MSNBC host Joe Scarborough expressed concern over Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s absence and hospitalization, emphasizing the importance of informing the President of the United States about such situations.

Scarborough highlighted the potential national security implications, especially during ongoing international conflicts.

Additionally, radio host and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino questioned the explanation provided, given Austin’s critical role in the presidential succession plan. (Trending: Trump Defies Court And Delivers Closing Argument At Civil Fraud Trial)

Both expressed skepticism about the handling of the situation.

Scarborough said, “You certainly can’t have a Secretary of Defense that goes missing for three, four days.”

“It’s terrible, I hope the general is doing better, I hope the secretary is doing better. That said, though, he does not have a responsibility to tell the media that he’s in the hospital. He does, in the chain of command, have a responsibility to tell the President of the United States what’s going on,” continued the MSNBC host.

“I mean, it’s shocking that Joe Biden doesn’t — didn’t know, it’s shocking that Jake Sullivan didn’t know, it’s shocking that all of these people — that nobody in the White House knew,” he exclaimed.

“I don’t — I’m just going to say this — I don’t see how a guy disappears for three days and doesn’t tell the President of the United States, the Commander in Chief, the White House that he’s gone, and continues working in that position,” Scarborough continued.

Bongino wrote in response, “This SecDef story stinks to the heavens. There’s a detailed, thorough, intricate presidential succession plan of which he’s a critical part.”

“I was an accessory part of it once too. I’m absolutely not buying this first iteration of the story. No chance,” he added.
