Biden to vacation in Lake Tahoe as Trump blasts his response to Maui wildfires

The Hawaiian wildfires contrasted a tale of two presidents as “crooked Joe Biden” appeared vacation-bound once more while former President Donald Trump issued his own statement.

As the confirmed death toll in Maui neared 100 and made the disaster the worst of its kind to impact the nation in a century, President Joe Biden’s administration was busy covering for their boss’s callous “No comment” display, even as they announced another week-long stint away from the White House. But as Biden was gearing up for a visit to Lake Tahoe, Trump was calling him out for another perceived failure in leadership.

“Crooked Joe Biden, the most incompetent president in the history of our country with a laugh and a smile said he had ‘No comment’ on the death and the tragedy,” the Republican leader said in a video message Monday.

He then clarified that it wasn’t what Biden said, but how, as he critiqued, “…to be smiling when you say it — especially against such a tragedy as this is absolutely horrible and unacceptable. It is a disgraceful thing that Joe Biden refuses to help or comment on the tragedy in Maui, just as he refused to help or comment on the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio for a very, very long time.”

As it happened, after weeks of seemingly ignoring the environmental disaster from a train derailment in Ohio, Trump had personally ventured to East Palestine to deliver supplies and meet with the impacted Americans while Biden jetted off to Ukraine.

A repeat of February looked to be happening now as it was reported by News 4, “According to the week ahead guidance released from the White House on Monday morning, the president is slated to arrive in Lake Tahoe on Friday, August 18 where he will stick around until the following Thursday.”

“The White House hasn’t said whether the trip is for business or personal. No major events are scheduled in the Lake Tahoe Basin as of Monday morning,” the outlet indicated.

In his personal message, Trump spoke directly to those affected and said, “I would like to express my sympathy and warmest regards to the people of Hawaii, and specifically all of those who have been so gravely and irreparably hurt by the tragedy of the wildfires in Maui, something the likes of which have seldom been seen anywhere at any time.”

“The sad thing is, it should never have happened. Our government was not prepared, and very importantly the aftermath is going very poorly with the governor of the island wanting to do nothing but blame it on global warming and other things that just happen to pop into his head,” he added.

This further contrasted Biden’s social media account attempting to cover for his “No comment” moment with a rundown of actions FEMA was taking on the ground in Hawaii while he claimed, “We’re laser-focused on getting aid to survivors, including Critical Needs Assistance: a one-time $700 payment per household offering relief during an unimaginably difficult time. We have staff on the ground dedicated to helping survivors navigate the registration process,” nearly a week after his original statement on the tragedy was released.

Trump’s message ended as he expressed, “Hopefully everyone will be able to pull together so that a horrible situation does not get even worse.”

“To the families affected, I give you my love and sympathy,” he added. “Nothing can ever replace your loved ones, but you will always have the memories and will feel their great love surrounding and embracing you. Together we will continue to carry their legacy forward, and I love you all very much.”
