Joe Biden and his wife made an unannounced visit to Delaware aboard Air Force One to watch the sad repatriation of those brave US soldiers who were murdered in Afghanistan. The parents of some of those killed were very scathing of his decisions and his lack of leadership. One mother cannot hide her anger…
Kathy McCollum, the mother of a Marine killed in the attack called Biden a ‘dementia-ridden piece of crap. My son was one of the Marines that died yesterday,’ Kathy McCollum said in a radio interview on Friday of her 20-year-old late son Rylee. [He was] getting ready to come home from freaking Jordan to be with his wife to watch the birth of his son,’ McCollum said. ‘And that feckless, dementia ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die.’
So why did he turn up? He was not wanted and what is more disgusting is that it was just for a PR opportunity.
Biden’s apparent checking of his watch sparked fury among veterans, Republican politicians and commenters online.
‘Looks like he was being inconvenienced by having to show some respect for these American Heroes [sic],’ wrote Desert Storm Army veteran Samuel Williams. Submarine veteran J Larry Hanna wrote: ‘Biden, as the caskets passed before him, had to glance at his watch. Does he have something more important?’ Another veteran wrote: ‘After a fallen soldier goes by, Biden shows his true incredibly disrespectful soul, he checks his watch as if he has somewhere else to be. I’m so mad, this is personal slap to all veterans and active duty.‘
Republicans also leapt to criticize the President.
Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson, a retired Navy rear admiral, tweeted: ‘Apparently our Commander-in-Chief has better things to do than honor the 13 service members who died on his watch? I’m DISGUSTED! God bless these heroes and their loved ones. They deserved better.’ Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said: ‘Many of us remember President Bush the 41st President checking his watch during a debate and how awful it looked (even though we all felt same way about that debate.) But this is shocking and will be remembered.’ (www.dailymail.co.uk).
The Presidency of Biden will go down in history as the worst ever and if he is not collapsing in a ball when questioned about the deaths in Afghanistan and his appalling leadership, then he is too busy checking his watch as those who had died are taken past him on their final journey home.
To the parents of those murdered in Afghanistan I am truly sorry for your loss and they died trying to get others out of the way of murdering terrorists. They are heroes each and everyone of them.
Sadly, the President of the United States of America is anything but…
