The confirmed count of lives lost has tragically reached 99 in the Maui wildfires, and there are fears that this toll will rise substantially in the upcoming days, as conveyed by Hawaii Gov. Josh Green during an interview on CNN. The blaze, which destroyed the historic town of Lahaina, is now the deadliest wildfire in the United States in over a century. A significant step in acknowledging the extent of the tragedy is expected to take place on Tuesday, as officials intend to start disclosing the names of the deceased. Meanwhile, Biden spent his time sunning himself on the beach in Delaware and leisurely cycling, looking far more like a resident of The Villages than of The White House.

A video was captured of #biden leisurely cycling in his hometown and he even said that “the matter is under investigation”.I just can’t understand that while the fires in #Hawaii and Texas are raging like this, you are still in the mood to go cycling. pic.twitter.com/5HUWVIFmeN — Inter Breaking (@Philipcong31) August 14, 2023
Former President Donald Trump didn’t mince words about this lack of response, saying in a video released Monday that the president’s two-word “no comment” with a laugh and a smile” was “horrible and unacceptable,” and “a disgraceful thing.”

Humanity differentiates itself from animals in that we have the ability to feel empathy, even for those who may not be in our immediate circle. But although Biden seems to be willing to go out of his way, even to the point of criminality, to help his family, he often acts as if he doesn’t possess the trait of empathy toward his fellow humans. There’s that incident where he tried to shake the hand of a marine who had just lost it in combat and then asked him what he wanted. There’s the fact that he has not yet visited the city of East Palestine, Ohio, residents of which are still experiencing symptoms of the toxic chemical spill from the devastating train derailment.

For a man who has no empathy to be the leader of the nation is like appointing a tone-deaf person to be the conductor of the Vienna Philharmonic. It leaves the citizens feeling hopeless and disillusioned. And in the eyes of the world — in Trump’s words — “its a disgraceful thing.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
