(Republican Leader) – President Joe Biden finally decided to cut short one of several vacations he’s taken in August to fly down to the absolutely decimated coastal city of Lahaina, which is located on the Hawaiian Island of Maui. This comes a whopping 13 days after wildfires rolled through leaving 114 people dead and over a thousand missing. Instead of providing peace, comfort, and a promise of help and aid, he made condescending remarks that belittled the pain and suffering of the people in the area.
Ultimately, it would have been better if he had decided not to go down to Maui at all. It was really that abysmal. How sad is it to have such a man as our commander-in-chief, the face of our great nation? We definitely need a change in 2024.
According to Michael Schwarz of The Western Journal, “In an appallingly narcissistic display of faux sympathy, Biden told the suffering people of burned-out Lahaina that he could relate to them because he once experienced a small kitchen fire. This was too much for the hosts on Fox News.”
“You’re not gonna believe what kind of obnoxious story the president just told the people of Hawaii,” Jesse Watters stated in an address to his audience on Monday. The host then played a clip of the horrific speech Biden delivered in Maui.
“I don’t want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense, Jill and I, what it’s like to lose a home. Years ago now, fifteen years ago, I was in Washington doing ‘Meet the Press.’ It was a sunny Sunday, and lightning struck at home, on a little lake that’s outside of our home — not a lake, a big pond — and hit the wire, and came up underneath our home, into the heating ducts, the air conditioning duct,” the delusional president mumbled on and on.
Watters was greatly annoyed by the whole thing and decided to take an opportunity to correct the story.
“OK Biden never lost his home from a lightning strike. He had a small kitchen fire that was contained in less than 20 minutes,” Watters explained during his program. He then called the embellishment of Biden’s tale in the face of the real tragedy the people of Maui experienced as “pretty disgraceful.” Yeah, that’s a very mild way of putting it.
Watters wasn’t the only Fox News host angered by Biden’s speech. Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade of “Fox & Friends” also had a lot to say about the incident.
The morning crew showed an additional clip from the disastrous speech. It somehow got even worse than the one Watters aired on his show.
“To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my ’67 Corvette and my cat,” Biden quipped, making an attempt at humor during an awful tragedy.
“Does anyone tell him that the stories aren’t true and they’re totally inappropriate?” an incredulous Kilmeade said aloud. Earhardt then took an opportunity to remind viewers that the president has a well established history of making up whoppers about personal tragedies.
“Then he goes to Hawaii, says ‘I know how you feel. We had a kitchen fire,’” Earhardt went on to say. Kilmeade interjected, “A kitchen fire. Are you crazy? Are you crazy?”
“Put out in 20 minutes. And I almost lost my car,” Earhardt added.
“The symmetry with a fire that killed 100 people, where 800 people are still missing, is a little tone-deaf,” Doocy explained eloquently.
Doocy is right on the money. I would further add that Biden is pretty much the walking definition of “tone-deaf.” Is he naturally this way? History would suggest so. However, it’s likely these poor character qualities are being amplified by his cognitive decline. But that’s a topic for another day.
