‘Biden checked his watch multiple times at the dignified move event, including during the ceremony itself, ‘ correction says.

After a number of Gold Star parents of servicemembers slain in last month’s Kabul airport bombing claimed that President Biden  checked his watch   several times during a ceremony to honor all of them,   USA These days   ‘ truth checker’ Daniel Funke  wasted no time   refuting their eyewitness balances – essentially accusing them of lying.

i actually watched you disrespect us all 5 different times simply by checking your watch!!!, ” wrote Gold Superstar mother,   Shana Chappell   (whose Facebook and Instagram balances were ‘ incorrectly deleted’ after she posted, and have since been restored).

Another Gold Superstar parent, Darin Hoover, said Biden looked down in his watch   13 times .

“ I actually leaned into my son’s mother’s ear and said ‘ I claim to God, if this individual checks his watch an additional time… ‘ I found this to be the most disrespectful matter I’ve ever seen, ” Hoover told  Fox News .

Yet,   USA This   Funke had written that the claims were “ partly false” because Biden checked his watch “ only after” the wedding ceremony – not during .

Except…
