Senator Marsha Blackburn Tries to Rewrite History and Undermine President Biden’s Leadership on Russia
February 24, 2022
Senator Marsha Blackburn spent her morning on Fox Business pushing the same lies about President Biden’s leadership while trying to rewrite history.
Instead of acknowledging President Biden’s leadership as he stands with our allies in the face of Russian aggression and implements strong sanctions, Senator Blackburn is praising defeated former president Donald Trump, who emboldened Russia, sided with Putin over America’s intelligence community, and undermined NATO.
Senator Blackburn has a lot of nerve praising Donald Trump’s leadership as he simultaneously praises an authoritarian who launched an unprovoked war, and after he spent four years coddling Putin.
