House Dems Erupt Into ‘Ukraine First’ Chant and Wave Ukrainian Flags After Passing $60 Billion Foreign Aid Bill

Numerous Democratic members of the House of Representatives celebrated the passing of $95 billion in foreign aid on Saturday by waving Ukrainian flags.

Conservative Republican members of Congress stood and watched as their predominately Democratic colleagues raucously applauded the $60 billion Ukraine aid bill’s passage by shouting “Ukraine! Ukraine! Ukraine!’ and waving the yellow-and-blue flags.

The final vote on the bill was 101 Republicans voting ‘yea’ and 112 voting ‘nay,’ while all Democrats present voted for the Ukraine aid bill.

As reported by Fox News, “In a dramatic moment toward the end of the vote, Democrats began passing around Ukrainian flags — in violation of House protocol, according to the lawmaker presiding over the vote, Rep. Marc Molinaro. The left side of the aisle exploded in cheers when the timer on the vote reached zero, earning admonishment from Molinaro, who told them the flag-waving was in violation of the rules and called it ‘inappropriate,’ to which Democrats jeered.”

The House members celebrating the bill’s passage also shouted “Ukraine! Ukraine! Ukraine!”

Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) expressed disdain for the bill’s passage.

“All Democrats waiving Ukrainian flags on your House floor when the bill passed sending another 60B of your treasure to fund the war machine,” Higgins remarked. “100% deficit money. Borrowed on the backs of your children. Wake up America.”

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) also remarked on the breach of House protocol.

“Ukrainian flags fly in the chamber of the UNITED STATES House of Representatives as they vote to send more of your hard-earned money to a corrupt foreign regime. And just like that they shout ‘UKRAINE! UKRAINE!’ while happily working to secure Ukraine’s borders, not ours,” the senator commented.

Senator Eric Schmitt (R-MO) reacted to the “Ukraine First” eruption on the House floor.

“Ukrainian flags fly as they chant Ukraine! Ukraine! in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives,” the senator said. “America’s border isn’t secure but they voted to send tens of billions more to secure Ukraine’s. This is what Ukraine First, America Last looks like.”
