GOP Launches Attack INSIDE Washington DC

Multiple GOP hardliners refused to clap or stand when Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed Congress.

Some GOP members even refused to attend the address.

"Reps. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo.; Matt Gaetz, R-FL, both refused to clap for Zelenskyy when he entered the floor for his speech, and Andrew Clyde, R-FL, also refused to participate in at least one ovation for the president," reports Fox.

GOP Refuses To Cooperate

Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY, did not attend the speech, even though he was Washington at the time.

"I’m in DC but I will not be attending the speech of the Ukrainian lobbyist," Massie wrote via Twitter.

"While there were a handful of nay-sayers, the vast majority of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle welcomed Zelenskyy with open arms," reported Fox. "Throngs of lawmakers reached out to shake his hand or touch his shoulder as he entered the chamber Wednesday evening."

"Nevertheless, the attitudes of Boebert and Gaetz shows a very real divide within the GOP regarding whether and how to proceed with further aid to Ukraine," Fox reports. "House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who is likely to be Speaker after January 3, has argued that the U.S. should not give Ukraine a 'blank check.'"
