Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has survived three assassination attempts as Russia’s invasion of his country rages on, yet Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Steve Daines (R-Mont.) put his life in danger anyway.
Rubio and Daines were part of a group of lawmakers who were in on a Zoom call with Zelenskyy for a briefing on the situation in Ukraine. The lawmakers were specifically asked not to post screenshots of the call to social media in an effort to protect Zelenskyy’s location in case the Russians use them to find him.
But Rubio and Daines ignored the plea and did it anyway. Rubio currently sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee so he should have known better and he probably did but just did not care. He’s a Russian stooge who cannot be trusted in matters of national security or the security of Ukraine and its leaders. And he was rightfully ripped for his actions on Twitter.
The Ukrainian Ambassador very intentionally asked each of us on the zoom to NOT share anything on social media during the meeting to protect the security of President Zelenskyy. Appalling and reckless ignorance by two US Senators. https://t.co/geolhKxbLp

What kind of sick person shares a screenshot of a man who has evaded numerous assassination attempts after being specifically told not to. @marcorubio

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU is trending because Marco Rubio and Steve Daines tweeted photos of their zoom meeting with President Zelenskyy, thus putting his life in even further danger. We know what’s wrong with them. They are Russian assets. @Twitter, delete their accounts.

Republicans have been pretending to support Ukraine since backlash ensued over their open support of Putin, only to get called out for being hypocrites. Rubio’s actions make it clear their support of Ukraine is all an act. There was once a time when Republicans considered the Russians our enemy. Now they are allied with them against freedom and democracy both in the United States and around the world.
