Are you serious, Joe?
There are 18 people who died in the Florida condo collapse disaster.
An additional 145 people are still missing.
Regardless of the cause of the building collapse, this is a true tragedy.
Our well wishes and prayers go to the victims of this tragedy, as well as to their friends and family.
But do you know what Joe Biden said?
Do you know what he thought was appropriate to say during a meeting on the condo collapse?
These are Biden’s exact words:
You know what’s good about this?
Now is not the time to use those words.
Not when so many have died and over a hundred are still missing.
Can you imagine if President Trump said something so callous and heartless?
The media would be all over it.
Yet Joe gets a pass because the deep state is still trying to maintain the “Grandpa Joe” image.

At least 18 dead, 145 still missing.

Nothing is good about this

Hell of a thing to say while over 100 people are still trapped under rubble. https://t.co/U5ZFy8lVC6

This is the latest statement that proves how out of touch Biden is with Americans.
It also shines new light on his cognitive abilities and his ability to comprehend things.
Townhall has more details on Biden’s inappropriate comments:
During a meeting Thursday near the site of the Florida condo collapse, President Biden took a moment to highlight what he considered to be a silver lining.
“You know what’s good about this?” Biden said during a briefing with Gov. Ron DeSantis and other local leaders. “We’re letting the nation know we can cooperate — and when it’s really important.”
“We’re coming together. This is life and death,” he continued. “I just got back from 12 days in Europe. They wonder whether we can do this. And you’re doing it. I mean, just the simple act of everybody doing whatever needs to be done. You know it really makes a difference.”
At least 18 people are dead and 145 people are still missing, though as the rescue effort stretches on, hope that any more will be found alive is fading. Biden, who spoke with families of the missing for nearly three hours, acknowledged this point during his trip.
First responders are remaining hopeful but also “very realistic,” Biden noted.
“They know that the chances are, as each day goes by, diminish slightly. But, at a minimum, they want to recover the bodies,” he said.
While many argued Biden meant well with his remark during the meeting with local leaders, the comment has been criticized by others as either ill timed or completely inappropriate.
What makes matters even worse is that Joe Biden said this immediately after being briefed on the situation.
The human toll…
Lost lives, dreams, and hopes…
And Biden is talking about “the good thing.”
Come on, man!

Can you imagine hearing from the firefighters and first responders?
Can you imagine hearing from Governor DeSantis?
And then have the audacity to talk about the “good part” about the tragedy?
The New York Post has more details on Biden’s tone deaf comments:
President Biden struck an odd tone near the site of the Florida building collapse Thursday as he talked about finding a “good” side to the disaster that left at least 18 dead and nearly 150 missing.
“You know what’s good about this?” Biden said at a briefing with local leaders. “We’re letting the nation know we can cooperate — and when it’s really important.”
Biden added, “I just got back from 12 days in Europe. You wonder whether we can do this. And you’re doing it. I mean, just the simple act of everybody doing whatever needs to be done.”
Eighteen bodies have been recovered from the rubble and 145 people remain missing and are feared dead after the collapse of the beachfront building in Surfside, north of Miami.
Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, sitting to Biden’s right at a table in Surfside, thanked the president for federal support in the eight-day rescue operation, which was paused Thursday due to safety concerns.
“This is your show. We just want to make sure [you have] whatever you need,” Biden told DeSantis.
DeSantis applauded the federal response, saying, “You guys have not only been supportive at the federal level, but we’ve had no bureaucracy. When we’re dealing with FEMA, we’re literally getting requests routed from local to state to federal in no time and the approval is happening.”
The Republican governor added, “What we just need now is we need a little bit of luck and a little bit of prayers, and we would like to be able to see some miracles happen.”
Biden is expected to meet privately with the family members of victims Thursday afternoon before returning to the White House.
During a brief pep talk to local police and other emergency response workers around noon, Biden said, “I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,” before veering off topic.
“As you all know, it’s not only what you’re dealing with now, but your brothers and sisters across this country are having more pressure put on them because of the drought, because when you have 121 degrees heats up in Vancouver you really got a problem,” Biden said.
“I was on the Zoom call yesterday with all the Western governors and you know what they’re asking for? They need more firefighters… because, you know, last year the fire season didn’t start this early. And enough places burned down, enough territory burned to the ground — more than, bigger than the size of Rhode Island. And already it’s started early.”
Biden also told the emergency personnel about how his first wife and daughter were killed in a 1972 car accident, with the “jaws of life” being used to free his two young sons.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One that Biden’s goal for the trip is to “offer up comfort and show unity” in response to the disaster.
What do you think?
Were Biden’s comments tone deaf?
Or were they appropriate words of hope?

Unfortunately, this reminds us of the Democrats’ favorite quote: “Never let a good tragedy go to waste.”
Fortunately for the country, we are being the watch dogs on the Biden regime!
