Editor,

The chaos that has erupted in Afghanistan, despite assurances from our government that our exit was well planned, brings to mind a favorite saying, “Plans are great until you get punched in the face.”

Don't forget Trump had a May exit plan. He and Pompeo "negotiated" with the Taliban last year. Donald Trump was publicly saying, 'We have to get out of Afghanistan at all costs. It's not worth it." Mike Pompeo met with the Taliban and tried to 'negotiate' something.

They ended up getting rolled almost as bad as Neville Chamberlain.

They set this up to fail.

Meanwhile on Fantasy Island, MyPillow Guy says Drumpf will be reinstated on New Year's.

Actually Mr. Donnelly, in addition to a punch in the face, the Taliban is also rubbing bungling Biden’s face in dirt – as the world can see. Unfortunately dirt is just the beginning. It's going to get much worse until we get a real leader in charge. Biden and Democrats own this.

Terence,

Our great President Biden is just finishing the mess your conman orange idol started. I know you have all of Trump's speeches on tape so watch his Wellington, Ohio speech and get back to us. BTW, how are you doing with your bamboo fibers?

Hey Taffy, we’re all still waiting for your list of Biden accomplishments. Since you’re not forthcoming, let me help you out… Biden tells Americans to social distance during the hurricane, but unfortunately, those warnings are falling on deaf ears on the Americans Biden abandoned in Afghanistan. The UK Parliament holds Biden in contempt. Biden, nor any of his incompetent staff, can tell us how many Americans are still abandoned in Afghanistan (maybe they’re all still trying to pass their CRT courses). I bet that in addition to China, the Taliban were ecstatic when Biden stole the election.

Terence,

Like I said, TRTRT. BTW, how are you doing with your bamboo fibers?

Oh dear, I’m afraid we broke Taffy. Either that, or Taffy is channeling his inner Biden. Get well soon!

BTW, here’s another bumbling Biden accomplishment since you’re still holding out on us – driving the UK, Germany, Italy, and France to turn to Putin and Russia for assistance in Afghanistan. Putin isn’t hiding in his basement a la your idol Biden.
