How Joe is being handled by the press--by Eric Boehlert

I have been following Eric Boehlert on Twitter for a while. I found this helpful, as I peruse the headlines (and comments sections) that do nothing but criticize the administration's handling of the situation in Afghanistan.

2. Exactly--

and he goes a little deeper, which helps me stop sitting here screaming at my laptop. I try to keep that to a minimum. My throat can get sore.

3. Joe is handling it in an honest, straight forward manner, unlike the twice impeached, one term

guy, who would just insult the reporters, and then walk out

5. reminds me of shark attacks

and Gary Condit. They can never let a moment pass when they can eviscerate a Democrat...any Democrat. I am very happy that Congress will have investigations. The truth about what transpired would be interesting, if it ever sees the light of day.

8. Not to mention the daily stream of "Clinton scandals"...

...that largely amounted to cow pies the Republicans were throwing at him. And all those reporters falling for Arkansas hucksters with tall tales to tell.

6. Excellent analysis

of how why press seems to have become so suddenly rabid towards Biden.

9. There is no way we could have gotten everything right.

It's not just Trump's treaty but he has messed up every single department of our government in the last 4-1/2 years, especially State, and that can't be fixed in 7 months. What he did to the refugee and asylum programs themselves was enough to wreck getting our allies out in time. I think, though, that they should do a special dispensation or whatever it's called to get the refugees out of there. The hell with visas for the time being. The ones without papers can be taken to Guam or someplace not inside the continental US, but everyone who truly wants out of there should be accepted. That part we can and should do, despite the cries of the Nazis.

And yes, I like Eric Boehlert, too. I don't do Twitter but I've been reading him off and on since Media Matters.
