Psaki Responds to Calls For Biden’s Resignation, “This is Not a Day for Politics”


Joe Biden is in hot water.

Several GOP politicians are calling for him to resign over his incompetence in Afghanistan.

That list is growing by the minute.

Biden made an absolute fool out of himself earlier today in a press conference, when he attempted to shift blame for the 12 American service members who were killed in Afghanistan.

Biden shirked responsibility, and placed the blame on President Donald Trump instead.

A reporter asked Jen Psaki about the White House’s response to the GOP’s call for Biden’s resignation.

Psaki responded that today was “not a day for politics” due to the 12 Americans killed.

It's not a day for politics according to Jen Psaki...

Despite this, Joe Biden just played politics by blaming President Donald Trump for US troops dying in Afghanistan..

The calls for Biden's resignation are intensifying as Psaki tries to do damage control by pretending to be virtuous.

Several GOP politicians are now calling for Biden to resign according to Fox News:

A long list of GOP politicians are calling for President Biden to either be impeached or resign from office after the deadly attacks near Harmid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan.

Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the United Nations, called for Biden's resignation — but expressed concern about leaving Vice President Kamala Harris in charge.

"Should Biden step down or be removed for his handling of Afghanistan? Yes," she tweeted. "But that would leave us with Kamala Harris which would be ten times worse. God help us."

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo.,  added: "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."

Prior to Thursday's attack, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. had already said Biden said he favored impeaching Biden. Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., called for Biden to resign along with Vice President Kamala Harris and several national security officials.

"Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Antony Blinken, Lloyd Austin and General Milley should all resign or face impeachment and removal from office," she said.

Former Trump White House advisor Kellyanne Conway sarcastically responded: "#Impeach? Why? It's not like they called the President of Ukraine or anything."

Members of Congress offered up plenty of criticism. "If President Trump can be impeached over a phone call, then the time has come to IMPEACH Biden for gross negligence in Afghanistan," said Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas.

"Americans deserve better. We deserve better than someone who willfully IGNORES the WORST crisis in decades."

In another tweet, he added: "There will be time for investigations and assigning blame later, but we do need a new Commander-in-Chief NOW! The leadership that got us into this does not have the competence and will to get us out. People are now officially dying!!"

The Hill has more:

GOP Sens. Josh Hawley (Mo.) and Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) on Thursday joined a wave of other Republicans calling on President Biden to resign, a demand that that surged in the hours following multiple bombings around the airport in Kabul, killing at least 12 U.S. service members.

Hawley said in a statement issued by his office that Biden “has now overseen the deadliest day for U.S. troops in Afghanistan in over a decade, and the crisis grows worse by the hour.”

“We must reject the falsehood peddled by a feckless president that this was the only option for withdrawal,” wrote Hawley, who in April vocalized support for removing all U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

“This is the product of Joe Biden’s catastrophic failure of leadership,” he added. “It is now painfully clear he has neither the will nor the capacity to lead. He must resign,” said Hawley, who previously called for the resignations of Biden's security team over the situation in Afghanistan.

Blackburn issued her demand in a tweet, also calling for the resignations of Vice President Harris, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley.

The GOP senator argued that the president and each of the named administration members “should all resign or face impeachment and removal from office.”

America is fed up with Joe Biden.
