While visiting Minnesota, where President Joe Biden is scheduled to promote his newly signed infrastructure bill, reporters asked him if he was going to take time to visit those families affected by the school shooting in Michigan. Sadly, according to reports, a 15-year-old brought a handgun to Oxford High School in Oxford Township, Michigan, and opened fire. Three students were killed. But while yet another town is torn by the violence of a school shooting, apparently, President Biden is too busy.
Although 16-year-old Tate Myre, 14-year-old Hana St. Juliana, and 17-year-old Madisyn Baldwin were killed, President Biden told reporters, “I don’t know that I’m able to do that.” He even admitted, “I don’t even have the details of who the families are.”
Having talked to Representative Debbie Dingell about the shooting, Biden revealed, “I think she knew somebody who was there. I’m not — I don’t know anybody who was injured.”
President Biden might not have the time to visit the victims, but he was sure to bring it up during a speech on his highly-important infrastructure bill. He said, “As we learn the full details, my heart goes out to the families enduring the unimaginable grief of losing a loved one.”
On top of not visiting the Michigan shooting victims, the White House also announced that President Biden wouldn’t have time to see the many survivors of the heinous attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin. That act of violence led to six people being killed and over 60 injured. But again, Biden is too busy with vacations and promoting the Democratic agenda.
While Biden might not have enough time to visit victims and families, it should be noted that he made time to visit Atlanta in March when eight people were killed at several spas. He even ordered for the flags to be lowered to half-mast, but no such order has been made for the victims in Michigan or Waukesha.
During his visit to Atlanta, Biden said, “Our silence is complicity. We cannot be complicit. We have to speak out. We have to act.” But he is the one avoiding numerous acts of violence.
