Seth Meyer Jumps Bartiromo For Questioning Biden's Relationship With Putin
Fox host Maria Bartiromo blasted Biden for using Putin to broker his Iran Nuclear deal and for having ties to the dictator while applying crushing sanctions to his people. The outrage shouldn't be a partisan debate, but nobody exposes creepy uncle Joe and gets away with it. At least, not while liberal goon Seth Meyer's is on the job.
“right-wing pundits have become increasingly unhinged in their conspiracy theories about the war and Biden's response. Over the weekend, Fox host Maria Bartiromo, one of the most pro-Trump voices on TV, suggested that it was Joe Biden who saw Vladimir Putin as a partner and didn't want to confront him.”
SETH MEYERS: But this fringe, paranoid thinking is not unique to the 2020 election, as we've discovered during Russia's horrific invasion of Ukraine, right-wing pundits have become increasingly unhinged in their conspiracy theories about the war and Biden's response. Over the weekend, Fox host Maria Bartiromo, one of the most pro-Trump voices on TV, suggested that it was Joe Biden who saw Vladimir Putin as a partner and didn't want to confront him.
MARIA BARTIROMO: Some people have told me over the weekend that they feel that at the end of the day, this administration does not see Putin as the enemy, they see him as a partner on many issues. They see him as a partner on climate change, they see him as a partner on -- on the Iran deal. When is this administration going to get serious in telling Vladimir Putin we are done with partnerships? That means no Iran deal, walk away, no more renegotiating on America's behalf, no more products from Russia.
MEYERS: No more products? We've already banned Russian oil, vodka, diamonds, and seafood. I mean, what else is there? "No more products from Russia. No more Russian ballet, no more Russian salad dressing, and no more of those little Russian dolls Biden keeps saying he's going to ban them, but then every time you open one up, there's another one inside when--when--does it end, Joe?” Let's just go back to this part for a minute.
BARTIROMO: Some people have told me over the weekend --
MEYERS All right that sentence right there is how you know you're about to hear some bull[ bleep ] First of all, you're kicking things off with some unsourced weekend gossip that's how my writers start off their Monday morning excuses, "Some people over the weekend told me that if you smash two edibles together, they cancel each other out, but I think they were wrong, and that's why I'm late and all my clothes are wet and wait, these aren't my clothes.
But what on Earth are you talking about? You think Biden sees Putin as a partner? First of all, Trump is the one who called Putin's invasion of Ukraine savvy and genius, and desperately lavishes praise on Putin every chance he gets Trump was clearly the one who saw Putin as a partner, although I'm not sure Putin felt the same way. Based on Putin's face when they were together, Putin saw Trump as a competitor who was way too easy to outsmart. Putin always had the smile of a spelling bee contestant after the other kid got a super hard word.
"Your word is insouciant." "Insouciant. We love insouciant, don't we, people we love it it's a great word. We love it because it starts with an I. We know that and then right after that comes the N, and at that point, at that point, you've basically spelled it. You, and isn't that enough? I feel like, can we just leave it there and get full credit?" [ Buzzer ] And they can't even seem to keep their conspiracy theories straight one day, Biden supposedly sees Putin as a partner, and then next, they claim Biden somehow orchestrated this whole thing as a way to continue accumulating power as COVID subsides.
