Fox News host Mark Levin hammered President Joe Biden for his failure to give Ukraine the help they need to defend themselves.
“Tuesday after President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech, conservative talker Mark Levin criticized Biden on policy grounds for his handling of the Russian invasion of Ukraine during an appearance on FNC’s ‘Hannity,'” reports Breitbart News.
“Levin pointed to the slow-moving process of arming the Ukrainian government to defend itself and the reluctance to ramp up U.S. energy production in the wake of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion,” reported Breitbart News.
“You know, Sean, the Ukrainian people are very, very courageous,” Levin said. “They have a president who will be remembered for a thousand years, Zelensky. I’m hearing a lot of happy talk on our network and a lot of places about how the Ukrainians are holding out and so forth and so on. Folks, don’t be fooled. The Ukrainians need more weapons. The President of Ukraine has said it over and over again, Zelensky, what he needs. They need to take out their helicopters. They need to take out these tanks.”
“They’re not getting the weapons they need, and they need more,” Levin added. “That doesn’t mean the Ukrainians won’t fight and fight hard. Obviously, they are. It doesn’t mean the Russians have been the most competent army on the face of the earth, they’re not. But this government, our government has been shameful. You talk about oil. I’ve said last week and I’ll say it again. Joe Biden has put more sanctions on our oil companies and he has on the Russian oil companies. What kind of fool does that?”
Then, Levin brought the fire…
“So yes, prayer, yes, support them. Now, give them the damn arms that they need to defend themselves before it’s too late. That’s number one. Number two, this guy Biden gets up there and he says buy American, buy American, buy American and the best line of the night came from my wife when she said, ‘Buy American? You’re not even letting us buy American oil. We’re buying Russian oil, we’re buying Saudi oil, we’re buying everybody — go union, union, you’re killing union jobs in the oil patch.’ This speech tonight was a rambling speech in one word, it was monotonous. Or maybe another word, supercilious. It’s as if they added the Ukraine piece at the front, and then we had the Build Back — whatever that damn thing is at the back end, where it goes on and on and on with the Bernie Sanders agenda,” Levin said.
