This just in, Biden capitalizes on tornado tragedy that has ravaged the South and Midwest states.
Biden commented on the intensity of the weather, stating it is due to climate change.
This news comes in just after discovering the death toll is at least 70 in Kentucky.
As we speak, wives, fathers, and mothers are finding out their loved ones aren’t ever coming home again in Kentucky.
Joe Biden thinks it’s an opportunity to push climate change legislation.
I keep telling you, you’re facing monsters. Monsters.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear fears tornadoes have killed 70 people and the death toll may exceed 100. “This has been the most devastating tornado event in our state’s history,” Beshear said. Severe storms caused catastrophic damage across multiple states. https://t.co/RC3eY2v86X

Fox News has more on the story:
President Biden on Saturday addressed the fatal weather that ravaged parts of the South and Midwest and used the tragedy to further his own beliefs on climate change.
While speaking to reporters and virtually assessing the tornado damage from Wilmington, Delaware, Biden was asked whether he “could conclude that these storms and the intensity have to do with climate change.”
Here are some reactions to the news:
We're blaming Trump for these storms, right?

If you're blaming "climate change" for some tornadoes before all the dead bodies are found in Kentucky, you are an unhinged lunatic.

Biden after tornadoes and severe weather batter states in the South and Midwest, causing multiple fatalities: “The fact is that we all know everything is more intense when the climate is warming.”

Biden suggested that climate change may have been a factor in the Kentucky tornado. I guess he is unaware of the worst tornado in history that killed over 100 people in Flint Michigan in 1953. pic.twitter.com/FAU59tCY1l

In addition to people being upset with Biden’s horrible timing in trying to capitalize on the misfortune of this tragedy, people are not too pleased with one of the the richest men in the world right now either, Jeff Bezos, nor the CEO of Amazon, David Clark.
At least 6 people died last night at an amazon warehouse in KY, after the employer received multiple warnings of the tornadoes that were coming through the state.
Several dozen emergency crews at the Amazon Warehouse on Gateway Commerce Center Drive.
About a third of the warehouse is torn down and damaged from either straight by line winds or tornado.

At least 2 @Amazon workers just died when a warehouse collapsed over them
Many more trapped and injured. No answers from Amazon of why workers were still in the facility after tornado warnings
All Amazon's CEO @davehclark offered?

A thread of things people are sharing around the Amazon collapse that killed workers in Edwardsville, Illinois last night. #AmazonTornado
A driver saying they were still urged to drive shifts into tornado areas.https://t.co/FoZiiutbze

How could Amazon possibly push their drivers to drive into tornado areas?
How obsessed with money do you have to be, to put the lives of your workers in danger like that?
This could’ve easily been avoided.
Also, just a fact check really quick on Biden’s weak attempt of trying to push his climate change agenda
The 🌪️ in this part of the country are in no way related to global warming (most disasters in fact are not) as you claimed without evidence.
