Joe Scarborough spoke candidly about the current state of the Democrat party during his show Wednesday. He predicted the Republican Party will easily campaign against them on the basis of the border crisis and withdrawal from Afghanistan.

“Let’s talk about the mess right now that I think the Democrats are facing,” Scarborough said. Yet he tried to sound hopeful, pointing out that the next presidential election is still a year and a half away.

But if Democrats want to know what they’re going to be facing, let’s talk about it right now. Because if I were a Republican running, I would say, ‘Democrats can’t protect us across the world. Democrats can’t protect our street. And Democrats can’t protect us at the border.'”

Then, he admitted that his own network doesn’t sufficiently cover the border crisis. “There is — we don’t talk about it enough — there is a massive border crisis on the southern border right now,” Scarborough said. “And if Democrats don’t want to talk about it, that’s fine, it will find them over the next 16 months politically.”

“And then there’s this chaos in Afghanistan,” Scarborough said. While a majority of Americans were against keeping troops in Afghanistan, a similar majority disagreed with the way Biden withdrew them. “Democrats have to understand this is coming. And I don’t know where mission control is on the Democratic side, but somebody, Donny, needs to get that and they need to start responding.”

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago

The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.

The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57%  the preceding quarter.

The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.

592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:

They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.

Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.

Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
