Joe Biden has drawn the criticism of Americans everywhere in the wake of his response to the thousands of Hawaiian residents who have been left homeless, injured, or deceased because of the devastating Maui wildfires that have consumed Lahaina and beyond.
On Sunday, Biden was asked by reporters if he had any comment about the rising death toll on Maui as he was entering his motorcade at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. According to CBS, the death toll has risen to 96, making it the deadliest U.S. wildfire in more than 100 years.
Biden’s response to reporters on the shocking death toll was, “No comment.”
Joe Biden’s response to the Maui wildfires has invited increased scrutiny as he has now asked Congress to authorize another $24 billion in military aid for war-torn Ukraine. According to Politico, the total cost for this emergency spending is $40 billion, including the $12 billion he has requested for refilling U.S. federal disaster relief funds.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., roasted Joe Biden for his response to Maui’s rising death toll, writing on X, “Joe Biden: Send more billions to Ukraine! No comment for Maui. If you are in Maui and need help go to: https://disasterassistance.gov[.]”
Per CBS, no emergency sirens went off in Lahaina, where many residents reported that they did not even know the fire was close until they saw it coming toward them with their own eyes.
As reported by RSBN, many people in Lahaina jumped into the ocean to avoid being burned alive by the devastating and quickly-moving inferno as it leveled the historic Hawaiian town to the ground.
On Monday, Joe Biden again avoided questions from reporters about the tragic wildfire that has destroyed the lives of countless local Hawaiians on Maui, when he walked across the White House lawn, conveniently out of earshot from the press.
