Biden Insults Tornado Victims, Blames ‘Climate Change’ for ‘Hurricanes’ in Heartland

'All that I know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impact as a consequence of the warming of the planet...'

In remarks delivered from his home state of Delaware this past Saturday, President Joe Biden blamed “climate change” for the devastating damage wrought by the tornadoes that tore through the American heartland this weekend, killing at least 88 people.

“All that I know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impact as a consequence of the warming of the planet and the climate change,” the president said in response to a reporter’s question.

Two days later, Biden had tightened up his rhetoric after a briefing, telling a reporter that “we can’t say with absolute certainty that it was because of climate change.”

“It is unusual,” Biden added, however. “It is unusual how it happened, how many places it touched down, and the length of the path.”

Biden also committed yet another gaffe Saturday, referring to the natural disaster as a “hurricane” rather than a tornado.

“Jill and I pray—and I’m—sincerely mean this, pray for those who have lost loved ones and for those who are uncertain of the fate of their loved ones,” the president said. “And the debris that you see scattered all over the hurricane’s path.”

C. Douglas Golden of the Western Journal was not amused.

“If there was a moment for caution, it was this,” Golden wrote. “Even then, Biden couldn’t help but trip over his own words.”

White House reporters certainly haven’t got that message.

Twice on Monday the president was asked whether Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., bears some responsibility for the natural disasters in light of his opposition to “the Build Back Better Bill.”

“Do you think that will be part of the argument you make to people like Senator Manchin about why the Build Back Better Bill is needed urgently” one reporter queried.

“Are you willing to share anything more about what your message to Senator Manchin will be about why you would like him to agree to with the Build Back Better Agenda?” another asked.

Both times President Biden refused to take the bait.
