“After speaking for approximately twenty minutes, Biden left without taking any questions from reporters,” Fox News reported. “The White House then announced that Biden would return promptly to Camp David.”

Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton criticized Biden’s inaction on Monday, tweeting, “This can’t be real.”

In an earlier tweet on Sunday, Cotton, who served in Afghanistan, said, “Why is Joe Biden in hiding? He should immediately address the nation and answer for the catastrophic situation in Afghanistan. Conference calls between cabinet secretaries and senators don’t cut it in a crisis.”

Colorado Republican Rep. Ken Buck added, “After taking no questions and taking no responsibility, Joe Biden is heading back to hide on vacation.”

New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik declared that Biden is “unfit to serve as President of the United States of America.”

Stefanik called him out on his return to Camp David in another tweet. “Joe Biden is going back on vacation!” she said.

The congresswoman added, “He is a deserter.”
