At the same time that there are 100 Americans on the tarmac in Afghanistan and hundreds, possibly thousands more are trying desperately to make it to an airport in order to get out of Afghanistan, Chuck Schumer, the Majority Liar in the Senate claims that all Americans who were abandoned by Biden are there because they want to be. I don’t believe it. Schumer says he is now concentrating on getting Afghanis out. I do believe that.
Schumer made the claims in an interview with a WSYR-TV reporter at the New York State Fair on Tuesday.
“At the moment actually, I’m still focused on trying to get some of those brave Afghans out.”
“The Americans, all of whom wanted to come out, have come out, praise God.”
“But there are a lot of Afghans who have risked their lives for our soldiers and others. Many got out, some didn’t, and I’m still working on trying to get some of them out.”
After Schumer got caught in this lie, he sent out a spokesman to say that he misspoke when he said that.
The spokesman said:
“He misspoke and regrets the confusion his comments have caused.”
“He intended to say, as he has been saying, that the U.S. will get everyone out that wants to get out. And he will keep working with the Biden Administration to help everyone who wants to get out.”
More than a hundred Americans are reportedly waiting at an airport in Mazar-i-Sharif while the State Department negotiates their release with the Taliban. Several planes chartered through the efforts of a charity organized by BlazeTV founder Glenn Beck are awaiting the outcome of negotiations to fly those Americans and other Afghans out of the nation.
Only four Americans, a mother and her three children, have been confirmed to have used the overland route to escape Afghanistan. On Monday, one of the organizers of that mission accused the State Department of trying to take the credit for the rescue that rightfully belongs to private party efforts.
