Marjorie Taylor Greene told to stop ‘repeating Putin’s propaganda’ after she speaks out against Ukraine aid
She claims there is $40bn for Ukraine but ‘no baby formula for American mothers and babies’

Republican lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene was told to “stop repeating Putin’s propaganda” after she contested a $40bn (£32.4bn) aid package for Ukraine on Tuesday, claiming that the Biden administration was using this to cover up its crimes.

The bill would provide Ukraine military and economic assistance, replenish weapons the Pentagon has shipped overseas and provide $5bn to address global food shortages.

As members of the US House of Representatives began debating the aid package, Ms Greene said: “$40bn dollars but there’s no baby formula for American mothers and babies.”

“An unknown amount of money to the CIA and Ukraine supplemental bill but there’s no formula for American babies,” she added. “Stop funding regime change and money laundering scams. A US politician covers up their crimes in countries like Ukraine.”

1. She Doesn't Give A Shit About American Mothers & Babies

I didn't read who it was that told her to "Stop," but that sort of solution is only going to result in her doubling down, and spewing some more Bullshit.

7. She is so vile...

That it would actually be amusing to see someone kidnap her, take away her phone and drop her off in a third world country, see if she makes it back home.

9. Just drop her off in Harlem, or Detroit, or East L.A. without so much as a bus pass.

With any luck at all she'd be directed to a shelter, poor dear.

15. The US government doesn't make or purchase baby formula. Private industry does

I point out to every one of those Trumpers that, when they bitch about formula shortages as Biden's fault, they're in actuality showing a massive failure of the free market capitalism they love so much.

17. Yeah, it does. Starting with the fifth paragraph

However, her remarks were criticised by Democrat lawmaker Jamie Raskin, who asked her to not parrot the propaganda of Russian president Vladimir Putin.

“Here’s a formula for the destruction of democracy: repeating Putin’s propaganda and disinformation and appeasing imperialist assaults on sovereign nations,” the Maryland district representative said in the House in response to Ms Greene.
