Sean Hannity criticized President Biden on Wednesday, saying he did not pay enough tribute to the 13 US service members killed in Afghanistan during the annual State of the Union address.
“[Biden] didn’t even bother to mention the 13 American soldiers who died as a result of its disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, or the Americans who were trapped behind enemy lines,” the “Hannity” host said. . “Today, by the way, is day 200…Joe and the media haven’t just let them down — they’ve moved on and moved on. Pretty unforgivable.”

The Ministry of Defense added that the attack was “not preventable”.

Hannity was also taken aback by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s response to Biden discussing the dangers the US military faces in Iraq and Afghanistan. As Biden explained the toxic fumes and “burning pits” test, Pelosi raised both hands in fists, rubbed them together as he stood and smiled.
Hannity couldn’t understand Pelosi’s “very cheery reaction to Biden’s comments about the Iraq war hotspots,” he said.
“Can someone explain this to me?”
