President Biden made his way on Sunday around a quiet room at Dover Air Force Base, a chamber filled with couches and chairs, with dignitaries and grieving families huddling together as the president came to speak to them privately, one family at a time.

SNIP

Some of the grieving relatives felt a need to interact directly with the president after losing their loved one, including Jiennah McCollum, who married Rylee McCollum just six months ago and is due to give birth to the couple’s child next month.

“Gigi wanted to look him in the eye and hear him,” McCollum’s sister Roice said in a text message to The Washington Post, using Jiennah’s nickname.

Roice recounted that Jiennah left disappointed. The president, she said, kept checking his watch and bringing up Beau.

SNIP

As the families left the building following their encounter with Biden, solemnly watching the bodies of their loved ones come off the C-17 plane, the emotions were still raw.

Schmitz said he grew agitated every time he saw Biden check his watch.

While Snopes says they haven't yet found photographic or video evidence to show Biden checking his watch after every salute, they do point out the camera wasn't usually on Biden.

And unlike some of the Biden apologists, Snopes hasn't stooped to suggesting the grieving families who were there are lying.
It’s difficult to fathom that someone is being paid to study various photographs and videos and count how many times Biden checked his watch during a ceremony.

I saw Biden check his watch once at the end of the ceremony. It’s fantastic that Biden was present and paid his respects; what a class act.

Nobody actually cares if Biden looked at his watch. There's actual important things happening. And if this is what people have time to focus on he's probably doing pretty good. At least he didn't wear a tan suit.

Perhaps you don't. However, the families of the soldiers who were being brought home in coffins cared very much that Biden kept looking at his watch. Being dismissive of them seems to me to be taking partisanship too far.

The pain of these soldiers families is one of the "actual important things" that was happening while Biden continually looked at his watch. And that's the point - to the people who had lost their family members, Biden's watch seemed more important to Biden than paying his respects.
JLives wrote:And if this is what people have time to focus on he's probably doing pretty good.
Biden's inability to focus on the important people in front of him, instead of his watch, shows he probably isn't doing "pretty good" as far as the families of the dead soldiers were concerned - making light of their expectations for their president is no better than those who are suggesting those families lied about him looking at his watch immediately after each of the coffins had been loaded.

IMO, "at least he didn't wear a tan suit" is dismissive of those families' pain - more taking partisanship too far.

No one cares President Biden looked at his watch exactly one time after the ceremony was over. There is no evidences or proof he did it multiple times except partisan right wing shills trying to fling mud on something that was a dignified and a solemn ceremony just to put forward their unsubstantiated narrative.

Is it only "partisanship" when people try to discuss in these forums things you disagree with? The innuendo feels like only the views of conservatives are "not" partisan - and everything liberal must be discounted outright as "partisan" around here. It's too convenient.

Far Left crazies in foreign countries still clinging to the "I don't think Biden is 100% senile yet" narrative may not care, but millions of Americans, who this clown is supposed to be leading, do care. A lot. Joe's behavior was highly insulting to all Americans, especially the military. The Dems destroyed the morale of their national police forces in 2020, and now they are actively destroying their military. They won't stop until they have rotted everything.

I see you haven't updated this post to include USA Today's correction to their bogus "fact" check which acknowledged Biden looked at his watched several times during and after the ceremony.
Corrections & Clarifications: This story was updated Sept. 2 to note that Biden checked his watch multiple times at the dignified transfer event, including during the ceremony itself
What's funnier is how Daniel Funke (https://twitter.com/dpfunke) posted a mea culpa and was so scared of being ratio'd into oblivion the coward turned off replies. Hilarious.

FOIA Request Reveals Clueless Biden Regime Lost Track of 1 in 3 Unaccompanied Migrant Children Released Into US; Negligence Raises Child Trafficking Concerns

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/0 ... -concerns/
Thousands of unaccompanied children who illegally crossed the border are now unaccounted for after being carelessly released by the Biden regime to poorly vetted sponsors.

According to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by Axios, the federal government has inexplicably lost contact with around 5,000 out of almost 15,000 children who were released into the interior of the US between January and May.

Efforts to reach them by phone have gone unanswered.

Additionally, the administration has not even attempted to make contact with more than half of the total number of kids that have been released to sponsors through those first five months. HHS had released 32,000 children and teens, but only attempted fewer than 15,000 check-up calls.

Black unemployment rose to 8.8% in August and POTATUS Applesauce is still 5.3M jobs short of pre-pandemic levels.

Afghan evacuation raises concerns about child trafficking

U.S. officials are looking into reports that in the frantic evacuation of desperate Afghans from Kabul, older men were admitted together with young girls they claimed as “brides” or otherwise sexually abused.

I am so happy that this is being discussed and advocated. Even Trudeau made sure there was language in trade deals protecting workers and rights. Unions have been under attack and demonized for far too long. But unions are a bastion against what corporations and businesses have tried to force into society against workers. It is fascinating how cyclical events are. Because worker rights, solidarity and unions were fought for in blood 100 years ago. Over that 100 years, a middle class emerged. 40 years ago there was an attack against what the union provided workers. And the middle class shrank over time. Now there is push back. And it's about time.

Yup, yet another sad chapter in this stupid farce of a presidency. Joe Biden is senile.
