People have been criticizing President Joe Biden for clearly looking at his watch on Sunday during a solemn ceremony for the 13 US soldiers killed during a suicide bomber attack in Afghanistan last week. Many believe that attack happened directly because of Joe Biden’s horrible withdrawal plan where after throwing out the Trump administration’s withdrawal plan focused on getting military personnel out first with no plan for getting American civilians and Afghan allies out, our billions of dollars worth of military equipment that the Taliban now owns, or destroying the forts we built there so that the Taliban and other terrorist groups can’t use them.
Ask your Democrat friends and family if they still think their vote for this bum was a wise decision.
Old Biden and first lady Jill Biden – I’m sorry, Dr. Jill Biden, the greatest doctor who ever lived – were at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware for a ceremony that has been termed a “dignified transfer,” a military ritual that honors the remains of our fallen service members who died in combat, according to a The New York Post report on Monday.
As flag-draped coffins were being carried off an Air Force C-17 Globemaster plane, the president placed his right hand over his chest.
At one point, Biden took a glance at his wristwatch before putting his arms behind his back, a move that was criticized by veterans and conservatives.
“Looks like he was being inconvenienced by having to show some respect for these American Heros [sic],” Samuel Williams, a disabled U.S. Army veteran posted to social media.

“It’s true. Joe Biden checked his watch during the dignified transfer of the service members (killed) 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,” columnist Nicholas Fondacaro tweeted.

Daniel Gade, an Iraq War veteran and a former Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Virginia, asked “Are you bored, Mr. President?”

“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.”

“He has another meeting,” actor Nick Searcy tweeted. Remember how childishly the other day while taking questions after a short presser Biden said he had to go to another meeting, no really?

Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX) and former White House doctor, ripped on Biden’s gesture in a tweet:
“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.”

Nile Gardiner, a foreign policy analyst and former aide to ex-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, tweeted: “There is nothing more important than paying your respects to America’s fallen war heroes, Mr. President.”
We’re always told by the mainstream news media that Joe Biden is Captain Empathy, but from everything we know about the man, he’s a cold-hearted mean person with a temper.
The 13 soldiers consisting of 11 Marines, one Navy sailor, and one Army soldier, were killed during an ISIS-K suicide bomber attack outside the airport in Kabul. These military people were assisting with the evacuation of Americans and Afghan allies after the Taliban took control of the country.
After seeing this, it makes me wonder if the first thing the Biden administration did after the attack was to worry about bad it would look for them as opposed to worrying about protecting the men and women who serve under this feckless failure of a president.
