Hollywood celebrities who supported and campaigned for Joe Biden’s appear to be ignoring the disaster in Afghanistan, including the suicide bomb explosions near Kabul airport where 60 people were killed, including 13 U.S. service members.
Actor Scott Baio called out some of those celebrities noting their silence on the president’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan that has also resulted in thousands of Americans stranded behind enemy lines.
Breitbart reports: In a tweet Monday, Scott Baio named Alyssa Milano, Rob Reiner, Patton Oswalt, and Richard Marx, all of whom backed Joe Biden during last year’s presidential race.
“This is your guy! Where are you now?” Baio asked. “I’m praying for our military that was killed and those left behind because of your guy.”
Baio shared a screenshot of a Fox News chyron that appeared to reference a recent report claiming Taliban “kill squads” are using biometric data left behind in Afghanistan by the Biden administration to identify and eliminate U.S. allies.
The report appears to have originated from the site Zenger News, which conducted an interview with a purported member of a Taliban special unit called Al Isha. The individual claimed his unit is using U.S.-made hand-held scanners to access a U.S.-built biometric database and identify any person who helped the NATO allies or worked with Indian intelligence.
Baio’s tweet provoked a response from singer Richard Marx, who blamed former administrations for the Afghanistan fiasco. Marx also repeated The Atlantic magazine’s debunked claim that former President Donald Trump called military personnel “suckers” and “losers.”
While neither Alyssa Milano nor Rob Reiner had reacted to Baio as of Monday evening, they both re-affirmed their support for Biden in tweets on Sunday.
Milano said she is “proud” of Biden, adding that the president is doing an “incredible job.”
Meanwhile, Reiner skirted the issue by praising Biden for his “strength and fortitude” to end the U.S. war in Afghanistan.
Patton Oswalt also didn’t reply to Baio, though the comedian retweeted the following message that lauded Biden for pulling out of Afghanistan without addressing the catastrophic way it was executed.
