While Joe Biden checked his watch, President Trump was showing his respect by contacting families of the fallen service members from last month at the Kabul airport and, according to reports, may go to some of the funerals he’s been invited to attend:
NEWSMAX – Former President Donald Trump has been in contact with some of the family members of the 13 service members killed in Afghanistan and is considering attending funerals of several of the soldiers, reports The Washington Post.
“It was just very cordial, very understanding. He was awesome,” Darin Hoover, whose 31-year-old Marine son died in the blast, told the Post of his conversation with Trump. “He was just talking about the finest of the finest. He said he heard and saw everything that we had said, and he offered his condolences several times, and how sorry he was.”
Some of the families invited Trump to their children’s funerals and he has suggested he may try to go, according to the Post.
This is the kind of thing George W. Bush did when he was out of office and I always thought it was very classy. Trump clearly takes the lives of these soldiers very seriously and I’m glad he’s reaching out to the families to offer them comfort after Biden insulted them at Dover. Makes me wish even more so that he was still in the Oval Office.
Some of the soldiers’ parents have publicly blamed Biden for their children’s death, including Kathy McCollum, whose 20-year-old son, Rylee, was killed in the attack.
“Twenty years and 6 months old, getting ready to go home from freaking Jordan to be home with his wife to watch the birth of his son, and that feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die,” she told SiriusXM talk show host Andrew Wilkow on “The Wilkow Majority” two weeks ago.
“I woke up at 4 o’clock this morning,” McCollum said. “Two Marines at my door telling me that my son was dead.
“I just want all you Democrats who cheated in the election, or who voted for him legitimately, you just killed my son,” she claimed. “With a dementia-ridden piece of crap who doesn’t even know he’s in the White House, who still thinks he’s a senator.
“…dementia-ridden piece of crap”. Yep, that’s all we need to say.
