Imagine one of the biggest foreign policy events in years and both the US President and the US Secretary of State didn’t have a clue it was going to happen.  What does that tell you?

JUST IN – Ukraine to become a #NATO member state, announces President Zelensky on Twitter.  

UPDATE – US Secretary of State Blinken on Zelensky’s claim about Ukraine joining NATO: No, “nothing has changed.” (AP)

If Biden and Blinken were cut out of the [Ukraine entering NATO] negotiations there’s nothing they could do to stop it. Now watching to see if Ukraine joins NATO despite Blinken saying nothing is happening.

I pity the sign language person now trying to follow Biden’s words and sign them.

“What I”m saying to them is..watch me…I’m not saying anything to them….” wut?

NOW – Biden finally appeared 2.5 hours late, held a short speech, and called a few selected reporters from a prepared list of names. Press conference concluded after first question on Ukraine.

WE REPEAT:

Imagine one of the biggest foreign policy events in years and both the US President and the US Secretary of State didn’t have a clue it was going to happen.  What does that tell you?
