Jesse Watters crushed White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s notion that Americans are not “stranded” in Afghanistan in wake of the tragic events that have unfolded in the Central Asian country.

During Monday’s press briefing, Psaki shot back after Fox host Peter Ducey questioned whether Joe Biden was aware that most of the criticism against the Afghanistan withdrawal was about Americans being “stranded” in Kabul.

“First of all, I think it’s irresponsible to say Americans are stranded. They are not. We are committed to bringing Americans who want to come home, home,” Psaki vented.

In response, Jesse Watters stated as follows during Monday’s airing of The Five:

Stranded means… if you want to leave somewhere and you can’t — that’s the definition of ‘stranded.’

If you think Americans can go to the Kabul airport and take off on the next flight, they can’t! So they are stranded! So I don’t even know why she’s arguing about that word. It reminds me of ‘It’s not a crisis at the border. It’s a challenge.’

That’s what they’re doing. They’re worried about messaging.
