Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of the United States military and civilians along with Afghan allies has led to many calling for his resignation.
But one supposed “Trump supporter” and conservative is gushing over Joe Biden and praising him for his handling of the Afghanistan crisis.
Days after 13 U.S. Servicemembers were killed near Kabul during a terrorist attack, commentator Ann Coulter took a swipe at Donald Trump and claimed Biden “had the balls to do it,” referring to withdrawing the U.S. from Afghanistan.
“Thank you, President Biden, for keeping a promise Trump made, but then abandoned when he got to office,” she tweeted after Biden’s speech to the nation.

Coulter followed up with another tweet attacking Trump.
“Trump REPEATEDLY demanded that we bring our soldiers home, but only President Biden had the balls to do it,” she wrote, including a screenshot of ” a few of Trump’s wuss, B.S. – I mean ‘masterful’ – tweets,” that she used to make her case.

It didn’t take long for many Twitter users to hit back at Coulter.
Ann Coulter like the fake media is now building the lame “Trump also said he would pull out of Afghanistan” straw man.
Yes he did but it’s treasonous acts of how Biden pulled out that has us all upset
Does Ann know Biden gave the Taliban $2 Trillion in military infrastructure?

Getting out of Afghanistan was apparently more important than getting our people (and equipment) out of Afghanistan.

Trump also said you can’t rapidly withdraw from Afghanistan because it would create a power vacuum
Withdrawing isn’t the problem withdrawing the military first creating chaos and killing innocent people in the process is the problem

You're pathetic. What a gross disappointment you turned out to be. Trump made the plan. Biden and the democrats cheated and stole the election. If the illegitimate IDIOT followed Trump's plan, 13 members of our military would not have been killed. Live with that. https://t.co/EtC0Vd9XmB

This had nothing to do with brining troops home.
It had to do with the way it was done.
But don’t expect Ann Coulter to use logic! https://t.co/aXt3z21TtT

Biden’s disastrous handling of the withdrawal has led to many Republican lawmakers calling for him to resign from office.
Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks added his voice to other Republicans who called for Biden’s resignation over his lackluster handling of the situation in Afghanistan.
“Time and time again, President Biden has shown the strength of a marshmallow and the intellectual capacity and judgment of a gnat,” Brooks wrote in a press release. “America, and the free world, simply cannot afford the risks of such a vacuous man in the office of President of the United States.”
“President Joe Biden has proven himself to be a complete and total fiasco. The horror of dead American military personnel giving their lives in defense of a botched Afghanistan withdrawal is Joe Biden’s pinnacle of incompetence,” Brooks continued before demanding his resignation.
Republican Rep. Jackie Walorski joined Brooks in his statement.
“As the president has said repeatedly, the buck stops with him – and I agree. The buck must stop here. President Biden has demonstrated that he is unfit to serve as commander-in-chief, and, therefore, must resign,” she stated in a press release.
Last week, New York Rep. Claudia Tenney and Florida Rep. Byron Donalds demanded Biden resign from office.
“I called for Biden’s resignation the first day this Afghanistan debacle began & it has grown more deadly by the day. Now the Pentagon is confirming a number of US & civilian casualties. I urge my colleagues to join me in calling for the resignation or impeachment of Joe Biden,” Tenney said.
“Earlier this week, I too called on the President of the United States to resign immediately following his haphazard withdrawal from Afghanistan. He has abdicated his responsibility and duties entrusted to him as POTUS, and he must RESIGN IMMEDIATELY,” Donalds said in a tweet.
“To say that today’s loss of American lives in Kabul is sickening does not begin to do justice to what has happened. It is enraging. And Joe Biden is responsible. It is now clear beyond all doubt that he has neither the capacity nor the will to lead. He must resign,” Hawley said on Twitter.
