Why are these people running the country?
Anyone who watched Rep. McCarthy’s scathing press conference has got to be wondering how we got here, how could it have come to this?
Unknown numbers of Americans stranded behind enemy lines, international embarrassment, a complete betrayal of our allies, and a devaluation of U.S. credibility globally are just some of the effects of Biden’s foreign policy disaster.
All of this going on and Democrats are pushing socialist infrastructure bills through government, and trying to put a needle in your arm.
In case you missed it, you can watch the entirety of the press conference below:
Kevin McCarthy just delivered one of the most devastating press conferences I have ever seen. Democrats are the real insurrectionists. They have taken the long march through our institutions, and are now destroying us from within. https://t.co/5WOWUgVPYT

While countless Americans are stranded in Afghanistan, Speaker Pelosi is crowing that her $5 trillion socialist spending spree is a “good day for America and Democrats”.

McCarthy told Fox News:
“The president’s misguided decisions run the risk of creating the largest international hostage situation we’ve ever faced as a nation,” McCarthy, R-Calif., said at Capitol news conference on Wednesday.
Biden has faced bipartisan criticism for honoring the Taliban-backed withdrawal date for U.S. troops of Aug. 31 as Americans and Afghan allies are still seeking evacuation from the Kabul airport. The U.S. military is currently stationed at the airport and undertaking a major logistical operation to get Americans and others on outbound flights from Kabul.
McCarthy called the withdrawal effort in Afghanistan the “the biggest foreign policy failure” and he accused Biden of turning his back on Americans.

Kevin McCarthy doesn’t believe evacuating all U.S. citizens by August 31st is possible, as reported by Washington Examiner:
“I’m less confident after leaving that briefing,” Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said at a press conference following the briefing. “There’s no one in the world outside of Joe Biden who thinks we’ll get everybody out by Aug. 31.”
“We have a moral obligation to ensure that we get American citizens out and our Afghan partners out — there are more of those folks in the country in Afghanistan right now that we have the capability to evacuate between now and the end of the month,” said Democratic Colorado Rep. Jason Crow, an Afghanistan veteran. “That’s why the mission must be extended, and we have to do what’s necessary to get people out, and it doesn’t have to do with a date on the calendar.”
