Provoked by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who saw an independent Ukraine’s shift toward democracy and potential expansion of NATO as a threat to his power in the region. Putin’s underestimation of Ukraine’s counter-offensive and global support rallied by Pres. Joe Biden has resulted in a weakening of Putin’s power over the Russian people and the region.

Twice-impeached 45th POTUS and wannabe authoritarian dictator who orchestrated a violent insurrection to overthrow the US Government in order to remain president despite losing re-election to Joseph R. Biden by 7,059,547 votes.
Ron DeSantis
Ron DeSantis
The 2nd term Governor of Florida and reason that the state has one of the highest death rates per capita from COVID-19. When Ron isn't convincing people to congregate unmasked during a pandemic, he's practicing his mini-me Trump impersonations both legislatively and physically by arresting Black voters his administration approved to vote and tormenting the LGBTQ community in hopes of one day being America's favorite authoritarian. Never. Going. To. Happen.
