If President Trump mumbled a word salad, the mainstream media would be all over it in a second and they wouldn’t let up. They’d want to know what he actually meant and they’d pose the question repeatedly.
But since Joe Biden is a Democrat with a lengthy history of regurgitating nonsense, he’s given a pass.
Liberal privilege, folks.
From ABC News:
ABC is being called out for editing out portions of President Biden’s interview on the deadly chaos in Afghanistan where he made gaffes about his son Beau — the network included the lines in the transcript, but did not put them on air.
A day after Biden’s interview with George Stephanopoulos aired on Wednesday, ABC published the full transcript online.
Sections of the interview revealed in the full transcript, including a part where Biden mistakenly said his late son Beau served in Iraq with the Navy instead of the Army, and in Afghanistan, where he wasn’t deployed, were omitted from airing.
Asked to respond to a veteran saying he wished the US could have left Afghanistan with honor, Biden said: “Look, that’s like askin’ my deceased son Beau, who spent six months in Kosovo and a year in Iraq as a Navy captain and then major – I mean, as an Army major. And, you know, I’m sure he had regrets comin’ out of Afghanistan– I mean, out of Iraq.
“He had regrets to what’s– how– how it’s going. But the idea– what’s the alternative? The alternative is why are we staying in Afghanistan? Why are we there? Don’t you think that the one– you know who’s most disappointed in us getting out? Russia and China.”
Beau was deployed to Iraq for a year in 2009 with the US Army Delaware Army National Guard.
Republican lawmakers are now demanding the ABC release the full footage of Biden’s interview.
