CLAY & BUCK: Biden Implodes on ABC News


CLAY: Let’s start here with what’s going on with this ABC interview with George Stephanopoulos. He was asked, Biden was, whether or not it was a failure. I think it’s clearly a failure. Even CNN is saying so. We’ll play that for you in a sec. But first, here’s Biden saying, “I don’t know. I don’t think it was a failure.”

STEPHANOPOULOS: But we’ve all seen the pictures. We’ve seen those hundreds of people packed into the C-17. We’ve seen Afghans falling —

BIDEN: That was four days ago, five days ago!

STEPHANOPOULOS: What did you think when you first saw those pictures?

BIDEN: What I thought was (sputters) we have to gain control of this. We have to move this more quickly! We have to move in a way which we can take control of that airport, and we did!

STEPHANOPOULOS: You don’t think it could have been handled — this exit could have been handled — better in any way, no mistakes?

BIDEN: No. I — I — I don’t think it could have been handled in a way that (exasperated sputtering) W-w-we’re gonna go back in hindsight and look. But the idea that somehow there’s a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens. I don’t know how that happened! (sic)

CLAY: That is complete and utter delusion. We’ll start here, Buck Sexton. When you hear that… First of all, it wasn’t four or five days ago that guys were falling out of the sky, the awful viral video of Afghan natives who are so desperate to flee the Taliban that they were hanging onto American airplanes, and who knows how long they were hoping to be able to hang on. But you can see them falling from the sky as they are unable to stay held onto the airplane. This is pure delusion, Buck Sexton, from Joe Biden in this interview.
