In case you hadn’t heard, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has absolutely no time for the GOP idiots who are calling on President Biden to resign amid the chaos in Afghanistan — a move, we’ll remind you, that was originally put into action by former President Donald Trump.
During a recent press briefing, Psaki had one hell of a message for the “swath” of Republican lawmakers who have called for President Biden to resign from the presidency over the attacks taking place in the Middle Eastern country, and she even got a little help from CBS News correspondent Nancy Cordes.
Cordes asked Psaki for the White House’s reaction to the GOP House and Senate members who have loudly and publicly demanded that President Biden leave his position of power.
“I want to know if the White House has any reaction to the swath of Republican lawmakers who are now calling on the President to resign over this,” The CBS News correspondent asked.

Psaki didn’t miss a beat, responding, “Well, Nancy, I have to say that seeing some of this occur, or be called for, or be put out on Twitter — you know, the backdrop here is the U.S. men and women of the military deployed on the ground are bravely continuing to implement a mission to save lives on the ground — American citizens, Afghan partners, many people that some of these same individuals are calling for us to evacuate.”
The White House Press Secretary went on to add, “Yesterday, they lost 13 of their own, and the President made absolutely clear that we are going to hunt down, go after, and kill the terrorists who are responsible. Everyone should be supportive of that.”
“So you’re saying now is not the time for politics?” Cordes questioned.
“Correct,” Psaki answered.
Just a day before this particular briefing, Psaki responded to the calls for resignation with one hell of a scolding, saying, “this is a day where U.S. servicemembers — 12 of them — lost their lives at the hands of terrorists. It’s not a day for politics, and we would expect that any American, whether they’re elected or not, would stand with us in our commitment to going after and fighting and killing those terrorists wherever they live, and to honoring the memory of service members. And that’s what this day is for.”
