The Fox News host Sean Hannity used his show on Monday night to call on President Joe Biden to resign for going back on his pledge to stay in Afghanistan until every American citizen was evacuated.
Hannity said this while responding to reports that there are around 200 Americans still in Afghanistan at this time.
“Apparently Joe Biden was telling all of us an outright lie, every American,” Hannity said. “This transcends politics. This is a Democrat, Republican, conservative, or liberal.”
“This is the worst self-inflicted foreign policy crisis in modern American history,” he continued. “One of the worst in history. Everyone involved should be fired. Secretary of state, Blinken fired, Defense Secretary Austin fired, National Security advisor Jake Sullivan, fired, General Mark Milley — why he ever gave up Bagram — fired. They all need to be held responsible for this unmitigated disaster. Yes, Joe Biden too, fired.”
“If Biden had frankly any honor at all if he even knew what day it is, he would resign himself right now as well. Leaving Americans behind and putting their lives ins the hands of terrorists, in this case, the Taliban, and probably ISIS-K and al Qaeda, it’s beyond heartless,” Hannity added. “It’s cruel. It is unacceptable. This is not the American way.”
“According to a new ABC news full, the vast majority of Americans — we don’t get 84% of Americans to agree out much at all — up, but 84% agree U.S. troops should have stayed behind until every single American was evacuated,” he concluded. “Seventy-one percent say we should have stayed to make sure every ally of ours is evacuated also because we promised them that. Our word is supposed to be our bond.”
Earlier this month, Hannity called for Biden “to either step down or be removed” from Afghanistan for botching the situation in Afghanistan.
“If he doesn’t care about the lives of Americans abroad, if he’s not up to this job, he needs to either step down or be removed,” Hannity said. “If he just wants to live out his remaining days on a beach in Delaware, I’m fine with that. Step down. Let someone more capable take over.”
