Gold Star Mom slams Biden’s behavior during dignified transfer of 13 slain U.S. service members: ‘Rolled’ his ‘f***ing eyes’
Shana Chappell, the mother of slain Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui slammed President Joe Biden in a Facebook post over the way he acted when the two met during the dignified transfer of the 13 slain U.S. service members.
“By the way, as my son and the rest of our fallen Heroes were being taken off the plane yesterday, I watched you disrespect us all 5 different times by checking your watch!” Chappell wrote. “What the f–k was so important that you had to keep looking at your watch? You are nobody special, Biden! America Hates you!” she added.
Chappell started her message to the President by saying, “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. After I lay my son to rest, you will be seeing me again! Remember, I am the one who stood 5 inches from your face and was letting you know I would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh, and then you tried to interrupt me,” she continued.
Chappell explains Biden attempted to tell her his “own sob story,” and she says she told the President, “this isn’t about you, so don’t make it about you.”
“You then said you just wanted me to know that you know how I feel, and I let you know that you don’t know how I feel and you do not have the right to tell me you know how I feel!” she continued. According to Chappell, Biden continued to disrespect her.

“[You] then rolled your f—ing eyes in your head like you were annoyed with me, and I let you know that the only reason I was talking to you was out of respect for my son, and that was the only reason why,” she wrote.
“I then proceeded to tell you again how you took my son away from me and how I will never get to hug him, kiss him, laugh with him again, etc.…[You] turned to walk away, and I let you know my son’s blood was on your hands and you threw your hand up behind you as you walked away from me like you were saying, ‘ok whatever.'”
Chappell went on to blast Biden as “not the President of the United States of America,” adding that, “Cheating isn’t winning!”

“You are no leader of any kind! You are a weak human being and a traitor!!!! You turned your back on my son, on all of our Heros [sic]!!! [You] are leaving the White House one way or another because you do not belong there!” she added.
“MY SONS BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS!!! All 13 of them, their blood is on your hands!!!! If my [President] Trump was in his rightful seat, then my son and the other Heros [sic] would still be alive!!!! You will be seeing me again very soon!!!” she concluded her post.
Gold Star fathers Mark Schmitz and Darin Hoover also slammed Biden for looking at his watch during the dignified transfer.
“In reference to the checking of his watch, that didn’t happen just once,” said Hoover, who lost his son, Marine Staff Sgt. Taylor Hoover, in the attack at the Kabul airport. “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 would look down at his watch on every last one – all 13 – he looked down at his watch.”
“As a father, you know, seeing that and the disrespect, and hearing from his former leaders, one of his master sergeants said exactly what you just said, that this was avoidable, that they left them over there,” he continued. “They let them down. We can’t have that. It can’t happen ever again.”
