The family of one of the U.S. Marines killed in Afghanistan late last week met with Biden over the weekend and they were not impressed.
In fact, some of the family members didn’t even want to talk to Biden and left the room.
The one who stayed, said he talked about his own son and that the visit seemed scripted.

Family of Marine killed in Afghanistan slams Biden meeting as scripted, a ‘total disregard’ to Marine’s death
The family of one of the Marines killed in Afghanistan last week slammed President Biden’s meeting with the Marine’s pregnant widow as scripted and a “total disregard” to the service member’s death.
Biden traveled to Dover, Delaware, on Sunday to attend the dignified transfer of the 13 service members killed in Kabul’s suicide bombings last week and meet with their families.
Jiennah McCollum, the pregnant wife of Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, alongside the fallen Marine’s father and sisters, were scheduled to meet with the president, but only Jiennah ended up speaking with Biden.
Roice McCollum, one of the late corporal’s sisters, told the Washington Post on Sunday that she, her sister and her father all refused to meet with Biden because they held him responsible for their fallen Marine’s death.
Jiennah’s meeting with Biden did not go over well, though, with Roice saying the pregnant widow was frustrated after briefly speaking with the president.
Roice said the family felt the president’s conversation with Jiennah was hollow and lacking meaning, and said Biden appeared to show a “total disregard to the loss of our Marine.”
These deaths were completely avoidable.
Biden deserves every ounce of criticism he is going to receive over this and it will hang over his presidency forever.
