In a heated Twitter tirade, Meghan MaCain slams longtime pal Joe Biden, saying, “Don’t recognize him!”
Meghan McCain, a long-time Biden family friend, criticized Joe Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal address, claiming she is “disgusted” and “doesn’t recognize” him.
Meghan McCain, a former co-host of The View and a close family friend of Joe Biden, has ripped apart the US President’s address marking the pullout from Afghanistan. Ms McCain went on a Twitter rant against President Biden, saying she no longer “recognizes” him. Following his speech, Mr. Biden drew a lot of flak for calling the chaotic withdrawal of Western soldiers from Kabul a “success.”
“[Thirteen] American soldiers are dead – most of them between the ages of 20-23 because they were put in harm’s way chaotically in the line of fire of a suicide bomber,” Meghan McCain said on Twitter.
“This is really tough for me to say: I once believed I actually knew Joe Biden, and he helped me through suffering and grief, which I am grateful for,” she wrote.
“I don’t know who this dude on TV is giving this speech.
“Last night in Kabul, the United States concluded 20 years of war in Afghanistan,” Mr Biden said during his remarks.
“The conflict that has lasted the longest in American history.
“With more than 120,000 people evacuated to safety, we performed one of the largest airlifts in history.”
“That number is more than double what most experts thought was possible,” he continued.
NOT TO BE MISSED:
“Only the United States had the will and capacity to do it, and we did it today.
Mr. Biden has been heavily chastised – both at home and among his friends – for the haste with which the US withdrew.
