Russian Politician Offered To Fly His Party To FL To Celebrate Trump’s Acquittal
Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader of Russia’s pro-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party, suggested last week that he should fly members of his party to Florida — joined by President Vladimir Putin — to celebrate President Donald Trump’s acquittal by the U.S. Senate, according to The Hill.
“I congratulate you on your victory in the Senate and the failure of vile and false accusations against you,” Zhirinovsky tweeted on Saturday. “Today you are the model leader of a huge modern state and the strongest president the US have ever had.”
In a subsequent tweet, the Russian politician said he and members of his party were “ready to fly to the USA to raise glass to your success,” where he suggested they would buy Trump dinner at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
The Hill reported that Zhirinovsky also denounced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Republican Senator Mitt Romney (Utah), the latter of whom was the sole member of the GOP to vote for Trump’s removal from office.
"You are a brave man and you can make America great again. We are outraged by the actions of Mrs. Pelosi. Her behavior was inappropriate. It was clever of you to refuse shaking her hand," Zhirinovsky continued, referring to Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
"We were shocked by the treacherous act of the republican Romney, who voted against you," he added.
