President Joe Biden has come under fire for his latest trainwreck of an interview with George Stephanopoulos, in which he sounded frequently befuddled and occasionally defiant.
“We’ve all seen the pictures. We’ve seen those hundreds of people packed in a C-17. We’ve seen Afghans falling,” Stephanopoulos said before Biden dismissed him.
“That was four days ago, five days ago!” the president said.
But in the real world, it was only two days ago at the beginning of the week on Monday.
Also, one critic of the administration’s handling of the departure of U.S. forces from Afghanistan noted that things may have been done differently.
“No. I don’t think it could’ve been handled in a way that — we’re going to go back in hindsight and look but the idea that somehow there was a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens,” Biden said.
“So for you, that was always priced in the decision?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Yes,” Biden answered.

Biden’s critics have had a field day bashing the interview due to Biden being the imbecile that he is.
“This is such a slap in the face to the thousands of Americans still in Afghanistan. He had no plan, he has no urgency, and he won’t take responsibility. #Shameful,” former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley wrote on Twitter.
“A truly ignorant and shameful performance by an American president,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) wrote.
“No way to avoid this chaos? That’s a bald-faced lie. Joe Biden is as dishonest as he is impotent,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) wrote.
Others also piled on.
“Biden’s failure to even admit to his catastrophic mistake, when the whole world has watched the disaster unfurl on live TV, is both breathtakingly arrogant & disturbingly delusional. He either doesn’t care or is in denial,” British TV host Piers Morgan said.
“This is a presidency-defining clip. And it’s really bad,” Commentary associate editor Noah Rothman wrote.
The Biden administration has been a trainwreck since they stole the election earlier this year, and this is just another showing of his true colors.
