Joe Biden’s time in office has seen the nation bounce from one crisis to the next.
Each one is worse than the last.
And now Joe Biden said three words that terrified every American.
East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway was furious that Joe Biden visited Ukraine and refused to visit his town after a Norfolk Southern train derailed and spilled toxic chemicals.
Appearing on Jesse Watters’ Fox News show Conaway described it as a slap in the face that Biden placed the needs and safety of the Ukrainian people ahead of those of American citizens.
“That was the biggest slap in the face that tells you right now, he doesn’t care about us,” Conaway told Watters. “So … he can send every agency he wants to but I found that out this morning and one of the briefings that he was in the Ukraine giving millions of dollars away to people over there, not to us and I’m furious.”
The Biden administration’s uncaring response to the train derailment in East Palestine – exemplified by Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg taking weeks to comment – became a political flashpoint.
Biden and Buttigieg came to symbolize out of touch woke coastal elites that spend all day worrying about social justice, critical race theory, and the globalist agenda while throwing Middle America to the wolves to fend for itself.
ABC’s David Muir confronted Biden about his neglect of the people of East Palestine and the mayor’s criticism.
“It’s been three weeks now since the toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, as you know. The mayor says he saw you in Ukraine and he says, it tells you he doesn’t care about us. They’re asking, is the President coming to Ohio? Do you have any plan to travel to Ohio, and have you talked with the mayor yet?” Muir asked.
Biden then tried to filibuster and tick off the actions his administration took.
“Let’s put this in perspective, within two hours of that derailment, the EPA was in there, within two hours. Every major agency in the United States government that’s had anything to do with rail and/or cleanup was there and is there. In addition to that, I’ve spoken at length to the congresspersons, the governors, the senators from both [the] states of Pennsylvania and Ohio. And I’ve made it clear to them, anything they need is available or we’ll make it available to them. Whatever happens there, we’ve got to understand, it’s the responsibility of the railroad company who’s made, by the way, tens of billions of dollars in profits, tens of billions of dollars in profits lately,” Biden responded.
But there is no substitute for presidential attention.
The corporate media and Democrats pilloried President George W. Bush for that photograph of his face pressed against the window of Air Force One as it flew over New Orleans after Hurricane Katrine ravaged the city.
Bush didn’t visit New Orleans for days and the debacle effectively ended his presidency.
Muir then asked Biden if he planned to visit East Palestine or speak with Mayor Conaway.
“So do you plan to travel there and have you talked with the mayor?”
That’s when Biden gave everyone’s favorite answer for an 80 year old president the majority of people do not think is mentally or physically capable of being President by responding “I can’t recall.”
“I can’t recall whether I’ve — I don’t think I’ve talked to the mayor. I’ve talked to everyone else there, multiple times. I’ve talked to both the senators, both governors, I’ve talked to everyone there is to talk to, and we’ve made it clear that everything is available,” Biden stated.
In the 2020 campaign the corporate media concocted a nonsensical lie that Joe Biden’s political superpower was empathy.
Americans are suffering and Joe Biden thought it was more important to fly to Ukraine.
And now Biden admits he can’t remember if he ever spoke with the mayor of the suffering town.
