January 1, Video: Lawmaker Calls Zelensky a ‘Thug,’ Ukraine ‘Evil’



Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) called Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky a “thug,” marking a distinct difference from the majority of the GOP with a favorable view of the country’s leader amid a Russian military invasion.

“Remember that Zelenskyy is a thug,” Cawthorn said in a video. “Remember that the Ukrainian government is incredibly corrupt and is incredibly evil and has been pushing woke ideologies.”

Karl Rove, a former White House deputy chief of staff said Cawthorn’s remarks were made at a town hall in Ashe­ville, N.C., and that they “don’t re­flect Re­pub­li­can opin­ion.” 

Cawthorn later posted a link to an article titled “World War Reddit” along with the caption: “Propaganda is being used to entice America into another war. I do not want Americans dying because emotions pushed us into a conflict.”

“The actions of Putin and Russia are disgusting,” he added. “But leaders, including Zelensky, should NOT push misinformation on America.”

“I am praying for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. Pray also we are not drawn into conflict based on foreign leaders pushing misinformation.”

    The Ukrainian President has his issues, I am sure, but the REAL THUG is Putin and the Russian leaders.

    Zelensky may be a thug but what do you call Putin?. Zelenski did not invade Russia and has not killed thousands of Russians and caused thousands to leave their homes in fear. Putin thumbs his nose at every one and dose what he wants much like what Biden dose to Americans. So tell me who is the THUG?
