[See NewsBusters for more.] President Biden flip-flopped during his Thursday press conference in Brussels when he declared that sanctions were never meant to deter Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine despite constant proclamations from the administration to the contrary. On The Lead, CNN chief political analyst and global affairs analyst Susan Glasser reacted to Biden’s dishonesty by talking about former President Trump.
Guest host Pamela Brown simply asked Glasser to comment on the reversal, “Susan, quickly, President Biden got a little testy today when he was asked about why sanctions haven't—haven’t-- been a deterrent. What did you make of—of-- his answer to that and the pushback that he gave saying that was never the intent?”
