White House press secretary Jen Psaki is “out of the office” this week while President Joe Biden vacations at Camp David — all while Afghanistan rapidly falls to the Taliban in a stunning takeover, Fox News reported.

 at the end of the Vietnam war.

In addition, Biden reportedly “overruled” top U.S. military commanders when he authorized the full withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan. Vice President Kamala Harris also played a “key role” in Biden’s decision.

What did folks have to say about Psaki?

Anything else?

Biden issued a Saturday statement placing blame on former President Donald Trump for the Afghanistan debacle — after which Trump blasted Biden, saying the current commander-in-chief “gets it wrong every time on foreign policy.”

It’s also been reported that Biden will address the American people on the Afghanistan situation in the “next few days.”
