President Biden has lost CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the networks.
There has been widespread condemnation and horror at the administration’s reaction to the collapse of Afghanistan and the president’s lack of response.
The president has been sequestered at Camp David but has not issued any sort of statement or addressed the nation regarding the Taliban’s takeover of the country. Instead, the White House released a photograph of the president alone in a conference room hosting a video meeting with advisors.
“Why is Joe Biden in hiding? He should immediately address the nation and answer for the catastrophic situation in Afghanistan,” Sen. Tom Cotton wrote on Twitter. The Arkansas Republican is also an Army veteran.
“Conference calls between cabinet secretaries and senators don’t cut it in a crisis,” he said.
Former President Trump issued a terse statement condemning the Biden Administration’s fecklessness.
“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary. It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history,” the president said.
Two House Democrats also took to Twitter to blast the Biden administration for how they handled the Afghanistan withdrawal.
Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota said, “As a Gold Star son of the Vietnam War listening to the White House briefing on the Afghanistan War withdrawal, my heart particularly aches for the thousands of Gold Star families of an eerily similar and painful episode forty-six years later,” referring to Saigon.
“There’s no way to hide it. The situation in Afghanistan is another shame on this admin. Withdrawal was never going to be easy but it didn’t need to come to this,” Rep. Vicente Gonzalez of Texas tweeted. “The US must do everything in its power to help our partners & allies to safety & protect our national security.”
