Here’s what we currently know about the devastating fires in Maui:
- 99 people have been confirmed dead.
- Over 1,000 people are still missing.
- Thousands have been forced to evacuate from their homes.
- These are the deadliest wildfires in the last century in the U.S.
- The economic cost for Maui is estimated at $7 billion.
And where’s our fearless leader, President Joe Biden?
He’s on vacation. Again.
“He is of course having fun at the beach as Maui is literally on fire,” says Sara Gonzales.
Even worse is that when questioned about the tragedy, he responded with a heartless, “No. No comment.”
“That is your leader of the free world, ladies and gentlemen,” says Sara in disbelief.
There’s some irony here too, as Maui is a very blue state – “the most liberal state in the United States,” says Jaco Booyens.
“They will eat their own; they don’t care,” he says.
You’d think something as simple as expressing condolences for the people of Maui would have been easy enough for even Sleepy Joe, but no. He can’t be bothered to even express sympathy.
And for those who think he might have misspoken (not unusual) or perhaps didn’t understand the question (also not unusual), think again.
When asked if Biden planned to eventually travel to Maui to survey the damage and meet with survivors, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre answered with an equally heartless, “I don’t have anything to announce at this time.”
So what does this reveal about our current administration and much of the Democratic Party – “the love party” that claims to care about and accept everyone?
It means their love and acceptance soapbox is as phony as it gets.
“Your vote, your name doesn’t matter,” says Booyens.
It’s also worth mentioning that Biden made a point to travel to Ukraine to meet with Zelenskyy about the tragedies occurring in his country.
But clearly he “can’t be bothered to deal with his own freaking people,” says Sara.
