It appears that President Joe Biden has outdone himself — and not in a good way.
Just after the ink dried on this author’s last column about President Biden’s offensive response to the Nashville school shooting, he outdid himself by reaching a new low: Joking about whether or not Christians were targeted by the shooter.
Tuesday afternoon, Biden stopped by to chat with the press reporters outside the White House and was asked whether or not he agreed with Senator Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) assessment that the shooting was specifically aimed at Christians.
“Mr. President, do you believe that Christians were targeted in the Nashville school shooting?” a reporter asked.
“I have no idea,” he answered.
“Josh Hawley believes they were. What do you say to that?” a journalist asked.
“Well, I probably don’t then,” Biden said with a chuckle, perhaps expecting a laugh from his typically subservient media. “No, I’m joking. No, I have no idea,” he followed up.

In response, Hawley tweeted, “What a disgrace,” while adding, “There’s nothing remotely funny about hate crimes.”

Keep in mind this is the same guy that legacy media has been claiming is Mr. Empathy himself. Just last month, the Associated Press ran a story headlined “Biden’s Empathy Shapes Policy, But Some Voters Don’t Feel It.”
Well, perhaps “some voters don’t feel it” because the empathy is, in fact, lacking – particularly in Biden’s repeatedly callous responses to the tragic shooting that took place on Monday.
