Once again. He wasn’t wrong about everything. In fact, he was right about a lot of things.
Yes, it was way past high time to get out of Afghanistan.
Yes, this nation-building naivety has failed us for seven decades.
Yes, our own national interests and security should always be the measuring stick for sending our military into harm’s way.
Yes, there’s no perfect time to end a war.
Yes, every exit is going to trigger some degree of chaos.
Check, check, check, check and check.
He wasn’t wrong about everything. In fact, he was right about a lot of things.
But his address was irrelevant and impertinent to the fact that this exit was poorly planned and damaged our national interests. And he delivered this impertinence with defiance, deflection and an absolute refusal to assume any responsibility for errors that were clearly made.
The buck didn’t stop. It accelerated.
Always fun to identify and recognize the latest talking points from the Cult. The latest one is obviously “mean tweets.” Yeah, that was the only problem anyone had with Trump.
That, and Trump was “abrasive.”
Brillo pads are abrasive. Trump is an ignorant, arrogant, narcissistic, uneducated, inarticulate, outlaw, racist, martinet, wannabe dictator, lying, autocratic asshole.
Glad, I could spell out the difference between “abrasive,” and Drumpf.
