Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley called President Joe Biden a “disgrace” for attending the Congressional baseball game while refusing to answer questions on his catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan and the exploding humanitarian crisis at the border.
She tweeted on Wednesday, “The fact that Joe Biden has time to go to the Congressional baseball game but not time to take questions on Afghanistan or see the humanitarian crisis at the border is a disgrace. #DoYourJob #StrikingOut.”
Haley has been a harsh critic of Biden’s inexplicable disastrous actions and is demanding to know exactly what led up to the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 U.S. service members dead in its wake.
She told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that Biden claimed none of his military leaders had said a thing to him about keeping forces on the ground in Afghanistan or at Bagram Air Force Base. “Well, clearly your generals said they did tell you,” Haley said in reference to Pentagon Congressional testimony this week. “So we need an answer. We need the truth on that because you’ve already lied once on that.”

Haley has called out Biden for his repeated failed policies.
She tore into him over the testimony from General Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin over what exactly happened during the Afghanistan withdrawal.
“I think we heard from our generals about what transpired. The person we need to hear from is the President of the United States,” Haley told Fox News.
-Biden said Al-Qaeda isn’t in Afghanistan. False.
-Biden said he couldn’t recall being told to keep forces there. False.
-Biden said he was told the Afghan military could stand on their own. False.
-Biden said he would get all Americans out. False.

Haley also called Biden “tone-deaf” on the border humanitarian crisis. “The truth is that we have a real crisis on our hands and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are absolutely tone-deaf when they talk about it,” she tweeted.

She excoriated Biden last week for ignoring threats such as China, Russia, North Korea, and terrorism in his speech to the United Nations.
“President Biden’s speech ignored the reality and seriousness of America’s threats and enemies,” Haley told Fox News. “China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Afghanistan, and terrorism, to name a few.”
“Under the Trump administration, the world knew where we stood,” Haley remarked. “At the U.N., we took the names of our enemies and had the backs of our allies.”
She added: “With Joe Biden asleep at the switch, our friends don’t trust us, and our enemies are rejoicing.”
Biden unexpectedly dropped by the charity Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park on Wednesday shortly after he was inducted into the game’s hall of fame. The president played on the team during his long tenure in the Senate.

He attended the game as his signature $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill wavers in Congress. Progressive Democrats are demanding that both the infrastructure bill and the monstrous $3.5 trillion social spending bill be passed together or not at all. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had scheduled a vote on the infrastructure bill for Thursday but that vote now looks seriously in doubt, according to the New York Post.
“Let’s play ball!” chanted some GOP fans in the stands as Biden schmoozed, delaying the game.
Democrats displayed banners calling for the passage of the larger spending bill. One read, “Our lives are not a game[.] Pass 3.5T.” Another warned, “Democrats don’t f*** this up.”
Biden visited the third-base dugout and chatted with members of the Democratic team. Pelosi was videoed having an intense cellphone conversation in the first row possibly concerning Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda which is in jeopardy.
Twitter was lit up over Biden’s priorities:
I think it was great he went and got booed!

Joe Biden goes to the congressional baseball game but hasn’t been to the border.

Joe Biden will go to a baseball game…
But why hasn’t he been to the southern border?
— Errol Webber (@ErrolWebber) September 30, 2021
Joe Biden shows up at the congressional baseball game but can't show up at the Southern border!
Which is most important for America?

Biden is so desperate to lobby Dems to pass his spending bill he’s at the Congressional Baseball game.
Biden can’t go to Chicago and address the rising crime but he can go to the Congressional baseball game.

The unfairness of life really gets to me sometimes. 😔
As Biden enjoys the congressional baseball game, the parents of the 13 brave young soldiers who died in Afghanistan continue to grieve and mourn the loss of their children.#NeverForgetThem pic.twitter.com/ZRAaiLiNiu
