On Tuesday, prior to leaving Des Moines, President Joe Biden defended his use of the word “genocide” in describing the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“Yes, I called it genocide,” Biden said. “It has become clearer and clearer that Putin is just trying to wipe out the idea of even being — being able to be Ukrainian.

“And the amount — the evidence is mounting. It’s different than it was last week. The — more evidence is coming out of the — literally, the horrible things that the Russians have done in Ukraine. And we’re going to only learn more and more about the devastation.

”And we’ll let the lawyers decide internationally whether or not it qualifies, but it sure seems that way to me.”


  1. Is this the first time this Administration is telling the truth or is it more lies? Are the Russians just evil monsters who kill for blood sport? Would our mainstream media lie to us about this? Why are our lawmakers in a frenzy about the Ukraine but couldn’t care less about our southern border?
