Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) not only blamed President Joe Biden for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine but also pre-blamed him for any Chinese aggression toward Taiwan.
Appearing on Fox News Sunday, McCaul, the new chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, predicted a likely U.S. conflict with China would be Biden’s fault. And, while he was at it, McCaul slipped in some blame for Biden over the Ukraine war.
MCCAUL: [China is] going to look at a military invasion [of Taiwan], in my judgment. We have to be prepared for this and it could happen, I think, as long as Biden is in office projecting weakness as he did with Afghanistan that led to Putin invading Ukraine, that the odds are very high we could see a conflict with China and Taiwan and the Indo-Pacific.
Host Shannon Bream offered no pushback, nor did she question McCaul’s assertion that the Ukraine war is Biden’s fault.
This is today's Republican party: looking for power and stoking division at every opportunity.

It seems easy to write RW-like stuff. All one has to do is switch off any ability to exercise logic and reason. I am unfortunately totally handicapped because I don’t seem to be able to muster the required degree of bile and hatred.
