Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Joe Biden did nothing to help when he visited Maui on Monday, according to Fox News. “I think this visit to Maui, frankly, is just plain frightening. How can you have a commander-in-chief who is totally out of touch with reality? Who makes up a story which is a lie? Who has no understanding of the scale of the disaster which has occurred? Who has literally has no empathy for the human beings around him,” he said. “Now, I think that people need to look at this not as a political problem, but as a national problem. We have a commander-in-chief… makes you wonder who’s making the decisions in the White House,” he said. “And you have to wonder, how is the system running in a real crisis? How could Joe Biden decide anything? It would all be delegated. And frankly, as an American, I’m ashamed,” he said.

Maui resident Allisen Medina told the U.K. Daily Mail she was just plain angry. “One hundred percent not enough is being done so people are doing it themselves. The Government, relief organizations — they’re not doing anything,” she said. “We have the right to know what’s going on. FEMA came here to help with the recovery [process], but we don’t see them,” she said, referring to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Medina said not every possible asset has been used on the island. “We’re only 100 miles from Oahu, which has several military bases. Why is the response so lacking? Why are they doing so little? Why is nothing else being done?” she said. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
