Sean Penn Claims He Was Told To 'Get The F— Out' Of Ukraine [Video]
Attention-grabbing liberal actor Sean Penn sat down in a Q&A with Bret Baier. The Two were joined by [Former National Security Adviser] Robert O'Brien who allegedly tried to talk the actor out of filming a documentary during an active war in Ukraine. Penn told the crowd, that O'Brien told him to 'get the F— out of' Ukraine but admitted later that it was an over-dramatization of what was actually said.
Penn continued, "I was speaking to Robert [O'Brien] the whole time here. He knows the region much better than I do, and I made it. We … calculated that it would be fine, whatever happened. I don't think anybody wanted to give up a level of denial that [the war] would happen because they would be giving up hope that [the invasion] wouldn't happen."
Theactor then described meeting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and how he witnessed in a short period of time how the "world had changed."
"We met with [Zelenskyy], a man in a suit, and the next morning the Russians invaded. We went back. We were with President Zelensky and waited for him at a meeting point. And the next time I saw him, he was in camos and the world had changed," he said.
