Patrick Christys launched into a furious tirade against Joe Biden on GB News on Tuesday as he reflected on the final US troops leaving Afghanistan. The broadcaster lashed out at the US President and blamed him for the current crisis in the country as the Taliban seized control of Kabul airport.
Christys began: “Now, President Joe Biden’s Afghan indignity is complete, America’s longest war is now over.
“Celebratory Taliban gunfire rang out inside Kabul airport as the final US flights out of Afghanistan took off.
“It’s a historic day after 20 years the lives of 2500 US servicemen and women, 250,000 Afghans and $2 trillion, America is out.
“But it isn’t the plane taking off from Kabul airport that counts it’s the one that landed in Delaware, carrying the bodies of 13 US troops that really does.”

“As the coffins emerge one by one, it didn’t initially appear that the families of the war dead were present,” Christys explained.
“It was only when howling was heard from behind a row of buses that the true grief of the situation became clear.
“And what did Joe Biden do? He checked his watch. Have you got somewhere to be Joe?
“One distraught mother directly pinned the blame on Biden for her son’s death, one father said that when he met the President, the President spoke more about his own son, than the grieving fathers.
“I just don’t think Biden gets it. I don’t think he gets what he’s done. I don’t think he gets the human impact of the decisions that he’s made or the damage that they’ve caused.”
“I wonder how much buyer’s remorse there is in America today?” Christys asked.
“If Joe Biden was a product you’d take him back to the store and ask for a refund, and they’d have to give it to you.
“Why? Because he falsely advertised himself, Joe Biden was miss-sold. In one of his first speeches he said and I quote, ‘America is back, The Trans Atlantic Alliance is back, the US is determined to reinstate its position of trust and leadership.’”
“What transatlantic relationship?” Christys continued. “Joe Biden blindsided everyone with this hasty retreat.”

“But then he went on, ‘Democracy doesn’t just happen by accident, we have to fight for it,’” he noted.
“Well, notwithstanding the argument that the US and NATO troops should never have bothered to try to bring democracy to that part of the world anyway, he hasn’t fought for it has he?
“There’s footage of armed Taliban fighters standing behind a newsreader like they will be behind me right now, as they deliver the headlines.
“Possibly the most pertinent image of all is if Taliban fighters dressed in US military gear looking exactly like Marines, what a metaphor that is for America’s sorry end.
“I wonder how the mainstream media in America feels today. They hounded Trump relentlessly, they peddled scandal after scandal, they tried to topple him every single day like they were playing presidential Jenga.”

“There’s no doubt that that influenced the public at the ballot box, they gave him an easy ride,” Christys added.
“He was hailed as a hero, the saviour of America. Well, I wonder how they feel today.
“Let’s get back to that buyer’s remorse. Biden promised better international relations, but he’s annoyed most of the western world and handed a resource-rich nation in Afghanistan over to China and Russia.
“He promised competent leadership, well how’s that going? He promised to uphold democracy, how long is it before he steps down, and America has an unelected president.
“I hope American voters kept their receipts because they should be asking for a refund. Joe Biden looked at his watch while those coffins came out the back of the plane. The reality is, the clock is ticking on his presidency.”
