Russia’s invasion of Ukraine marks another humiliating foreign policy defeat for Joe Biden and his cronies in Washington, Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed.
“Tonight, it’s fair to note the obvious: The invasion of Ukraine is a humiliating defeat for Joe Biden,” Carlson said on his Friday edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“He’s our leader. He staked this country’s reputation, billions of dollars and the full force of the U.S. government, on preventing Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine. Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine anyway, and America is diminished by that.”
“It’s not the first time Joe Biden has done something like this. Less than six months ago, Biden oversaw an almost indescribably chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan,” Carlson noted. “He left American citizens behind. He armed the Taliban with advanced weapons systems on the way out. It could not have been worse.”
“So here you have two historic foreign policy debacles in under a year. Is there a precedent for that? What’s the message of it? Well, weakness, obviously.”
“There’s no hiding this. The rest of the world sees it clearly. So do many Americans, if watching the invasion of Ukraine this week made you feel a little sick, this is probably why. Of course, you felt sorry for the Ukrainians being killed. But you also sense that this was a genuine disaster for us in America. And you’re right, it is.”
“Joe Biden is quickly draining the reservoir of America’s credibility and power that has accumulated over centuries of wise decision-making. Like the U.S. Treasury, this is not Joe Biden’s capital to spend. He is squandering something that others made. How much is left at this point? You hate even to think about it. Someday, we’re going to find out.”
Carlson pointed to Biden’s empty threats of sanctions that just days ago he promised would “deter” Russia, only to say the complete opposite just days later after Russia had in fact invade Ukraine.
“Who gives him these scripts? Do they not think we have access to YouTube?” Carlson asked. “Or maybe they’re just hoping Google will scrub it by the time he holds another press conference. You just told us on Monday that the purpose of these sanctions was to deter the invasion of Ukraine. So, at the very least, acknowledge they didn’t work as intended.”
“No one believes you anymore, Joe Biden. No one should believe you,” Carlson stressed. “It is very hard to take unserious people seriously. A serious president who cared would have reassessed everything America’s foreign policy and how it was administered after the Afghanistan withdrawal last August. That was a disaster.”
If that wasn’t humiliating enough, Biden was even duped by China in intelligence-sharing over Ukraine.
“According to the New York Times, ‘The United States met with China over three months to present intelligence, showing Russia’s troop buildup near Ukraine and to urge Beijing to help avert war. Chinese officials rebuffed the United States and then shared that information with Moscow,’” Carlson said, quoting the Times.
“Oh, yeah. So we went to China for help to prevent Putin from invading Ukraine at the very moment that Russia and China were forming a very public alliance against us. Did that really happen? Apparently, it really did happen. How long can this go on? And maybe that’s why Biden didn’t mention China during his press conference.”
“He gave them our intelligence and they gave it to Putin. Perfect. But don’t mention that or you’re a traitor,” he added.
