Pelosi celebrates Biden’s ‘brilliance’ in response to Russia even as Ukraine burns

House Speaker Nancy Speaker reportedly said Friday that it’s “important” for the public to recognize President Joe Biden’s “brilliance” in his handling of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“I think it’s really important for people to understand the brilliance with which President Biden is conducting this. This is a man served decades as chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee. He knows the arena. He knows the personalities,” she told reporters, according to Fox News’ Chad Pergram.

The remarks came roughly an hour before the U.S. president reportedly jetted off for another mini-vacation in Delaware.


Pelosi’s remarks were likewise made amid reports that the situation in Ukraine has grown so dire that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has banned men between the ages of 18 and 60 from leaving the country, ordering them to instead be drafted to fight.

Not that an order was necessarily even needed. Former Ukrainian first lady Kateryna Yushchenko shared a photo on social media late Thursday of an 80-year-old man who’d voluntarily enlisted to fight the invading Russians.

“Someone posted a photo of this 80-year-old who showed up to join the army, carrying with him a small case with 2 t-shirts, a pair of extra pants, a toothbrush and a few sandwiches for lunch. He said he was doing it for his grandkids,” she wrote.


Ukrainian families have meanwhile been crowding subway stations in a desperate bid to avoid being bombed or crushed to death.

Pelosi’s remarks came a few hours after Zelenskyy delivered a speech decrying Western leaders like Biden for “watching from afar” and not doing “enough” to stop Russian President Vladimir Putin from invading his country and killing his people.

“This morning we are defending our state alone, as we did yesterday. The world’s most powerful forces are watching from afar. Did yesterday’s sanctions convince Russia? We hear in our sky and see on our earth that this is not enough. Foreign troops are still trying to become more active in our territory,” he said.

“Only the solidarity and determination of Ukrainians can preserve our freedom and protect the state. The army, border guards, the National Guard, the police, intelligence, the Territorial Defense Forces. … The fate of Ukraine depends only on Ukrainians. No one but ourselves will control our lives.”

While he didn’t name names, even The Daily Beast — a far-left outlet — saw the writing on the wall:

Note what Zelensky had said about the sanctions: “We hear in our sky and see on our earth that this is not enough.”

Indeed, Biden has been facing widespread criticism, even from his usual media enablers, for his refusal to drop the hammer sanction-wise.

And so given all that’s happening, and given the U.S. president’s “weak” response, many in the public were befuddled by Pelosi’s calls for them to recognize the president’s supposed “brilliance.”


But Pelosi’s certainly not the only member of the left who’s celebrating the U.S. president’s supposed “brilliance” as Ukraine literally burns.
