BREAKING: Biden Campaign confirms accuracy of video of Joe Biden calling troops ‘stupid b*stards’ while deployed to Middle East

The video below summarizes why I expect to stop working in political journalism this year. I don’t want to waste my life toiling in a field where old men lie on camera and face no consequences at the hands of those to whom they’ve lied. I’m sick of this.

Great question from an Air Force Veteran. If you hate war, you can’t agree with Biden’s decades of support for intervention and war! Time to bring even more troops home 🇺🇸

These airport rallies by @realDonaldTrump is a stroke of genius. A quick “in-and-out” in an easy to secure location and the majestic Air Force One in the background the whole time.
