Congressman Brian Mast (R-FL) slammed Joe Biden’s messaging in regards to the tragic events that continue to unfold in Afghanistan.
Appearing for an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Mast — who lost both of his legs while serving as a U.S. Army explosive ordnance disposal technician in Afghanistan in 2010 — called Biden’s words “hollow” and suggested the “missteps” taken in the Central Asian country are a direct result of Biden being “intimidated.”
“His words are as hollow as his heart and his head. That’s the truth of it,” Rep. Mast said.
“All of this goes back to missteps from the very beginning.”
He continued: “You look at what’s gone on here. They’ve been messaging for the last week the exact opposite of what’s going on in the world. He said today he wasn’t going to be intimidated. This happened precisely because he was intimidated. Every step he has taken has been because he was intimidated along the way. He’s been worried about optics along the way.”
