Last month, Joe Biden claimed that no military leader advised him to leave a small troop presence in Afghanistan. Today, General Milley and General McKenzie both confirmed their recommendation that 2,500 U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan. Which is it?

It’s abundantly clear: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris ignored the advice from the military and mislead the American people. Biden’s botched Afghan withdrawal could have been prevented and American lives could have been saved.

Michelle and I had fun surprising some of the hardworking women from the Chicago Women of Trades. We’re grateful for the work they're doing — not only to build the Obama Presidential Center, but also to make it easier for more people to follow their example.

At this point, the functional definition of "anti-vax" is the same as "grifter," "white supremacist," "contrarian," "misogynist," etc.: one who questions or defies liberal orthodoxy. That's how it can apply to those who advocate vaccines. These are not so much words as weapons.
