Following the complete withdrawal of US troops, President Joe Biden was heckled Tuesday for leaving Americans behind in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan while he was surveying the damage from Hurricane Ida in New Jersey.
During the hostile welcome in the disaster-hit state, Biden was visiting a devastated neighborhood in Manville that experienced flooding from the remnants of the storm and speaking with authorities when onlookers erupted over the commander-in-chief's botched Afghanistan withdrawal.
"My country is going to sh*t and you're allowing it!" one woman lambasted Biden off-camera. "And I'm an immigrant and I'm proud of this country!" she yelled. "I'd give my life for this country. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves."
"All this for a f— photo-op?" one man scoffed. "You ain't gonna do sh*t!"
"My best friend died in 2011 in Afghanistan for what?" an outraged man asked out of view of the filming camera. "For this guy to pull this sh*t? You leave them in ruins and leave Americans behind!" The man then said to the law enforcement officers assisting Biden: "He will leave you behind, you guys protecting him."
"Leave no American behind!" the first woman shouted.
"Resign, you tyrant!" a man screamed. A pool report said the heckler was standing with a Trump flag in his front yard, the New York Post reported.
Multiple protesters were photographed giving Biden the middle finger as he drove from Hillsborough Township to nearby Manville. Other pro-Trump demonstrators had greeted Biden's motorcade along its route through North Jersey.
One individual held an expletive American flag-turned-protest banner that said "F— Biden And F— You For Voting For Him."
Biden has attempted to justify the administration's disastrous Afghanistan retreat as "the logical, rational, and right decision to make" and defended the White House's mishandling of the military withdrawal.
