The silence emerging from the Perussuomalaiset (PS)* politicians are highly revealing. Their populist autocratic mentor, former President Donald Trump, is history and no longer in power.
While only PS MEP Laura Huhtasaari and PS MP Veikko Vallin were some of the very few politicians of the party to comment on the transfer of power, Jussi Halla-aho, Riikka Purra, Ville Tavio, Mauri Peltokangas, Juha Mäenpää, Vilhelm Junnila, and Wille Rydman of the National Coalition Party, as well as Sari Essyah of the Christian Democrats, were silent on Facebook.
More PS-Trump buffoonery.
