It's true. Joe Biden checked his watch during the dignified transfer of the servicemembers killing in Afghanistan at the airport. You can see him jerk his left hand to pull the watch out from under his sleeve, then look down at it. pic.twitter.com/M3QVzJbTIm

It’s reminiscent of President George H.W. Bush checking his watch during his debate with Gov. Bill Clinton back in 1992:

And then Governor Bill Clinton became President Bill Clinton as Americans determined that the elder Bush was out of touch with their concerns.
