As we’re writing this, we’re getting word of another big explosion being felt far and wide in Kabul, meaning there could be even more casualties than there have been already. The only claim Biden supporters could make up until today was that the evacuations were proceeding successfully with no Americans having been killed. Now, with at least a dozen Marines killed, that talking point no longer stands, so they’re turning their frustration on Republicans.
As Twitchy reported, Crooked Media’s Brian Beutler claimed that Republicans are praying for American casualties “so they can wave the bloody shirt” and campaign on the Kabul attacks.
Now blue-check Chris Hahn, the “Aggressive Progressive,” is joining in, claiming that the GOP is rooting for our enemies because there’s a Democrat in the White House. Rooting for our enemies? The Biden administration are the ones sharing intel with our enemies because we’re counting on them to keep Americans safe.
If there were a Republican President the entirety of the GOP would be calling for unity and questioning the patriotism of anyone who spoke out against him in this moment.
But there’s a Democrat in the White House and the GOP is rooting for our enemies.

Good grief you’re a bad person. You claim they’re trying to score political points, but you’re doing the exact same thing.

When your policies enable terrorism, claim your enemies support terrorism. Yes, it’s totally those who disagree with you who are the awful ones, Chris https://t.co/4dkL16fjAg

This is sick comment.

The denial of reality it takes to actually believe this is staggering

This is nonsensical with absolutely no basis in reality. So ghoulish and embarrassing.

You’re leaving out the part where nearly everyone saw this scenario playing out in slow motion and questioned how tactically flawed it was.

Are you smoking crack? No one is rooting for our enemies. This NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED.

No one is rooting for the enemies… the administration is proving incompetent and cowardly regardless of party.

Not when the tragedy is a direct result of the President’s incompetence. He owns this. This catastrophe will be his legacy.

This is a strawman that only serves to distract from both today's tragedy & Biden's exquisitely poor decision making

Fuck you bro. I served my country, never root for my enemy.

What a despicable comment.

You're so off base it's pathetic. This is about moving out of a hostile territory with all our people and property in tow. I don't care what party has the house. This is a travesty of epic proportion. Fact that there hasn't been a retaliation yet is atrocious.

The administration has now, openly, killed its own citizens and allies.
No claims of incompetency can be made here. No-one is that incompetent.

If there were a GOP President, we wouldn’t be in this situation.

If we even had a Democratic president with more normal cognitive functioning, we might not have seen this bad of a mess. There is no way that Bill Clinton or even Hillary Clinton would have screwed up this badly.
— Ken Gardner (@KenGardner11) August 26, 2021
Or even Barack Obama.
I'm rooting for Americans and their allies not to die, which is why I don't understand how anyone can look at what leadership is doing and be satisfied.
— Hugh G. Falyor, III (@HughGFalyor) August 26, 2021
No…we're rooting for this braindead president to do something that will actually protect our people, get them safely evacuated and bring our troops safely home.

He’s set to speak in about half an hour … maybe he’ll reveal his contingency plan and put us all at ease.
