Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan cost the lives of 13 U.S. soldiers.
Biden then met with the grieving family members.
And a slain Marine’s father had one unbelievable reaction to meeting Joe Biden.
Mark Schmitz’s son Jared was one of the 13 U.S. service members killed in an ISIS terrorist attack at the Kabul Airport.
Schmitz and his wife eventually decided to meet with Biden during the dignified transfer ceremony at Dover Air Force Base as the remains of their son and the other 12 service members returned to America.
The meeting with Biden did not go well.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Schmitz described how he confronted Biden about the loss of his son.
“I said, ‘Don’t you ever forget that name. Don’t you ever forget that face. Don’t you ever forget the names of the other 12,’” Schmitz stated. “‘And take some time to learn their stories.’”
Schmitz said Biden “bristled” at that comment.
But what offended Schmitz the most was Biden going on and on about his late son Beau who passed away from cancer after service in Iraq.
Schmitz felt it was rude for Biden to talk about his own son and ignore their loss.
“When he just kept talking about his son so much it was just — my interest was lost in that. I was more focused on my own son than what happened with him and his son. I’m not trying to insult the president, but it just didn’t seem that appropriate to spend that much time on his own son,” Schmitz added.
Biden also attracted scorn for checking his watch as the remains of the deceased soldiers passed by at the dignified transfer ceremony.
Schmitz told Sean Hannity that Biden checked his watch after each casket passed by, and that Biden acting like he had somewhere else to be infuriated him.
“I actually leaned into my son’s mother’s ear and said ‘I swear to God, if he checks his watch one more time…’ I found it to be the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen,” Schmitz told Hannity.
Joe Biden’s defenders in the media boast about his “empathy” and ability to connect with anyone.
Biden faced the most difficult set of circumstances any President ever encounters when meeting with the family members of fallen soldiers.
But multiple family members who attended the dignified transfer ceremony spoke out about how Joe Biden’s words and actions offended them.
