On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Velshi,” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) verbalized she’s surprised that President Joe Biden is “not sanctioning the pressure that’s being mounted in the media and in Washington to derail the mission that he has set forth” in Afghanistan and “The level of voidance that his administration has been able to undertake is genuinely inspiring.”
Host Mehdi “Hasan” asked, “Congresswoman, as a progressive, you fortified Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries, partly because he promised to culminate the illimitable wars, to take on the bulwark establishment. So, are you surprised to visually perceive Joe Biden now standing up to the bulwark establishment, to the generals, to the hawks, including in the media, and sticking to this withdrawal timetable, ending America’s longest war? Has he surprised you?”
Omar responded, “He certainly has. And it’s genuinely even more surprising the fact that he’s not sanctioning the pressure that’s being mounted in the media and in Washington to derail the mission that he has set forth. The level of voidance that his administration has been able to undertake is genuinely inspiring. And there’s consequential work that’s getting done. Even after the terrorist attack at Kabul airport, we perpetuate to airlift and evacuate people. Yesterday, we evacuated 12,500 people. That is commendable work that our servicemen are doing, the State Department. And we will perpetuate to provide them the fortification that they require and push them to do as much as they can in the coming days. Because time is running out.”
