Joe Biden, the so-called “empathy president,” is failing to deliver any semblance of a heart to the families of the slain servicemen who died tragically after his administration failed to stave off an ISIS attack late last week.
Biden appeared at the dignified transfer of remains of the 13 soldiers slain in Afghanistan on Sunday was sharply criticized, according to accounts of the ceremony by family members.
The “commander in chief” appeared to be fidgety, lethargic, and was seen checking his watch on multiple occasions.

According to the father of 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz, one of the victims in the ISIS-K attack, a woman could be heard screaming across the tarmac at Biden.
She said, “I hope you burn in hell! That was my brother!”
Schmitz said he attended the ceremony with his ex-wife, and he glared as he said the president spent more time looking at his ex-wife while he spoke about his son Beau Biden, who died from cancer after leaving the military.
“I said, ‘Don’t you ever forget that name. Don’t you ever forget that face. Don’t you ever forget the names of the other 12,’ ” Schmitz said to a reporter. “‘And take some time to learn their stories.’”
Biden scoffed at the comment from Schmitz. He said, “I do know their stories.”
Schmitz is one of many family members who spoke out about their visit with Biden at the Dover Air Force base.
Schmitz indicated he grew weary of Biden talking about his son Beau Biden’s death, in an attempt to sympathize with the family:

Slain Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum’s sister Roice noted that Biden’s words did not comfort the family — especially her brother’s wife ,who was pregnant with his child.
“My dad and I did not want to speak to him. You cannot kneel on our flag and pretend you care about our troops,” she said. “You can’t f— up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry. This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.”
As “commander in chief” Biden is failing on all fronts while attempting to spin the narrative in the press. His Generals have referred to the evacuation mission as the largest “non-combatant evacuation in U.S. military history.”
Non-combatant? What about the death of 13 heroic servicemen is non-combatant?
