Planes land with United States military member’s bodies inside. As soldiers offload caskets onto the tarmac and prepare for hard weeks ahead, military officials, family members, and loved ones wait for the Dignified Transfer. Most have their right hand to their forehead in a salute, while others have their hand over their heart. One by one, the caskets are carried off of the plane. As you glance over, you see the President of the United States checking his watch?
Why does President Joe Biden think he can do whatever he wants? Even if you have no respect for the soldiers and families, you should act as if you do.
Many families chose not to meet with Biden after the Dignified Transfer because they saw how disingenuous Biden was and knew his actions and decisions caused the death of their family member. It’s unimaginable what the families felt as they spoke to Biden about the incidents, and many declined the meeting altogether.
The father of Rylee McCollum didn’t meet with Biden and told Fox News that he went to a different room. The father said that he declined the meeting because of Biden’s decisions and handling the exit. Nobody can blame him. He said that everything Biden has done is backward and doesn’t understand how Biden could conclude. “A high school kid could make better decisions than this” is a statement he made that will ring true for as long as Biden is in power.
Rylee McCollum’s sister said she could only handle about 15 seconds of Biden’s statement and apology and said it was fake and walked away from him. If Biden were sincere, he would look them in the eye and stand behind the decisions that he’s made and give a proper apology. Biden would understand that every move he made was strategically advantageous to the mission and would know in his heart that he made the right decisions with the wrong outcome. This situation is different. The dire situation with the faulty work leaves many deserving answers that haven’t been given. McCollum’s sister said that Biden couldn’t even look them in the eyes and merely tapped McCollum’s wife on the knee and said he understands because he lost his son. McCollum’s father said Biden made it more about his son than about the service members who lost their lives. That reads valid through his press conferences as well.
It isn’t the only mention of parents of fallen soldiers who had it out with Biden. Shana Chappelle posted on Facebook about her encounter with Biden. She said that she stood 5 inches from his face and told him that he knew nothing about what she felt when Biden tried to give her the “my son died too.” Chappelle said that after Biden interrupted her and she responded, he rolled his eyes and walked away. Chappelle told Biden that soldiers’ blood is on his hands, and he threw his hands up. Biden is in uncharted territory if he’s acting this way with the families of our soldiers.
