The mother of one of the Marines killed in Kabul, Afghanistan during the recent evacuation had some harsh words for President Joe Biden, not just for the decisions she feels led to her son’s death but his behavior at the dignified transfer ceremony.
Shana Chappell wrote that Biden started out trying to talk to her about his son Beau, who served in the military, rather than keep the focus on the casualties at hand. She had to tell him “this isn’t about you so don’t make it about you!!!” she wrote on Instagram.
She said that Biden rolled his eyes at her and walked away when she said she was only talking to him out of respect for her son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui of Norco, California, who was one of the 13 military members killed in an ISIS terrorist attack at the airport.
As he walked away, she told him her son’s blood was on his hands.
She also took issue with Biden checking his watch during the ceremony five times. “You are nobody special Biden!!! America Hates you!!!!!” she posted. Chappell’s Instagram account was temporarily suspended, but Instagram reinstated it and said the suspension was an accidental mistake.
