Look at Senator Tom Cotton doing Biden’s job for him.
Thank goodness some adults in our government are showing up for work.
If you’re an American stranded in Afghanistan, or know one who is, please contact my office immediately:
(501) 223-9081 or
The situation is dire, but we’ll do everything in our power to help keep you informed and to help get you out.

Hopeful US citizens trapped in Kabul can see this.
Cotton spokesman says that their office has heard from multiple US citizens in Kabul trapped behind Taliban checkpoints, who can’t safely reach the US perimeter and have no clear option for what to do. https://t.co/rY5QTSPLKd

You know this looks really really really really bad for Biden when Media Matters president Angelo Carusone tries deflecting by attacking Cotton … for trying to help Americans.
Hey, nobody ever said this guy was the brightest crayon in the box.
Imagine being trapped in Afghanistan in this moment..and thinking best person to call is Tom Cotton of all people.
Honestly, if someone’s in that situation where Tom Cotton is the only number they can call, they’d be better off just calling NYC’s 311. I mean really. Tom Cotton. https://t.co/IHR3GhIdLK

You have to wonder how absolutely broken by politics someone has to be to attack a senator for trying to help Americans. Especially when President Biden can’t be bothered to even make a statement.
RedSteeze dropped him.
Imagine criticizing Tom Cotton when the current president is currently on vacation. https://t.co/AOWA2sTZOm

Seems like you might not know much about how Senate offices work.

Government, how does it work?
This is really peak partisan brain. US senators intervene all the time to get government services for their constituents including things related to foreign entry and travel. David Brock really paying to instruct the evacuation of American citizens?

Nobody does peak partisan better than Media Matters.
Also imagine thinking that it's cool to make fun of people who risked their lives going to Afghanistan and are now in danger

Maybe those people are trying to call the WH and end up getting a 2021 Cheech and Chong remake….”Joe’s Not Here!”…response

Angelo is looking down his nose right into his sweater. "He's from Arkansas. And his last name is Cotton. He's like a Southern comic book character."

Don’t forget he’s probably raising his little pinky as well.
