Those aren’t facts - they are opinions. You’ve assigned malicious intents to Biden with no facts in evidence. The list of who to call on is not new and intended to be fair and give all journalists a chance. Biden is going back to tradition where wire services are usually first, then network and cable news and then others. Trump held very few press conferences and called on friendly journalists and sometimes those he didn’t like in order to call them names. Fox tried to claim there was a secret list but had no facts to back that off. Besides, Fox News, Wall Street Journal, Newsmax and CBN do get called on.

Give us the pictures of the 5000 Taliban prisoners Trump released and the on on the terrorist watch list. Otherwise it is just propaganda

Oh c’mon all Presidents have speechwriters. The right either claims Biden is senile and make fun of his stuttering or the only reason his speeches are good is because someone is writing them. Sheesh. 
Biden is definitely making his own decisions. He sees an opportunity to get things down that have been put off the last twenty years and is more concerned with that than worrying about politics at every turn. That’s why his agenda is bold. The previous presidents promised to end the war but didn’t get it done. Biden ripped off the bandage and is prepared to take the hits for it. War is messy and ending one is messy, too. Getting out quickly was the best decision.

Trump released 5000 Taliban prisoners from Afghan jails as part of the peace treaty Pompeo negotiated. The RNC removed all references to this deal as soon as Biden announced the withdrawals. They also removed the infamous photo op with Pompeo and the Taliban leader

That is an interesting argument but it doesn’t address what I said, it addresses what I did. Biden is failing cognitively. He does not write his own speeches.  That has all been shown to be true by many sources. So they must be malicious.

That is your opinion and mine is different. Read what these people who know Biden say about him. It’s not just my opinion, his cognitive decline is obvious.  Look at how quickly they rush him out before he can get many serious questions.

I don’t see it. I see people like Dr Marc Siegel who once had a stellar reputation claim Trump had no cognitive decline and that Biden is completely senile. The same people said this about Hillary Clinton. If you want to believe that bs, have at it

Hillary Clinton had no cognitive decline but she did faint once.

Trump is the one who made the deal with the Taliban and released 5000 prisoners. Yes Biden also pledged to get us out of Afghanistan as well. 20 years is long enough. Nation building only works when the country wants it. We’ve had enough Americans die in a wise we never should have been in. The war has also drained resources that should be spend on Americans 

You need to learn a bit about what you're talking about...

First of all, the 5,000 prisoners which Trump (or more accurately... the Afghanistan military) released are those which Americans had captured and held in the prison at Bagram AFB, but who had no proven direct ties with Al Quaida or ISIS. And that is what Al Jazeera themselves actually reported in Feb. 2019!

Secondly, there were 5,000 ~ 7,000 others also held at Bagram AFP prison but whom Trump would not allow to be released because they were known to have ties with Al Quaida or ISIS. 

On Aug. 27, 2021; Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said that “thousands” of ISIS-K terrorists have been released from the prison at the Bagram Air Base since President Joe Biden’s administration abandoned it on July 1.

During a Pentagon press briefing, Kirby was asked about the number of ISIS-K fighters who have been released from prison amid President Joe Biden’s chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, to which he responded, “I don’t know the exact number. Clearly, it’s in the thousands when you consider both prisons, because both of them were taken over by the Taliban and emptied. But I couldn’t give you a precise figure.”

But on Aug. 15, 2021; Fox News reported that...

Afghan officials estimated that the U.S. left about 5,000 to 7,000 prisoners in the air base when the Americans left, according to Axios.

The Pul-e-Charkhi prison, the largest in Afghanistan, contained a maximum-security cell block for Al Qaeda and Taliban prisoners. Afghan government troops surrendered control of the base without a fight.

So it looks like Fox News knows more than Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby or Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby purposefully hid the exact number. And they were the ones with direct ties to Al Quaida or ISIS. The same ones Biden left in their cells at Bagram when we pulled out and didn't notify Afghanistan Military that we were pulling out!!!

FWIW
