“We will not forget”

Also Biden when asked about people falling from airplanes

“That was 4-5 days ago”

So much for empathy and compassion.
"We will not forget"
Hard to believe coming from you Mr Biden

"Tough day. We spent many hours finding ways to assign blame to this, deny accountability, and ways in which we could survive politically"
With the comments ratio and dislike ratio there’s no way this man got 80 million votes.

This is one of the most embarrassing and saddest moment in our military history. We have folks stealing our equipment and helicopters like a video game and we lost more of our most precious and prized possession. I’m literally sick that our leadership is so terrible. Our country looks like complete failures.

24:45 old joe finally had to take a hard question and he totally fell over. What a strong competent leader we have
No matter how bad this may seem, just remember, it’s ALWAYS 10x’s worse when you find out the truth.
This man doesn’t hold a press conference longer than a half hour at best, takes two or three pre-selected questions and then walks away.

“I bear responsibility for fundamentally all that’s happened of late.” Immediately shifts the blame to the former president. 23:44
On a positive note, he made really good eye contact with the teleprompter!

"I need not tell you the perception around the world in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban," "And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture." -Joe Biden during his July 23rd phone call with X President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani.
“…I will defend our interests and our people with every measure in my command…”

Was expecting him to say “I failed and I’m stepping down”.
The fact that he has a list of reporters hes allowed to call on says a lot.

What? Who did Joe?
Patrick McGraw

You gotta love the mask theater at the beginning. Lol. What a great way to start. I'll bet there was a big meeting where they planned out the whole thing. Somebody in the back out the mask on him ten seconds before he walked out and told him to take it off as he's walking up there. It's hilarious how transparent it is.
Jeffrey McPike
Jeffrey McPike:
He can't even read the script without sounding like he's on his last leg. No real feeling for what he is attempting to read. Embarrassing.
You can hear the difference between when he's speaking and someone is talking in his ear. All the times he would have lost his train of thought, someone starts talking in his ear and his tone and cadence changes.
Maggilla Guerrilla
Maggilla Guerrilla:
His first words “it’s been a tough day” yeah tell that to the stranded Americans in Afghanistan and to the families of those military members.
Imagine praising yourself for rescuing all those people even tho you were the cause that they needed to be rescued. Oh wait that’s what the biden administration did

Your Commanders should have been screaming, while jumping up and down, "NO NO NO NO!!! You can't pull the troops out first!! Pull out the people, then the Equipment, then blow up what you can't bring, then pull out the troops!!" What were they thinking???? P.s. and "Let your allies know what you are planning to do before you do it!"

Which is it? His speech greatly emphasizes his desire and his decision to get all our troops out of Afghanistan. And yet in every speech he blames Trump for our having to withdraw?

Literally sounds and looks like he's reading something off 😂
i know this is a serious matter but i couldn’t stop laughing at sleepy joe because he made it feel like a joke. At least the one trump sent out was from the heart because Biden just sounded like a kid forced to apologize to someone
12 Marines died this morning, 12 families are going through hell right now because of this lack of leadership. My condolences to the families, as a OIF veteran Marine, I hope you find peace in your time of suffering. Semper Fi, you fallen few. We love you.

“They gave me a list here..” of reporters to call on so he is shielded from real questions. And he’s to far gone to even try to hide this! This is absolutely horrific

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for the POTUS and VPOTUS and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior. God Bless America again.

We had already been silent in prayer, Joe. Long before you called for a moment of silence we held our breath in vigil for our soldiers and citizens, and in awe of your mistakes. It is difficult for us to comprehend that you have still not publicly and personally owned your blunder here. The time for your feigned compassion has passed. Their blood is on your hands, “man.”

Tragic as life is in Afghanistan, we had a responsibility to get our people out safely with the assistance of our own military, first and foremost. AS YOU WERE PREVIOUSLY ADVISED. “I bear responsibility, (BUT not really)”

So obvious he’s being fed the scripted answers through an earpiece
I imagine he cries himself to sleep every night right about now. I cant see him being able to handle much more of this pressure so he should either put his health first and step down, or ride it out till he ends up having a stroke or heart attack. The media has done a pretty good job so far on not reporting his mistakes but I just cant see them holding back much longer. Wont be much longer before everyone turns their back on him.
"The goal is to use Afghanistan to wash money out of the tax bases of the US and Europe through Afghanistan and back into the hands of a transnational security elite. The goal is an endless war, not a successful war". - Julian Assange

Somebody please thumb me.
This is why his colleagues referred to him as "average Joe." Which is a slight, they were basically calling him re t a r | ded.
He's a good man, but too simple sometimes naive

"A moment of silence" with a old man's nose breathing noise WHILE moving his arm (checking phone, wtf?!) was probably the most disrespectful thing I ever testified in the history of the US.
