On Sunday, President Biden spat in the faces of the grieving Gold Star families whose loved ones, service members were killed by a suicide bomb at the Kabul airport last week. As their bodies were being tended to during the dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base, Biden repeatedly looked down at his watch as if he was counting the minutes until the inconvenient photo op was over. Meanwhile, the liberal broadcast networks refused to cover his blatant disrespect and instead chose to tout his presence.
“A solemn heartbreaking day at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, Sunday President Biden attending the dignified transfer of the flag-draped remains of 13 U.S. service members killed in the suicide attack at Kabul airport while helping evacuate more than 100,000 Afghan allies and American citizens,” reported ABC chief global affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz on Good Morning America on Monday.
Over on NBC’s Today, also on Monday, correspondent Erin McLaughlin claimed: “President Biden and the First Lady paid respects to the fallen at Dover Air Force Base over the weekend.”

Fact check: Checking your watch is not paying your respects.

Leading up to the ceremony, there were reports that some of the families didn’t want Biden to attend at all given his role in their deaths. And during Monday’s Hannity, on Fox News Channel, Sean Hannity spoke with the fathers of two of the fallen Marines as they shared how disgusted they were by Biden’s actions during the event.
Darin Hoover, the father of Staff Sargent Darin Hoover Jr., explained that he and his wife “didn’t want to deal with him … we didn’t want him anywhere near us.” And while Biden was caught on camera checking his watch at least one time, Hoover said it happened 13 times:

In reference to the checking of his watch, that didn’t happen just once. That happened on every single one that came out of that airplane. It happened on every single one of them. They would release the salute and he looked down his watch on every last one, all 13, he looked down at his watch.

After Hoover, Mark Schmitz, the father of Lance Corporal Jared Schmitz, told Hannity about how livid he was witnessing Biden’s disrespect for his son:


HANNITY: Mark, you want to comment on the watch incident? Did you notice the same thing?
SCHMITZ: Yes, I did. I actually leaned into my son’s mother’s ear and I said I swear to God, if he checks his watch one more time, and that was only probably four times in, I couldn’t — I couldn’t look at him anymore after that, just considering especially the time and why we were there. It was — I found to be the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen.

He also recounted how Biden made the event all about his own son, Beau.
