‘We Did Not Want Him Anywhere Near Us’: Gold Star Families Vent Fury With Biden

Meeting the president of the United States has been both an honor and a sense of comfort throughout history for military families grappling with losing loved ones to the horrors of war.
That tradition seemingly came screeching to a halt in the past week as nearly half of the Gold Star parents who lost their loved ones in the Kabul suicide blast have publicly excoriated President Joe Biden for his role in their deaths.
Parents have said on television and print that Biden is at fault for the tragedy outside the gates of Kabul airport during the U.S. evacuation. Their anger has been fueled by several Biden gaffes, such as repeatedly checking his watch when caskets were unloaded at Dover Air Force Base and frequently mentioning his late soldier son Beau in an ill-conceived attempt to relate to their grief.
“To have them come out in this regard is unparalleled, and the complete lack of decorum shown in the Biden administration in this solemn event from checking his watch to making a speech about his son and his loss is unacceptable,” said decorated retired Green Beret Jay Collins, who is running for Congress in Florida. “At every opportunity given, he continued to do the wrong thing.” . . .
“We said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We did not want to deal with him. We did not want him anywhere near us,” Darin Hoover, father of Staff Sgt. Darin Hoover Jr., told Sean Hannity on Fox News.
