We need to be committed to playing the role of defender of freedom and liberties. Today, I questioned Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin & Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the importance of the U.S. providing military aid for Israel & our commitment to supporting Ukraine. pic.twitter.com/tSOwqNizlM

Tell me, Mr. Gorilla: what will happen with US support?
They will seize Crimea, right?
Why are there no adults?
If the US stops funding Ukraine, Russia will win the ongoing conflict between the two countries, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told the Senate Appropriations Committee on Monday, making the case for $44 billion more in military and other aid to the government in Kiev.
“I can guarantee that, without our support, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin will be successful,” Austin told the senators. “If we pull the rug out from under them now, Putin will only get stronger and he will be successful in doing what he wants to do.”
Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken were asking the lawmakers to approve President Joe Biden’s $106 billion supplemental funding request, which has bundled the Ukraine funding with aid to Israel and Taiwan, among other things.
Of the proposed $44.4 billion for Ukraine, $12 billion would go towards buying weapons and $18 billion would be spent on replacing weapons the US has already sent Kiev.
Cybersecurity, “intelligence support” and “enhanced presence” of US troops in Europe would cost another $10.7 billion, while $3.7 billion would be spent to “expand production capacity in our industrial base,” according to Austin’s opening testimony.
Get this ape out of here.
This is ridiculous.
Look at him:
See if AI can tell whether or not he’s a gorilla, because I sure as hell can’t.
He’s a “former” Raytheon employee, I know that. But they may employ gorillas. I don’t know their policy on that.
Imagine how totally absurd our government is that not one single member of the Senate threw a banana at this nigger while he was testifying.
