‘Kiss My Ass’: David Cameron Gets Short Shrift From Marjorie Taylor Greene After Ukraine Funding Plea

The British Foreign Secretary, David Cameron, has stirred controversy by drawing parallels to the appeasement of Adolf Hitler while urging the GOP in the United States to approve a multi-billion dollar funding package for Ukraine. In his direct plea to American politicians on Tuesday, Cameron emphasized the need for Congress to support Ukraine with $95.3 billion (£75 billion) in the ongoing conflict against Russia.

This lobbying effort, however, provoked a strong reaction from Marjorie Taylor Greene, a contentious member of the House of Representatives associated with the Donald Trump-supporting MAGA wing of the GOP. When questioned by James Matthews of Sky News, who framed Cameron’s comments as equating her refusal to vote for Ukraine funding to being an appeaser to Hitler, Taylor Greene dismissed the comparison.

“I really don’t care what David Cameron has to say,” she retorted. “I think that’s rude name-calling, and I don’t appreciate that type of language. David Cameron needs to worry about his own country, and frankly, he can kiss my ass.”

Taking an unconventional approach, David Cameron utilized an article on The Hill, a Washington DC website, to implore Congress to provide increased funding for Ukraine. In his message, he highlighted the historical lessons shared between the United Kingdom and the United States, emphasizing the dangers of capitulating to European tyrants who seek to alter borders through force.

Cameron expressed his concerns, stating, “I do not want us to exhibit the weakness demonstrated against Hitler in the 1930s. History has shown that yielding to such aggression only emboldens the aggressor, leading to greater costs in terms of lives to halt their advances.”
