Remember how Hillary Clinton and Joey Demento bragged about speaking with world leaders when they ran for president. The idea was that world leaders saw them as de facto presidents.
Apparently, in the era of Biden world leaders no longer give a sh*t about Biden’s thoughts. Because according to reports, Biden hasn’t spoken with any world leaders.
I understand why Biden went incommunicado. Because if I got butt-raped by the Taliban in front of the whole world, I would want a little time to myself. To heal.
Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan said at a press briefing that Biden has not spoken to any world leaders since the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. But members of Biden’s crackerjack staff of misfits have “been in touch” with their foreign counterparts.
I’m guessing Biden staffers held Zoom calls, of course wearing their obligatory masks. Except this time, the masks were worn not due to Wuflu, but instead to cover their faces in SHAME!
Did Biden’s begging work?
According to Sullivan, the Taliban assured America’s third-rate brain-damaged dictator that they will allow safe passage of civilians to the airport. Ok.
So please explain the story earlier today of civilians on their way to the airport getting the crap kicked out of them by the Taliban.
Video provided to Fox News shows a Taliban fighter kicking a man in the face and another whipping people walking by.
When the former contractor encountered a checkpoint, the Taliban guard let him go but warned him not to leave the country: “You can go, don’t run away,” he said.
“There was kids women, babies, old women, they could barely walk. They were very very bad situation, I’m telling you,” he told Fox News. “At the end, I was thinking that there was like 10,000 or more than 10,000 people and they’re running into the airport.”
“The Taliban [were] beating people and the people were jumping from the fence, the concertina wire, and also the wall,” he said.
And if that weren’t enough, the State Department admitted that it couldn’t guarantee the safety of people wanting out.
From Yahoo news:
Americans who requested to be evacuated from Afghanistan received a note from the State Department informing them that the U.S. can’t “guarantee” their security on the way to the Kabul airport, CBS News reported on Tuesday.
The State Department has a list of roughly 5,000 Americans who have requested to leave Afghanistan and roughly half of them received the note, according to CBS.
“Thank you for registering your request to be evacuated from Afghanistan….Please make your way to Hamid Karzai International Airport at this time,” the note reads. “PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE UNITED STATES CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR SECURITY AS YOU MAKE THIS TRIP.”
That’s right. Because only the Taliban can guarantee their safety.
Ironically, in typical Tommy Tough-ass language Sullivan commented: “We intend to hold them to that commitment.”
How? With more tough talk?
I can hear the Taliban now, mockingly saying, “Oooo!” Then laughing their goat-f*cking asses off.
Sullivan echoed Biden’s comments, saying that they take responsibility for “every decision” made by the U.S. about the withdrawal. Then, he blamed others, adding there were “other parties” responsible for how it played out.
Just so we are clear. Biden is a doofus. And the Doofus-in-Chief hired other doofuses. And these morons now claim that they were “clear-eyed” about the possibility of a Taliban takeover when it made the decision to withdraw. That is what Sullivan said.
Do you believe that? Because Sullivan doesn’t believe it. And even the media isn’t buying it.
Still, Jake Tapper held Biden’s surrogate to task in this exchange.
I haven’t seen a more vicious media against Team Demented in a long time. It makes one wonder what the real shot-caller has in store. Why have the powers-that-be turned on Biden?
In discussing this option that Sullivan says the Biden team considered, Sullivan called the chaos from Kabul’s airport Monday “heartbreaking.” He then provided cover for Biden, saying that Biden considered the “human costs of the alternative path as well.”
Hmm, like the alternative of leaving the military in place and having a non-chaotic and orderly departure from that Third World armpit? It appears Biden nixed this option.
Those most impacted will be, wait for it…women and children.
Sullivan commented that he is saddened by what will happen for the women and children under Taliban rule. But he re-emphasized the point that the cost to protect them further was too high a price to pay. In other words: SEE YA!
“What has unfolded over the past month has proven decisively that it would’ve taken a significant American troop presence — multiple times greater than what President Biden was handed — to stop a Taliban onslaught. And we would’ve taken casualties.”
We get it. Time to cut bait. Even Trump agreed with that. But, Trump wouldn’t have been regarded as an idiot in the execution of his exit strategy.
I don’t expect any world leaders to contact Biden on this one. At least not until they quit laughing behind his back.
