Former President Trump paid tribute to the servicemembers killed in last month’s Afghanistan terrorist attack tonight at his “Save America” Rally being held in Perry, Georgia by leaving 13 empty seats in the front row.
Speaking of President Joe Biden, Trump can be seen in a clip stating, “In Afghanistan, he humiliated our nation with the most appalling display of incompetence by an American president… in history.”
“13 great young warriors were murdered and many injured and a total of 170 people were killed with many very, very badly wounded,” Trump continued.
Trump then explained, “In their memory tonight, we have 13 empty seats of honor right here in the front row. Our hearts go out to the families of every service member that we have lost and I’ve spoken to a lot of them and these are great, great people.”

Twitter user “Jewish Deplorable” shared a picture of the seats taken earlier at the rally and said in a tweet, “13 empty seats at the #TrumpRally to honor the brave Americans who died in Kabul.”
U.S. House Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) highlighted the move in a tweet where she said, “President Trump left thirteen empty seats at his rally tonight in memory of the Marines killed in Afghanistan.”
Boebert emphasized, “He’s now just brought a Marine who served in Kabul out onto the stage in Georgia. I miss having a President who loves and respects those who serve our nation!”

He's now just brought a Marine who served in Kabul out onto the stage in Georgia. I miss having a President who loves and respects those who serve our nation!
Liberals on Twitter however, have attempted to make light of the gesture in response to Boebert, suggesting that there were more empty seats than that at the rally due to potential low attendance.
