Big League Politics interviewed Jones after his series of tweets defending Trump.

The heroic Marine was deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan on separate tours, working as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (bomb) Technician.

On August 6, 2010, after defusing 40 bombs in just five days, Jones’ life forever changed after stepping on an IED while clearing a minefield. The incident, which triggered a massive explosion, resulted in the loss of both his legs above the knee and severe damage to his right forearm and both wrists.

On Thursday, after Trump launched the MOAB and many on Twitter lost their minds, Jones set out to explain the reality of the situation.

“We begged to use bombs on the minefield ghost town I lost my legs clearing. But by all means-continue your rhetorically righteous tweeting,” Jones asserted in a tweet.

Jones stated that it is important to allow generals who are on the ground, not the public, to make decisions that will benefit troops — as well as keep them safe.

The former-Marine also explained that the Obama Administration using all of the tools that they had available to them may have prevented his injuries, and the injuries of others.

Speaking to Big League Politics, Jones elaborated that the reason why it was so much more dangerous for our troops under the Obama administration was that “all tactics, policies, and procedures seemed so reliant on whether or not it would be a bad PR move, instead of whether or not it would save Marine lives.” He explained that the situation became so bad, that they eventually stopped bothering to call in air support, even when it was needed.

“We win wars because we own the air, and we own the night,” Jones said. “In 2010, military tactics were based on domestic politics instead what would be the best and safest tactics, because the New York Times commentary was a higher risk to the administration.”

Jones continued on to say that had this administration, with a higher priority on Marine lives than what the press will say, been in power, “I guarantee more of my buddies would still be alive.”

Since the incident, Jones has continued to be an inspiration, dedicating his life to helping other veterans.

“Determined to make the road to recovery easier for his fellow wounded veterans, Jones founded a peer visit program at Walter Reed, providing opportunities for others recovering to mentor and encourage newly-injured patients,” Jones’ biography reads. “His dedication and relentlessness led to an unprecedented year-long fellowship on Capitol Hill with the House of Representatives Veterans’ Affairs Committee, his work resulted in the creation of an annual fellowship for a wounded Marine.”

Joe Biden Goes Full Word Salad on CNN Chris Cuomo Appearance

No idea what he’s saying.

Published

on

Joe Biden appeared to lost his train of thought at least three times within the span of a few sentences during an appearance with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on Tuesday night, nominally speaking about the Wisconsin Democratic Primary in a manner that was almost impossible to understand.

Watch Biden’s answer to Cuomo’s question about the primary here:

I, you know, but I think that, you know – I think if there’s an election, if there was an election, if people – depending how many showed up, I think I’ll have done well, but who knows.”

What?!

Biden’s communication skills have increasingly come under skepticism as the likely Democratic nominee utilizes streaming technology to appear publicly on network and online broadcasts. This isn’t the first time he’s struggled to explain himself while appearing from his Delaware home, appearing to blend together words when speaking about President Trump’s efforts to marshal the necessary supply of facemasks last month.

Leading podcaster Joe Rogan questioned Biden’s mental acuity during an episode of his show last week, stating the the Democratic Party is “making us all morons” on account of Biden’s pending nomination. Rogan has been one of the major national commentators to question Biden’s cohesion on account of the video evidence of frequent and numerous confusing gaffes.

The Democratic frontrunner has forgotten that he’s running for President, thought that he’s campaigning in Vermont while actually in New Hampshire, and confused his wife with his sister during his Super Tuesday victory speech.

Now is the time for the Democratic Party to seriously ask itself if Biden’s mental acuity is at the level required to wage a major Presidential campaign and actually govern from the White House. Whether the DNC elite has the integrity to sincerely inquire about the matter is another question entirely.
