Former Democratic staffer turned ABC “Host” George Stephanopoulos sat down with Pres. Biden for an interview and the President was widely criticized for the contradictions and lies he told during the sit-down.
But as bad as Biden looked in the televised, ABC released the FULL transcript which revealed they cut out the craziest answer he gave, which would’ve had everyone questioning his mental state even more than they already are.
Tucker Carlson went through the transcript and exposed it last night in an amazing segment that went viral overnight.
First, Tucker plays the clip where Biden says he couldn’t have handed the Afghanistan withdrawal any better, which is insane by itself… But then he reads the transcript from the part that was cut out. WATCH this 5 minute clip then spread this everywhere because it is shocking.
Pres. Biden fumbles through an answer, seemingly forgetting whether his son was in the Army or Navy, and forgetting which country he served in.
Obviously, it’s up to ABC’s discretion which parts of the interview they want to show, but to not show an answer this bad is disingenuous, and covering up for the President. If this was Trump, they obviously would’ve shown it and it’d be repeated on all the networks for weeks.
This is the text of the exchange:
STEPHANOPOULOS: I– I think a lot of– a lot of Americans, and a l– even a lot of veterans who served in Afghanistan agree with you on the big, strategic picture. They believe we had to get out. But I wonder how you respond to an Army Special Forces officer, Javier McKay (PH). He did seven tours. He was shot twice. He agrees with you. He says, “We have to cut our losses in Afghanistan.” But he adds, “I just wish we could’ve left with honor.”
BIDEN: Look, that’s like askin’ my deceased son Beau, who spent six months in Kosovo and a year in Iraq as a Navy captain and then major– I mean, as an Army major. And, you know, I’m sure h– he had regrets comin’ out of Afganista– I mean, out of Iraq.
Holy cow, what is this dottering old man talking bout.
