Conservatives and veterans attacked President Biden for appearing to look at his watch during a ceremony for the 13 U.S. service members killed in an ISIS-K suicide bombing near the Kabul airport in Afghanistan last week.

Biden met with the families of the troops killed in the attack, and he also attended the "dignified transfer" of the fallen troops, a military ritual of receiving the remains of those killed in foreign combat, while at Dover Air Force Base.

During the event, Biden appeared to look down at his watch, sparking criticism from conservatives.

"It's true. Joe Biden checked his watch during the dignified transfer of the servicemembers killing 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," Nicholas Fondacaro, a news analyst for the Media Research Center, tweeted with a video.

"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," former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a Republican, tweeted with the video.

"Looks like he was being inconvenienced by having to show some respect for these American Heros [sic]," Samuel Williams, an Army veteran who fought in Operation Desert Storm, wrote on Twitter.

"There is nothing more important than paying your respects to America's fallen war heroes, Mr. President," Nile Gardner, a former aide to British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and director of The Heritage Foundation's Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, wrote on Twitter.

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Could Biden at least pretend to give a shit about the people he killed?

You’re witnessing the lefty playbook. It’s petty dribble that doesn’t constitute news but makes headlines anyways.

Imagine having the media doing this to a standing president for their entire term……

I'm so old, I remember when George the Stupid issued an edict proclaiming that media coverage and photographs of the hundreds of bodies being shipped back from Iraqistan was forbidden. Complete blackout. Not even flag wrapped coffins. Lack of object permanence is a real thing.

And, it worked. That was the fucking genius of it.

Who gives a fuck? Neither side actually cares about the troops, so stop caring about the fake outrage they're both making about this and just ignore them.

The dregs of the dregs, gasping for oxygen in their irrelevancy.

Sounds like Biden checked his watch 13 times total. Whenever saluted, to break eye contact.
Fucking gross.

He didn't pick a daisy. He showed utter indifference to dead American soldiers and abandoned hundreds of Americans in Afghanistan.

No, this is the "showing utter indifference to dead American soldiers and abandoning hundreds of Americans in Afghanistan" controversy.

It was a stunningly infamous event. He literally ordered a media blackout on all coverage, no photos, no video, no reporters. After the first few, most all the bodies were delivered quietly and without notification to unannounced locations. You would have to have been under the age of ten at the time to be unaware of it. Figure out how to use google. Bush was also infamous for not attending the return of any of the bodies coming back from the wars he lied us into. He was too much of a craven coward to face the carnage for profit he caused. He would have been the most disgraced and worst president in American history ... if it hadn't been for drumpf.

And the MSM would have also shit on him for that and rightfully so.

Of all the ways to be corrupt that is among the least.

It's not some massive shit, but it's something that can be used to stoke fires and further the idea of Biden not caring about American troops.
Taking it on it's own it shows Biden being disrespectful of dead service men. Checking your watch like that shows you don't care about where you are and you have somewhere better to be. However, that alone isn't enough for it to be a big scandal.
Only reason it's being treated as such is because of the context and prior events. When you throw it on top of him taking blame of the pull out, leaving Americans there, giving weapons to our enemies, and everything else that's gone on, it paints a larger picture of Biden not actually caring about America.

Biden is now deleting afghan weapons report from federal websites, lmao biden and democrats truly think everyone has as short memory and is as stupid as the average democrat voter.

Actually, he was watching interracial porn on his smart watch with the sound turned down

Like you've never done the same in church

Bret Baier from fox:

“Let me first say that listening to those fathers talk to Sean last night was heart-wrenching. You can’t even imagine the pain of losing a child and have to bury a child,” Baier said. “If the president was looking at his watch, as it appeared to those fathers, they obviously took that as being so disrespectful, and The White House should be asked about that.”

“Let me offer something else,” he continued. “On that left wrist, the president wears the rosary of his son Beau, and perhaps — and this is not making excuses — he was looking down at the rosary as he has done numerous times.”

Joe let the Taliban take 10-40K US citizens hostage. Taliban can demand 1 million per citizen for years to come or execute them on live tv/streaming to put pressure on.

>Since the end of the Vietnam War, presidents have worried that their military actions would lose support once the public glimpsed the remains of U.S. soldiers arriving at air bases in flag-draped caskets. To this problem, the Bush administration has found a simple solution: It has ended the public dissemination of such images by banning news coverage and photography of dead soldiers' homecomings on all military bases.

You wouldn't be saying this if it were the orange fat ass looking at his watch while dead troops were being offloaded. Stop defending your senile grandpa.

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.

O'Biden didn't "appear" to look at his watch.. He looked at his watch.. Adding appear in the story is lefty writers trying to soften the reaction of disgust we should have for him.. And "sparking criticism from conservatives" shows what spineless lemmings liberals are because everyone should be criticizing O'Biden..
