Joe Biden’s Disastrous Maui Visit: Dozes Off, Lies About 2004 Fire, Tells Jokes, Glosses Over Missing Children

0


President Joe Biden finally tore himself away from sunning on Rehoboth beach and a planned weeklong vacation on Lake Tahoe to address the grieving Lahaina community that has been victimized by the most devastating wildfire in modern United States history.

It was an utter disaster.

The most blatant offense was telling a sociopathic lie about a 2004 fire that started in his kitchen after a lightning strike that was put out in approximately twenty minutes.

“I almost lost my ’67 corvette and my cat,” he said, completely tone-deaf to the Hawaiians’ suffering.

But even his obscenely light-hearted tale was based on a fabrication. It was quickly brought under control, according to Associated Press reporting.

“Luckily, we got it pretty early,” the fire chief said at the time. “The fire was under control in 20 minutes.”

Joe Biden thought he could twist a story about a small kitchen fire nearly two decades ago to relate to the loss of nearly a thousand people, currently believed to be at least 480 dead.

But that wasn’t all Joe Biden said to make the Maui wildfires about himself. He had to bring up his trademark story of losing a wife and child in the early 1970s.

Despite media reports of roughly 100 deaths from the fires, locals estimate that at least 480 people were killed, Collin Rugg noted.

“I know there are at least 480 dead here in Maui and I don’t understand why they’re [the authorities] not saying that,” said one local.

There are hundreds of children missing according to local reports. This is all that Biden had to say about it in his remarks.

“Imagine being a parent wondering where your child is — where he is,” Biden said. “I remember, as I said.  You know, press reports of grandfathers crying for lost neighbors while trying to be strong for the ones who survived.  Of a woman distributing clothing to survivors who says she didn’t lose her home, but she lost her hometown.”

That was it. Biden also told inappropriate jokes. “You guys catch the boots out here? That’s a hot ground, man,” he jested.

Passionate locals warned that they will not allow the wildfires to be exploited by those seeking to build near Lahaina.

But despite the anger and heartbreak of Maui residents, Joe Biden was apparently dozing off a day later during an event.

Biden then high-tailed it back to Lake Tahoe for the rest of his vacation.

If this were a Republican administration, Joe Biden would be getting raked over the coals in the media, just like George Bush during Hurricane Katrina and Donald Trump during Hurricane Harvey. But neither of those presidents lied about the hurricane, joked about it, or dozed off while a grieving community shared its loss and heartbreak.
