The White House released a report on the chaotic 2021 U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan on Thursday and, to the surprise of few, the Biden administration is largely blaming Donald Trump for some of the conditions that they opted to abide by.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy took National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby to task at the White House daily briefing over the botched withdrawal that resulted in the unnecessary deaths of 13 U.S. service members, and Kirby’s response resulted in the phrase “lying POS” trending on Twitter.
“After the country has had a couple months to review this, and as the government has, people don’t have an issue with the decision to order troops out of Afghanistan. It’s with the way this president ordered it done,” Doocy said. “There were children being killed. There were people hanging off of Air Force jets that were leaving. And you’re saying that you guys are proud of the way that this mission was conducted? You’re proud of that?”
“You bet,” Kirby replied, after explaining that the administration “got more than 124,000 people safely out of Afghanistan.”
“Proud of the fact that American troops were able to seize control of a defunct airport and get it operational in 48 hours? You bet. Proud of the fact that we now have about 100,000 Afghans, our former allies and partners, living in this country and working towards citizenship? You bet,” he continued. “But does that mean that everything went perfect in that evacuation? Of course not.”
“Nobody is saying that everything was perfect, but there was a lot that went right,” he added. “And a lot of Afghans are now living better lives in this country and other countries around the world because of the sacrifices and the work of so many American government officials. So, yeah, there’s a lot to be proud of.”
What an idiotic lying POS! https://t.co/uNoYpVSxGu

As remarkable as that response was, Kirby went one better when Doocy asked who was going to get fired over the debacle in Afghanistan.
“The purpose of [the report] is not accountability… the purpose is to study lessons learned,” Kirby said.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter… see if you can pick up on a trend:
If only someone in the room would just say loudly, “You’re a damn liar, even your Boss admitted to leaving military equipment over there, the damn Taliban posted pictures of the military equipment, and boosted about it, so you “COME ON MAN” lying POS! https://t.co/tH2a2NY9wp
