During a press conference at the White House today, Jen Psaki made a huge pivot to dodge the question from a reporter about Biden looking at his watch during the ceremony at Dover AFB.
Americans have been outraged over video showing Biden on the tarmac looking at his watch. Family members of Marines lost in the suicide bomb attack who were present at Dover noticed Biden’s careless move. This is a horrible and insensitive misstep by Biden, who never addressed the offense during his speech on Tuesday.
Watch Psaki blow away the question by not addressing it. Instead, she spoke of how she believes Biden cares about our troops.
REPORT ON BIDEN LOOKING AT HIS WATCH WITH VIDEO: Joe Biden was standing at the reception at Dover Air Force Base for the 13 service members killed in Kabul when he awkwardly appeared to check his watch (video and photo below).
Unbelievable! Social media is exploding with comments about how disgusting Biden’s actions appeared at such a solemn ceremony.

Boris Epshteyn tweeted out a screenshot of Biden with a comment about how wrong it was for Biden to do this at such a solemn and important ceremony:
“Joe Biden checking his watch during the dignified transfer of American Heroes killed by his incompetence. Despicable. Resign now.”

It appears like he catches himself mid-movement and then puts his arm down. Is it nap time for sleepy Joe?
