President Joe Biden got elected largely because millions of voters found him caring and empathetic. Mr. Nice Guy, the argument went, would be a welcome relief from the sometimes abrasive and combative President Donald J. Trump.
But Biden’s winning, grandfatherly persona is among the hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Americans abandoned in Afghanistan. As the president retreated from Kabul, to the beat of the Taliban’s drummer, Nice-guy Joe morphed into Mean Mr. Biden.
The president’s true colors now shine with searing clarity. He has exposed himself as calculating, callous, and cruel.
●Reuters reported August 31 that Biden spoke by phone on July 23 with his then counterpart in Kabul. According to a leaked, official transcript and audio recording, Biden told Afghan President Ashraf Ghani: “I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban.” Biden added, “whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”
These astonishing comments unmask Biden as a calculating, global-grade liar.
