On Tuesday, Republican Senator James Risch of Idaho asserted that somebody other than President Joe Biden is “calling the shots” at the White House.
As reported by Fox News, “Risch made the comments during Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s hearing before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations about the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan.”
The senator also said the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan was a “dismal failure.”
Risch referred to a situation from the day prior when the White House appeared to cut off the feed of Biden at an event once the president started asking questions.

As reported by Fox News, “During Monday’s visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west. While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.”
