This past Wednesday, Old Uncle Joe Biden fled out of a p[ress conference after repeated jabs aimed at Republican-led states concerning their handling of the entire coronavirus pandemic.
Uncle Joe’s press conference cropped up as a few thousand Americans are still stuck in Afghanistan and horrifying images have popped up from the nation showing violence and chaos exploding in the wake of his insane pullout of troops from Afghanistan.
He refused to take even a single question from any reporters.
Biden walks away from the podium after talking about vaccines and mask mandates for 15 minutes.
Not a single question.
No mention of the crisis in Afghanistan.

Uncle Joe, who has made it a point to flee before taking any questions from any members of the press for days, ignited horrendous backlash earlier this past week after making a short statement concerning Afghanistan before quickly turning heel on the media and fleeing back to Camp David.
The Taliban’s rushed takeover of Afghanistan seemed to accelerate over the past few weeks despite Uncle Joe’s comments from back in July that it was “highly unlikely” that the Taliban would once again conquer Afghanistan.
The Taliban took control of a large amount of U.S. military hardware and weapons that were given to the Afghan security forces for them to use in their combat against the Taliban.
The Afghan security forces, however, promptly collapsed against the increased Taliban pressure after the U.S. Military, still under Uncle Joe’s control, stopped providing air support to the country, which hamstrung the Afghan security forces and left them unable to operate.
As reported by The Wall Street Journal:
The Afghan army fighting alongside American troops was molded to match the way the Americans operate. The U.S. military, the world’s most advanced, relies heavily on combining ground operations with air power, using aircraft to resupply outposts, strike targets, ferry the wounded, and collect reconnaissance and intelligence.
In the wake of President Biden’s withdrawal decision, the U.S. pulled its air support, intelligence and contractors servicing Afghanistan’s planes and helicopters. That meant the Afghan military simply couldn’t operate anymore. The same happened with another failed American effort, the South Vietnamese army in the 1970s, said retired Lt. Gen. Daniel Bolger, who commanded the U.S.-led coalition’s mission to train Afghan forces in 2011-2013.
“There is always a tendency to use the model you know, which is your own model,” stated Bolger. “When you build an army like that, and it’s meant to be a partner with a sophisticated force like the Americans, you can’t pull the Americans out all of a sudden, because then they lose the day-to-day assistance that they need.”
Uncle Joe attempted to sling the blame at the Afghan security forces for their collapse, claiming that they were just “not willing to fight for themselves,” in spite of the fact that they have suffered losses just north of 70,000 soldiers in the fight against the Taliban and other terrorist groups throughout the country.
