Joe Biden has been spinning quite the yarn these days regarding the situation in Afghanistan.
We know he has been flat-out lying, so much so that some Democrats are trying to separate themselves from claims made by Joe Biden.
The latest being Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) calling BS on a Biden claim regarding Afghans leaving the country.
I Call BS
On Monday, Biden addressed the nation for a whopping 18 minutes regarding the situation in Afghanistan.
In part, he stated, “I know there are concerns about why we did not begin evacuating Afghan civilians sooner.
“Part of the answer is some of the Afghans did not want to leave earlier, still hopeful for their country.
“Part of it was because the Afghan government and its supporters discouraged us from organizing a mass exodus to avoid triggering, as they said, a crisis of confidence.”
Moulton, in response, stated, “That’s utter BS.
“I mean, don’t tell me that Afghans don’t want to leave when there’s been a backlog of Special Immigrant Visa applications for over a decade.
“Don’t tell me they don’t want to leave when they’re literally clinging to airplanes to try to get out of this country.
“That was the single part of the president’s speech that I not only disagreed with but I thought was just utter BS.”
Moulton was among the first Dems to distance himself from this debacle, stating on Sunday, “To say that today is anything short of a disaster would be dishonest. Worse, it was avoidable.
“The time to debate whether we stay in Afghanistan has passed, but there is still time to debate how we manage our retreat.
“For months, I have been calling on the Administration to evacuate our allies immediately—not to wait for paperwork, for shaky agreements with third countries, or for time to make it look more ‘orderly.’”
Expect to see this more in the coming days, as more and more Democrats will start looking after number one rather than protecting the current occupant of the White House.
Even then, it may not stop this rising red wave that will overtake Congress in 2022.
