Did y'all watch President Zelenskyy's address to the US Congress? Quite moving. He's calling for offensive weapons, which I wholeheartedly agree with.
Anyhow, from Gaetz and Boebert “blow through” Capitol security and refuse screenings — then diss Zelenskyy speech
Two Capitol Police officers stopped the pair and informed them they needed to go through a metal detector before entering the chamber, according to the report. Gaetz was heard "briefly questioning the officer's direction, before turning away."
"Mr. Gaetz? Mr. Gaetz?!" an officer said as Gaetz and Boebert decided to "blow through" the screening and enter the chamber anyway, according to the report.
[So why did security allow them to pass through anyhow? - Donna]
Boebert and Gaetz, who oppose additional aid to Ukraine and called to investigate aid that was already allocated, were later seen sitting and checking their phones during a standing ovation for the Ukrainian leader.
The pair repeatedly sat through other parts of Zelenskyy's speech that drew standing ovations.
Though Boebert and Gaetz were repeatedly captured by the cameras, other Republicans declined to stand for the Ukrainian leader, including Clyde, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; Rep. Diana Harshbarger, R-Tenn.; Rep. Warren Davidson, R-Ohio; and Rep. Michael Cloud, R-Texas, according to Axios' Andrew Solender, though they applauded parts of his speech. Other far-right lawmakers who oppose additional aid to Ukraine, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., did not even attend the speech.
