Joe Biden is facing major backlash following his disastrous decisions that led to the death of 13 U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Biden sparked outrage during the military ritual that honored the remains of fallen soldiers. During the solemn ceremony, Biden appears to look at his watch and presumably check the time.
At Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, Biden decided to meet with the families of the 13 U.S. service members who were killed in the attack.
Most members of a Gold Star family walked out on him before they could even exchange a word, Western Journal reports.
The Washington Post buried this fact deep in their article titled, “Biden meets with families of service members killed in Kabul as U.S. races to exit Afghanistan.”
20-year old Marine Rylee McCollum was among the 13 U.S. troops who died at the Kabul airport by a suicide bom ber.
Rylee’s expectant wife, Jiennah McCollum, is pregnant and will deliver her child next month. She agree to meet with Biden as she awaited the dignified transfer of Rylee’s remains.
However, the rest of the family left the room when it was time to meet Biden, the Post notes.
“They did not want to speak with the man they held responsible for McCollum’s death,” the report added.
His mother, Kathy McCollum, is speaking out against Joe Biden and the disastrous decisions that led to his death in Afghanistan.
The attack killed one Navy corpsman, ten Marines, and two Army soldiers.
Most of them were either 20 years old or in their early twenties. One of them was female.
Active duty and retired naval intelligence members were told they cannot “disrespect” Biden over the disaster in Afghanistan.
However, this certainly doesn’t apply to grief-stricken Gold Star mothers.
“My son was one of the Marines that died yesterday,” Kathy McCollum said. “I had to listen to that [expletive]… sorry, I’m on the radio.”
“My son was one of the Marines that died yesterday,” she said, restarting her comments. “Twenty years and six months old. Getting ready to come home from freaking Jordan to be with his wife. To watch the birth of his son.”
“And that feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die,” she said.
“I woke up at 4 o’clock this morning to Marines at my door telling me my son was dead,” she continued.
“So, my son is gone,” she continued. “And I just want all you Democrats who cheated in the election or who voted for him legitimately: You just killed my son.”
McCollum criticized Biden’s “diplomatic crap” with “Taliban terrorists” who “just blew up my son.”
She said the Biden administration has not said told her that they are sorry for failing.
More from Western Journal:
The Post reported that the McCollums found Biden’s words “scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple of minutes in ‘total disregard to the loss of our Marine,’” in Roice’s words.
“You can’t f— up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry,” Roice told the Post.
“This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.”
The same Post article described the emotions of Gold Star mother Paula Knauss, who shared the reactions she felt while watching the remains of her son, Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Knauss, being received at the service on television.
There was understandable pride in her son, of course. And heartbreak at his loss.
But there was also, as the Post delicately paraphrased it, “disappointment over what Knauss deemed a lack of leadership and protection for the service members in Afghanistan.”
“You can’t have a hasty withdrawal after 20 years of war,” Knauss said, according to the Post.
“Because it’s beyond me. It disgraces the name of all those who have fought in the past and who are now on ground, foreign ground. fighting right now. My son’s [82nd] Airborne is still there, and they deserve to be protected.”
