President Biden’s decision to bomb militants in Syria was greeted with memes and mockery online. Biden’s hypocritical bomb strike

The Biden administration has defended the actions saying that the airstrike was against militants backed by Iran that had recently been attacking American service members.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended President Biden’s decision to issue an airstrike against Iranian-backed forces in Syria in retaliation for recent attacks on American service members, saying it was a “proportional military response.”

On Thursday night, U.S. Armed Forces carried out an airstrike against Kait’ib Sayyid al Shuhada and Kait’ib Hezbollah — two Iraqi border-based militant Shia groups who are suspected of taking money from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

“The Department of Defense briefed Congressional leadership before the action last night. The Administration has been briefing the Hill at the Member- and staff-level today,” Psaki said in an official statement. “There will be a full classified briefing early next week at the latest.”

Here’s the thing, though… Joe Biden was quite critical of then-President Trump’s targeted strike, killing Solemani just a little over a year ago. He even said that he didn’t believe it was done because there was an imminent attack targeting American troops.

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s assertion he ordered a drone strike on Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani to avert an “imminent attack” can’t be taken at face value because the commander in chief has “lied so much.”

In an interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt, Biden, a Democratic presidential candidate, said of Trump, “I don’t give him the benefit of the doubt of anything.”

He also pushed back on Trump’s statement that he ordered the strike that killed Soleimani “to stop a war.”

Biden said the strike that killed Soleimani “takes us a heck of a lot closer to war. We’re putting 18,000 more troops in the region. Do we have — have they planned ahead of time to make sure they secure all the bases we have and all the areas that Americans are in fact more vulnerable because of proxies of Iraq — of Iran?”

Biden in 2020 didn’t believe President Trump because he “lied so much.” Well, here we are in 2021, Biden is now President, and he has lied about the lack of a vaccine rollout under Trump, lied about being able to stop the spread of the coronavirus, getting kids back in schools, and has yet to deliver the campaign-trail promised $2000 stimulus checks. And then, there’s his history of plagiarism…. so, Biden exactly the paragon of honesty.

Now that Biden is bringing back the Swamp, which includes Obama-era policies of blowing things up in the Middle East while also being the sweet, tolerant, kind alternative to the Bad Orange Man.

That hasn’t been lost on many, many Americans.

Authorizing an attack a month after being sworn into office is just ripe for mockery.

 

Some praised the difference between the Biden bombing and Trump’s targeted drone strike.

It’s the Re-Bama Administration.

Some Twitter users noted that the airstrike took priority over other promised agenda items.

Several memes specifically point out that the $2000 stimulus check that was a key campaign promise hasn’t managed to appear, but the bombing of Middle Eastern countries has resumed.

This non-meme post with a screenshot of a tweet by the current White House Press Secretary was particularly damning.

She will circle back to you on that.

Some tweeted about the hypocrisy of the left.

 

See? There is an upside to the Biden administration — it can be freaking hilarious! Until we suffer the consequences.
