As Joe Biden’s poll numbers fell, the media coverage turned negative.
That’s a major issue for Biden.
And Fox News just obliterated Joe Biden over this major blunder.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Joe Biden held an event on cyber security with several Big Tech oligarchs.
After the event ended, NBC’s Peter Alexander shouted a question about the administration admitting it will leave behind American citizens in Afghanistan after the August 31 withdrawal deadline.
“What will you do if Americans are still there after the deadline?” Alexander asked Biden.
Biden – as usual – did not want to take questions.
But since Biden was seated, he could not flee like Biden normally does after delivering remarks on Afghanistan where the president turns his back on the press and shuffles out of the room.
Instead, Biden resorted to humor.
“You’ll be the first person I call,” Biden joked in response.
Biden joking about thousands of Americans hiding in their houses in terror of the Taliban taking them hostage or killing them did not sit well with many in the public.
At a subsequent White House press briefing, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy grilled Jen Psaki about Biden making light of a life and death situation.
“At the tail end of the president’s remarks, he was asked about Afghanistan,” Doocy then asked Psaki, “He made a joke. So what’s so funny?”
Psaki then deflected claiming – without citing evidence – that the administration would complete the evacuation of Americans by the August 31 deadline.
“Well, I think the question he was asked … was about when he will provide information about a decision on August 31,” Psaki responded. “I think what he conveyed is that — well, what I can convey from here, I should say, is that as he stated yesterday … is we’re on track to complete our mission by August 31. Obviously, there are discussions, and the president received a briefing just this morning.”
The administration claims there are 1,500 Americans in Afghanistan that want to leave.
But multiple Democrats including Adam Schiff and Sheila Jackson Lee emerged from an administration briefing and told the press they do not believe the administration can evacuate all Americans in Afghanistan out of the country by the deadline.
These sentiments expressed by multiple Democrats combined with other reporting suggested the administration was not telling the truth.
A Daily Caller report suggested the number of Americans stranded in Afghanistan by the administration is far higher than officials admit.
“Roughly 3,800 Americans have been evacuated from Afghanistan since July 29, with an estimated 8,000 remaining in the country, an official with direct knowledge of the situation told the Daily Caller on Tuesday. The official told the Caller that it seems ‘doubtful we are going to bring in 8,000 more Americans’ between now and the Aug. 31 deadline,” The Daily Caller exclusively reported.
Joe Biden’s overseeing the most humiliating American military defeat since Vietnam.
And many Americans could not believe Joe Biden decided this was an appropriate time to crack a joke.
