Wounded Marine Says Biden Didn’t Know His Name, Tried to Shake Amputated Hand

Ret. Marine Corps Sergeant Tyler Vargas-Andrews, who was injured in the Biden administration’s failed Afghanistan withdrawal, recounted the “weird” hospital visit with President Biden.

Should the Biden administration be held accountable for the failed Afghanistan withdrawal?

He had his arm and leg blown off from a suicide bomb that was detonated at Kabul airport on Aug. 26, 2021 killing 13 U.S. servicemembers and Vargas-Andrews was recovering in a hospital bed when the president and first lady entered with an “entourage” of people.

“I remember him coming up to me, trying to shake my hand…my right hand and I look at him and I’m like, ‘I don’t have an arm,'” Vargas-Andrews told the “Shawn Ryan Show.”

“And he says, ‘Oh,’ and just kind of stands up and then goes over to reach for my fingers…and grabbed my fingers. Doesn’t greet me or anything, just that’s what happened. Just grabbed my fingers, and I was like, ‘Okay, that’s weird,'” Vargas-Andrews recounted.

“And almost immediately he starts talking about how their son served in the military. He doesn’t say anything about what happened, just starts talking about how their son served in the military and my mom is just like, she’s furious at this point, and they’re takin’ pictures and stuff,” he said.


Then his mom told the president and first lady, “I don’t give a f–ck what you guys f–ing do, you guys better take care of him for the rest of his f–ing life.”

Next, he said Biden got inches from his face and asked him, “What do you want?”

Vargas-Andrews said he was confused.

“I just got blown up. I just saw my friends f–ing die next to me. I’m like, ‘I just want to be myself,” he said.

Then he said Biden responded, “Huh?”

This infuriated his mom even further.

“Then he just continued to talk about everything but what just happened, and then they just ushered him out of the room. He didn’t know what to say,” Vargas-Andrews concluded.

“My mom tried multiple times to get help from them, reached out to the first lady and tried to get some legislation passed for caretakers like herself…they kinda just f–ing brushed her off,” he added.
