The Republican senator trended on Twitter as MSNBC fans flamed his morning show hit
Sasse spoke to host Joe Scarborough at length about the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan, saying he wants to see evacuation efforts for Americans extend past the deadline “until every American is out.”
“There is no excuse for leaving Americans behind. The president seems to be content with a plan that is going to end up in some sort of a hostage situation,” he said. “It’s completely indefensible. We need to finish the job. Obviously, I’m against the withdrawal decision, but that’s not what we’re talking about right now; we’re talking about the fact that this evacuation has been so ham-handedly planned and the administration continues to just go out and try to take these weird victory laps every 36 hours like things are working well. Things are not working well.”
But many commenters took Sasse to task for his comments — and also for even appearing on the show.
