Andrew Neil launched a scathing attack on Joe Biden as he returned to GB News.
The broadcaster announced his break from the new channel in June, but made a comeback last night to discuss the escalating situation in Afghanistan.
Following the fall of Kabul to the Taliban, the US President defended the withdrawal of troops from the war-torn country, stating that he ‘stands squarely behind’ the decision.
Speaking of the politician’s remarks during a discussion with Nigel Farage, Andrew hit back at his ‘shameful’ actions.
‘Joe Biden didn’t have to continue with that, Joe Biden didn’t have to see that deal through,’ he said. ‘He could have changed it.
‘I think he was playing politics.

‘He see the midterm elections coming up, he could lose the Senate, he could lose the House.
‘That tends to happen in the early midterm elections, and he wants to be able to say, “Hey, I’m the one who got us out of Afghanistan”.
‘I think it was very short-sighted because this story is not over by a long way. I think you could see some terrible turn of events.’
Andrew’s appearance is the first time he has been on GB News for more than a month, when he announced that he would be taking some time off from the platform.

The channel has been plagued with issues since it launched on June 13, including numerous technical fails, awkward blunders and zero viewers for some shows.
Ahead of his time off, he urged viewers to stick with them despite the teething moments, stating: ‘Before I take this break, let me say this: yes, we had a bit of a rocky start with the launch of GB News.
‘We’re a start-up, they’re always a bit rocky these start-ups. But we are up and running as you can see, we get better every day and there’s clearly an appetite for what we’re doing.
‘And in two short weeks, we’ve already built a loyal audience which has beaten all of our expectations, it’s often bigger than the other news channels and it’s growing.’
‘On behalf of GB News, I say to all of our viewers, thank you,’ he added.
‘We won’t let you down and you ain’t seen nothing yet.’
