President Joe Biden was caught looking impatiently at his watch during a solemn ceremony to honor the 13 troops brutally killed in a suicide attack at the Kabul airport.
As The New York Post reports:
President Joe Biden has come under fire for apparently glancing at his watch during a solemn ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware for the 13 US troops killed in the terror attack near the Kabul airport.
Biden and first lady Jill Biden were at the airport for a “dignified transfer” movement, a somber military ritual of receiving the bodies of fallen service members who died in foreign combat.
During the event, he placed his right hand to his chest as the flag-draped coffins were carried off the Air Force C-17 Globemaster plane.
But at one point, the commander-in-chief appeared to cast a furtive glance at his watch before putting his arms behind his back, prompting criticisms from veterans, Republican politicians and conservative commentators.
