CLAY & BUCK: Biden Sends ‘Very Strongly Worded’ Letter To Taliban


BUCK: What is the Biden administration doing to get people out of Afghanistan — Americans out of Afghanistan? There are so many layers here, Clay. For one, the prioritization of Americans first to get out is something this administration seems to reject at this point. And also, now we have the ambassador, Linda Thomas-Greenfield. Just last night, the ambassador at the United Nations, she says that we should have a very… Well, actually, I’ll let her say it. Play 1.

THOMAS-GREENFIELD: And we have expressed in no uncertain terms here at the United Nations through a very strongly worded press statement from the Security Council that we expect the Taliban to respect human rights, including the rights of women and girls. We have also indicated that they have to be respectful of humanitarian law.

BUCK: A strongly worded letter, Clay! The Taliban is terrified.

CLAY: This is the logical extension, I think, Buck, of Twitter taking over diplomacy in the twenty-first century in many ways. Let me explain what I mean by that. We have an entire generation now of leaders, particularly Democrats who believe that all that matters is what is said on Twitter. They don’t pay attention to actions. They pay attention, by and large, to words and what trends.

It is embarrassing to the United States that we have one of the greatest violators of human rights in the history of the world, and we are bragging about the fact that we sent “a very strongly worded press statement” that expects for the Taliban to obey law. Look, you know this, Buck. People who are strong and powerful and violent do not care about your favored pronouns.

They don’t care about what you are trending on Twitter. They care about raw power. And we’ve got an entire generation of Americans — because they have been able to move this country by whining on Twitter — that thinks they could beat modern-day Nazis by sending them mean tweets, right? (laughs) And this is not how the world works.

And I think what’s gonna happen, Buck, is all of these different viral videos of what’s actually going on in Afghanistan are gonna start to get released, and people are gonna say, “Man! The things that go on in the world can be pretty awful,” right? Because what people get upset about, by and large, on a daily basis in America is not that significant.

And all these woke companies, they come back, and they apologize, and they curl up in the fetal position. And this is the logical extension of this. This is embarrassing, that we are bragging about “a very strongly worded press statement” that the Biden administration put out against the Taliban.
