In a discussion on my SiriusXM program about the American troop drawdown in Afghanistan and the takeover by the Taliban, Preston from Colorado called in to claim “this is what liberals do”.
It was Donald Trump, however, who began this process and pulled thousands of troops out, which I pointed out. It was Trump who announced it to the world many months ago, and allowed the Taliban to organize. It was Trump who negotiated with the Taliban, sending Mike Pompeo to meet with the man who is now leading Afghanistan.
And who can forget that it was Trump who wanted to bring the Taliban to Camp David?
But Preston refused to acknowledge it, saying Biden is “letting an entire civilization collapse.”
Honestly, it was so comical that I couldn’t help but mock his cultish allegiance to Trump by saying, “your fuhrer” started this and I asked him to repeat after me.
I know — it’s not nice to mock people, but Preston was one of several Trump supporters who called and who refused to discuss facts. At a certain point you just have to let them know how ridiculous they sound.
Listen in and let me know your thoughts.
