Ron Perlman has a request for Joe Biden.
On Tuesday, the 71-year-old actor took to Twitter to share a video message in which he spoke directly to the president, whom he called his “friend.”
“I’ve turned and turned all night thinking about it a lot, and there’s a way to save the day here,” Perlman said. “And that is to tell the Taliban that you are going to escort all the Afghans at once to leave the Taliban at the airport and put them on planes to a safe place.”
Afghan citizens have been in turmoil as they tried to escape after the Taliban took control of the government over the weekend.

Many have died since the takeover, while members of the Taliban beat citizens trying to reach the airport, a former State Department contractor told Fox News.
“All of them,” Perlman continued in his video. “The women, the girls, our performers, the people who helped us during the 20 years we were there – every Afghan who knows their life is in danger by this rapid and hasty set of circumstances.”

It continued: “I take away the fact that the government never stood up to be able to hold back the Taliban’s quick takeover and everything that has ensued since.”
The “Sons of Anarchy” star suggested that Biden tell the Taliban, “We’re going in, we’re going to bring everyone from all over Afghanistan to the airport – anyone who wants to leave gets a free ride from our part. “
“And then we leave that place to these people,” the actor added. “Anyway, my two cents. Thanks for listening, Joe.”

Since the takeover and after the chaos, Biden has said he stands by his decision to continue withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, as several presidents, including Donald Trump, have been striving to do for some time now. The decision received some backlash given the state of the nation.
