Dancin' Dave Continues Beating The War Drums With Putin On Meet The Press


This makes two weeks in a row for David Gregory. Last week on Meet the Press, he was helping Sen. Bob Corker with the tough talk on Russia and asking if he's learning the "right lessons" by our lack of military aggression towards him. This Sunday the viewers were treated to him badgering Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken about whether there's going to be a "military cost" for Russia following their invasion of Ukraine.

GREGORY: Is there a military cost if Putin moves forward? Is there any military cost extracted by the United States or by NATO?

BLINKEN: Look, what we're tying to do is deescalate this crisis, not escalate it. We don't see a military confrontation coming of this, but what we do see is increasing support for Ukraine. We have a program now with the international community that will get $37 or 38 billion to Ukraine over two years. We have worked to isolate Russia and we're reassuring our partners in NATO.
