Marjorie Taylor Green slammed a resolution brought by South Carolina GOP Congressman Joe Wilson to display a statue of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky at the Capitol.
Wilson’s resolution declares the Board of Fine Arts responsible for obtaining a statue of Zelensky “for display in the House of Representatives Wing of the United States Capitol” in a “permanent location.”
It wasn’t embarrassing enough to see Vice President Kamala Harris and then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fly the Ukrainian flag during a special joint session of Congress last month. Wilson was just a forerunner.
The resolution has zero co-sponsors and has been referred to the House Committee on House Administration.
If Zelenskyy can join the effort as a co-sponsor, we’re confident he will. They can pay for the bust themselves using the money they come out with your salary What a bargain.
If you’re a Republican but you sponsor legislation to put a statue of Zelensky in the US Capitol, you’re a pathetic RINO.
I am looking at you @Rep JoWilson.

The question here is, how did Joe Wilson beat the Democrats on Volodymyr Zelensky’s bust in the Capitol? How is that not Wilson and other Ukraine First Republicans, the dearly departed Adam Kinzinger or ‘conservatives are the real terrorists’ Don Crenshaw?
Wilson’s resolution drew a harsh response from Representative Green (R-GA).
“Of course not!” she wrote on Twitter. “We serve America, not Ukraine!”
You’d like to think so, but reality dictates that our last Congress will surely serve Ukraine more than the American people.
Here’s hoping this session of Congress is different.
We serve America not Ukraine!

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) also seemed to rule out the idea of prominently displaying a statue of the Ukrainian president in the Capitol.
“Wasn’t $100+ billion enough for Ukraine?” He quipped.
Yes, chances are slim to none that this will be enough for Zelensky and his drooling disciples in Congress.
There is now a House resolution that seeks to put a display of Zelenskyy’s head in the US Capitol.
Was $100+ billion not enough for Ukraine?

Ukrainian President Tucker Carlson once called the Ukrainian president a “troll” about Zelensky’s proposed bust in the Capitol, repeatedly “shaking” Congress for more money.
“You’re seeing some very good people in Washington making some dumb statements because they’re infected with this brain virus,” Carlson said.
“So again, members of Congress who are decent people are now trying to spend your money on monuments to foreign leaders in the U.S. Capitol,” he said. “That’s crazy.”

Crazy, yes. But we saw stranger things in the Capitol.
At the same venue, Democrats, in Liberation Hall, paid tribute to another false hero in George Floyd, who took a knee for about nine minutes while playing Kente clothes.

Just a complete clown show.
Last year Democrats wanted to build a memorial and educational exhibit for the Jan. 6 riots at the Capitol.
The Capital Remembrance Act, as it is known, “serves as a memorial to the heroic law enforcement officers who lost their lives and reminds future generations that our democracy is only as strong as our will to uphold it,” the representative said. Jason Crow introduced the bill.
The Act has 93 co-sponsors.
How many will sign the resolution to bust Zelenskyy?
