Where was Blinken on May 8, 2021? An April 2021 “l’Express” magazine article called Blinken Biden’s “Frenchie”. Where was Biden’s Frenchie hiding? We did an internet search for Frenchies (French bulldogs) hiding under the sofa or bed, and didn’t find him there.
We searched in Blinken’s Twitter feed and on the Secretary of State web site and found nothing.
We did find that on Friday, May 7th, that Blinken participated “virtually in a UN Security Council meeting on Multilateralism”. The session was “chaired by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and will include interventions from Foreign Ministers from other Security Council member countries.”
He just wished China Happy National Day (Oct.1)! https://www.state.gov/the-peoples-republic-of-china-national-day/
While May 8th was a Saturday and the Jewish Sabbath (Shabbat), Blinken has been active on twitter on recent Saturdays. While he’s of Jewish ancestry, we don’t know if he practices the Jewish religion or not.
Blinken was allegedly partying in the Hamptons during the fall of Kabul. So, was he partying? Where was Biden’s “Frenchie” Blinken?

Cotton Demands Answers About Blinken’s Whereabouts During Afghanistan Withdrawal Drill
Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken questioning his whereabouts during an Afghanistan withdrawal rehearsal upon learning that Blinken was absent from the exercise.
In part, Cotton wrote, “It has come to my attention that, on May 8, 2021, the Biden administration held an exercise for principals to rehearse the plan for withdrawal from Afghanistan.”
“Conspicuously, you reportedly did not attend the exercise. You also did not send your top deputy, Wendy Sherman. Instead, you sent the third-ranking official at the Department of State. Where were you on May 8, 2021?” he continued.
Text of the letter may be found here and below.
Dear Secretary Blinken,
It has come to my attention that, on May 8, 2021, the Biden administration held an exercise for principals to rehearse the plan for withdrawal from Afghanistan. The exercise was reportedly attended by the top military leaders responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal, along with White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, CIA Director William Burns, U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Samantha Power, and Ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield. Conspicuously, you reportedly did not attend the exercise. You also did not send your top deputy, Wendy Sherman. Instead, you sent the third-ranking official at the Department of State.
Where were you on May 8, 2021?
