The President of the United States just gaslit Americans while yelling at them.

This was not a good look for the President. He was agitated and angry as he spoke about the atrociously bungled withdrawal, chaotic evacuation, and a terror attack that left 13 U.S. troops and over 170 civilians dead.

Biden was originally scheduled to address the nation at 1:30 pm, which later got pushed back to 2:45 pm. He was late, beginning to speak at 3:30 pm. It was, as usual, a short address. The President spoke for approximately 25 minutes.

When he finally did speak to the nation in a bizarre midday Presidential Address (aren’t these things normally done in the evening during PrimeTime TV? That must be past Joe’s bedtime!) Biden spent half of the time yelling at Americans for not appreciating the great job he’s doing as President.

The President doesn’t seem to understand what is angering the American people — it wasn’t the leaving of Afghanistan, it was the how.

He tried to frame the withdrawal as an either/or — either we withdraw in the mess that Biden oversaw, or we bring in more troops. There were other options. One was not screw up the withdrawal, another was to leave a handful of troops as backup for the Afghan Security Forces, and other options that people with more expertise than I have could offer.

Biden came across as angry and defensive, lecturing, and insincere. It was a confusing speech that was all over the map and filled with strawmen arguments. The President was claiming victory while blaming Trump, suggesting that the “deal” with the Taliban was awful, then suggesting that the United States is not just considering accepting the Taliban as the legitimate governing power in Afghanistan, but might provide humanitarian aid. (WHAT?!) It also included an entire rewriting of Biden’s position on Afghanistan in the early part of the War on Terror. Biden was a big backer of “nation-buliding” until he decided it was an unpopular war and wanted out at any cost.

During his speech, Biden called the withdrawal an “extraordinary success” and clearly thinks that the bad press he’s facing isn’t fair.

He was angry and appeared to be yelling at Americans for not recognizing what a great job his handlers have told him that he’s doing.

Biden, continuing with the hostile tone, blamed Americans for not leaving the country.

He said that they had been reaching out to Americans since March to leave…. but in April, Biden said a “Tollybon” takeover wouldn’t be inevitable and lauded the Afghan Security Forces. So, which is it? Were they confident that the country was relatively stable, or was it going to be the chaos we see now? Biden wants you to believe that they saw both scenarios and were prepared for both. That’s clearly not true.

Later in the speech, he calmed down a bit and said, “The war in Afghanistan is now over.”

He said that the reason to be in Afghanistan was over after the death of Osama bin Laden. He didn’t mention that he opposed the killing of bin Laden and was all for “nation-building” in Afghanistan.

He contradicted what he said in April saying that chaos was inevitable.

After claiming that the mission was a success, Biden then blames Trump for anything bad that happened.

Biden also said that they would pressure the “Tollybon” because they might lose their good standing in the international community and risk receiving humanitarian aid.

Hello, McFly! What about the “Caretaker President” that is still in Afghanistan?

Afghani PM Declares Himself ‘Caretaker President’ … Vows To Oppose Taliban

Has the United States just abandoned him and accepted the Taliban as a legitimate government?!

It appears so.

He left without taking questions, as he turned to walk away, he turned back to retrieve his mask.

Here is the full speech:

After that speech, Biden’s tweet from June 4, 2020, didn’t age well…

One of the particularly disgusting things is that Joe keeps bringing up his son Beau, who died in 2015 as though it’s relevant in any way, shape, or form. According to Gold Star families, Joe did this when he met with them trying to empathize with losing a child. It seems to me that losing a 46-year old son because of an aggressive brain tumor, while incredibly tragic, is not remotely similar to losing a 20-year old to a terror attack that the U.S. government was warned about but did not take precautions against because they put their trust in terrorists who have an 8th Century worldview and have no qualms killing people for no real reason.

Here’s the part where he brings up Beau.

After the presser, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was brought out to clean up after Angry Joe. She refused to address if Biden was repeatedly checking his watch during the dignified transfer of the 13 fallen U.S. troops which family members found callous.

Even Sycophantic Chuck Todd couldn’t completely defend Joe’s speech. He called it “angry” and “defensive.”

Biden was getting slammed on Right-Wing Twitter in real-time and it was brutal!

Kurt Schlichter summed up the entire speech in one tweet:

But why was the President so angry?

He knows it was a failure.


Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, to buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.
