So, after Rubio and Daines were told to not post this very important Zoom call on twitter, they did it anyway. Doing so jeopardizes Zelensky. So, why the hell would two senators ignore the order to not do this?? Is it ignorance or anything else at play?


On Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met with U.S. lawmakers over Zoom. It was a grim call. The embattled world leader detailed the increasing aggression from Russian forces, who invaded the neighboring nation a week-and-a-half ago on the orders of its president, Vladimir Putin. Zelensky’s own life is in jeopardy, and to protect him, his people informed those participating to not share anything about it over social media. But two GOP senators didn’t heed that warning.

As per NBC News, Marco Rubio, the oft-controversial senator from Florida who has, unlike some in his party, warned of Putin’s ambitions, and Steve Daines of Maine both posted pictures of Zelensky on the Zoom call to their Twitter accounts. It was exactly what they were told not to do as part of the bipartisan meetings, which had been set up by House leaders Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell. Both posts were met with scorn, with people accusing the two Republican senators of recklessly endangering Zelensky, who has been the subject of assassination plots.

“The Ukrainian Ambassador very intentionally asked each of us on the zoom to NOT share anything on social media during the meeting to protect the security of President Zelenskyy,” tweeted Democratic representative Dean Phillips of Minnesota, in a quote-tweet that included Rubio’s offending tweet. “Appalling and reckless ignorance by two US Senators.”

They're like children, and can't be trusted to resist the impulse to make themselves look important.

Look how far into the call it was. Top center under the “Zoom.”

I bet he makes love fast, too!

I'm sure Russia appreciated the aid and comfort.

This is the reason why, soon after Trump got into office, the Israeli & Dutch stopped sharing sensitive intelligence with us. Both countries had deep operatives outed by Trump & his administration.

Here is me channeling the GQP -

Did they actually break any laws? No? Okay, it's totally fine.

Sad thing though, Cordelier, is after reading the Wiki entry, in today's partisan political divide, May's may not have lost re-election, nor may he have been found guilty of a criminally abuses his position.

That is very sad and unfortunately true.

But be as it may, here's the SOB's grave at Mayo Cemetery #1 in Lancer, KY:

I invite everyone to urinate on it at their leisure in honor of the 10 US Submarines and over 800 sailors he helped to kill in World War II.

Steve Daines is NOT from Maine; he's from Montana.
