Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana on Monday posted a video statement on his YouTube channel attacking President Biden’s withdrawal disaster from Afghanistan.
“This was humiliating. It was an embarrassment. The president oughta hide his head in a bag,” Sen. Kennedy said.
“What we saw was stunning incompetence, there was no reason it had to be so chaotic. We all saw it – the panic, the fear, the chaos.”
Many lawmakers from both sides are calling out Biden for his failure to safely withdraw and evacuate Americans from the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.
Democrat Senator Mark Warner of Virginia who is the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee said:
“As the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, I hope to work with the other committees of jurisdiction to ask tough but necessary questions about why we weren’t better prepared for a worst-case scenario involving such a swift and total collapse of the Afghan government and security forces. We owe those answers to the American people and to all those who served and sacrificed so much”
Not just politicians, but even many media outlets who once praised Biden regardless of his declining mental state couldn’t help but point out the failure of this administration and the lack of leadership in this time. Many called out President Biden for not doing a press conference and taking any questions after his short scripted speech on Monday.
Even The White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was on a week-long vacation at this crucial time.
