. federal government, a ploy by Democrats to elicit such reaction from the media. Like Houston.
Even left-wing politicians have acknowledged the inspiration of Republicans. “The bills were tied together in the Senate, where most Republicans opposed the package. Senate Republicans on Wednesday said they would vote differently on a separate Ukraine bill, “they wrote on Wednesday.
Added: “More than 100 Republicans in the House voted in favor of both bills, emphasizing the level of unity in the Kremlin attack.”
So to help Houston with the math, 100 is bigger than 31 and Biden is the leader and president of the Democratic Party. He is on his way to get those jets from Ukraine.
Opinions about who is hindering the MiGs in Ukraine due to the lucrative sponsorship of Carvana and Purina are false. Their contact information is attached.

Hoopi Goldberg: I’m sorry. Where were all these Republicans when the former man in the office took the money hostage and said, “We won’t pay you until you give me information about Beau Biden – wait, not Beau Biden.”
Alyssa Farah Griffin: Hunter.
Goldberg: Is it Hunter? Hunter Biden. I mean, I don’t think they were concerned that there was a problem, especially when the President of Ukraine said, listen. We need this. We need to be able to defend ourselves, and he hangs up. Where were you? I don’t think you have given a good blessing – [shakes head clenches fists]
Farah: Huppy. Hoopy, tell me where I was. I was in the United States Department of Defense, and we were working around the clock to get this aid released in Ukraine, security assistance released.
Goldberg: Why did he hold it?
Farah: I think that’s a question that was covered in the impeachment, and I think a lot of people are looking back at the first impeachment and saying, hey, I should have given another vote.
Goldberg: Yes, but they did not. See, you can’t do that. Why – I’m sorry.
Anna Navarro: Why isn’t Secretary Pompeo talking? I say everything Trump has done. He has a lot more to do with that. He spread propaganda that Ukraine was involved in the 2016 elections. He has expelled the highly respected US ambassador to Ukraine.
Sunny Hostin: Yes, he did.
Navarro: Because who he was and what he did. He also cut off military aid to Ukraine. He postponed a meeting at the White House with Zelensky on the grounds that Zelensky did not play ball with him. And he handed over the Ukraine policy to Rudy Giuliani. [Cackles]
Farah: Although I want to make it clear, Donald Trump is no longer president and we have a humanitarian crisis.
Goldberg: No. No. It’s not – I’m sorry. You can’t stand up and say, hey, this guy isn’t doing his job. He is doing what he is supposed to do.
Navarro: I’ll tell you where they were. They were so high up in Donald Trump’s nostrils that you could see they had souls.
Farah: Thousands of our Ukrainians are dying every day, and what President Zelensky wants, if you don’t want a no-fly zone for which there is a very good argument for and against, he wants the MiG to do whatever it takes for military aircraft to make the no-fly zone effective. Allow.
Goldberg: I understand that. The thing that bothers me is that these people are suddenly worried about what is happening now.
HOUSTIN: And how concerned are 31 Republicans last Thursday when they voted against providing military aid to Ukraine? 31 Republicans.
Farah: Yes. It’s disrespectful. It’s disrespectful. I do not agree with that.
HOUSTIN: They voted in favor of impeachment. They have decided not to try to impeach him because of his actions in Ukraine, and they voted last Thursday against Alyssa, aiding Ukraine. So, that’s a lot of the Republican Party, and I think it’s disgusting, and I think it’s disgusting, and I don’t think you should defend it.
Farah: Well, and I’ll say it. Yes – I will say it. There is a long-standing tradition in American politics when we are at war that we do not really attack the Commander-in-Chief. We should criticize the policy that I am doing with Joe Biden, but I am on the side of Joe Biden who is the President and I hope we can get through this conflict. But I will urge him to bring the migs to the Ukrainians. Get their military aircraft so they can protect their skies.
HOUSTIN: Well, the point is that Congress seems quite united in opposing President Zelensky’s request, doesn’t it? He wants a no-fly zone. They are united in their opposition to it, but many Republicans are united in their opposition to the supply of warplanes.
I think we only need to date, about two Democrats who have opposed the transfer of fighter jets. That Dick Durbin and Mark Kelly. Richard Blumenthal, who opposed it, now supports it. So, I think there’s a lot of opposition coming from the Republicans that we’re seeing delivering these fighter jets.
Navarro: Joe Biden gave a speech yesterday – President Biden gave a speech, and we – yesterday he approved another 800 800 million in aid to Ukraine which has now brought it to over one billion. These include 9,000 anti-armament systems, 7,000 small arms, 800 Stinger and anti-craft systems, 20 million rounds of ammunition, 100 drones, and he is helping Ukraine acquire additional long-range aircraft.
I agree with Mitt Romney who came out and said we need to give them the Migs because we are not in the no-fly zone, then they should be given whatever they can to fight for themselves.
