Lindsey Graham slams Biden Afghanistan speech: ‘No one to blame but himself’

Sen. Lindsey Graham took aim at President Biden after the president’s address to the nation Monday, insisting Biden take more responsibility for the situation in Afghanistan.

“President Biden chose a dangerous and dishonorable path in Afghanistan, and he has no one to blame for this debacle but himself,” Graham said in a statement on Biden’s speech.

“With today’s speech, President Biden reinforced the view he still does not understand the War on Terror or how to protect America from the threat of radical Islam,” he continued. “The speech was a pathetic attempt to shift blame and an unnerving analysis of the situation he – and he alone – created. Contrary to what he may say or think, President Biden has not ended the war in Afghanistan. He is simply creating a new chapter – one that will be filled by Taliban thugs and al-Qaeda murderers.”

LIVE Trump Rally in Wellington, Ohio

Former President Donald Trump was in Ohio on Saturday night for first campaign-style event since leaving the White House in January.

Trump spoke at the Lorain County Fairgrounds not far from Cleveland, and offered his support to a former White House aide, Max Miller.

Miller is challenging Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez for his congressional seat. Gonzalez was one of 10 GOP House members who voted to impeach Trump for his role in inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Putin calls Trump an ‘extraordinary individual,’ Biden, a ‘career man’

Putin calls Trump an ‘extraordinary individual,’ Biden, a ‘career man’

Russian President Vladimir Putin had laudatory words for President Trump, whom he praised as an “extraordinary individual,” and only a bland comment on President Biden, who he called a “career man” in politics.

“I believe that former U.S. president Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual, otherwise he would not have become U.S. President,” Putin told NBC News in his first interview with a U.S. news network since 2018. “He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn’t come from the U.S. establishment, he had not been part of big-time politics before, and some like it some don’t like it but that is a fact.”

White House backs Trump Facebook ban: ‘Unlikely that the zebra is going to change his stripes’

White House backs Trump Facebook ban: ‘Unlikely that the zebra is going to change his stripes’

The White House backed Facebook’s decision to suspend former President Donald Trump for two years, predicting he is unlikely to drop the sharp rhetoric that led to his initial ban from social media platforms.

The social media giant announced Friday Trump would be suspended for two years, retroactive to his Jan. 7 suspension from Facebook and Instagram due to his role leading up to the Capitol riot the previous day. That means the Republican stalwart could return to both sites by early 2023 — potentially in the heat of a GOP presidential primary fight and as the party’s front-runner if he decides to run again. However, it would still deprive the party of its most robust voice during the 2022 midterm elections on the platforms.
