Trump shreds WH ‘morons’ for blaming Afghanistan mess on him, reporters rage at ‘holiday news dump’

Former President Trump ripped into President Biden Thursday, blaming him for the catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal while slamming his “grossly incompetent surrender” as the White House conducted a classic “holiday news dump,” giving a report to journalists ten minutes before a press briefing.

“These Morons in the White House, who are systematically destroying our Country, headed up by the biggest Moron of them all, Hopeless Joe Biden, have a new disinformation game they are playing – Blame ‘TRUMP’ for their grossly incompetent SURRENDER in Afghanistan,” Trump railed on Truth Social.

“I watched this disaster unfold just like everyone else. I saw them take out the Military FIRST, GIVE $85 Billion of military equipment, allow killing of our soldiers, and leave Americans behind. Biden is responsible, no one else!” the former president raged.

Americans remember well the disastrous Afghanistan evacuation that resulted in the deaths of American soldiers and innocent Afghanis, many of whom helped the US, as the Biden administration pulled out our troops and left our people behind enemy lines. It had nothing to do with Trump despite how the White House is now spinning it. Scenes of Afghanis falling from planes and the Taliban slaughtering people in the streets are still fresh in the minds of Americans.

Despite that, the White House claimed on Thursday in a form of brazen revisionism that the evacuation wasn’t chaotic, according to the Daily Mail.


National Security Council spokesman John Kirby spoke at the press briefing where the “holiday news dump” took place and aggressively defended the Biden administration’s actions in Kabul during the disastrous withdrawal in August 2021.

Ten minutes prior to the briefing, the White House handed out a report that blamed Trump for everything.

CBS News senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe nailed him for it.

“So John, thank you for doing this, but I think I speak on behalf of my colleagues in this room, and we want the record to reflect that this was sent to us about 10 minutes before the briefing began, with little notice, and it’s the very definition of a modern major holiday news dump, you releasing this at the beginning of the high holidays and after months of requests from Republicans and the broader public,” he said.

“So why today? And is this all we get? And is this a response to the studies that were done by the agencies, or is this considered a summary of them?” he asked Kirby.

“We think that that was the responsible thing to do, and what you’re seeing today is the result, and the culmination of an awful lot of work, Ed,” Kirby claimed, before denying that there was any “effort here to try to obfuscate or try to bury something,” and insisting that it was a “fair summary” of the various agencies’ findings.

O’Keefe also questioned the report’s fixation on the Trump administration and the utter lack of accountability by the Biden administration.

“Nowhere in here does there appear to be any expression of accountability… by the president himself or others. Is there any, for what happened?” the journalist asked, putting Kirby on the spot and apparently angering him in the process.

“The fact that we digested and distilled some of the key points of that [agency findings] and put it in a public document, the fact that I’m up here talking to you about it, I think shows you how seriously the president felt about learning lessons from this withdrawal,” replied Kirby in a non-answer and an obvious attempt at deflection on who was responsible.

He also said the administration was “proud” of how the withdrawal was carried out and declared that no member of the administration would be fired for what happened, laughably asserting the investigation was not about “accountability.” Except, of course, when it comes to Trump. Kirby called the bloody withdrawal “deliberate, intensive, rigorous, and inclusive.”

“Nobody’s saying that everything was perfect,” Kirby contended. “But there was a lot that went right. 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.”

“All this talk of chaos, I just don’t see it,” Kirby inconceivably proclaimed. “I just don’t buy the whole argument of chaos.”

Foreign Affairs chairman Michael McCaul pointed out it was Biden who “made the decision to withdraw and even picked the exact date; he is responsible for the massive failures in planning and execution,” according to the Daily Mail.

“John Kirby’s comments during today’s White House press briefing were disgraceful and insulting,” McCaul charged.

Armed Services Chair Rep. Mike Rogers called the report a “spineless piece of fiction.”

“We know for a fact President Biden’s top military advisors warned him against leaving Afghanistan – he ignored their advice,” he recounted, according to the media outlet.

In answer to this insanity, Oversight Chair Rep. James Comer announced a new hearing on April 19 with the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).

Families of those lost in Afghanistan were enraged by the report blaming Trump while absolving Biden for the deadly withdrawal.

Roice McCollum’s brother Rylee McCollum, 20, died while guarding the Kabul airport on August 26, 2021. The blast killed Rylee and 12 other members of the US military, as well as 170 Afghan civilians.

She told the Daily Mail that her family was furious over the report blaming Trump.

“This administration is a disgrace to this country. They are destroying America from the inside out,” Roice emphatically stated.

“Of course, Biden would blame it on Trump, he said a couple of days ago they have to do everything in their power to keep Trump from getting elected again. It’s just propaganda. They are trying to manipulate public opinion,” she asserted. “Every time this administration is forced to acknowledge Biden’s incompetence as commander in chief, we get to relive Rylee’s unnecessary death.”
