This is just becoming pathetic.
Joe Biden refuses to do his job.
On Sunday, Biden told a reporter that he’s “not supposed to take any questions, but go ahead.”
The reporter started: “Mr. President, on Afghanistan…”
Biden suddenly interrupted her:
“I’m not gonna answer on Afghanistan now,” and then walked away.
Absolutely disgusting act from a so-called “leader.”
Fox News with more:
President Biden blew off a question about Afghanistan after offering to take questions at the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters in Washington on Sunday.
Biden was at FEMA to address the response to Hurricane Ida, which strengthened to a Category 4 before making landfall in Louisiana earlier Sunday.
“I’m not supposed to take any questions but go ahead,” Biden told Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs.
Jacobs began, “Mr. President, on Afghanistan—”
“I’m not gonna answer on Afghanistan now,” Biden interjected before walking away from the podium.
Our friends at Breitbart have more on Biden’s refusal to answer questions:
Biden ignored the line of questioning just a few days before American troops are expected to fully withdraw from Afghanistan — and only a few days after suicide bombers killed more than 100 people, including 13 U.S. troops at the Hamid Karzai International Airport.
The president did release a statement on Saturday saying the Kabul airport could face more attacks before August 31.
“The situation on the ground continues to be extremely dangerous, and the threat of terrorist attacks on the airport remains high,” the statement reads. “Our commanders informed me that an attack is highly likely in the next 24-36 hours.”
The White House on Friday also walked back Biden’s promise that the United States government would evacuate any American who wanted to get out of Afghanistan.
More than once, Biden has walked away from reporters asking about Afghanistan. A day after the suicide bombings in Kabul, Biden again declined to answer reporters about the catastrophic withdrawal during his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.
Biden has been dodging Afghanistan all week, and his handlers have tried to steer him away at every opportunity.
Biden is showing his cowardice to the whole world.
