We don’t know how many casualties there have been at the airport in Kabul after a pair of suicide bombings Thursday (and maybe a third), but last we’d heard, 12 U.S. Marines were dead and hundreds were injured. It looks like President Biden’s “knock on wood” plan to avoid American casualties didn’t work.
Meanwhile, we have Speaker Nancy Pelosi prattling on about Women’s Equality Day and the attack on voting rights in our country. President Biden is set to address the nation and will almost certainly take no questions from the press. And not to be left out, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes is reminding us that probably a thousand people will die from COVID-19 today. Think about it.
Again, probably A THOUSAND people are going to die today from Covid.

I'm sure you'd have tweeted this if there was a school shooting, Chris.

Or a police shooting

It’s absolutely unbelievable that people take this halfwit seriously.

Bad optics here, Chris. Really bad.

How could Biden have done this? Blood on his hands.

And who is President right now?

Plus 72 in Kabul. None had to die.

There's a humanitarian crisis going on in Afghanistan but by all means, let's forget about it.

This is just a hifalutin way to say that you don’t give a shit.
Heart disease has long been the leading, pre-Covid cause of death in the United States.
How often do these people wax poetic about that? Never. https://t.co/5TxXwwlVIX

His point seems to be that we should stop worrying about Americans being murdered and abandoned in Afghanistan because of our joke of a president, and instead go back to yelling at the voluntarily unvaccinated more. https://t.co/CAAGqvuFZ5

The absolute state of US media where they deliberately want to conflate a terrorist attack with a global pandemic.

What is it with leftists that have to always have to disregard the significance of any event that doesn't suit their agenda yet they'll use a single shooting to argue for confiscating millions of weapons. https://t.co/298s0lFPqS

And about 3,000 babies will die today from abortion. We can do this all day. That doesn’t change that 12 marines have died directly because of this administration’s choices. https://t.co/eU1fEIybqE
