Fox News Correspondent Peter Doocy confronted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about why Joe Biden apparently thought it was acceptable to “joke” when asked about the crisis in Afghanistan.
During the White House press briefing, Doocy asked Psaki about an event earlier on Wednesday where Biden was about to crack a joke when asked about Americans who are expected to be stranded in Afghanistan after the Aug. 31 deadline.
“At the tail end of the President’s remarks today about cybersecurity, he was asked about Afghanistan… and he made a joke. So, what’s so funny?” Doocy asked Psaki.
In her response, Psaki attempted to deflect: “Well, I think the question he was asked…is about when he will provide information about a decision on August 31. I don’t want to paraphrase the question if that was an inaccurate description of the question.”
“Very important to a lot of people watching,” Doocy hit back.
“Of course, it’s a very important question. And I think what he conveyed, uh, what is that, umm, he has not, well, what I can convey from here, I should say, is that as he stated yesterday, and as the Secretary of State just stated, we’re on track to complete our mission by Aug. 31,” Psaki added.
Earlier on Wednesday, the White House cut off the audio feed for Biden after he was asked about Americans who are still stranded in Afghanistan.
“As he wrapped up a meeting on cybersecurity in the State Dining Room, Biden dismissed the press as they continued to ask questions. However, he appeared to answer one reporter’s query before leaving,” Fox News reported.
NBC’s Peter Alexander asked, “If Americans are still in Afghanistan after the deadline what will you do?”
“The White House then proceeded to cut off the audio feed from Biden’s response. It was unclear if the maneuver was coincidental or done to prevent feed viewers from hearing any off-the-cuff comments,” Fox News reported.
Other reporters at the White House confirmed that Biden smirked and did not answer the question about his plan for Americans trapped in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.
Former Mitch McConnell chief of staff Josh Holmes tweeted, “The White House cuts the President’s microphone. Pretty remarkable.”
Others also slammed Biden’s disgusting comments.
The Biden administration’s catastrophic response to the Afghanistan crisis has led to several top officials calling for Biden to be removed from office.
The Senate Intelligence and Foreign Relations Committees — both chaired by Democrats — are planning to investigate the catastrophic withdrawal.
Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott suggested using the 25th Amendment to remove Biden from the presidency.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has slammed Biden for his handling of the withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, which have descended into chaos over the weekend as Taliban forces seized much of the country.
McCarthy is now calling for investigations into Biden’s handling of the crisis.
Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said she is drafting Articles of Impeachment against Biden as the debacle on his Afghanistan withdrawal of troops continues.
Kamala Harris is also reportedly refusing to accept any responsibility.
A source reportedly said that Harris refused to be part of addressing the American people after the terrorist group took over Kubal, the capital of Afghanistan.
A source said Harris screamed: “They will not pin this sh*t on me!”
