Over 20 Republicans in Congress Now Calling on Joe Biden to Step Down Over Failed Afghanistan Withdrawal
We’ve only been in Biden’s presidency for eight months, and nearly two dozen Republicans in Congress are calling for him to step down.
The only reason all these lawmakers are comfortable saying this is that Biden’s failure in Afghanistan is so great, so incredibly terrible, that that public is justifiably outraged.
The Biden administration continues to treat this as a cycle of bad news that will eventually fade from public view. That is an error.
People are mad as hell.

The New York Post reports:
A Republican Party backlash against Biden is brewing as officials call for his resignation
Republicans promise to hold President Joe Biden accountable for his handling of the failed pullout from Afghanistan that has killed at least 13 US servicemen and more than 100 Afghans.
While various members of the Republican Party have begun pushing for impeachment or resignations, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif) hinted at the political repercussions for Biden, but did not say what they might be.
“I am extremely frustrated with this president,” he told reporters on Friday. “There will be a day of reckoning” …
Since Thursday’s attack, the number of Republican members calling for Biden’s resignation has risen to 23. The list includes representatives, Jim Banks (R-Id), Andy Biggs (R-Az), Elise Stefanik (R-NY) , Claudia Tenney (R -NY), Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga), Lance Gooden (R-Tx), Byron Donalds (R-Fl), Ronny Jackson (R-Tx) , Greg Steube (R-Fl), Mike García (R-Ca), Jody Hice (R-Ga), Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo), Tom Rice (R-Sc), Lauren Boebert (R-Co), Mike Waltz (R-Fl), Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa), Mark Green (R-Tn), Lee Zeldin (R-Ny), Warren Davidson (R-Tn), Kevin Hern (R-Ok), Barry Loudermilk ( R-Ga), and Roger Williams (R-Tx).
Representative Rice, one of only 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump earlier this year, raged on Twitter and asked Biden to “hand the job over to someone who can handle it.”
It’s all over Twitter.
Joe Biden should resign today.

Joe Biden has put Americans last since the day he took office.
Again, you need to quit.

You must resign.

President Biden retired from #Afghanistan BEFORE THE DEADLINE – Abandoning US citizens who are still on the ground and desperately need to be evacuated!
IF BIDEN REFUSES TO RESIGN, HE MUST BE FIRED!
This is an absolute disgrace!

Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal equipped the Taliban with $ 85 billion in military weapons.
You must resign. https://t.co/p601Hr8DuS
