President Joe Biden knew he was going to get killed by the press for withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan and fell into a ‘deep, misunderstood sadness’ after meeting with Gold Star families at Dover Air Force base, a new book says.

‘I’m f**ed no matter what I say,’ Biden remarked to a pal, according to Chris Whipple’s forthcoming book, The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House, after he delivered a speech in April of 2021 announcing the U.S. pullout from Afghanistan. 

Biden, according to The Hill newspaper, had called a friend after the speech asking for feedback. 

‘How’d I do?’ the president asked, according to Whipple’s account. The friend said Biden did great. ‘Yeah, but the press is going to kill me,’ the president said.

A number of administration officials went on the record with Whipple for the book, which will be released on January 17.

That included former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who recalled Biden’s August 2021 trip to Dover Air Force Base, where the remains of the 13 U.S. servicemembers killed outside Kabul’s airport in a terror attack were returned to the United States. 

The brother of one of the fallen soldiers yelled at Biden: ‘I hope you burn in hell.’ 

Psaki told the author that ‘over the next couple of days’ Biden ‘just felt a deep, misunderstood sadness.’ 

While visiting with the families at Dover, Biden spoke about the 2015 death of his own son, Beau Biden, who passed away from brain cancer after serving in Iraq. 

The president has linked Beau’s death to the burn pits the military used in both Iraq and Afghanistan. 

He also often speaks about the death of his first wife and baby daughter in a Christmastime car crash to bond with Americans over shared grief.

In this case, however, his talk of Beau didn’t sit well with the families.

‘Some of the criticism was about him praising his son,’ Psaki recalled. ‘And to him, and to a lot of people he’s helped through grief, that had been something that helped. That’s deeply personal.’

A friend of the president told Whipple that the Kabul suicide bombing was ‘just a very different thing.’ 

‘Afterward Biden told a senior White House aide: “This is what being president is,”‘ Whipple wrote.
