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.
Biden’s also under fire after a new report revealed his administration negotiated a “secret arrangement with the Taliban” that resulted in members of the terrorist group helping get some Americans to the airport in Kabul so they could leave Afghanistan.
Biden was also yelled at on Sunday when he met with grieving Gold Star families at Dover Air Force Base following the death of 13 U.S. military personnel.
One distraught woman yelled in Biden’s direction, “I hope you burn in hell! That was my brother!“
