Anti-Taliban Protesters Gather Outside White House Yelling 'Biden You Betrayed Us'
Protests erupt in Washington D.C. over Biden's handling of Afghanistan crisis
Protesters have been gathering outside the White House after Democrat Joe Biden's bungling has triggered the collapse of Afghanistan as the Taliban seizes control of the crumbling nation.
Over the weekend, members of the Afghan diaspora and their supporters began protesting in Washington, D.C., as Taliban terrorists stormed the Afghanistan capital city of Kabul and took power.
NPR reports that protesters have gathered in Lafayette Park, right across from the White House.
By Sunday, hundreds of people had gathered in the area from across the country to voice their anger at the Democratic regime.
There were numerous chants of “Save Afghanistan!” and “Free Afghanistan!”
However, people also vocally blamed the Democrat-controlled federal government for the crisis.

The Biden administration came under criticism for their disastrous handling of Afghanistan as the Taliban has made significant progress in retaking the country.
Additionally, Biden faced criticism Sunday for refusing to speak to the media while on vacation at Camp David as the crisis he created in Afghanistan continues to unfold.
"I don’t think he’s taken one question from the press this entire weekend, so this is a frightening situation,” said Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan.
"No person who calls themselves the President of the United States should be on vacation while the world crumbles down around them,” Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted.
"The dereliction of duty continues."

The Taliban took over several provincial capitals in Afghanistan this week and seized vast amounts of American military hardware in the process.
They recently took over Kabul and are reportedly set to declare the country as the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,” according to The Associated Press on Sunday.
