Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld: Calling Biden’s Evacuation A ‘Success’ Is Like ‘Polishing A Turd’

On Monday, Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld roasted Biden’s evacuation failures in Afghanistan, saying that pretending the mission was a success was like “polishing a turd.”

Fox’s resident comedian made his remarks on Fox News’ “The Five.”

Gutfeld: ‘This Is The Worst Military Operation I’ve Ever Seen’

Fox News reporter Trey Yingst joined “The Five” to talk about Afghanistan war coming to an end and the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal, which saw 13 American soldiers killed and many American citizens left behind.

Yingst said there were still Americans and their allies in the country, many hiding from the Taliban.  

Gutfeld replied, “It isn’t about the military. This was not a successful airlift. I’m sorry, it wasn’t.”
 
“This is the worst military operation I’ve ever seen and it had nothing to do with the military,” Gutfeld said. “It had to do with the government that let them down.”

Gutfeld said that despite America having the best military anywhere, the government’s decisions meant that they had been forced to rely on the Taliban for security reasons.

“Just putting that sentence together just makes you sad,” Gutfeld said.

Geraldo Rivera chimed in, “We lost the war, dude.”

Gutfeld: ‘I Think The Idea Of Saying How Successful This Is — We’re Polishing A Turd’

“I know we did. I know that and by the way, I’m very happy that we’re getting out of there,” Gutfeld said.

“But we can not forget how awful this was and how it let down a lot of people,” he continued.

“There are a lot of veterans who are looking at this and they’re sick to their stomach.,” Gutfeld finished. “I think the idea of saying how successful this is — we’re polishing a turd.”
