He opens his mouth and shit comes out, but we still don’t know what it all means, because he votes with Joe Biden 100% of the time:
I mean it’s not like the people from the 6th poorest state would benefit from these things. https://t.co/Gf6kWwS0Sj

He gave a fantastic speech yesterday on the end of the war:
Susan Glasser serious person, suggesting we go out and bomb the shit out of everyone and then occupy them, the new empire for Human Rights strategy. https://t.co/zqs1UgTpoU

Biden’s compassion for and work to note the real human costs to our soldiers is a note that many lefty pundits may minimize and Fox will try desperately to denigrate… but it’s the heart of why that speech was brilliant.

Pres Biden faced fierce criticism over the last few weeks over his decision to withdraw from Afghanistan & the way in which he did it. He is pushing back hard on that criticism & pointedly defending his choice not to continue the two-decade war w/ another generation of troops.

The foreign policy consensus loves military adventurism. The American people do not. And Joe Biden knows who he works for.
Great speech, Mr. President. https://t.co/Dhtqs1g08u

The idea that Biden somehow screwed up the Afghanistan withdrawal is, quite literally, being propped up so that the people who actually screwed the whole thing up can escape accountability. Utterly shameful that the media learned nothing from all this. https://t.co/gmVqxXLST0

How many times have you heard that about Trump? Or “He’ll shake things up”? Sure, why not ask a random nurse’s aide to do your brain surgery? Wouldn’t that be a breath of fresh air?

The US political press's utterly hysterical, contextless, bloodthirsty blitz of negative coverage of Biden's Afghanistan pullout has managed to drive his approval rating down, which the press will then use to justify its negative coverage. Just a disgusting performance.
