Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 01, 2021

On Aug. 29, President Joe Biden paid his respects to U.S. service members who were killed in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport. The president and first lady Jill Biden bowed and placed their hands over their hearts as 11 caskets were presented at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. But on social media, some doubted Biden's sincerity. One popular post features two photos: one of Biden and one of now-former President Donald Trump. The picture shows Biden appearing to check his watch, Trump salutes as men in fatigues carry a casket draped in the American flag.

So the father of one of the vets appears to have been lying that Biden was checking his watch after every coffin. He checked his watch once after the ceremony. So much hate, so many lies.

Why shouldn't a busy man check his watch? I really don't get it.

Why wear a watch if you're not going to check it? I don't think he's wearing it as jewelry -- to impress a client, or the ladies.

In other reports President Biden also blinked his eyes occasionally. What is wrong with that evil man?

When you think about death you think about time and you think about watches.

Well, Obama wore a tan suit, so there's that.

Interesting factcheck. Yesterday Gal provided links verifying Biden wears a Rosary on his wrist where his watch is. Given the nature of this event, I'm sure he was thinking about his son Beau and likely praying.

Like Doc says, though, "tan suit!"

Trump literally stopped attending these ceremonies for two years after his first visit because he couldn't handle them.

"In the real world, Trump has traveled to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware exactly four times fewer than half as many times as his vice president and avoided going at all for nearly two years after getting berated for his incompetence by the father of a slain Navy SEAL, according to a former White House aide who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Bill Owens, the father of William "Ryan" Owens, refused to shake Trump's hand at that Feb. 1, 2017, encounter, the aide said, and then told Trump that he was responsible for his son's death for approving the disastrous raid in Yemen without bothering to understand the risks.

"He refused to go back for two years, he was so rattled," the aide said, adding that the main reason Trump had approved the raid just five days after taking office was that predecessor Barack Obama had refused to do so."

I know I do check my watch during funeral - mostly out of actual discomfort. Kind of a nervous twitch.

I also get the abject grief parent and relatives of slain servicemen are going through at that moment. The withdrawal from Afghanistan was a genuine ---- show. And now we are starting to hear that the US was trying to get many if not most of these people to leave for months so it didn't help. I am also sure that in this particular case that Biden being a Democrat doesn't help for most of them. But I don't get the lies.

He was checking his watch.

Is it petty to call it out and make a big deal about it?

Yeah, I think so.

Having said that, I remember the media freakout over Trump doing things like getting two scoops of ice cream and pouring fish food into a koi pond, so screw Biden.

Lefties made this bed and y'all can lie in it.

It's sad that petty partisanship over things like fish food and watches divide this country.

No. I don't. I have no idea what that is about. At all. I have never heard anything about those incidents. Is this something that was carried on right-wing sites that said so-n-so was all freaked out over whatever the hell the above was?

Because I can flat out tell you I am well deep into the news and that's the first I've heard of it.

the only thing I know about regarding fish is aquarium cleaner and Trump, and the CDC having to issue a Health Advisory Network notification not to ingest it.

Trump said a LOT of stupid things but he NEVER encouraged anyone to ingest fish tank cleaner. Are you aware that the wife of that couple had mental problems and that her husband was likely not even aware he was ingesting fish tank cleaner?

The Biden administration is beginning to resemble the Woodrow Wilson administration.

His brain is in rough shape.

Wilson's aides, wife and party apparatchiks were able to hide his condition from the public.

In the modern era with cameras rolling it's impossible to keep Biden's condition under wraps even with an absurdly sycophantic press.

Prove what?

That he was repeatedly checking his watch during that ceremony or that he's a feeble old man in cognitive decline?

Plenty of video evidence to support both.

I actually feel sort of bad for him. He should be enjoying a low stress retirement and he's instead been thrust into this situation that is way over his head and he's suffering as a result.

Is America suffering more now that the --------- is gone? Biden, even if totally senile is a step up from the folly of Trump and his reign of debauchery and deregulation.

How's that feel? Knowing your man was that venial and incompetent?

Even a senile puppet is better,LOL.

Biden should have just gone golfing and tweeted some bullshht about winners not getting left behind.

Then the MAGAts would be celebrating.

When it's not hagiographic in its treatment of bums? Apparently. Such a bunch of whining, whimpering, and whinging whiners, whisperers, and whingers.
