NBC Historian Demands To Know Why Some Members Of Congress Weren’t Applauding Zelenskyy’s Speech

This week, Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed Congress. Most of the lawmakers in attendance clapped like seals through the whole speech but some didn’t.

NBC historian Michael Beschloss demanded to know why these lawmakers didn’t clap.

This is the sort of thinking that was common in Soviet Russia.

Zelenskyy traveled to the U.S. on Wednesday, his first trip outside of Ukraine since Russia invaded the country in early 2022. During his trip abroad, Zelensky met with President Joe Biden and addressed a joint session of Congress, seeking continued support U.S. and funding of the war with Russia.

Most members of Congress supported Zelenskyy’s message as he was given a standing ovation for his speech. Although Beschloss seemed very curious about who in Congress may not have been enthusiastic enough about the speech or providing further support for the eastern European leader.

On Wednesday evening, the historian tweeted, “For any Members of Congress who refused to clap for Zelenskyy, we need to know from them exactly why.”
