The murder of Christian children appeared of little genuine concern to President Joe Biden Tuesday when he again saw fit to crack jokes considered “beneath the dignity of the office.”
The clockwork call for gun-grabbing from Democrats and corporate media after six people, including three children, were murdered Monday at the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee noticeably stumbled when the suspect was identified as trans.
Efforts by the likes of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) to expose the radical and violent extremism of alphabet activists left the self-described Catholic president seeming to disregard the faith of the victims when, for the second day in a row, he saw fit to quip.
“I have no idea,” Biden first said when asked by the press outside the White House whether the trans suspect had been targeting the Christian children. When Hawley’s position was presented to that end, the president added with a grin, “Well, I probably don’t then.”

“No, I’m joking. No, I have no idea,” he added as though that made his comment ok.
As previously reported, the Missouri senator responded promptly to news of the suspect’s ideology by calling on the Justice Department to “open a federal hate crime investigation into the massacre in Nashville — targeting a Christian school.”
He had followed his letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas with a speech from the Senate floor while the president’s first opportunity to comment on the horrific crime had involved professing his fondness for ice cream.
“My name is Joe Biden. I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband. And I eat Jeni’s Ice Cream, chocolate chip,” he had said to guests in the East Room of the White House attending the SBA Women’s Business Summit. “I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream. By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs. You think I’m kidding, I’m not.”

Hawley criticized Biden for his behavior on Twitter and Fox News Tuesday when he stated matter-of-factly, “There’s nothing remotely funny about hate crimes.”

In his remarks on “The Ingraham Angle” he added, “That is totally beneath the dignity of the office of the presidency of the United States. This is a guy, this is an office, that has the responsibility of leading this country — children are dead.”
“Biden should be acknowledging the targeting of people of faith. He should be saluting the law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line and saved hundreds of kids,” the senator continued. “But he should be saying we’re going to get to the bottom of this, we’re going to call it for what it is — a hate crime — and we’re going to do a full investigation and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
Hawley wasn’t alone in expressing his distaste for Biden’s jokes surrounding the tragedy.
