President Joe Biden is not the only one from his administration missing in action as he vacations in Camp David in the middle of a brewing political crisis in Afghanistan following his order to pull all US troops from the region. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has also taken the entire week off as the Joe Biden administration faces heat for their Middle East policy decision. 

According to a report by Fox News, the outlet reached out with questions to Psaki’s White House email address Sunday morning and received an auto-reply. On the same day, in the evening, Fox News once again attempted to reach the White House spokeswoman and received the same auto-reply, which stated that the press secretary and the current spokesperson for the White House would be unavailable for the next week. The auto-email from Psaki read, “I will be out of the office from August 15 to August 22" and asked that enquirers direct their questions to other people in the White House.

A number of people reacted to the news of Psaki being MIA in the face of a major political scandal. "'A spokesperson had no comment.' You have one job!" one of them said, while another noted, "Just like Chris Cuomo! Vacations have been quite perfectly timed lately."  A third commented, "This is the biggest Yikes I have ever seen. This administration is making the Carter Adim actually look alright." The next quipped, "She’ll circle back to you when it’s all over, never fear."

One more remarked, "Red knows to avoid this shameful disaster. She's not going to be the PR person in front." A commenter tweeted, "I am under the bed with the President and vice president." Another said, "That’s the best possible news for the country." One of them wrote, "Like @JoeBiden she wants to see how it all turns out. Leading from behind." A person reacted with, "Had to go help the taliban takeover in person."

A number of people from the previous administration such as former President Donald Trump and former White House physician Ronny Jackson, who served in the role under both Presidents Obama and Trump, called out President Joe Biden on Sunday as the POTUS avoided the public at Camp David.

“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary. It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history!” Trump said. “It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy.” Jackson said in a tweet: "OUTRAGEOUS! Biden needs to address the nation TONIGHT. If he’s not mentally capable of handling this crisis, he needs to resign IMMEDIATELY. America deserves better than this – OUR VETERANS DESERVE BETTER THAN THIS! Come out of hiding at Camp David and do your damn job!”
