Watch: The Secretary of State Literally *Walks Out* After Tough Question on Americans Stranded in Afghanistan

    The President of the United States is not the only member of the White House team who is willing to turn his back on the American people. On Monday, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken also showed his disrespect of Americans with his refusal to answer a critical question on Americans stranded in Afghnanistan. Watch:

    “Does this Administration regret its word that no American would be left behind?” Benny Johnson reported.

    “Secretary Blinken runs away and closes the doors on reporters and cameras,” Johnson noted.

    On Sunday, President Joe Biden refused to take a question on Afghanistan when he visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    After addressing FEMA on the hurricane, Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs asked him a question on the volatile situation. Watch:

    “I’m not supposed to take any questions, but go ahead,” Biden said.

    “Mr President, on Afghanistan,” a person off-camera began.

    “I’m not going to answer Afghanistan now,” Biden quickly responded.

    On Tuesday, Biden showed up five hours late to a press conference, and then left without taking questions.

    The president also did it after remarks on the Covid-19 vaccine given the prior Monday.

    And the president also did it the previous Wednesday.

    President Biden left without taking remarks on August 16.

    On Monday, U.S. General Kenneth McKenzie gave a stunning update on the Biden administration’s evacuation effort to get Americans out of Afghanistan.

    “Can you, give us a sense of whether or not they were any American citizens or any other civilians who were taken out on any of those last couple of C-17s that flew out this afternoon?” a reporte asked. “And can you give us a picture of what you saw with equipment and other things getting either destroyed or removed at the airport before they left?

    “It was… no American citizens came out on the last what we call ‘the joint tactical expatriation,” Gen. McKenzie said. “The last five jets to leave.”

    In a recent interview with George Stephanopoulos, President Joe Biden gave his word that he was committed to getting all Americans ahead of the Aug. 31 deadline that he agreed to with the Taliban or stay until everyone got out.

    “If there’s American citizens left, we’re going to stay until we get them all out,” Biden pledged.

    The Aug. 31 deadline is tomorrow.
