Trump Campaign Official Mocked Joe Biden For Visiting Graves Of Late Family Members

While the president was out golfing, one of his campaign advisers made fun of the Democratic nominee for paying his respects after church on Sunday.

President Donald Trump’s campaign is coming under criticism after one of its senior staffers on Sunday mocked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for “meandering” through a cemetery. Biden was visiting the graves of his late son, Beau Biden, and his first wife, Neilia Biden, and daughter, Naomi Biden.

Beau Biden died of brain cancer in 2015; Neilia and Naomi Biden were killed in a car accident in 1972.

Francis Brennan, the Trump campaign’s director of strategic response, tweeted:

The former vice president had just come from St. Joseph on the Brandywine church in Wilmington, Delaware, and was walking on a path through the cemetery. Trump was playing golf at roughly the same time.

The incident came days after it was reported that Trump didn’t want to visit the graves of fallen U.S. soldiers in France, calling them “losers” and “suckers.”

Brennan was roundly criticized on Twitter for the callous message:
