So, we’re at war?
House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D) complained about Americans attacking Joe Biden during wartime.
The United States of America is at war?
“It is unfortunate that in a time of war, we spend all the time blaming our own president,” said Hoyer.

“In a time of war.” – did we vote on a declaration of war? Asking for a friend. https://t.co/ACgMx3fKnp

Nothing like a 40 year DC lifer, who happens to be the @TheDemocrats majority leader in the House of Representatives, announcing the US “is at war”!
Completely reckless and insane declaration that will get zero media scrutiny.

In case you missed it, an old coot congressman decided unilaterally to declare war on a nuclear former superpower. https://t.co/jfLvdztuDn

The United States hasn’t declared its entry into this war. And a time of war is precisely when we should be most skeptical and critical of a president. https://t.co/pBEv3YTPTZ

Fox News reported:
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., on Friday slammed Republicans for criticizing President Biden when “we’re at war.”
Hoyer, the second-highest-ranking House Democrat made the inflammatory statement while debating on the House floor, pushing back on Republicans’ pointing out Biden has “clamped down” on producing energy domestically.
“The Biden administration approved more drilling permits in 2021 than the Trump administration approved in the first three years they were in office,” Hoyer said. “I don’t know how the [Republican leader] rationalizes his comments about the Biden constricting petroleum production.”
“It is unfortunate that in a time of war, that we spend all the time blaming our own president,” Hoyer continued. “It is unfortunate that when the Europeans put themselves over the objections of numerous administrations in a place where they had a dependence on Russia, Russia has no leverage over us.”
“I wish we’d get off this and really focus on the enemy,” the Democrat leader added. “I know there’s a lot of politics here, but we’re at war. We need to produce energy.”
