Biden accused of checking watch during dignified transfer procedure honoring 13 Fallen U.S. service members

President Joe Biden is being accused of checking his watch during the dignified transfer sparked criticism on social media. 13 United States service members were killed this week during Joe Biden's botched withdrawal and evacuation in Kabul, Afghanistan. Biden was called disrespectful for checking his watch during this procedure.

It should be stated that it is difficult to tell if he was looking at his watch or not, so we cannot state one way or the other. Please watch the video and form your own opinion.

UPDATE AGAIN: USA Today corrects their statement, says Biden checked watch DURING CEREMONY.

UPDATE: USA Today reported that Joe Biden checked his watch after the ceremony.

However, the sad process they attended is defined below as:

A solemn dignified transfer of remains is conducted upon arrival at Dover Air Force Base, Del., to honor those who have given their lives in the service of our country. 

A dignified transfer is the process by which, upon the return from the theater of operations to the United States, the remains of fallen military members are transferred from the aircraft to an awaiting vehicle. The remains will then be transferred to the mortuary facility located at Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations, Dover AFB, Del. The dignified transfer is not a ceremony; rather, it is a solemn movement of the transfer case by a carry team composed of military personnel from the fallen member's respective service. A dignified transfer is conducted for every U.S. military member who dies in the theater of operation while in the service of their country. A senior ranking officer of the fallen member's service presides over each dignified transfer. 

The sequence of the dignified transfer starts with the fallen being returned to Dover AFB by the most expedient means possible, which typically includes a stop at Ramstein Air Base, Germany. It is the Department of Defense's policy, and AFMAO's mission, to return America's fallen to their loved ones as quickly as possible. Once the aircraft lands at Dover AFB, service-specific carry teams remove the transfer cases individually from the aircraft and move them to an awaiting transfer vehicle. The vehicle(s) then transport the fallen to the mortuary facility for positive identification by the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System and preparation for their final resting place.

In April 2009, the Secretary of Defense announced a change in policy that, upon consent of the family of the deceased, allowed media access to cover dignified transfers. The only dignified transfers that will be open to media coverage, with family approval, are those personnel who die in the line of duty supporting current operations. The privacy and desires of the immediate family receive the highest consideration at all times.

Biden, Harris and Pelosi must be removed from office! Pelosi now has a hit list of opposition Politicians, just the same as the Nazis did, before their Brown shirts liquidated them. Pelosi thinks her Political Kangaroo Court and Gulag, and the inquisition, possible arrest by their henchman Garland, will silence all opposition. She now controls the Senate and is insulated from prosecution, by the Democrats and now holding the scepter in her hand thinks she will reign with intimidation and silencing Americans. The "Biden" regime has designated, Americans who question, challenge the stolen 2020 election, or who celebrate Religious(Christian) holidays, or who resist the Covid injections are Domestic Violent Extremists(Terrorists). he should be impeached for this alone!

He checked his watch. I did watch it. Again and again. In no instance, did he NOT check his watch. Now, granted, he tried to obscure it. And failed.

George H W Bush did this in a debate once and the press was all over him about it and of course crickets from the mainstream on this one.

Checking his watch because it was time to go screw up something else.
