Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of the United States military and civilians along with Afghan allies has led to many Republicans calling for his resignation.
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.
“As such, President Biden should, in the name of honor, resign as President of the United States. America needs a President who shows strength and competence in the face of dictatorial geopolitical adversaries,” Brooks said.
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.
A whopping 28 Republicans have now called for Biden’s resignation.

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.
“Joe Biden has blood on his hands. The buck stops with the President of the United States. This horrific national security and humanitarian disaster is solely the result of Joe Biden’s weak and incompetent leadership. He is unfit to be Commander-in-Chief,” Stefanik said.
“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.
