(trendingpolitics) – On Thursday, President Joe Biden got completely humiliated online after an embarrassing slip up he had during an NBC News interview with Lester Holt.
In the interview, Biden got confused between Afghanistan, Ukraine and Iraq after Holt asked him about his terrible decision to pull out of Afghanistan.
“No. What I was told, no one told me that, look, there was no good time to get out,” Biden rambled. “But if we had not gotten out, they acknowledged that we would have had to put a hell of a lot more troops back in. It wasn’t just 2,000, 4,000, we would have to significantly increase the number of troops, and we’re back in this this war of attrition. And, and there was no way we were ever going to unite Ukraine, excuse me, Iraq, Afghanistan. No way that was going to happen. And so this is a much wiser thing to do.”
“This man has the nuclear football,” Senator Ted Cruz said in response to Biden’s comments.
“If, like Biden with Afghanistan, you choose to destroy a country for no reason except the fulfilment of your own ideological whimsy, you do owe it to the country to at least remember the name,” foreign policy researcher Kyle Orton stated. “Again, far worse in full context. Biden is either a liar without remorse; a compulsive liar with no control over it; or someone in serious mental decline who can’t remember events six months ago. None really make a good case for his being President.”
“So weird that they don’t let him do more interviews!” Abigail Marone, Press Secretary for Senator Josh Hawley said. Do you support the Trucker’s Freedom Convoy?* Yes No Email* This poll gives you free access to our premium politics newsletter. Unsubscribe at any time.
Republican Governor’s Association Communications Director Jesse Hunt released a tweet, saying, “Impressive, he listed all the places where he’s been part of foreign policy failures in one sentence.”
“Barely There Biden confuses Ukraine for Iraq and Afghanistan,” Journalist Ian Miles Cheong said. “Soon, he will confuse whatever location’s in his head for Canada.”
