Tucker Carlson and Lauren Boebert praised by Russian state TV
Western Colorado House Rep. Lauren Boebert has a new fan — the Kremlin in Russia.
Russian state TV praised her last weekend for her refusal to stand and applaud Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during his talk to Congress last week.
For the last ten months, Zelenskyy has been leading his country against a vicious, deadly and unprovoked war on his country by Russian President Vladimir Putin, initiated last February 24.
Ukraine is a democracy. Ukrainians are fighting to keep Russia from annexing their country, so they can keep their freedom and preserve their democracy. Russia is currently a functioning dictatorship under Putin.
Human Rights Watch has documented at least 50,000 incidents of war crimes allegedly committed by Russian soldiers against the people of Ukraine, including torture, mutilation, rape, gang rape, executions, looting, use of ballistic missiles to target innocent civilians and destroy key infrastructure like power plants, bridges and water systems.
During her campaigns, Boebert has repeatedly claimed that she “stands for freedom.” Her display of disrespect for Zelenskyy and the praise she’s earned from the Kremlin because of it indicates that’s far from the truth.
