Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is probably more qualified to sell vacuum cleaners door-to-door than to hold his current job.
Just listen to his interviews! He doesn’t appear to be totally clueless like his boss, “president” Joe Biden, but it’s obvious that he’s holding back, lying, and misleading the American public.
Something is going down behind the scenes that we are not privy to. Granted, there isn’t anything unique about the Biden administration in that regard; every American administration has behind-the-scenes turmoil the American people are completely unaware of.
But this seems different; more evil, more sinister than ever before; and Blinken’s most recent television appearance proves it for everyone to see.
While being interviewed by Chris Wallace, usually a friendly ally to Biden administration officials, Blinken found himself pressed on the reality that Joe Biden doesn’t appear to be inhabiting the same universe as the rest of us.
Shockingly (or not so shockingly), Blinken was unable to answer a basic inquiry on whether Biden knew what was happening in Afghanistan.

The setup for this is the fact that Biden lied multiple times during his recent presser on the collapse of Afghanistan and those who remain trapped there. The long-overdue session lasted less than 18 minutes, with Biden taking four, total questions and telling obvious falsehoods throughout his answers.
Is the president not being told everything because his advisers and cabinet officials fear he’ll further compromise the operation?
Wallace, to his credit, doesn’t let Blinken get away with obfuscating and levels a follow-up, reiterating that words matter and Biden’s made no sense. Blinken is left shell-shocked again, refusing to answer the question on why Biden’s words were so contrary to reality.
Honestly, that may be one of the worst clips of the Biden presidency. Sure, there’s been a lot of embarrassing moments over the last eight months, but when Biden’s own secretary of state can’t quickly dispel the notion that the president is a vegetable with no knowledge of anything, something is deeply, deeply wrong. At some point, the obfuscation just becomes way too obvious to ignore.
Can the country really make it through three more years of this?
