White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates slammed former President  Trump for praising Russian dictator President Putin.

“Two nauseating, fearful pigs who hate what America stands for and whose every action is driven by their their own weakness and insecurity, rubbing their snouts together and celebrating as innocent people lose their lives,’ Bates tweeted from his official government account Thursday morning.

This is on the heels of Trump repeatedly praising the Russian leader, saying his invasion of Ukraine was ‘pretty smart’ and calling him a ‘genius.’

Meanwhile, innocent Ukrainians are losing their lives and families hid in the subways to protect themselves from the shelling. Officials in the besieged country say the death toll counts in the hundreds — and the war has just started.
