Fox News host Tucker Carlson eviscerated Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for making further outrageous demands for financial aid while the United States economy, and the American people, are suffering.

Zelensky – despite getting a greenlight from Congress for an additional $12 billion in aid to Ukraine just weeks ago, along with having the Senate pass a $40 billion aid package in May on top of a $14 billion package in March – is not content with what he has seen thus far.

Speaking to finance ministers at meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington earlier this week, he insisted Ukraine would need an additional $55 billion in aid to combat budget and infrastructure matters brought about by the Russian invasion.

“At this time, we have two key financial needs of the country,” he said. “That’s $38 billion to make up for the deficit of our budget for next year and other $17 billion that were verified by the World Bank and needed to rebuild the critical infrastructure.”

The quicker the money is funneled to Ukraine, Zelensky said, “the sooner we’ll come to an end to the Russian war.”

Tucker Carlson Slams ‘Troll’ Zelensky

Tucker Carlson played a clip of Zelensky making his demands for more money and referred to him as “the celebrity-endorsed dictator of the most corrupt nation in Europe.”

“Zelenskyy is now shaking down our cowardly Congress for more cash at the very moment our own economy and our own borders are collapsing,” he prefaced the clip.

After playing the video, Carlson really let loose on Zelensky.

“Some uppity foreigner in a T-shirt demanding money for his critical economic needs. We have critical economic needs too, buddy,” Carlson railed. “Who are you, troll? Go away.”

He added: “Since when does that guy have a claim on our Treasury?”

‘Up Yours, Buddy’

Tucker Carlson continued to tear into Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for his continued pressure on the United States to finance his nation’s budget issues.

“As our economy degrades and our border is gone, that guy’s lecturing us with some Christmas list, like, ‘I want this, that, and I want a bicycle,'” Carlson mused. 

“‘You better send it quick,'” he added. “Really? Up yours, buddy.”

The entire premise of Carlson’s monologue orbits around far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s support of the Ukraine war effort.

During a town hall meeting in the Bronx Wednesday, AOC was interrupted by protesters and one-time supporters who were upset for the same reason.

A video of the exchange shows the protesters confronting Ocasio-Cortez for her vote to fund weapons transfers to Ukraine.

“You ran as an outsider! Yet, you’ve been voting to start this war in Ukraine,” one protester shouts. “Why are you playing with the lives of American citizens? You’re playing with our lives!”

Carlson referred to AOC as a “sorority girl narcissist” and pointed out her hypocrisy in running as an outsider candidate who vowed to “end the forever war” while now being a lawmaker supporting Ukraine and pushing the United States to the brink of nuclear war.

“Pulling back from a war that will hurt the country, why would she do that?” he critiqued. “She doesn’t like the country.”

“She doesn’t care about the people she claims to represent. She has contempt for them … They are merely the tools of her personal advancement. They’re not her real constituency,” he added.

“Her real constituency is NBC News, the editors at Teen Vogue, and Volodymyr Zelensky.”

Apparently, Zelensky is the number one priority of lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. They’ve forgotten about the American people and they’ve forgotten about our own military while supporting Ukraine’s.

Last month the Army told active-duty American soldiers to go on food stamps if they were unable to afford food thanks to inflation. 

Food stamps for American soldiers, endless billions for Ukraine. This is your country now. Lawmakers serving as puppets for a troll who, as Carlson suggests, needs to go away.
