During Monday’s broadcast of “Hannity” on Fox News Channel, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said President Joe Biden’s statement that he was referring to helping train Ukrainian troops while trying to correct previous statements he made was either a false statement or Biden is revealing classified information, and the situation is “like Mr. Magoo as president, where every time he explains something, it becomes worse and worse and we have nukes pointed at each other.”
Cruz said, “I have to say, Sean, looking at Biden’s stunt of gaffes, it’s five gaffes in 48 hours, I can’t remember ever seeing an American president mess things up so badly, calling for a regime change and then reminding that of suggesting that America would launch chemical weapons to go back to suggesting that the 82nd Airborne would be sent to Ukraine to remind of that he also said that sanctions never work, although their talking points have been for months that the threat of sanctions is precisely why he waived sanctions on Nord Stream 2.”
He continued, “And I have to say there’s a fifth gaffe… when Biden was trying to explain all of this, he said, well, the explanation is that the Americans are training Ukrainian troops in Poland. What? Alright, if so, I don’t know. But if so, it’s probably classified, and he may be explaining classified secrets on national television. Sean, it’s like Mr. Magoo as president, where every time he explains something, it gets worse and worse and we have nukes pointed at each other. It’s incredibly dangerous, this kind of presidential weakness.
