Imagine if we still lived in the Cold War world where nuclear war could be imminent and POTUS had to make immediate decisions.
Biden is clearly not up to it.
While Kabul was falling, the British PM, who has plenty of people, military and civilian on the ground, could not reach Biden.
‘Mr Johnson had been attempting to get Mr Biden on the phone to discuss Kabul falling from Monday morning. The pair eventually talked at close to 10pm on Tuesday.’
Now, Biden is reportedly heading back to Delaware. Going from one vacation to another.
It may be time for his cabinet members to consider the 25th Amendment. At the very least there needs to be medical certification.
Consider this bizarre exchange, one of many, in the released transcript of the Stephanopoulos interview. And no matter how much the former top Clinton ally tries to help Biden over the hump, it’s just the rambling of a confused man who’s not up to holding office.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But you didn’t put a timeline on it when you said it was highly unlikely. You just said flat out, “It’s highly unlikely the Taliban would take over.”
BIDEN: Yeah. Well, the question was whether or not it w– the idea that the Taliban would take over was premised on the notion that the — that somehow, the 300,000 troops we had trained and equipped was gonna just collapse, they were gonna give up. I don’t think anybody anticipated that.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But you know that Senator McConnell, others say this was not only predictable, it was predicted, including by him, based on intelligence briefings he was getting.
BIDEN: What — what did he say was predicted?
STEPHANOPOULOS: Senator McConnell said it was predictable that the Taliban was gonna take over.
BIDEN: Well, by the end of the year, I said that’s that was — that was a real possibility. But no one said it was gonna take over then when it was bein’ asked.
Here, Biden gets confused about his own son’s record. This is the son, whom unlike Hunter Biden, he built his entire campaign around.
BIDEN: Look, that’s like askin’ my deceased son Beau, who spent six months in Kosovo and a year in Iraq as a Navy captain and then major– I mean, as an Army major. And, you know, I’m sure h– he had regrets comin’ out of Afganista– I mean, out of Iraq.
Beau Biden was never in Afghanistan. He was an Army JAG. Hunter Biden was in the Navy Reserve. If Biden is this confused about the basic details of his son’s lives, how does anyone expect him to process and make good decisions when it comes to Afghanistan?
