President Joe Biden ignited outrage among those suffering from the Hawaiian wildfires when he made a comment about a kitchen fire in his home when speaking to the survivors of the massive wildfire that destroyed the city of Lahaina and killed hundreds with thousands still missing.
Hawaiian Rent-All shared an image of its sign saying, "Sorry you almost lost your ’67 Corvette in a fire, Mr. President. Maui Strong!"
The caption of the image read, "Genuine sympathy is better than contrived empathy. It’s not always about you Mr. President."
Biden's visit to the Lahaina Civic Center was already off to a bad start. The president didn't do himself any favors by seemingly ignoring the Lahaina disaster, and it seemed like he wasn't even going to visit until pressure started to build.
During a conversation with some victims of the fires, the president allegedly said, "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 tone-deaf behavior of the commander in chief isn't exactly surprising considering he likely isn't in his right mind. Furthermore, it is clear that the White House doesn't care about Lahaina and would rather call as little attention to the situation as possible.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
