Today the news out of Afghanistan just got worse and worse for the American citizens there (and others) trying to escape the country as the Taliban seizes control. Things got so bad that President Biden decided to address the nation about… Covid-19, vaccines, and why Republican governors opposing school mask mandates are putting people in danger:

The wheels have completely come off this administration — if they were ever on in the first place.
I didn't mind so much when the Tik Tok intern was in charge of vaccine massaging. It's when the intern took over getting people out of Afghanistan, that I began to question the Administration's choices.

At least we know who planned the withdrawal now. https://t.co/QDq08KyZMq

Who knows… maybe the TikTok guy would have handled the Afghanistan situation better than Biden (or whoever’s making the calls) did.
That nonsense will make negotiations with the Taliban impossible.

What an embarressment Biden WH is
They were playing hosts to tiktok clowns instead of preparing Afghanistan withdrawal https://t.co/eziXKmOGPy

I’d supposedly “white, middle aged, Trump supporters” are the “vaccine hesitant” who in the world thought this campaign would be perceived well? 😂 https://t.co/RXAhhlAP2P

It’s a clown show all around. And a disastrous one at that.

It’s likely he couldn’t possibly do worse than what’s currently going on. No mean tweets though.
