Rep. Thomas Massie took a shot at Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on social media before skipping his speech on Capitol Hill, joining other Republicans in an apparent boycott of the wartime leader’s address.
“I’m in DC but I will not be attending the speech of the Ukrainian lobbyist,” Massie (R-Ky.) wrote in a Twitter post Wednesday, minutes before the Ukrainian leader thanked lawmakers for providing US military aid to Ukraine.
“It is not charity. Charity would be given freely. The American taxpayers have been conscripted into making welfare payments to this foreign government,” Massie said of the billions of dollars in aid sent to Ukraine as it fights off Russian invaders.
Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) — who have also openly questioned the need for more US aid for Ukraine — reportedly were not in attendance for Zelensky’s remarks either, according to NBC News reporter Julie Tsirkin.
Right-wing firebrand Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) did not applaud as Zelensky entered the chamber to a rousing standing ovation from the vast majority of lawmakers in attendance, according to multiple reports.

Good for those guys. They love their country, unlike ours.
It is all “hush money” for the goods they have on the Biden Cosa Nostra.
I loved that, especially the part where they snatched the mask off of one of the MPs holding the Ukrainian flag!
Butt, butt, butt......churchill and stuff.... 🤢🐴💩
And the Swamp creatures were shouting “Slava Ukrainiya” (which was the slogan used by the Bandera-ites).
I’m surprised they didn’t have their arms extended in a Nazi salute. Well, as long as he’s fighting the Russians, I guess he’s as kosher as prime gold-rated gefillte fish. Seems “never again” is a thing of the past.
I saw this meme, but didn’t have the guts to post it!
Massie is a modern Cassandra
He will be proven 100% correct about everything - but the blind and arrogant trend-followers in DC will never recognize it.
That’s a good (and effective) illustration. Thanks!
I want more people to get mad over all this “aid” but who knows..
The weird thing is there is not even an IG or auditor appointed to oversee it which has been commonplace for a while when these kind of sums are thrown around (Afghanistan for example).
By the way I clicked the #thomasmassie tag and see most of it is from yours truly!
Safe to say I’m also a Massie fan. Have a look he’s a great congressman...
Reminds me of when Pelosi was the Congressional mattress for the entire Clinton and Obama cabinet.
If Zelensky doesn’t creep you out, you are part of the problem.
He is likely the best person in Congress right now.
Yes, it is. Along with a few other Congressional criminals.
