What Afghan Blunder? CBS’s King Helps Clinton Tout Voter Suppression as Real Threat

CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Friday offered a disgusting assist to Hillary Clinton, aiding the Democrat’s partisan attempt to deflect blame from Joe Biden’s disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal. At one point, the 2016 presidential nominee tried to insist voter suppression was the real threat. King started with a relatively mild, and obvious, question about the President’s handling: “I think a lot of Americans are concerned about a threat risk here in the United States because of our withdrawal from Afghanistan. Do you share those concerns?”

Clinton pivoted, sliming: “Actually, I am more concerned about internal threats. We always have to be aware of, and protect against, external threats…. But I think every American regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum should be as worried if not more right now about when we’re doing to ourselves.” 

The violent mob that attacked the Capitol should be condemned for assaulting democracy. Absolutely. Yet, Clinton saw Republican voter suppression to be a bigger threat than the impact of Biden’s Afghanistan policy: 

If we are going to continue to hate each other, scapegoat each other, try to undermine each other, go after our institutions, our voting system, yeah, then we are putting ourselves at great risk. And that’s what keeps me up at night these days. 

How did King respond to this? Did she call out the obvious insanity? Nope. She marveled, “Yeah, you raise a very good point.The Democratic donor/co-host continued, “Already there’s discussion on whether we should put the barbed wire up at the Capitol. People aren’t thinking about that for now reason. Make a very good point.” 

And that was the ONLY question connecting the Afghanistan withdrawal to the marking of the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001.

TONY DOKOUPIL: We’ll talk about those changes in this hour starting with Secretary of State, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The background, of course, 3,000 Americans died on 9/11, more than that, in fact. And on that day, day after, Clinton visited ground zero in Manhattan. It was a year after she had just been sworn in ads New York’s junior senator. That was just eight months earlier. And on 9/11, she said that she hoped the catastrophe would unite the entire civilized world. Former Secretary of State Clinton joins us now. Madam Secretary, good morning to you. I think your hope for a united world came true if only briefly, and I want to get to where we are today all these years later. But let’s stick with the memories for a moment. You were a new senator in Washington, D.C., on 9/11. When you think back to that day, what stands out to you? 

DOKOUPIL: Yeah. Madam Secretary, I don’t think unity would be a word that people use to describe America today or the world today. Those attacks changed us in more ways than we can enumerate. If you had to pick one or two, what are the biggest changes to our country, to the world because of what happened on 9/11? 

GAYLE KING: You know, Madam Secretary, we have a new home here on Times Square. As thrilled as I am to be here, I admit I’m a little nervous sometimes. I’m looking around more than I normally do. I think a lot of Americans are concerned about a threat risk here in the United States because of our withdrawal from Afghanistan. Do you share those concerns? 

HILLARY CLINTON: I think you always have to be vigilant, Gayle, and certainly that unfortunately comes with living in the world as we know it today. But actually, I am more concerned about internal threats. We always have to be aware of, and protect against, external threats. But what really is tearing our country apart and threatening our democracy is what we saw on January 6th. And I unfortunately have seen so much of that kind of continuing divisiveness and hatred and ideological attitudes about our democracy, about each other. 

So yes, we have to be constantly aware of potential damage, attacks, threats from outside. But I think every American regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum should be as worried if not more right now about when we’re doing to ourselves. You know, we can take anything, we can overcome anything, we can come back from anything if we’re united. But if we are going to continue to hate each other, scapegoat each other, try to undermine each other, go after our institutions, our voting system, yeah, then we are putting ourselves at great risk. And that’s what keeps me up at night these days. 

KING: Yeah. You raise a very good point. Already there’s discussion on whether we should put the barbed wire up at the Capitol. People aren’t thinking about that for now reason. Make a very good point.
