President Joe Biden’s dismal performance during the crisis in Afghanistan has exposed the “leader” of the free world to rare criticism from the establishment media with some acknowledging the damage to America’s global standing that has occurred as a result of the horrifically botched withdrawal.
Joining the growing list of critics speaking out against the nation’s 46th president is Meghan McCain, the daughter of longtime Senator John McCain who prior to his death from brain cancer was one of the biggest champions of the war and who is probably spinning in his grave over Biden’s dishonorable surrender to the Taliban.
McCain unloaded on Biden in a blistering post on Instagram, writing that “I have been physically ill, more depressed than I have been since the beginning stages of the pandemic and filled nothing short of pure rage and anger since the calamity of a ‘pull out’ which will be seen as one of the greatest foreign policy catastrophes of my lifetime,” she said.
The former co-host of ABC’s “The View” also excoriated Biden for his lack of transparency and failure to engage in actual press conferences where he responds to questions from reporters, ridiculing him as “Jimmy Carter on acid” in a scathing post on Twitter.
No press briefings from the Biden White House from the President or his staff. They’re all on vacation.
He is like Jimmy Carter on acid and he and his team will be remembered in history worse than him.
Also anyone in the press want to to jump in on criticism of him in hiding? https://t.co/fnAWjqluWE

McCain wrote on Instagram: “I am furious our President was so incompetent not to see what every expert on the planet could have seen coming. I am furious for my friends and family who have been fighting in these wars since I was 16 (many who have lost limbs, had their life terrorized by PTSD from their experiences in war and deployments, or worse). I am furious seeing our allies and innocent Afghan citizens who trusted us are being left to be slaughtered or so desperate to escape the pure evil the Taliban will bring in that they are falling out of f—ing planes,” referring to the iconic images that some have compared to the fall of Saigon.
“This is not who America is, this is not the values this country was founded in. Our veterans deserve better, the innocent Afghan people and our allies and translators who have stood by us for the past 20 years deserve better,” she continued. “The shame, dishonor and embarrassment the Biden administration has brought to our country will take generations to undo. Not to mention our standing in the world and the cruel reality that the likelihood of another significant domestic terror attack has not risen to the highest levels since 9/11 and will usher in Isis 3.0.”
However, some on Twitter pointed out that McCain lacked credibility on the matter given her previous white knighting for Biden.
“Should have known last fall Biden was inept. It was patently obvious. You bought the ticket, Meghan. Now take the ride,” conservative Ned Ryan tweeted.
She voted for Biden and so did her mother

Last week, McCain tweeted that the chaotic withdrawal was an “absolutely shameful moment” for the U.S., adding that Biden’s cutting and running would lead to the Taliban slaughtering of Afghans who America depended on over nearly two decades, including women and children.
This is an absolutely shameful moment for our country. Shame on this administration. God be with our allies and the women and children in Afghanistan.

Even if you thought leaving Afghanistan was the right decision -this is a reckless, dangerous, blundering, and embarrassing withdrawal.
We left our translators, women, children, people who helped us for 20 years to be slaughtered & our president just called a lid until Wednesday

Her sustained barrage against Biden and his administration also included videos of terrible scenes from Kabul and the ongoing evacuation, calling for “every single person in the Biden administration” to be “dragged in front of congress and held accountable” for their role in enabling the coming carnage.
May God forgive our country for what we have done to these people.
And may every single person in the Biden administration be dragged in front of congress and held accountable for this. Every single one. https://t.co/Q0jAnJkNzs

Everyone in the Biden White House should be forced to watch this.
These are consequences for your reckless, insane, plan-less actions. Are you proud of yourselves?!? https://t.co/j49EMkEfUv

McCain’s mother Cindy recently appeared on “The View” where she bragged about how proud she was of her role in helping Biden win the election and may also now be experiencing buyer’s remorse over the unfolding Afghanistan catastrophe.

Such harsh words from a normally reliable ally could be a bad omen for Biden whose dictatorial style of governance could be put to the test with high-profile defections by sympathetic conservatives who found common ground with Democrats in the brutal war that they waged on former President Donald J. Trump.
Continuing defections could doom Biden’s ambitious agenda to radically transform America and render him a lame-duck less than a year into his presidency.
