Kathy McCollum, the grieving mother of United States Marine Rylee McCollum, who was killed in last week’s suicide bombing in Afghanistan, blamed Democrat voters for his death and slammed President Biden as a “dementia-ridden piece of crap.”
McCollum was one of 13 U.S. service members who was killed in the terror attack.
Kathy McCollum expressed her outrage in a fiery radio interview this past weekend.
“Every Democrat who is listening, you did this to my son,” the marine’s mother said.
She continued lamenting that her son “did die in vain” and slammed the Biden administration for being behind the “unnecessary debacle” that has taken place with the President’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Clearly in anguish over the death of her son, Kathy McCollum was unable to hold back her criticism of President Biden over what happened outside the gates of Kabul airport.
“I never thought in a million years that he would die for nothing. For nothing,” she anguished. “Because a feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap wanted a photo-op on Sept. 11, that’s what kills me.”
This past April, the Washington Post reported that U.S. officials had specifically sought to withdraw troops from Afghanistan before September 11th, the 20-year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks that sparked the war in the Middle East.
One senior administration official said that Biden “reached the conclusion that the United States will complete its drawdown and will remove its forces from Afghanistan before September 11th.”
McCollum repeated the “dementia-ridden piece of crap” insult and said the mistakes made with the withdrawal in Afghanistan “never would have happened under Trump.”
“It could have been handled properly,” she lamented.
Her son Rylee was married in February and he and his wife were expecting a baby in September.
Kathy McCollum wasn’t the only family member of someone killed in Afghanistan to criticize President Biden in harsh terms.
Steve Nikoui, the father of Kareem Nikoui, who was also killed in the Kabul terror attack, had similar criticisms.
“They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security,” Nikoui told the Daily Beast. “I blame my own military leaders … Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.”
A poll late last week from YouGov shows 56 percent of registered voters believe President Biden deserves a great deal (40%) or a fair amount (16%) of the blame for the attack.
Only 36 percent believe he deserves not much blame (16%) or none at all (20%).
Biden himself has insisted that, in regards to the Afghanistan withdrawal, “The buck stops with me.”
