CNN Urges Viewers to Go Easy on Biden: 'We Don't Know If' He Left Americans Behind
Left-wing propaganda network attempts to reshape narrative on Afghanistan disaster
Hosts on the left-wing propaganda network CNN are urging viewers to go easy on Democrat Joe Biden by claiming that "we don’t know" if any Americans were left behind in Afghanistan when the U.S. completed the pullout this week.
CNN, the mouthpiece of the ruling Democratic regime, is attempting to reshape the narrative surrounding the disastrous withdrawal of the U.S. military from Afghanistan.
Host Don Lemon is imploring viewers to not go too hard on Biden over his highly controversial decisions while pulling out of Afghanistan, which led to weeks of bloody chaos.
In response to co-host Chris Cuomo speaking about the people that were left behind in Afghanistan, Lemon suggested people should “be a little bit unemotional here” when blaming Biden for the crisis.
Lemon praised Biden for having “the guts to get us out of Afghanistan.”
He then claimed that “the administration is getting beaten up on this a little bit too much” following the deaths of 13 U.S. service members and hundreds of Americans being left behind.
"I think people should stop beating up on the administration so much because no matter how it ended, everyone wasn’t going to be happy with the way it ended,” Lemon said.
"So, if there’s any silver lining in this, it’s going to be what happens going forward.
"You can’t change the past, you can’t bring those lives back as awful as that is.
"And so, you know… I think the administration is getting beaten up on this a little bit too much because there’s a lot of blame to go around from four different presidents and who actually didn’t have the guts to get us out of Afghanistan because they were afraid of this moment and what an exit might look like.”

Cuomo noted that the U.S. military was highly effective in its role in Afghanistan as evidenced by the fact that there has not a major terrorist attack on the U.S. since 9/11.
"I do believe that there’s going to have to be accountability- we’re going to have to find out exactly what happened and what went wrong… it’s TBD - To Be Determined,” Lemon said.
"We’re still seeing what’s happening.
"You can’t get them out there- you can’t get them all out in five minutes.
"You can’t get them all out yesterday.
"So what happens going forward when we continue with this effort to get them out, and we start getting them out, as many out as possible.
"Then I think we should stop all, you know, running around like, ‘Oh my gosh! I can’t believe we left so many people behind!'”
"We don’t know if we left them behind yet,” Lemon added.
"We don’t know yet.”
"You can't get them all out in five minutes," Lemon huffed at the people outraged that Biden abandoned Americans. Attacking those people further, he suggested they were being hysterical and added: "We don't know if we left them behind yet." pic.twitter.com/43LPKaYGHB— Nicholas Fondacaro (@NickFondacaro) September 2, 2021
