MSNBC: ‘Biden First President Since Lincoln to Visit Front Lines Without American Troops’

On Monday, President Joe Biden took a surprise trip to Kyiv, Ukraine to offer another $500 million in aid to the war-torn country. The next day, he gave a speech from Warsaw, Poland.

During his address, he declared that “Kyiv stands strong, Kyiv stands proud, it stands tall, and most importantly, it stands free.”

On Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski gushed over the mediocre speech, that was full of stuttering and garbled thoughts.

Brzezinski exclaimed, “my gosh,” as Scarborough called it an “inspiring day” watching Biden walk through the Ukrainian capital.

“I drew immediate parallels to JFK in Berlin, Reagan at the Brandenburg gate saying ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!’” Scarborough replied. “Of course, the danger was far greater for Joe Biden because he’s the first president since Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War to go to basically a front line without American troops supporting and dominating that area.”

Is this a joke? First president to go to the front line? That’s hilarious. For one, we are not even at war with Russian, therefore this is not our fight.

For two, did he forget about how former President Donald Trump met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in 2019, and became the first sitting United States president to step foot in the country? He did not have the military there with him.


Scarborough referred to Biden’s speech as “just remarkable” and recalled the framing of “western democracy versus Russian tyranny, individual freedom versus a tyrant’s totalitarianism.”

“I must say, for this former Republican and old cold warrior, this was — this was just about as good as it gets,” he added. “For those of us that believe that western democracy and that Jeffersonian democracy and that the freedoms that we believe in in this country and that we strive to — to live up to, even when we fall short, this is — this was the good stuff.”

Just for reference, this is the speech he is declaring was remarkable:

Partial translation: “Would be you, would we be, would we the, all of our allies would be united, or divided?”
