Biden Falsely Claims 'No One Is Being Killed' in Afghanistan, Makes Most Flippant Hand Gesture - Knocks on Wood


President Joe Biden is struggling with the proper messaging regarding the disastrous U.S. pullout and Taliban takeover in Afghanistan, and one of his latest claims is downright false.

In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Wednesday, the president suggested there were no deaths during the chaotic withdrawal.

“There’s still a lot of pandemonium outside the airport” in Kabul, Stephanopoulos pointed out.

“Well there is, but look, but no one’s being killed right now,” Biden said.

“God forgive me if I’m wrong about that,” he said, “but no one’s being killed right now.”

And with his typical faux-folksy attitude, Biden then knocked on the small wooden table next to him.

The commander-in-chief is either completely clueless or intentionally lying to the American people.

At least 12 people at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul have died since the Taliban takeover began, Reuters reported.

Do you think Biden was intentionally lying about deaths in Afghanistan?

The U.S. Air Force is investigating one specific incident where Afghan civilians died after reportedly falling out of a C-17, along with “human remains” found in the landing gear of another C-17 after it arrived at an American military base in Qatar, Politico reported.

“OSI’s review will be thorough to ensure we obtain the facts regarding this tragic incident. Our hearts go out to the families of the deceased,” the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command said, referring to the service’s Office of Special Investigations.

That is just the airport. There is certainly carnage occurring elsewhere throughout the country.

The interview with Biden had other troubling issues as well, including the fact that he did not take any responsibility.

“No,” the president said when asked if the withdrawal could have been done better.

“I don’t think it could’ve been handled in a way that — we’re going to go back in hindsight and look, but the idea that somehow there was a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don’t know how that happens,” he added.

The president will blame anybody except himself, but the harsh reality is that his rhetoric will not change anything.

Afghan civilians, including women and children, are now subject to the cruel restrictions of the Taliban. Innocent people will undoubtedly die in the process.
