(RightIsRight.co) – It’s rare to find a major Hollywood celebrity without some sort of presence on Instagram, but for years, the Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie stayed away from the platform. However, she recently joined the Facebook-owned social media site to sharply criticize President Joe Biden’s handling of the crisis in Afghanistan.
On Friday, August 20, Jolie shared a letter from an Afghan girl who feels “imprisoned again” now that the Taliban is back in control of her nation. The Maleficent star actor emphasized how horrendous Biden’s choice to leave Afghanistan the way he did was, as it resulted in “a failure almost impossible to understand.”
The same day, Jolie published a piece with Time magazine, calling Biden’s “cut and run” plan to leave Afghanistan “the most chaotic way imaginable” to leave the nation. She lamented the loss of freedom for millions of Afghan women, girls, journalists and artists whose lives are now in danger.
Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) shared her surprise that even progressive Hollywood celebrities like Jolie are willing to speak out against Biden’s “incompetence.”
How ironic it is to hear Trump-hating celebrities like Angelina Jolie express their complete shock over Biden’s incompetence.

Jolie is the Special Envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and spent time in Afghanistan just before September 11, 2001. She has first-hand knowledge and experience with the country, its people and its struggles. This knowledge makes her willingness to speak out against Biden’s incompetence hold a lot of weight. Hopefully, criticism from such a well-revered celebrity will help America open its eyes to Biden’s lack of leadership and inability to run the most powerful nation on the planet.
