White House Deputy Spokesman Andrew Bates shared a HuffPost article entitled “How Ukraine shuddering, Donald Trump called Vladimir Putin’s invasion “quite reasonable” when comparing the former US president to a Russian autocrat.
“Two nauseating, scary pigs who hate what America stands for, and whose every action is due to them [sic] their own weakness and insecurity, rubbing their mouths and celebrating how innocent people are losing their lives, ”Bates tweeted.
The HuffPost article stressed comments Trump made on Tuesday at the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, in which he said Russia’s strategy was “brilliant” and that Putin was “pretty smart” for trying to seize the country “for $ 2 sanctions.”
The comments came two days before Putin launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on Thursday, launching airstrikes and shelling on cities and bases as civilians desperately tried to flee the country or hide in subway subway stations.
It is estimated that at least 40 Ukrainian servicemen and 10 civilians have died as Russia continues to invade the country, and that number is expected to grow.
The media immediately drew attention to Bates’ tweet, noting that rude language was unusual for Biden’s White House.
