Joe Biden reached out to the Gold Star parents who tragically lost their children in a recent drone attack in Jordan to express his heartfelt condolences.
However, during the conversation, he also took the opportunity to share some details about himself.
In the unfortunate incident, three brave U.S. Servicemembers lost their lives, while 34 others were injured, with eight requiring transportation to another location for further medical treatment.
The attack occurred late Saturday night when the troops were sleeping in a tent structure and were unexpectedly targeted by an unmanned aircraft system (UAS).
It is important to note that all three servicemembers who made the ultimate sacrifice belonged to the 718th Engineer Company, a reservist unit based in Fort Moore, Georgia.
The Pentagon released the names of three deceased servicemembers:
- Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46 of Carrollton, GA
- Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross, GA
- Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, Savannah, GA

On Tuesday morning, Biden reached out to Shawn Sanders and Oneida Oliver-Sanders in their living room after the tragic loss of their daughter, Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, who was killed by Iran-backed terrorists in Jordan.
During the call, Biden expressed his condolences but unfortunately shifted the focus onto himself.
He made false claims about his own son Beau. Biden stated, “I understand your pain as my son also served in Iraq and that’s where I lost him.”
The grieving Gold Star parents were left sobbing as they listened to Biden’s words.
Joe Biden’s son Beau died of brain cancer at Walter Reed in Bethesda, Maryland in 2015.
Biden is not a Gold Star dad.
