(Aug. 28, 2021) — On Friday the mother of one of 12 U.S. Marines killed in two terrorist attacks on Thursday in Kabul, Afghanistan called in to “The Wilkow Majority to express her grief and anger over her son’s death, for which she blamed Joe Biden and “Democrats.”
Wilkow took the call unaware of who “Kathy from Colorado” was.
“My son was one of the Marines that died yesterday; 20 years and six months old; getting ready to come home from freakin’ Jordan to be with his wife to watch the birth of his son, and that feckless, dementia-ridden piece of cr** just sent my son to die…” Mrs. McCollum began.
Her son was Rylee James McCollum of Wyoming, she said. McCollum was among 11 Marines, one Army soldier and a Navy hospitalman killed in the twin attacks carried out at Hamid Karzai International Airport on Thursday morning EDT.
Becoming increasingly emotional, she related that “two Marines” arrived at her door at 4:00 a.m. “telling me my son was dead.”
Apparently referring to Biden’s remarks delivered shortly after 5:00 p.m. that day, she eviscerated him for failing to say he was “sorry for the families.”
“So my son is gone, and I just want all you Democrats who cheated in the election or who voted for him legitimately — you just killed my son, with a dementia-ridden piece of cr** who doesn’t even know he’s in the White House; he still thinks he’s a senator. So — I’m going to try and calm down; sorry…”
At that point, Wilkow responded hesitatingly, “I take this call with due trust here; I would hope nobody would call up and say if this wasn’t true; I — I can’t imagine what –“
McCollum then identified her son by his full name, telling Wilkow he could “check out” her claim. Her son’s child’s birth is expected September 26, she said.
