Kilmeade blasts Biden for ignoring press questions on Afghanistan

>> Harris: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. KEEP US UPDATED. IN THE MIDST OF AN INTERNATIONAL CRISIS YOU MAY THINK PRESIDENT BIDEN WOULD DO MORE THAN JUST ONE SIT-DOWN INTERVIEW WITH ABC’S GEORGE STEPHANOPOLOUS. BUT JUST YESTERDAY DURING A NEWS CONFERENCE ON VACCINES, THE PRESIDENT IGNORED QUESTIONS THAT WERE BEING SHOUTED BY REPORTERS BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT WE DO WHEN SOMEONE KEEPS WALKING AWAY FROM THE MICROPHONE ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WE RAISE OUR HAND AND WITH ALL DUE RESPECT MR. PRESIDENT, TAKE A QUESTION. ABOUT THE TALIBAN TAKING OVER AFGHANISTAN. HE DIDN’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT. >> President Biden: WE JUST NEED TO FINISH THE JOB WITH SCIENCE, WITH FACTS, AND WITH CONFIDENCE. AND TOGETHER, AS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WE’LL GET THIS DONE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND MAY GOD PROTECT OUR TROOPS. THANK YOU. [PEOPLE SHOUTING QUESTIONS] >> Harris: HE DIDN’T EVEN LOOK BACK. CRITICS TORCHING THE PRESIDENT’S LACK OF TRANSPARENCY. >> PRESIDENT BIDEN WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE MEDIA OR THE PRESS DURING HIS GRAVEST FOREIGN POLICY DISASTER. WE STRUGGLE TO GET INFORMATION AND DATA ON WHAT’S TRULY GOING ON THERE. >> HE DOESN’T SAY ONE WORD ABOUT AFGHANISTAN? HE IS TOO PROGRAMMED. HE IS TOO SCRIPTED. AND EVERYBODY IS NOW SEEING WHAT I’VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR TWO YEARS WHICH IS THIS IS A PRESIDENT THAT YOU TAKE HIM OUT OF A TELEPROMPTER AND HANDLERS ARE TERRIFIED WHAT HE WILL SAY. >> Harris: BRIAN KILMEADE IS FROM “FOX & FRIENDS” AND HOST ON THE RADIO. EXITING IS NOT THIS PRESIDENT’S THING. YOU HEARD JOE CONCHA DESCRIBING HIM AS PROGRAMMED, SCRIPTED. I WOULD SAY ROBOTIC AS HE TURNS AWAY FROM PEOPLE AND WALKS AWAY AND LOOK AT THE EXIT NOW IN AFGHANISTAN. >> IT COULDN’T HAVE BEEN DONE WORSE. I’M EMBARRASSED FOR THIS COUNTRY. WE DESERVE BETTER FROM OUR LEADERS. I LOOK AT THE SECRETARY OF DEFENDS AND CHAIRMAN FROM THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF. NO IDEA IT WOULD FALL SO QUICK. NO IDEA HOW AMERICANS WILL GET HOME? WHEN WE LOSE SOMEBODY BEHIND ENEMY LINES WE RISK OUR LIVES TO GET THEIR BODIES BACK. YOU WON’T GET CIVILIANS OUT OF CITIES WHERE THEY WERE HELPING OUT? YOU DON’T LIVE IN AFGHANISTAN TO GO ON VACATION. YOU LIVE TO HELP A COUNTRY GET BACK ON ITS FEET THAT WE WERE HELPING TO REBUILD. SO AT THE VERY LEAST THEY ARE BALLPARKING HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY IN AFGHANISTAN. HOW DO YOU KNOW, PRESIDENT BIDEN, IF YOU GOT EVERYBODY OUT? BY THE WAY, I WANT EVERYBODY THAT HELPED US ELIGIBLE FOR REFUGEE STATUS I WANT IT. