The environmental impact caused by the derailed train in East Palestine, Ohio, appears to be an unquestionable symbol of which political party is looking out for the best interest of the American people.
In the midst of public outcry over the recent disaster, the left has been undeniably ineffective in managing the situation and some have even minimized the crisis overall.
Conservatives, on the other hand, have stepped up to the plate while Biden and his cabinet have been shirking their own responsibility.
Syndicated TV personality and conservative public figure Benny Johnson visited East Palestine and even went on a spree of charity, spreading $20,000 to various residents in the area most impacted by the fallout of the explosion.
Ohio lawmakers like Senator J.D. Vance, R-Ohio, and Congressman Bill Johnson, R-Ohio, have been seen canvassing the most heavily impacted areas as well, speaking to and offering support to the citizens facing the brunt of the catastrophe.
President Trump also made an appearance on Wednesday, just a day after he delivered 14,000 bottles of water to the city.
Following the announcement of President Trump’s attendance, Biden quickly scheduled his own appearance shortly after.
However, it seems that in the wake of calamity, the left refuses to step up to the plate even if that means disenfranchising Americans in the most vulnerable circumstances.
So while the Democrats have displayed their lack of responsibility once again, those on the right have demonstrated their commitment to being there for the American family when all else fails.
