CNN anchor Jake Tapper questioned whether Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene understands historical references to Winston Churchill and Neville Chamberlain, given her criticism of Rep. Mike Johnson’s support for funding Ukraine.

60 billion


Greene had said Johnson was a “[expletive] fool” and “liar” for thinking Republicans backed the $60 billion aid package.



Greene said, “Everywhere I go in my district, everyone is so angry at Mike Johnson. And one guy said it to me like this. He goes, ‘Do they have Mike Johnson’s wife tied up somewhere and have a gun to her head? What is wrong with Mike Johnson? So, for Mike Johnson to actually think that his Republican conference supports sending $60 billion to Ukraine, he is a [expletive] fool, Steve. And he is a liar.”

Greene’s push


Tapper, in discussing Greene’s push to remove Johnson as Speaker, noted Rep. Don Bacon framed the situation as Johnson needing “to have a Churchill, not a Chamberlain right now” in standing up to Putin, as Churchill stood up to Hitler.

Impact on Congress


Tapper said, “Now, normally, I’m reluctant to give a microphone to Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. But she speaks for a big part of the Republican Party, a part that has really had an impact on Congress.”

Resolute stance


Bacon was referring to Churchill’s resolute stance against Nazi Germany compared to Chamberlain’s appeasement.



However, Tapper expressed doubt Greene would understand the World War II allusions, given her rhetoric against supporting Ukraine.

Don Bacon


He added, “Congressman Don Bacon, who I don’t know I would call him moderate but he is certainly sane, he is from a swing district in Nebraska, framed the situation for Speaker John like this, ‘He’s got a gun to his head right now, but we need to have a Churchill, not a Chamberlain right now. He could be on the right side of history.’ I’m not sure that Marjorie Taylor Greene knows who Churchill or Chamberlain are but that’s a World War II allusion to standing up to Putin in this case, and Hitler back then.”

Volodymyr Zelensky


Recently, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky warned that Kyiv’s ability to combat Russia’s invasion is at risk if the United States does not authorize military aid. Despite months of delays in Congress, with tens of billions of dollars in military assistance for Kyiv being held up, the package is encountering opposition from House Republicans.



“It is necessary to specifically tell Congress that if Congress does not help Ukraine, Ukraine will lose the war,” Zelensky said. He emphasized the critical importance of ongoing aid for Ukraine, stating that it would be challenging for the country to survive without additional assistance.

Significant aid


The Ukrainian president has already received significant aid from the U.S. totaling around $113 billion, equating to $900 per American household.

Further aggression


Zelensky highlighted the broader implications, warning that if Ukraine were to lose the war, it could lead to further aggression against other nations.



Despite Russia’s prolonged invasion of Ukraine, which has persisted for over two years, there seems to be no resolution in sight.

Zelensky’s appeal


Zelensky’s appeal for increased support from the U.S. coincided with reports of Russian missile strikes causing casualties in Ukraine.

Missile strikes


In the recent missile strikes on Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city, six individuals lost their lives, and 11 others sustained injuries, as reported by the governor of the Kharkiv region, Oleh Syniehubov.

Inflicted damage


The attacks inflicted damage on various structures including residential buildings, a gas station, a kindergarten, a cafe, a shop, and vehicles in the area.
