Billboards have been seen in Pennsylvania that read “Making the Taliban Great Again!” coupled with a graphic of President Joe Biden holding a rocket launcher.
The billboards are apparently the work of former Republican Pennsylvania state senator Scott Wagner. He served from 2014 to 2018 in his state’s legislature.

Wagner Explains The Billboards
In an email to Fox News, Wagner explained why he decided to get behind the billboards mocking the president’s chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal.
“The pull out rushed through by President Biden had made us the laughing stock of the world,” Wagner told Fox News.
Wagner added, “The Taliban are openly stating that they ran the United States out of Afghanistan – they are now very emboldened.”
He believes that the liberties “young people have experienced since we landed in their country will be taken away now that the Taliban is in control.”

“What do we say to families who lost loved ones in the Middle East – the country these people served and died for left Afghanistan with its tail between its legs,” Wagner worried.

Biden’s Approval Rating At Record Lows
On the president, Wagner added, “It seems that President Biden was hell bent on rushing out of Afghanistan – his ego and lack on information is going to prove to be very bad for the United States.”
Biden has received broad criticism from both Republicans and leaders in his own party for how badly the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan has gone, particularly considering the Taliban is now back in control of the war-torn country.
The Political Insider reported on Wednesday that Biden’s approval rating was at record lows, particularly regarding his foreign policy, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

“With 42 percent approving and 50 percent disapproving of Biden’s job performance,” Quinnipiac reported, “This is the first time Biden’s job approval has dropped into negative territory since taking office. In early August, 46 percent of Americans approved and 43 percent disapproved of the way Biden was handling his job.”
“In today’s poll, Democrats approve 88 – 7 percent, while Republicans disapprove 91 – 7 percent and independents disapprove 52 – 34 percent,” Quinnipiac noted. “On foreign policy specifically, Biden performs even worse,” TPI reported.
“Only 34 percent approve of Biden’s foreign policy actions, versus 59 percent who disapprove,” TPI noted.
Wagner says the billboards will be up for two months.
