Mark Schmitz and Darin Hoover, the fathers of two of the marines who lost their lives in the Kabul terrorist attack last week, broke down when talking to Fox News presenter Sean Hannity about their sons. The exchange came after the families’ private meeting with Joe Biden where the President gave their condolences to the families of the deceased marines but “it did not go well” for one of the fathers.
Speaking on Fox News, Sean Hannity asked the fathers: “I cannot imagine the pain the both of you are living through.
“I’m very sorry about that. Mark, you met with Biden over the weekend-how did that go?”
Mark Schmitz, father of 20-year-old son Marine Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz, said: “Well, initially I wasn’t going to meet with him.
He paused and went on: “He talked a bit more about his own son than we did about my son and that didn’t sit well with me.”
President Biden’s eldest son Beau Biden served in Iraq as a Major in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps (JAG) and received a bronze medal for his service.
Mr Biden died aged 46 due to a brain tumor in 2015.
The Fox News host then diverted his attention to Mr Hoover, praising his son Taylor’s service in the Marines: “Mr Hoover, you said about your son-he had the biggest heart in the world, and no parent-as a parent myself I think every parent watching right now understands this.
“No parent should have to bury their sons or daughter, it’s not supposed to work that way.”
Mr Hoover said: “You know it is.
