President Biden lies to Maui crowd about a small house fire

 August 23, 2023

First lady Jill Biden must have been absolutely humiliated during her visit to Maui with President Joe Biden 13 days after a freak wildfire devastated a portion of the island, killing many and causing unprecedented damage.

According to Breitbart, the first lady had to stand by her often-confused husband who has a dirty habit of lying to folks facing real problems. President Biden, once again, told one of his phony stories in a pathetic attempt to connect with the small crowd gathered to hear his remarks.

The story he told was that of a very small and mostly insignificant kitchen fire at his Delaware home, which was morphed from a molehill into a mountain according to his recollection of events.

"I don’t want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense, Jill and I, what it’s like to lose a home," the elderly president said, while speaking to a group of people at the Lahaina Civic Center.

"To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my ‘67 Corvette, and my cat. But all kidding aside, I watched the firefighters, the way they responded…And they ran into flames to save my wife and save my family. Not a joke," the president said, lying through his teeth and making a mockery of the fires that devastated the island and killed far too many.

Breitbart noted:

An Associated Press article from August 2, 2004, on the fire called it “small” and “contained to the kitchen.” It was under control in 20 minutes, according to the fire company chief.

Overall, that was icing on the cake as far as how insensitive and disrespectful Biden was during his Maui visit.

From joking with first responders about the "hot ground," to taking nearly two weeks to even carve out a few hours for the desperate residents of the island who only wanted to see some form of leadership, President Biden once again dropped the ball in a way he'll never be able to take back.

As LibsOfTikTok noted, Biden also seemingly fell asleep during a remembrance ceremony, among other egregious actions.

Social media ripped the president for his overall response, with some noting that all he had to do was show up in a reasonable amount of time and offer up some real leadership.

"Biden was on the beach while those people were suffering in Maui. Are you kidding me? As somebody who has handled disasters, you have to be there. You have to be helping people. You have to lead," Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), a 2024 Republican presidential candidate, said during Wednesday's primary debate.
