Joe Biden slammed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as having “shamelessly violated” United Nations principles during a speech to the body on Wednesday, hours after Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to threaten using nuclear weapons against Kyiv.
“Russia has shamelessly violated the core tenets of the U.N. charter — no more important than the clear prohibition against countries taking the territory of their neighbors by force,” Biden told the United Nations General Assembly. “If nations can pursue their imperial ambitions without consequences, then we put at risk everything this very institution stands for.”
In a roughly 30-minute speech, Biden said that the war in Ukraine was about “extinguishing Ukraine’s right to exist as a state… and Ukraine’s right to exist as a people,” calling out Putin for making “irresponsible nuclear threats.”

But are the illegals eating well? That’s all that matter.
As he ended his speech he did what seems to be his common practice lately, he embarrassed our country on the world stage once again!
Below you can see Biden as he ends his speech at the UN by saying “Thank you for your tolerance listening to me.”

World leaders decided to applaud Biden’s signs of weakness, we are talking about the same group that laughed at Trump when he said Germany’s increasing dependence on Russian energy was going to be a problem.
