The President of the United States just gaslit Americans while yelling at them. Joe’s angry defensive address

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, and another was to leave a handful of troops as a backup for the Afghan Security Forces.

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 claimed victory while blaming Trump, suggesting that the “deal” with the Taliban was awful, 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 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.

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

Judging by the way his approval has tanked over the last month,  America it seems is disappointed that he wasn’t announcing that the Biden presidency was over: Joe’s angry defensive address

 

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. But of course, that would be truthful, and the President is Lyin Joe Biden.

The Deleware deluder even contradicted what he promised back on April.14

“We will not conduct a hasty rush to the exit.  We’ll do it — we’ll do it responsibly, deliberately, and safely.  And we will do it in full coordination with our allies and partners, who now have more forces in Afghanistan than we do.”

After claiming that the mission was a success, Biden then blames Trump for anything bad that happened. But sorry Joe, Trump didn’t give you dementia.

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

He left without taking questions. But as he turned to walk away, he turned back to retrieve his mask, and the MSM got excited for a moment.

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

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.”

But why was the President so angry?

He knows it was a failure.

Well, that is one logical explanation. A May 2021 New York Times piece reported that despite his “folksy” demeanor, Joe Biden has a short fuse, is “obsessed” with detailed explanations, doesn’t make decisions quickly, and will go on profanity-laced tirades when he’s frustrated.

But Joe’s anger might be due to something else. Many people with Alzheimer’s go through a total personality change. Aggressively angry people become calm and gentle, gentle people become mean and angry, etc. Perhaps Joe Biden’s anger is just another indication of his loss of mental capabilities.

Either way, Biden should have made a speech to heal an America depressed at the loss of thirteen Americans via a suicide bombing, partially caused Joe Biden’s screwed up Afghan withdrawal.
