Joe Biden met with the families of the fallen U.S. military members over the weekend, and the meeting was reportedly an unsurprising disaster.

Biden’s meeting with the pregnant widow of 20-year-old Marine Rylee McCollum went particularly bad.

Jiennah McCollum was the only member of the McCollum family who would even see Biden – as they view him as responsible for Rylee’s death – and she said the meeting was disappointing.

From WaPo:

One of McCollum’s sisters, Roice, said she and her sister and her father joined McCollum’s wife, Jiennah McCollum, on the trip. But when it came time to meet with the president, they left the room, because she said they did not want to speak with the man they held responsible for McCollum’s death.
Only Jiennah, who is expecting the couple’s child month, stayed. But she left disappointed, Roice said. The President brought up his son, Beau, according to her account, describing his son’s military service and subsequent death from cancer. It struck the family as scripted and shallow, a conversation that lasted only a couple minutes in “total disregard to the loss of our Marine,” Roice said.
“You can’t f*ck up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry,” Roice said of the president. “This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.”

The grief-stricken mother of McCollum blamed Biden for her son’s death in a fiery call-in to a radio show over the weekend.

“My son was one of the marines that died yesterday,” Kathy McCollum told radio host Andrew Wilkow.

“20 years and six months old. Getting ready to come home from freaking’ Jordan to be with his wife to watch the birth of his son. And that sackless, dementia-ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die. I woke up at 4’o’clock this morning to marines at my door telling me my son was dead.”