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE’RE PULLING OUT THE RIGHT PEOPLE. >> Harris: IT’S HARD TO DO. HAVE YOU SEEN THE TARMAC? THAT’S DIFFICULT TO DO. I DON’T KNOW THAT WE’LL BE ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY VET EVERYBODY FOR SIV STATUS AND DO ALL OF THAT. IF THE CHOICE IS NO NOT BE ABLE TO DO THAT BUT GET ALL THE AMERICANS WE HAVE. THAT IS ONE HECK OF A BINARY CHOICE. YOU HEARD THE GENERAL, GENERAL KELLOGG. YOU CAN’T SAY NO TO THE AMERICANS ON THE GROUND. IT IS DISINGENUOUS FOR THE PENTAGON OR THE STATE DEPARTMENT TO SAY THEY DON’T KNOW WHO IS THERE. YOU DON’T THINK THEY HAVE A LIST? HECK, THEY HAVE A LIST OF US WHEN WE SAY STUFF ON FACEBOOK. THEY ARE WORKING WITH BIG TECH TO FIND OUT WHETHER OR NOT WE’RE SAYING THINGS WE SHOULDN’T SAY. THE ADMINISTRATION SAID THAT. YOU KNOW THEY HAVE A LIST OF PEOPLE IN AFGHANISTAN WITH AMERICAN PASSPORTS. >> I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S WORSE. IF THEY HAVE A LIST AND DIDN’T TELL US OR REALLY DON’T HAVE A LIST. I’VE HEARD A LOT OF YOUR SHOW AND I’VE BEEN ON 90 MINUTES ALREADY. WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE KEEP SAYING THIS. UNDER WHOSE PLAN DO WE GIVE UP THE BEST BASE, MILITARY BASE IN THE COUNTRY? WHEN GENERAL AUSTIN COMES OUT, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE AUSTIN COMES OUT AND SAYS I ONLY HAD ENOUGH TROOPS TO GUARD THE EMBASSY. MR. SECRETARY, YOU LEFT THE EMBASSY. WHY DID YOU LEAVE THE EMBASSY? WHY DID YOU GET ALL OF OUR DIPLOMATS AND STICK THEM ON THE TARMAC? IF YOU HAD ENOUGH TO PROTECT THEM AT LEAST WE WOULD HAVE HAD SOME TYPE OF ORGANIZATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE BUILT IN AND MAYBE THAT’S WHERE THE NAMES ARE. MAYBE SOMEONE GROUND UP THE WRONG LIST WHEN THEY HAD 48 HOURS TO BUG OUT. I’M SO EMBARRASSED HOW THIS IS HAPPENING AND HOW PRESIDENT BIDEN SAYS WE HAD TO EXPECT THIS CHAOS. WELL, WHEN SOMEONE FALLS OFF A PLANE TO THEIR DEATH OR HIDING IN THE WHEEL WELL OF A CARGO JET, THAT WAS FOUR DAYS AGO. NO, MR. PRESIDENT, IT WAS ONE DAY AGO. IT IS NEVER OKAY. YOU KNOW THAT SAIGON MOMENT YOU SAID WOULDN’T HAPPEN? THOSE SEEM LIKE THE GOOD OLD DAYS. THIS IS WORSE. >> Harris: THIS IS TEHRAN 1979 WHEN THEY TOOK OVER 50 HOSTAGES. THAT’S WHAT’S KEEPING HIM UP AT NIGHT. BY THE WAY, YOU MENTIONED AUSTIN. HIS FORMER BOSS WAS JUST ON. THAT’S WHO GENERAL KELLOGG IS. GENERAL KELLOGG SAID THAT AS HE WATCHED THAT PROCESSION WITH AUSTIN SAYING HE DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH OF THIS OR THAT THE. THAT. HE SAID SOMEONE IS TELLING HIM HE DOESN’T. HE DOES AND HE IS FORCED TO TAKE ORDERS FROM THAT PERSON. WHO WOULD THAT BE THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF? HE SAID YES. I WANT TO GET TO THIS THE VICE PRESIDENT QUIET ON THE CRISIS OF AFGHANISTAN AS SHE GETS READY TO HEAD TO VIETNAM. THE “NEW YORK POST” OP-ED IS ASKING WHERE IS KAMALA? HARRIS SILENT SIX DAYS AMID AFGHAN PULL-OUT CHAOS. REMEMBER THIS? THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID EARLIER THISIER WHEN THE PRESIDENT ANNOUNCED HIS PLANS TO WITHDRAW THE TROOPS. WATCH. >> PRESIDENT BIDEN ALWAYS SAID THAT HE WANTED TO BE THE LAST PERSON IN THE ROOM PARTICULARLY FOR BIG DECISIONS JUST AS HE WAS FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA. HE JUST MADE A REALLY BIG DECISION, AFGHANISTAN. >> YES. >> WERE YOU THE LAST PERSON IN THE ROOM? >> YES. >> YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE? >> I DO. >> Harris: BRIAN. >> OKAY. YOU WERE THE LAST PERSON IN THE ROOM. PEOPLE SAY KAMALA HARRIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS OR ARGUED AGAINST THIS MOVE. OOPS. DANA ASKED A GOOD QUESTION. JOE BIDEN WAS WRONG ABOUT FOREIGN POLICY DECISIONS IN 40 YEARS. HE ADMITS HE WAS IN THE ROOM. NOW KAMALA HARRIS IS ON THE RECORD. LET’S BE HONEST. THERE IS NOTHING THAT INDICATES THAT SHE IS UP FOR THIS JOB. NOW FOR HER STAFF WHO BY THE WAY HATE EACH OTHER, AT EACH OTHER AS THROATS. THAT’S A STORY CAME OUT AND NOT DENIED THREE WEEKS AGO ARE DECIDING IT’S A GREAT IDEA TO GO TO SINGAPORE AND CHECK THIS VIETNAM TO REASSURE OUR ALLIES. THAT WHEN TAIWAN GETS RUN OVER WE WON’T DO ANYTHING? WHAT COULD HER MESSAGE POSSIBLY BE? WHAT COULD THAT MESSAGE BE THAT WOULD BE REASSURING? WHAT HAS SHE SHOWN SHE REPRESENTS AMERICAN MIGHT OR WANTS TO USE IT? >> Harris: I HAVE ONE MORE. ONE OF THE MANY JOBS THAT PRESIDENT BIDEN GAVE VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS WAS THE BORDER. IT IS NOT WORKING OUT. THE BIG PROBLEM WITH THE BORDER AND HOW POROUS IT IS NOW THAT WE’RE DEALING WITH NOT JUST THE TALIBAN BUT AL QAEDA AND WHO KNOWS WHAT IT WILL BIRTH ON THAT SOIL WITH TERRORISTS COMING IN FROM WHEREVER AND NESTING THERE. THAT’S OUR POTENTIAL FUTURE NOW. WHY ISN’T SHE TALKING ABOUT SECURING THE BORDER? >> REAL QUICK. THREE JOBS, SELL EVERYBODY ON VOTING RIGHTS AT THE REPUBLICANS TAKING AWAY. TELL EVERYONE TO GET VACCINATED AND NUMBER THREE TAKE OVER THE BORDER. PLEASE TELL ME AT WHAT POINT WILL WE SEE ANY SUCCESS OR INTEREST IN DOING HER JOB? EXCEPT FOR BEING HISTORIC FIGURE WITH AN HISTORIC BACKGROUND AS THE FIRST FEMALE VICE PRESIDENT. SHE HAS BEEN TERRIBLE. WORSE WHEN PEOPLE GIVE YOU A JOB, GOOD OR BAD, DO THE JOB. DON’T NOT SHOW UP. WE’RE SADDLED WITH THIS LEADERSHIP, SADLY, FOR ALMOST THREE FULL YEARS PLUS. PLEASE GET SOMEBODY COMPETENT. THEY SHOULD BE HIRING THEM AT WHITE HOUSE. >> Harris: WE HAVE TO
