CEO and President of Media Matters for America, Angelo Carusone, attacked the Americans who are stuck in Afghanistan and who reached out to Republican Senator Tom Cotton for help.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton put up his office’s information on Twitter in an effort to contact some of the many Americans who are currently stuck in Afghanistan. This effort was attacked by Carusone who then went on to attack the Americans, who are currently stuck behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, for trying to get help.
Imagine being trapped in Afghanistan in this moment..and thinking best person to call is Tom Cotton of all people.
Honestly, if someone’s in that situation where Tom Cotton is the only number they can call, they’d be better off just calling NYC’s 311. I mean really. Tom Cotton. https://t.co/IHR3GhIdLK

It is currently being reported in the Washington Post that thousands of U.S. citizens are trapped “in and around Kabul with no ability to get to the airport.”
A senior GOP aid told the Washington Post that they had warned the State Department about this months ago but no action was taken.
