The mother of Rylee McCollum, a United States Marine who was killed in Thursday’s terrorist attack outside the Kabul airport, said people who voted for President Joe Biden “just killed my son.”
Calling into SiriusXM’s “The Wilkow Majority” on Saturday, Kathy McCollum told host Andrew Wilkow that her son was one of 13 U.S. troops slain in the Kabul terrorist attack last week.
“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,” Ms. McCollum told Wilkow. “With a dementia-ridden piece of crap who doesn’t even know he’s in the White House, who still thinks he’s a senator.”
McCollum said Rylee was due home to witness the birth of his first son before his tragic death.
“Twenty years and 6 months old, getting ready to go home from freaking Jordan to be home with his wife to watch the birth of his son, and that feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap just sent my son to die,” Ms. McCollum said, referring to President Joe Biden.
“I woke up at 4 o’clock this morning to Marines at my door telling me that my son was dead,” she continued. “To listen to that piece of crap talk about diplomatic crap with freaking Taliban terrorists who just freaking blew up my son. And no nothing – to not say anything about, ‘oh my god, I’m so sorry for the families.’”
“So, I’m gonna try to calm down,” she added. “Sorry.”
McCollum told Wilkow that her Congresswoman, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), had already scheduled a visit with the grieving family. According to McCollum, Boebert told her that Rylee “did not die in vain,” but the mother disagreed.
“Guess what: my son did die in vain. This was an unnecessary debacle that could have been handled properly. They had months and months to remove everyone from Afghanistan and they chose not to,” McCollum said. “And so they sent in what, 6,000 troops? And my son, through the laws of statistics, my son was one of the ones who just got blown up in a freaking terrorist bomb.”
Wilkow sounded surprised by the call, and offered to help Ms. McCollum get support.
“I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now,” the host responded. “Everything you’re feeling right now is justified. I don’t think you have to apologize. You have every right to feel how you feel and to speak your mind. I’m honored that you would call this program and you would call me.”
A fundraiser for Rylee’s unborn son has raised over $400,000 as of Monday morning.
