Harvard professor says flag waving Kristi Noem 'unserious,' Kabul crisis is 'what happens' when US not serious

Gov. Kristi Noem suing Biden for canceling July 4 fireworks at Mount Rushmore

Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Pete Hegseth weighs in on South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s lawsuit against the Biden administration, calls for an investigation into the allegations against John Kerry and the latest news on Hunter Biden.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s decision to wave an American flag in a parade on Saturday explained why the Taliban is winning in Afghanistan, one Harvard professor claimed on Twitter. 

Tom Nichols, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and at the Harvard Extension School who writes for USA Today and The Atlantic, claimed that Noem’s American flag parade was “unserious, self-destructive, faux patriotic.”

Nichols posted a picture of Noem’s parade on Twitter with the caption, “Meanwhile, as Kabul falls.” He deleted the tweet, but then reposted it, explaining his reasoning.

“I deleted this because it was too short. I wanted to make the point even more directly, as I did here. A charlatan like Noem riding through a superspreader event with a flag while Kabul falls is America, 2021: Unserious, self-destructive, faux patriotic,” Nichols claimed.

“How does something like Kabul happen? It happens when you are no longer a serious country – when you cannot even deal with a pandemic and you think this nitwit waving a flag is a great idea. This is not a public that will engage in reasoned debate about the future of Afghanistan,” the professor argued.

“Joe Biden is literally on vacation right now you know…” Follett tweeted.

The United States is struggling with an increase in cases of COVID-19 due to the spread of the delta variant.
