‘Vogue’ Cover Boy Zelenskyy Gets $550M More from Biden, Insults U.S. in Return

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) As thousands of citizens in war-torn Ukraine suffer and die on the front lines of Russia’s invasion, and citizens around the world are battered by food shortages and economic calamity, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy took time out from his chaotic schedule of posing for Vogue magazine and insulting Americans to receive another $550 million from the Biden administration.

The most recent largesse from American taxpayers is the 17th gifting from Biden since the start of the Ukraine/Russia conflict, bringing the total to a staggering $8 billion in so-called “presidential draw-down authority” for materials and “security assistance,” boasted White House national security mouthpiece John Kirby. 

Zelenskyy accepted with what has increasingly become his begrudging manner, which is to say he wants more money, after scoffing at Americans concerned with raging inflation and economic ravages.

During an interview on Piers Morgan Uncensored, Zelenskyy lectured that compared with the battle his country is facing, Americans have it easy.

“Therefore, inflation is nothing,” said the recent recipient of $550 million.

“COVID is nothing,” Zelenskyy scoffed. “Who is thinking about masks and COVID? Who is thinking about inflation? These things are secondary.”

Zelenskyy’s dismissive snub of Americans who are funding his regime drew a scathing rebuke from Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

“Ukrainian leaders aren’t even hiding it any more,” said Carlson, who called Zelenskyy “the Beto O’Rourke of Ukraine” for his shameless photo ops and fawning media coverage.

“They have total contempt for us,” Carlson said. “They just want our money. This is not democracies uniting in solidarity. This is a scam.”

The latest round of funding for Ukraine didn’t play to the American taxpayers footing the bill.

“ANOTHER $550 million to Ukraine?” tweeted Michael Quinn Sullivan, publisher of TexasScorecard. “At this point, we’ve basically purchased Ukraine.”

Zelenskyy took another roasting between cashing America’s checks and playing goofball with leftist actor Ben Stiller when he modeled for Vogue, along with his wife Olena Zelenska, as Russian troops continued their onslaught.

“It’s all pretty insulting to the thousands of Ukrainians who have died and to the US taxpayers who are funding all of this,” Fox’s Carlson said.

Zelenskyy’s antics and attitude might finally be making a dent in his relationship with the Biden administration, which is reportedly growing increasingly skeptical and mistrustful of Ukrainian leadership, despite continuing to dish out hundreds of millions of dollars to the same.

“Privately, U.S. officials are a lot more concerned about Ukraine’s leadership than they are letting on,” wrote New York Times leftist Tom Friedman, based on leaks coming from the administration.

“There is deep mistrust between the White House and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky — considerably more than has been reported,” Friedman wrote.

“And there is funny business going on in Kyiv. On July 17, Zelensky fired his country’s prosecutor general and the leader of its domestic intelligence agency.”
