Kayleigh McEnany Says It’s ‘Scary’ That Biden Can’t Answer Basic Questions About Afghanistan

Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany spoke out on Monday to slam President Joe Biden and his administration for the actions that they have taken since the Taliban rejected the U.S. troop withdrawal extension.

McEnany Sounds Off

“I’ve got to hand it to the Pentagon press corps. The questions they’ve been asking are in-depth, they’re smart, tough, the type of things the American people want and deserve to know,” McEnany said. “But we’re not getting answers. The only thing we’ve learned out of this is that the Biden administration is really bad at numbers.”

“They can not give us a count of the number of people who died at the airport in Kabul,” she added. “And they can’t give us the number of Americans stranded in Afghanistan, and they can’t give us the number of al Qaeda. It is far more than zero, they don’t have a number.”

McEnany also criticized Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

“One of the most obvious questions is how many Americans are on the ground,” she said while appearing on Fox News.

“He didn’t take up the time to pick up the phone and call Secretary of State Antony Blinken and get that number for us when you are the one place we are getting information from today, when there are nearly 15,000 American hostages on the ground?” she asked.

McEnany Torches Psaki

This comes days after McEnany called out current White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for failing to hold daily press briefings like she’d promised amidst the Afghanistan disaster.

“Jen Psaki promised us a daily White House press briefing,” McEnany said. “There isn’t one today. There wasn’t one Monday. When the going gets tough, the daily press briefing that she promised goes out the window.”

Biden was widely panned for an interview he gave to George Stephanopoulis a few days ago in which he knocked on wood and said “no one’s being killed right now.”

“But, look – but no one’s being killed right now, God forgive me if I’m wrong about that, but no one’s being killed right now,” Biden said.
