Mr. Zelenskyy Goes To Washington

Clay Jones of Claytoonz was spot on yesterday, as he most always is …

As Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky virtually addressed Congress today, I wondered, “What did they do with Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, and Madison Cawthorn? For that matter, how dare any member of the Republican Party attend who had refused to impeach Donald Trump for his attempt to extort the Ukrainian president.

During President Biden’s State of the Union address to Congress, Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene heckled and cackled like mean girls throughout his speech. In order not to risk further embarrassment to his party, or even worse, the nation, did Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy lock them in the congressional basement? There’s no real reason for the most ridiculous members of Congress to attend anyway since none of them have ever expressed any interest in doing their jobs. Did Marco Rubio tweet a selfie with Zelensky on the monitor behind him to show he’s not…

  1. Quote applicable to this neurotic pressure masking as members of the Republican Party:

      • If any of the smarter ones tries to pull the ‘He overthrew Parliament by a military coup’ line; just reply:
        ‘6th January 2021?’
        ‘But that wuz ordinary people’ comes the cry
        ‘2,500 folk many waving Confederate Flags. Does not a nation make,’ should be your response.
        ‘Trump had more votes than any other Republican candidate!’ they howl.
        ‘Biden had more,’ quiet response.
        If they keep on, use the equivalent of a Daisy Cutter bomb….
        ‘Well, go tell your woes President Putin, I’m sure he’ll listen to you,’

        • Thanks! You obviously have experience in this very same conversation! ‘Ordinary people’ they say? I think not … they were the worst of the worst this country has to offer! Ah yes, now I will welcome such a conversation!

  2. The art and wit of Clay Jones always rises to the occasion and this was no exception! I was mesmerized watching President Volodymyr Zelensky’s live address to Congress yesterday and overcome by tears during the shared video. I remain in awe of the valor displayed by President Zelensky and the people of Ukraine in the face of Putin’s reprehensible invasion and destruction. They add new depth to the word “courage”! “Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.” – G.K. Chesterton. WHAK!! Thank-you!

    • I fully agree … I wish I had just a small percentage of the talent Mr. Jones has! Not only his artistic skill, but his understanding of situations and his ability to opine wisely. You’re right … he has cleaned up his language some … probably not his idea! Yes, Zelenskyy and the people of Ukraine are among the most courageous of our time. Perhaps the people of this country would be as brave if we were suddenly attacked, but somehow I doubt it. WHAK!!!
