Not a Single Democrat Joined the Moment of Silence for Troops Killed in Afghanistan

Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks told reporters Tuesday that not one Democrat representative joined a group of Republicans for a moment of silence for the troops that were killed in Afghanistan last week.

He said, “I want to thank the Leader for doing what the Speaker of the House refuses to do and that’s to bring us here today to focus on doing everything we can do as members of Congress to provide oversight and support to bring every single American home.

“That’s my question today. Where is Nancy Pelosi? Why isn’t she here? Each and every one of us changed our plans so that we could be here today, yesterday and the days to come to do everything we can to safely bring every American home. We just had a moment of silence on the floor of the House of Representatives for the 12 American heroes that we lost in Afghanistan.

“Not a single Democrat joined us on the floor of the House in that moment of silence and that is a shame. But perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised. This morning, the head of the Democratic National Committee¬† sent out a press release claiming victory and saying that this president did what no other president could do as if he’s some kind of hero.”

You have to watch every moment of Banks’ riveting speech as he shreds the hypocrisy of Biden and House Democrats.
