'Cut Him Off': Stinchfield Loses It On Guest Who Blames Trump For Afghanistan
Grant Stinchfield, a news anchor for Newsmax, lost his cool Wednesday on a guest who tried to blame Trump for Biden's failed withdrawal in Afghanistan. Army Veteran Joe Saboe started to repeat liberal gargle when Stinchfield shouted 'cut him off!'.
“Cut him off, cut him off now! You’re not going to blame this on President Trump on my show,” Stinchfield says. “That’s not happening. Now I appreciate the work that you’re doing, God Bless you for being a veteran, God Bless you for trying to get Americans out. But don’t come on this program and take the talking point to the left and blame President Trump. That’s not helping anybody. The Biden administration screwed this up from the very start. You know it, I know it, the country knows it.”

The liberal talking point came straight from Biden. In his first address to the American people following the failed Afghan withdrawal, Biden blamed Trump and then took credit:
"The previous administration’s agreement said that if we stuck to the May 1st deadline that they had signed on to leave by, the Taliban wouldn’t attack any American forces," the president said during his Tuesday speech shifting blame to negotiations Trump had with the Taliban before he took office. "But if we stayed all bets were off, so we were left with a simple decision. Either follow through on the commitment made by the last administration and leave Afghanistan or say we weren’t leaving and commit another tens of thousands more troops going back to war. That was the choice. The real choice between leaving or escalating."
Biden then tried to dismiss the bogus deadline that he should have extended. That decision left hundreds of Americans to the hands of the Taliban.
"I take responsibility for the decision," Biden said. "Now some say we should have started mass evacuations sooner and couldn't this have been done in a more orderly manner? I respectfully disagree."

Trump addressed critics of his plan in a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt last week and said that a Taliban attack on U.S. troops in March would have caused him to end the agreement and strike the Taliban.
"We would not have stood for any soldiers or any Americans being killed or shot at or hurt in any way," Trump said. "That was in there. And Hugh, for 18 months, not one American soldier was killed. Not one. Eighteen months. And that was because of the agreement."
Trump added, "It was conditions-based. Now there were many other parts of the agreement also. And if they violated them, you know that we went in and bombed the hell out of them, and they never would. They never would have come into Kabul."
