Ted Cruz: A ‘Disturbing Pattern’ When Biden’s Microphone Is Perennially Cut Off
CRUZ: "Well, I would say it’s a disturbing pattern where it seems they cut off his microphone any time he might say something that his handlers don’t want. There’s no doubt that President Biden’s capacity is severely diminished and his White House handlers amplify that impression when they keep him locked up in a basement all day long. Whether it is Biden himself or the political operatives around him, every decision about Afghanistan and sadly just about every foreign policy and domestic policy issue that’s come before this White House has been decided as a matter of pure politics. When it comes to Afghanistan, Joe Biden and his administration have presided over the worst foreign policy catastrophe in a generation. They put politics in front of everything else, they abandoned Americans behind enemy lines and it was a disaster. We were routed there because Joe Biden surrendered. He surrendered the Bagram airfield to the Taliban, he fled and left hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans in harm’s way, and we are going to be paying the price, our nation is going to pay the price for the President’s weakness and incompetence for years to come."
