President Biden reportedly sounded empty and scripted as he sought to comfort the families of service members killed in Kabul.
According to Fox News:
President Biden traveled to Dover, Delaware, on Sunday to attend the dignified transfer of the 13 service members killed in Kabul’s suicide bombings last week and meet with their families.
Jiennah McCollum, the pregnant wife of Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, alongside the fallen Marine’s father and sisters, were scheduled to meet with the president, but only Jiennah ended up speaking with Biden.
Roice McCollum, one of the late corporal’s sisters, told the Washington Post on Sunday that she, her sister and her father all refused to meet with Biden because they held him responsible for their fallen Marine’s death.
Jiennah’s meeting with Biden did not go over well, though, with Roice saying the pregnant widow was frustrated after briefly speaking with the president.
Roice said the family felt the president’s conversation with Jiennah was hollow and lacking meaning, and said Biden appeared to show a “total disregard to the loss of our Marine.”
“You can’t f— up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry,” Roice said in regards to Biden. “This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.”
