Actions speak louder than words, so if he is not planning a visit, then what did he do for the people of Maui? Surely, he did something for his fellow American citizens at this their darkest hour. He did! He offered them a measly $700 per family, not even enough to cover the rent for a month pretty much anywhere in the developed world. I mean, can you really blame ol’ Joe? The budget has been kind of tight lately with more important things to spend American tax dollars on, like another $200 million dollars to Ukraine. This debacle marks the second domestic disaster botched by the White House in President Biden’s first term, with his previous fumble of East Palestine leaving a whole town in Ohio in what amounted to a toxic zone, as reported by Newsweek. With media skills like these in an election season, a person could conclude is that he is actually working for the election campaign of a Republican — or at least actively working to not win a second term. Indeed, the Trump campaign has already jumped on the fact that Joe Biden failed once again to show any care or remorse for the American people, according to RealClear Politics. Optics are everything in politics. The real question now is this: Who will win the optic war and get to Hawaii first? Will former President Donald Trump go to Maui first (much like he did in East Palestine) and offer them more for their losses that the U.S. government, or will Joe Biden show up and make another cliche case for more laws to curb the “existential threat” of climate change? Only time will tell. One thing we do know for sure is this, the next couple weeks could define the rest of the election. In the midst of several indictments, Trump, the Republican front-runner, should seize every opportunity to make his case that not only is his persecution truly an unjustified witch-hunt, but that it is a witch-hunt against someone who actually cares for the American people in a way that Joe Biden does not. No one should allow this story to disappear. American citizens had to literally jump into the sea to escape the flames as their town burned to ash, and we are only concerned with another politically motivated indictment against the former president. Marilyn Monroe once said, “I don’t mind making jokes, but I don’t want to look like one.” There is nothing funny about the Maui wildfires, and the loss of American lives is no joking matter. But as to how our president looks? Or even our country? Decide for yourself. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
