President Joe Biden laughed off an errant attempt Wednesday to blame him for the 2020 fentanyl overdose deaths of two Michigan brothers.

The incident occurred while Biden spoke at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Baltimore, after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) claimed on Tuesday that the Biden administration was responsible for the two young men’s deaths when they actually died before Biden took office.

The two men died in July 2020, when former President Donald Trump was still in office, after they took pills that they mistakenly believed were a different kind of pain killer, according to their mother, Rebecca Kiessling, who testified to the House Homeland Security Committee this week.

“This government has failed you, and it’s failing American families, and it’s failing, most of all, it’s failing our children and our young people,” Greene said during the hearing. “Listen to this mother, who lost two children to fentanyl poisoning, tell the truth about both of her son’s murders because of the Biden administrations refusal to secure our border and stop the Cartel’s from murdering Americans everyday by Chinese fentanyl.”


Biden responded to Greene’s remarks by asking a crowd, which erupted into laughter, “Isn’t she amazing?”

“I was the reason — she was — she was very specific. I shouldn’t digress, probably. She — I’ve read she was very specific recently, saying that a mom — a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl, that — that I killed her sons,” Biden continued. “Well, the interesting thing is that fentanyl they took came during the last administration.”
