Right-wing pastor and Trump supporter Franklin Graham asked people to pray for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin on Twitter while glaringly refusing to do the same for President Joe Biden, resulting in significant backlash.

Russian troops are now invading Eastern Ukraine after months of tensions over Ukraine’s desire to join NATO and make economic and military alliances with Western Europe and the United States.

But instead of condemning Putin and backing Biden, Graham asked for prayers for Putin by name as the right-wing idolatry of the Russian leader continues.

“Pray for President Putin today,” Graham wrote. “This may sound like a strange request, but we need to pray that God would work in his heart so that war could be avoided at all cost. May God give wisdom to the leaders involved in these talks & negotiations, as well as those advising them.”

Russia has been attacking our nation for years, including by interfering in our elections. They have Russian stooges in the Republican Party and several GOP-backing organizations. And Donald Trump himself served as Putin’s puppet in the White House. Republicans even support Putin more than they do their own president when that president is a Democrat. It’s disgusting and shows just how un-American Republicans are.

Americans on Twitter shamed Graham.

Conservatives in this country are actively rooting for Putin and against democracy. They deserve to be shunned and shamed.
