ACCORDIN TO FOX NEWS
President Joe Biden was rendered speechless after a heated exchange with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy in his news conference on Thursday.
Joe Biden speaking to the press after delivering his speech in the afternoon following an Isis attack in Kabul that killed 13 US service members, including 11 Marines and a Navy medic, battled Doocy’s assertion that he was to blame for the chaos in Afghanistan.
During the argument, Biden alleged that Doocy was fully aware of the detail but refused to report that attacks on US personnel had merely ceased last year due to a promise by the then-US administration to leave Afghanistan by 1 May.
“I bear responsibility for fundamentally all that happened of late. But here’s the deal: you know, I wish you one day say these things, you know as well as I do that the former president made a deal with the Taliban. You know as well as I do that the former president made a deal with the Taliban, that he would get all American forces out of Afghanistan by May 1. In return he was given a commitment that the Taliban would continue to attack others, but would not attack any American forces,” Biden said.
His response sparked Doocy’s gesture: Do you think people have an issue with not pulling out of Afghanistan but the way things have happened?”
Joe Biden was left speechless by his questions and was caught stammering, he had to lay his hand on his head.
The Conservatives were elated by the exchange and cheered Doocy, arguing that Joe Biden had instead been weakened by the Fox reporter’s line of questioning.
