Blinken knocked for avoiding questions after Afghan withdrawal speech: Must be heading 'back to the Hamptons'

 Secretary of State Antony Blinken was criticized on Monday for not taking questions from reporters following his speech commemorating the military withdrawal from Afghanistan

During his address, Blinken touted the ending of troop presence in Afghanistan following 20 years of war. He expressed optimism in pursuing a diplomatic path with the Taliban as the terror group has taken control of the country. The secretary of state did acknowledge, however, that a "small number of Americans- under 200" are still in Afghanistan and want to leave. 

At the conclusion of his speech, several reporters attempted to shout their questions at Blinken, who ignored them as he walked away from the podium. 

My goodness I don’t think I’ve ever transcribed a more robotic speech and delivery in my life. Just watch it if you don’t believe me.

But anyway, to Blinken’s point about helping Americans leave, how exactly will he do that? The Taliban are in control of the whole damn country thanks to him and Biden, and they are a freaking terrorist group. The Defense Department has already said that they won’t be evacuating more Americans going forward, so how do we get them out? Will he send the Taliban large sums of money? Will he send them more military equipment? I mean seriously, this situation is intolerable. He makes it sound like these Americans will be able to come and go as they please in Afghanistan. It’s as if he isn’t taking this seriously at all. But then I guess that attitude flows from the top.
