, a progressive host and former press secretary for President , voiced deep concerns this weekend about the climate of fear and violence, supposedly towards journalists, following the near assassination of former President .

During an appearance on ' “” with , Psaki addressed the tension and the possibility of violence in the wake of the assassination attempt. She emphasized that attributing the attack to Democrats and the media only heightens fears and escalates the risk.

In the debate against former President on Thursday, President made a claim that quickly drew widespread criticism. In one of his more cogent-sounding moments, Biden stated, “Truth is, I'm the only president this century that doesn't have any – this, this decade – that doesn't have any troops dying anywhere in the world.” The assertion sparked a storm on social media, where many were quick to point out its inaccuracy.

The Facts:

Contrary to Biden's claim, 13 U.S. service members lost their lives in a tragic suicide bombing at Kabul airport during the botched U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021.

In March 2023, a report in The Washington Free Beacon detailed how U.S. forces could have prevented the devastating attack by an suicide bomber at the Abbey Gate entrance to Hamid Karzai International Airport. Instead, the blast caused by the terrorist's explosive belt resulted in the deaths of at least 183 people, including 13 U.S. service members. Gripping testimony was given on Capitol Hill by one of the soldiers who survived.

U.S. snipers near the Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul, by then the only way out of -occupied country, had a chance to kill a suspected suicide bomber as he approached a crowded airport entryway.

Instead, they never received the authority to take the shot that could have saved hundreds of lives, despite having plenty of intelligence and enough time to act.

The Pentagon's initial narrative concerning the bombing quickly came under scrutiny. Despite skepticism, the Defense Department originally framed it as an unavoidable tragedy amidst the chaos of the withdrawal.

However, a U.S. Marine's GoPro camera footage and survivor accounts painted a starkly different picture.

WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

Backlash and Criticism

Biden's false statement didn't go unnoticed. Observers from across the political spectrum harshly criticized the president, questioning his memory and his grasp on key events during his administration. The debate performance was seen by many as a disaster, leading to calls for Biden to step aside as the Democratic nominee.

Potential Replacements

Should Biden decide to step down, several figures have been suggested as potential replacements. Names frequently mentioned include Vice President Kamala Harris and Governors Gavin Newsom of California, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania.
