The China Problem

SCAREDY JOE! Cotton Blasts Biden for Mishandling Chinese Spy Balloon, 'He Failed The Test'

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.06.23

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton stopped by Fox News Sunday with host Shannon Bream over the weekend to discusse just how badly President Biden botched the Chinese spy balloon situation.

“Unfortunately, the president failed that test,” Cotton said.

“The president was paralyzed for entire week by a balloon,” Cotton continued. “We should have shot this balloon down over the Aleutian Islands. We should have never allowed it to transit the entire continental United States. And I think there’s a lot of open questions that the administration needs to answer to Congress on behalf of the American people about why they didn’t.”

Cotton added that “Democratic presidents only take action like shooting down this balloon once their hand is forced. And I think on Thursday, when civilians in Montana identified this balloon, it — well, it forced the president’s hand.”

From The Daily Wire:

Cotton said that part of why Biden did not want to shoot down the spy balloon is because he did want to take any “provocative or confrontational” actions against “the Chinese communists.”

Cotton said that Biden likely would have taken no action on the spy balloon had residents in Montana not taken pictures of it and posted the pictures on social media.
