“You can see him jerk his left hand to pull the watch out from under his sleeve, then look down at it.”
It’s one thing to be an insulting and delusional belligerent oaf because your vacay got interrupted by the pesky fall of Kabul, it’s another thing to doze off while meeting with foreign leaders, but it’s quite another thing altogether to disrespect our nation’s first Afghanistan military causalities in over a year.
Yet Joe Biden managed to do just that when he traveled to Dover Air Force base to “honor” our fallen during their dignified transfer to American soil.
President Joe Biden embarked on a solemn journey Sunday to honor and mourn the 13 U.S. troops killed in the suicide attack near the Kabul airport as their remains return to U.S. soil from Afghanistan.
Biden and his wife Jill traveled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to meet privately with the families of those killed and then attend the “dignified transfer” of the fallen troops, a military ritual of receiving the remains of those killed in foreign combat. They left the White House for Dover on a misty, overcast morning.
. . . . Family members of the fallen often travel to Dover to be present as flag-draped transfer cases are taken off the transport plane that returns them to American soil.
Aside from the quiet commands of honor guards who carry the transfer cases, the short prayers of the chaplain typically are the only words spoken during the ritual.
. . . . The 13 troops who died in Kabul were the first U.S. service members killed in Afghanistan since February 2020. That was when the Trump administration reached an agreement with the Taliban that called for the militant group to halt attacks on Americans in exchange for a U.S. commitment to remove all American troops and contractors by May 2021. Biden announced in April that he would have all forces out by September.
Eleven of the 13 Americans killed were Marines. One was a Navy sailor and one an Army soldier.

The Military Times understandably fails to mention that Biden dishonored himself as CIC and was grossly disrespectful to our fallen service members by checking his watch as the coffins were properly transferred by honor guards.

It's true. Joe Biden checked his watch during the dignified transfer of the servicemembers killing in Afghanistan at the airport. You can see him jerk his left hand to pull the watch out from under his sleeve, then look down at it. pic.twitter.com/M3QVzJbTIm

Some are comparing it to the infamous 1992 President George H. W. Bush watch incident during a debate with then-presidential candidate and Arkansas governor Bill Clinton (and Ross Perot).
Many of us remember Pres Bush 41 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. https://t.co/sFfW032JNm

Of course Biden already did the watch-check during a presidential debate.
This is not that. It is exponentially worse on every conceivable level. Biden is responsible for the unnecessary deaths of these Marines, this Army soldier, and this Navy corpsman. Directly responsible.
He is also Commander in Chief, yet he can’t manage to remain dignified during the dignified transfer of their remains? Were there just so many of them that the head clown leading the tragic Afghanistan withdrawal circus consisting of buffoonish “woke” military brass and a civilian national security team with zero talent, skill, or ability felt it was taking too long? Did he have something more important to do? Is there anything more important at this time?
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. pic.twitter.com/Ciuymtby3N

Looks like he was being inconvenienced by having to show some respect for these American Heros. https://t.co/omAs3CIqjj

There is nothing more important than paying your respects to America's fallen war heroes, Mr. President. https://t.co/OxrAfHG7Cq

Woah. I’m sorry but this is just all so so so wrong. (Watch 👇) I don’t care what your schedule is. These young men and women paid the ultimate price. Heartbreaking. https://t.co/AZX0aKUEZn

I am beyond disgusted. This man is a complete disgrace to the Office he holds, to the men and women who died—and will die—due to his malfeasance, to the thousands of Americans he’s abandoned behind enemy lines, and to the United States of America.DONATE
