The Biden administration has faced widespread criticism for its chaotic execution of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The fundamentalist Taliban regime retook the region faster than any officials predicted, resulting in thousands gathering at the Kabul International Airport to escape Taliban rule and retaliation.

Despite a deadly terrorist attack that killed more than a hundred Afghans and 13 U.S. service members, more than 100 thousand people were evacuated from the region in the month of August.

And on August 30, the last American troops left Afghanistan, ending 20 years of war that cost more than a trillion dollars and stole hundreds of thousands of lives.

Republican elected officials and media personalities have sharply condemned the handling of the withdrawal, but the administration got praise from a surprising source: far-right pundit Ann Coulter.

Throughout her career, Coulter has demonstrated a repeated apathy, and even aversion, to basic human rights.

In 2001, Coulter said as the U.S. was entering Afghanistan:

"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity,"

Now, Coulter—who emerged as a critic of former President Donald Trump because his policies supposedly weren't cruel enough to immigrants—is singing a much different tune.

Coulter praised Biden at Trump's expense for finally getting the U.S. out of the war.

People were stunned, even horrified, to find themselves agreeing with the likes of Coulter.

Others had a more sobering response.

Somehow we find it unlikely that Biden considered Coulter's opinion on the decision to withdraw.

Iowa AG Dragged For Ironically Boasting At RNC That Republicans Put Criminals 'In Jail'

Iowa Attorney General Brenna Bird was criticized after telling the audience at the Republican National Convention that the GOP is known to "put criminals where they belong: in jail"—only to then encourage everyone to vote for convicted felon former President Donald Trump.

In May, Trump became the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes. The jury found him guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to illegally influence the 2016 election. His sentencing was set for July 11 but has now been delayed in the wake of a Supreme Court decision granting him sweeping immunity protections.
