Joe Biden has finally completely lost one of his biggest allies on the right.
After the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, Meghan McCain has completely broken from the longtime family friend.
McCain stated, “I do not recognize this man.”
When Joe Biden spoke to the nation on Tuesday, many of us sat there with our mouths hanging open in disbelief.
Biden, in part, stated, “Some say we should have started mass evacuations sooner and [ask] ‘Couldn’t this have be done — have been done in a more orderly manner?’ I respectfully disagree.
“Imagine if we had begun evacuations in June or July, bringing in thousands of American troops and evacuating more than 120,000 people in the middle of a civil war.
“There still would have been a rush to the airport, a breakdown in confidence and control of the government, and it still would have been a very difficult and dangerous mission.”
Biden went on to take credit for certain parts of the mission while placing Donald Trump front and center for its failures.
Most military strategists have already agreed this plan failed at every level, and that was before Biden left hundreds of Americans stranded behind enemy lines.
Meghan McCain, the daughter of longtime Trump enemy and the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), has been more critical of Biden as of late, but she was still holding out hope.
That all ended after Afghanistan, where McCain has clearly cut the apron strings from her father’s buddy…
This is extremely difficult for me to say:
I once thought I truly knew Joe Biden and he helped me through pain and grief, for which I am grateful.
This man on tv giving this speech, I do not recognize this man. God help our country. God help the Americans we have abandoned.

Even so, the McCain family will have a hard time separating themselves from Biden and this debacle.
Prior to the election, Cindy McCain had tweeted, “My husband John lived by a code: country first.
“We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost. There’s only one candidate in this race who stands up for our values as a nation, and that is @JoeBiden.”
Let’s just say that tweet did not age very well.
