Now this takes the “I support the current thing” meme to a whole new level. Supposed South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson is so enamored with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy that he wants a bust of him in the House wing of the United States Capitol.
This no doubt makes other members of the Uniparty extraordinarily jealous. Dan Crenshaw is probably punching walls wondering why he did not think of this first.
What could possibly happen next, flying the Ukrainian flag in the Capitol? Oh wait, that already occurred.
Anyway, here’s the story in The Washington Times about Wilson hailing his hero Zelenskyy:
A Republican congressman is proposing to place a bust of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in the House wing of the U.S. Capitol.
Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina filed a resolution earlier this week directing the Fine Arts Board of the U.S. House of Representatives to obtain a bust of Mr. Zelenskyy for display.
The board has authority over all works of art and historical objects displayed on the House wing of the U.S. Capitol and the associated office buildings.
Mr. Wilson, who has served in Congress since 2001, is a senior member of both the House Armed Services and Foreign Affairs committees. Earlier this year, he was tapped to lead an internal GOP task force focusing on national security.
A staunch conservative, who came under fire for shouting “you lie” at former President Obama during a 2009 address to Congress, Mr. Wilson has emerged as a strong supporter of Ukraine
In December, he told the Charleston Post and Courier that Ukraine’s fight against Russian aggression reminded him of the American Revolution.
Going from bold truth-teller to sycophant of a corruptdictator definitely qualifies as a sad arc. The Swamp literally does drain even supposed maverick politicians.
Message to Wilson: Zelenskyy is not going to date you. Of course, he is perfectly content to take billions of additional U.S. taxpayer dollars.
We need Congressional members willing to put America first and must remove politicians subservient to foreign leaders and special interests. Joe Wilson certainly qualifies for removal from office.
