Biden Faces Intense Backlash Over Plans To Address Nation In ‘Next Few Days’: ‘25th Amendment Time’The Daily Wire

President Joe Biden faced widespread backlash online on Sunday evening and into Monday amid a report from CNN that indicated that he will not address the nation for a few days about the crisis that is unfolding on his watch.

“Biden is expected to address the nation in the next few days about the crisis in Afghanistan,” CNN reported, citing a senior administration official. “One option under discussion is to have Biden return to the White House, though the official cautioned that they had not completely ruled out making the remarks from Camp David.”

Biden faced intense blowback throughout the weekend and into the start of the next over the debacle in Afghanistan as disturbing images circulated on social media documenting the crisis.

The following are some of the responses that Biden received in response to the CNN report that he would address the nation in the “next few days”:

Ezra Levant: “In the next few days? What is he doing that’s more important? Why have they only released a still photo of him in an empty room? Has he had a health episode of some sort? Does he still have his mental and physical faculties? Has the Vice President taken over? Seriously.”

In the next few days?

What is he doing that’s more important?

Why have they only released a still photo of him in an empty room?

Has he had a health episode of some sort? Does he still have his mental and physical faculties?

Has the Vice President taken over?

Seriously. https://t.co/5IxkR0k5t0

“The next few days!”

The Afghan President has fled, Kabul has fallen, American personnel are trying to evacuate, and the Taliban has taken over.

This is a dire situation that demands American leadership, not more leading from behind.

UNACCEPTABLE! https://t.co/aY76EUdWLv

For those of you keeping score at home, the Taliban held a press conference today. President Biden will get around to it in the “next few days”

I don’t know how much the people who will decide the 2022/2024 elections are going to care about Afghanistan, but waiting a few days while on your vacation to address the nation about a massive international debacle seems crazy to me. https://t.co/GR1QT5FbVj

The only reason Joe Biden won’t jump on Afghanistan sooner is it’s older than 12. https://t.co/s3mwnWCRcV
