Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was dancing with Stephen Colbert while thousands of Americans are trapped in Afghanistan with Afghan allies.
Schumer is seen dancing with a mask on with Stephen Colbert in a video. The clip was posted on Saturday by NY Mayor de Blasio’s Press Secretary Bill Neidhardt to Twitter:
A reporter with Real Clear Politics said a congressional aide texted him saying, “would it kill anybody in Washington to at least pretend to give a fuck?”
Schumer is having a great time dancing with late-nite talk show host, not in Washington, DC, where he could be seeking ways to help the Americans and Afghan allies who are stranded in Afghanistan. Due to President’s hasty withdrawal, the Taliban terrorists have conquered the country.
Reports show since the fall of Kabul; the Taliban terrorists are surrounding the Hamid Karzai International Airport, attempting to take U.S. passports and identification orders to prevent Americans and Afghans from fleeing the country.
The United States has sent thousands of troops back to Afghanistan to help evacuate U.S. citizens, Afghan allies, and the vulnerable Afghans.
Politico reported that the State Department under Biden has also been charging the stranded people to be evacuated from the airport in some cases up to $2,000:
Even though U.S. officials tell NatSec Daily and others that evacuation flights from Kabul will be free, people trying to catch a plane in the Afghan capital say differently. One person said State Department staff were seeking large payments — up to $2,000 — from American passengers and even more from non-U.S. citizens.
The spokesperson for the State Department did not deny the claims, as the report notes.
