U.S. Rep. Moore to the media covering Afghanistan: ‘Take off your DNC t-shirts and your DNC hats’ — ‘Don’t let them give you a scapegoat’

Tuesday, Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) spoke at a House Freedom Caucus press conference on Capitol Hill and called for the media to hold the Biden administration accountable for the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

The freshman congressman warned the media that the Biden administration would try to “come up with a scapegoat.”

He urged the media not to accept a scapegoat and hold President Joe Biden accountable.

“[W]e have a crisis now in Afghanistan that is the making of this administration,” Moore said. “They need to be held accountable. We need to hold the Administration accountable for what they’re doing, and it starts at the top, guys. You’re going to see the Biden administration try to come up with a scapegoat in the next few weeks. It’s going to happen.”

“Be ready, media,” he continued. “Be paying attention. Do your job. Do your job as the American media. Take off your DNC t-shirts and your DNC hats and get out your press credentials, go talk to your sources, and find out who’s driving this debacle in Afghanistan and the Department of State.”

“Don’t let them give you a scapegoat, guys,” Moore added. “Don’t let that happen on your watch. You have the freedom of press for a reason. I mean, we can do what we can do as Congress – Pelosi’s not doing her job, obviously. She needs to call us back in. We need to hold her accountable. I say that we vacate the chair. I’m going to say one last thing: Joe Biden must go.”
