Sarah Palin Calls Biden a 'Liar' Following Afghanistan Withdrawal: 'Should've Seen It Coming'

Former GOP vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called President Joe Biden a "liar" amid criticism of his administration's handling of the U.S. withdrawal mission in Afghanistan, adding that "we should've seen it coming."

"I mean based on Biden's track record, nearly 50 years in government blunder after blunder, people in his own party...letting Americans know, letting voters know before the vote was taken against [former President] Trump that he gets everything wrong," Palin said during an appearance on Watters' World on Fox News Saturday.

She noted that nothing positive could be anticipated from the president and "nothing but tragedy would happen under this man's watch."

Palin further blasted Biden's credibility as she referenced her vice presidential debate with him in 2008: "He was a liar back then, he is a liar today."

The former governor suggested moving forward that Biden could resign rather than being impeached for his performance nearly nine months into his presidency.

"I think Republicans in Congress are wasting their time with their rhetoric about impeaching him because they will never do it, because most politicians they'll talk about it but they won't do it," she said. "We have more of a chance of seeing him resign, than we do of him being impeached."

Biden has been criticized by a number of lawmakers for mishandling the evacuation process in Afghanistan.

On Friday, Republican Florida Representative Michael Waltz warned that the U.S. withdrawing all troops from Afghanistan will lead to the resurgence of Al-Qaeda, adding that "Biden gave all our bases away."

"[President Joe] Biden's own intelligence community is saying that 'the Taliban equals Al-Qaeda,'" said Waltz during an appearance on Fox News. "Al-Qaeda is going to grow back and they are going to attack the West again. That is absolutely going to happen and we need to have somebody to work with when future American soldiers have to go back again."

Waltz said that the decision to pull out troops in Afghanistan is similar to the move that the Obama administration made when troops left Iraq "too fast and too soon [and that] led to the ISIS caliphate that launched attacks around the world."

"But we had courage to go back," Waltz, a former White House and Pentagon policy advisor, added. "We had bases in the region. In Afghanistan, we have nothing."

Also on Friday, Waltz and Senator Lindsey Graham urged Biden to support launching a "humanitarian safe zone" for Americans in Afghanistan. They also called on the president to brand the Taliban as a foreign terrorist organization.

Newsweek contacted the White House for comment, but didn't immediately receive a response.
