The families of the service members who were killed in Afghanistan last week are outraged and they have been letting Joe Biden know it.
They clearly see the deaths of their loved ones as the result of incompetence, and who can blame them?
One family member even reportedly told Biden to his face that she hopes he burns in hell. Oof.

‘I Hope You Burn in Hell!’ Families of Slain Servicemembers Recall Raw Response to Joe Biden at Dover Ceremony
President Joe Biden’s appearance 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.
One woman screamed at Biden across the airport tarmac, “I hope you burn in hell! That was my brother,” according to Mark Schmitz, the father of 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz, who was killed in the suicide bombing attacks outside the Kabul Airport, speaking to the Washington Post.
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.
One mother claimed that Biden rolled his eyes at her when she confronted him.

Gold Star mom of fallen Marine erupts at Biden, alleges he ‘rolled’ his ‘f***ing eyes’ when she confronted him
Shana Chappell — whose son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui, was killed in the terrorist attack at the Kabul airport — excoriated President Joe Biden in a Facebook post after meeting with Biden.
Chappell adds her name to the list of new Gold Star families who have harshly criticized Biden after learning their children died in the ISIS-K attack.
Chappell wrote on Facebook that while meeting with Biden on Sunday, the president allegedly rolled his eyes at her when she rebuffed his attempts to sympathize with her, and claimed Biden walked away from her when she expressed that she believed he was responsible for her son’s death.
“Joe Biden This msg is for you! I know my face is etched into your brain! I was able to look you straight in the eyes yesterday and have words with you,” Chappell began.
This situation has been horrible and Biden has somehow found a way to make it worse.
It’s going to haunt his presidency.
