As the crisis in Afghanistan leaves tens of thousands of Americans stranded in a country that is entirely controlled by Taliban forces, with the notable exception being a single airport in Kabul, Joe Biden is preparing to go home to Delaware for a “long weekend” and Kamala Harris is racing to the airport for a 6-day “trip” to Southeast Asia, leaving the White House bereft of elected leaders during the crisis.
Neither elected representative of the executive branch of government will be in the White House over the weekend. According to the FAA, Air Force One is set to fly to Delaware tomorrow evening, ostensibly taking Joe Biden to his Delaware home. It will not return to Washington, D.C. until Monday.
Meanwhile, Kamala Harris is heading to Singapore and Vietnam, as was confirmed by her office “despite the ongoing chaos and the comparisons between the fall of Saigon in 1975 and the toppling of Kabul by Taliban forces over the weekend.” Accordingly, the White House will contain no elected members of the executive branch of government. No person who received a single vote will be monitoring the situation in Afghanistan from within the White House.
President Biden, who has spent the last few days traveling between the White House and Camp David, is scheduled to head to Delaware for a long weekend.

Harris recently made headlines after it was reported she refused to give a speech before the American people regarding Afghanistan, telling fellow members of the Biden regime “You will not pin this shit on me” despite playing a large role in the decision to remove troops from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021, marking the 20 year anniversary of the devastating terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
In his first discussion with the press – he has refused to take questions at all of his recent press conferences – Biden would not discuss the video and images of people from Afghanistan desperately clinging to American airplanes and falling to their deaths, claiming it was “four days ago.” In reality, it was two days prior to his interview, and his administration has refused to comment on the startling imagery.
Many, including President Donald Trump, have criticized Biden for bungling the withdrawal, though many support removing American troops from the country. President Trump wrote, “It’s not that we left Afghanistan. It’s the grossly incompetent way we left!”
