A grieving mother called into a radio program on Friday and let her real feelings come pouring out, and they were not at all pleasant. McCollum aired her disdain for Democrat Joe Biden and the people who support him on Sirus XM Patriot radio, talking about her son’s death in Afghanistan.
“I want to talk about that piece of crap who is talking about diplomatic crap with Taliban terrorists and he said nothing at all about feeling bad for the parents. To the people who cheated in the election or voted for him legitimately, you just killed my son with a filthy piece of crap with dementia who doesn’t know he is in the White House,” the woman who identified herself as Kathy McCollum said. McCollum identified herself as the mother of 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, who died at Kabul airport in Afghanistan on Thursday.

“Kathy McCollum joined Andrew Wilkow to express her sadness & outrage, after the death of her son, US Marine Rylee McCollum. Her son was one of the 13 US Service Members killed in the suicide bombing around Kabul airport,” Sirus XM reported.
The link was going viral quickly on social media.
From Montrose Press:
A Montrose woman’s son was among 13 U.S. service members killed outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport, Kabul, Afghanistan, according to published reports.
Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, 20, of Jackson, Wyoming, and son of Kathy McCollum, was among those who died in a suicide bombing at the airport on Thursday, Aug. 26.
McCollum was preparing to welcome his first child, Kathy told Andrew Wilkow of The Wilkow Majority on Sirius XM early Friday, after being personally notified of the worst news a mother can receive. She expressed sorrow for her son and anger toward President Joe Biden for needless death and mishandling the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan after a 20-year engagement.
“Lance Corporal Rylee McCollum represented the very best of what it means to be an American,” U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, who represents Montrose and the rest of the 3rd Congressional District, wrote in an official letter posted to her Facebook page.
“He was a husband, a son, a brother, and in a few short weeks, he was to be a father. Today, I spoke with Kathy McCollum, who is Rylee’s mother and a constituent. Please join me in praying for the McCollum family during their time of sadness and loss.
“Kathy, on behalf of a grateful nation, we mourn with you for the loss of your son. Our prayers are with you, your family and friends.”
Boebert concluded the letter with a quote from Psalms, Chapter 34, Verse 18: “The lord is near to the brokenhearted and serves the crushed in spirit.”
Wrote Boebert: “God Bless America. Semper Fi.”
Governor Jared Polis on Friday ordered all flags lowered to half-staff to honor the dead.
