Baker On Afghanistan Fallout For Biden: 'It Has Damaged Him Politically'


    1. @Mr. Majestic Yet, it’s Democrat cities that are filled to the brim with the starving homeless…Have you been to L.A or San Francisco lately?? Nearly every single underpass along the freeways have become homeless camps.

    2. @J Biden ran his election on a manifesto that included full support for the withdrawal. It is a statistical fact that by 2022 the world will have run out of things to blame Trump for. This is nothing to do with Trump this is about a complete and utter failure of competence. But something tells me even when you spill your coffee, somehow it’s Trumps fault.

    3. @Mr. Majestic California just passed Mississippi in poverty this year with its new stats. That’s pretty sad ngl and for California out of all states with its resources to be there is sad

  1. Where’s the celebrity outrage ? Not that I care but normally they’d be outspoken against politicians poor handling of situations , and awful
    Woman’s rights in these countries

    1. Standards are different when the President has a D in front of his/her name. The sad part about all this is the lack of coverage of the living conditions of the refugees that have been flown out. Just google it…families have been separated. People are in holding centers with lack of food, water and proper sanitation. The border holding centers in our country (for those crossing in from Mexico) are 5 star hotels compared to the Afghan refugees. Sad really.

  2. He has been stumbling and mumbling since day 1, why is everyone shocked and outraged at his ineptitude now? I guess many were willing to ignore it until it cost lives.

    1. @bearlytraincot you’re stupid if you think Biden is the best president in a while 😂 He makes Trump and Obama look like George Washington lol

    2. @bearlytraincot You shouldn’t be reported. At least we American patriots defend your right to reveal yourself as the buffoon you are. But there’s far more within your comments. You’re a masochist and love any attention you get. You should be ecstatic now.

    3. The best train wreck POTUS for sure. Nice job leaving $85 bill in military
      hardware behind which is in the hands of the Taliban now. GREAT JOB!

    1. @Barbara Forde Says the person trolling on the internet. What a sad, weak joke you people are. This is why you keep LOSING every single day.

    2. @SvnsetSomnia If that’s your best response, then you deserve to keep losing. The libs are way too smart for you.

    3. MSNBC and CNN carried Biden’s water. His Presidency has been disaster. Everything decision is destroying our country.

    1. Liden Biden destroys everything 👌👉🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳👳‍♂️👳‍♂️👳‍♂️

  3. “He wants to focus on domestic issues”…….”China and Russia”

    Where does MSDNC find these 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

    1. China is the same as usa . Chinausa Biden 👉🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳👌👌👌🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    2. Yes most Democrats are not bright at all ..
      I guess it stems down from the top.
      Liden biden 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️👌👌👌

    1. @Tessmage Tessera Vietnam looks like an overwhelming success compared to handing a county over to 7th century Islamic fanatics.

  4. The Democrats all knew Biden was an incompetent demented potato, but they voted him in anyway, because of their hatred of Trump. I blame the Democrats!

    1. @D B Tell us all how Trump’s “peace deal” with the Taliban, where he freed 5,000 of their worst killers and leaders, lifted economic sanctions against them, and promised all US troops would be out by May 1st, would have yielded a different result.

    2. @C.A.T. Because the Trump plan had CONDITIONS. See, how it works is, “conditions” are a part of the agreement. Non compliance (like, say fer instance, invading Kabul and putting our people at risk, doing everything you MUST have seen the past two weeks onTV) would mean severe, lethal repercussions. Trump was good at that. Biden simply ran out the door with NO plan. The SAME guy threw open the borders and killed oil independence on day one in office to pay back the mouth breathing political unwashed, has as his excuse for this political malpractice (same as you), “But, but. but TRUMP…” No. Wrong. A lie. You really ought to try and catch up. Hey, have your mom help you with the big words.

    3. @David Shepard Please go into more detail about Trump’s great plan, and how he would have stopped the Taliban from taking over. For instance, what “severe, lethal repercussions” means exactly. “Trump was good at that”? You mean like how he made a deal with the Turkish dictator Erdogan that left our Kurdish allies high and dry and our bases there to be handed over to the Russians? Or how he bent over for Putin in Helsinki, or was complicit in covering up the murder and dismemberment of a journalist by the Saudis, or called off joint military exercises with South Korea to please Kim in exchange for nothing, or launched a missile attack on a Russian airbase n Syria after making sure to give them plenty of notice to withdraw all their planes and equipment first? Such a “stable genius”.

  5. ‘It Has Damaged Him Politically’ . Good to see your priority is his political career, not the lives being lost.

  6. US soldiers and civilians are dying there and… look at these “conscience keepers of the society” discussing political fallout of their Dear leader’s gargantuan blunder. Their All talk of human rights & human values and what not….is just an expendable commodity for these peoples.😔😕

  7. We are watching from the outside and event unfold, let’s see what happens in the next few weeks, follow the money that the Taliban wants that is sitting in American banks , that will show us where their humanitarianism lies… so many jumping on the ‘ I hate everything anyone does ‘ bandwagon to stirrup hate and fear ….

  8. Biden is incompetent on all levels including his VP pick who they sent off to Asia to avoid tough questions from the media. The administration is a joke from the border to the Afghanistan debacle.

    1. Yeah an actual “coup” with actually thousands of people, with actually all of them armed. You know a Real Coup

    2. Afraid there will be much more pain ahead before that happens, but with Joe at the helm, anything is possible. What he will do as an encore after this? Shudder to think.

  9. 2020 Young Voters -” Ridin with Biden”. 2024 Young Voters -“Hidin from Biden”.
