Liz Cheney Slams Marjorie Taylor Greene Over Her Defense of Putin: ‘Pathetic and UnAmerican’

In the ongoing debate over U.S. involvement in Ukraine, tensions flared between former Rep. Liz Cheney and current Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, highlighting deep divisions within the Republican Party.

As the war in Ukraine continues, the U.S. Senate has approved a substantial foreign aid package aimed at supporting Kyiv, which includes billions in aid. 

The House of Representatives is poised to deliberate on this package amidst mixed opinions within the GOP.

Marjorie Taylor Greene expressed vehement opposition to further U.S. aid for Ukraine, critiquing it as harmful to American interests and the Ukrainian people during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s show.

‘”This whole thing is the most repulsive, disgusting thing happening and the American people are the ones writing the check,” the congresswoman said. 

She added, “And I absolutely hate everybody here that is doing this. I mean, I seriously hate them for doing this to the American people and paying for the murder and slaughter of people in Ukraine.”

Greene continued, “Vladimir Putin has not said he wants to go march across Europe and take Europe, and the reality is Ukraine is not even a NATO member nation.”

Liz Cheney, known for her critical stance against party lines aligned with Donald Trump, responded to Greene’s remarks by accusing her of parroting Kremlin propaganda, questioning whether Greene’s actions were naive or deliberately misleading.

Cheney wrote, “Once again Moscow Marge is busy deploying her Kremlin talking points. Is she a useful idiot or is she intentionally spreading Putin’s lies? Either way it’s pathetic and unAmerican.”

The dispute occurs against the backdrop of Russia’s extensive military aggression towards Ukraine, initiated by President Vladimir Putin in February 2022, which has significantly strained East-West relations.

Cheney’s critique of Greene underscores a broader conflict within the Republican Party over its foreign policy direction, particularly concerning American military and financial commitments overseas.

Greene’s comments reflect a growing faction within the GOP that is skeptical of international engagements and critical of the established U.S. foreign policy consensus, advocating a more isolationist approach.

Steve Bannon supported Greene’s perspective, suggesting that direct negotiations with Putin could lead to a resolution, whereas former State Department official Joel Rubin warned of the dangers of withdrawing support for Ukraine.

Amid these domestic debates, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has made direct appeals to the U.S. Congress, stressing the critical nature of American support for Ukraine’s survival and the broader implications for global security.

Liz Cheney compared the current situation to the Cold War, implying that failing to support Ukraine could have dire consequences reminiscent of past geopolitical mistakes.

The fiery exchange between Cheney and Greene not only highlights the ideological divides within the U.S. but also the global implications of their policy positions. 

As debates continue, the international community watches closely to see how U.S. policies will unfold under these complex and contentious circumstances.
