Fox News' chief political analyst Brit Hume pointed out that Joe Biden and the White House sure are trigger happy recently after letting a Chinese Spy Balloon cross over ALL of America before shooting it down.
It wasn't so much Hume criticizing the Biden administration for quickly taking action against the recent flying objects that have been shot down, but asking where this urgency was when we KNEW that the object was a Chinese surveillance tool. Additionally, why won't Biden tell us WHAT he's been so eager to shoot down lately?
Hume thinks that it doesn't really make sense that Joe Biden would be so quick to open fire now after waiting for the balloon to cross over ALL of America.
If we first saw the object when it was over Montana, why did we wait so long to shoot it down, since these recent flying objects are proving there's no need to wait? Hume said:
Certainly, there has been a change in the administration’s policy or practice here after letting that first balloon as it turned out to drift all the way across the continental United States. They shot that one down. Now it seems they’re shooting everything down that they can see. And the interest interesting question what are we shooting down? We shot these things down. We don’t know what they are. We don’t know what they are when we shot them down. Jennifer Griffin quoted someone as telling her it might be sky trash. Oh great, we now have F-16s in the air over the continental United States, and we are shooting down possibly sky trash. I could kind of understand why the president doesn’t want to come out and talk about this yet because he doesn’t know what he has done.
"There has been these mysterious sightings of unidentified flying objects for years and years," Hume concluded. "And, you know, there is a whole kind of cottage industry out there people investigating it. And it’s sort of a serious undertaking and now we appear to be shooting them down."
