President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are both remarkably tone-deaf, and it’s not new or surprising. Harris tweeted, “Because of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, America is moving again. That’s what infrastructure is all about: getting people moving” while people were stuck on I-95 near Washington, D.C., some for almost 30 hours. While Americans were suffering, Harris was praising the infrastructure bill that was doing nothing to help people who were currently stranded.
Biden did something similar while he was making remarks on the wildfires in Colorado. He began his remarks by saying, “Jill and I and my team have surveyed the damage of the Marshall Colorado fire, and it’s, uh, as devastating as it looks on television.”
Is it possible that Biden only saw it on television and didn’t survey any damage?
After pointing out the courage of the men and women serving their communities during the fires, Biden said, “God made man, and then he made a few firefighters.” Given the biblical reference, does that mean that firefighters are women? That’s a good joke for all the police officers out there.
Biden assured people that there would be assistance for people’s homes and property insurance didn’t cover it. That’s a good thing. Where’s the assistance for people who are pleading for help after the 2020 riots that burned destroyed businesses and property?
He couldn’t help himself but push clean energy that’s been proven ineffective. He touted windmills of all things.
Biden said, “We’re going to have windmills, you’re going to see that they have 100-yard wingspans, each, each propeller on that on that windmill, 100 yards long. So there’s so much that’s going to be able to be done.”
Joe Biden, we would love to be excited about it, but you don’t even seem keen, and unless you can provide data that suggests it’s a good idea, stop wasting our time and money on ridiculous suggestions. The off-putting topic is useless as fires burn neighborhoods, homes, businesses, and property. People don’t care about windmills when they worry about fire and rebuilding their homes. It turns out they don’t care. They want stability, not clean energy that won’t work and will take years to implement.
It also turns out that Biden has these events called press conferences, and he has the chance to address the nation and take questions. Those are moments where these types of conversations would be helpful. That is if Biden wants to answer them at all. He may have taken the opportunity because he knew there wouldn’t be any questions. Who knows, the point is, save the victory speech for the times where it’s appropriate.
