Iraq War veteran Joe Saboe, who has beenÂ working to rescue Americans in Afghanistan, wasnâ€™t especially blunt in his appraisal but simply disagreed with host Grant Stinchfieldâ€™s assessment of the situation in Afghanistan.Â
â€œThis didnâ€™t happen under President Trump,â€Â Stinchfield declared. â€œHe wanted out of Afghanistan real bad… but he didnâ€™t pull out because he knew this would happen.â€Â
In reality, Trump had planned a much earlier withdrawal from the country.
Saboe noted that Trump wasnâ€™t particularly aggressive about getting Americans out of the country.Â
â€œWith due respect, Grant… we followed this closely for multiple administrations and we know that Trumpâ€™s administrationâ€™s efforts here were fairly weak, that they were trying to limit the number of people that would get out, and so there were coordination problems.â€
Stinchfield couldnâ€™t take it.
â€œCut him off, please,â€ he said, then raised his voice. â€œCut him off now! Cut him off now! Youâ€™re not going to blame this on President Trump on my show!â€Â
