Mom WRECKS Biden After He Mocked Her – WATCH
Rebecca Kiessling, a Michigan mom, recently released a video on Facebook blasting President Biden for laughing at her sons Caleb and Kyler, both of whom died in July 2020 after taking fentanyl-laced Percocet pills. The video was in response to a comment from Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Tuesday.
Greene suggested that the brothers might still be alive if the Biden administration had secured the border and stopped the flow of drugs into the US. During the hearing, Kiessling testified about the loss of her sons and called for more to be done to stop fentanyl imports. Instead of offering condolences, however, Biden laughed at the comment, blaming President Trump instead.
Kiessling’s video sparked outrage among Republicans and Democrats alike, with many pointing out that the fentanyl crisis has only gotten worse under Biden’s watch. In her video, Kiessling asked, “What about the 22% increase in fentanyl deaths since you became president? That represents tens of thousands of US citizens who died under your watch, an increase of tens of thousands. That represents double the number of parents who are suffering. You’re going to keep laughing? About those who did die under your watch? Do we have to bring them in so you can look them in the eyes and laugh?”
The Biden administration has yet to issue an apology or explanation for the president’s laughter. Meanwhile, Republicans have seized on the opportunity to criticize the president’s handling of the opioid crisis. Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said in a statement, “President Biden’s laughter in response to a grieving mother’s testimony is a disgrace.” He continued, “The Biden administration’s failure to secure our border is contributing to the opioid crisis and the death of thousands of innocent Americans. It’s time for President Biden to stop laughing and start taking action.”
The opioid crisis has become a major issue in the US, and the Biden administration has so far failed to address it in any meaningful way. This incident reinforces how the Biden administration is out of touch with the American people and how it has failed to take the opioid crisis seriously.
