President Joe Biden is facing a full-on reckoning over his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. Instead of taking responsibility, he seems to think he can simply laugh it off. On Wednesday, Biden was asked after a meeting on cybersecurity what his plan would be if Americans remained in Afghanistan after the Tuesday deadline for a full troop withdrawal. He proceeded to flash a grin before the White House cut his audio feed. As per usual, the White House clearly does not trust Biden’s ability to answer basic questions. His lackeys seem to have forgotten, however, that people in the room can still hear Biden even without a mic. NBC News’ chief White House correspondent Peter Alexander explained on Twitter that he was the one who asked the question, and he shared the president’s sarcastic response. “I asked President Biden what he will do if Americans are still in Afghanistan after the 8/31 deadline,” he wrote. “His response: ‘You’ll be the first person I call.’ Took no questions.” The entire exchange highlighted several concerns. First, the fact that Biden clearly had no intention of answering questions from the media is worrying, but not surprising.
