‘What a Scumbag’: Beachbum Biden’s ‘No Comment’ on Hawaii Deaths Stir Backlash

'Wow. What a scumbag...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) In the wake of the devastating wildfires that have swept through Hawaii, President Joe Biden’s response has sparked intense backlash, with critics denouncing his apparent lack of empathy for the victims.  

The president’s terse “No comment” in response to a question from a reporter has ignited a firestorm of criticism from various quarters. 

Justin Sink, a White House correspondent for Bloomberg, reported that during an encounter on Rehoboth Beach, Biden was asked about the rising death toll in Hawaii caused by the raging fires.  

Without elaborating or offering condolences, Biden simply responded with a curt “No comment.”

The response drew ire from political figures, media personalities and commentators alike.

Political strategist Steve Guest described the incident as “embarrassing,” while political commentator Stephen Miller questioned Sink’s actions and predicted a potential cover-up by the White House. 

Podcast host Matt Walsh went further, labeling the President a “scumbag.” Radio host Erick Erickson drew a comparison between the media’s treatment of President Bush during Hurricane Katrina and their response to Biden’s handling of the wildfires. 

Stephen Miller, a former Trump advisor, took to social media to express his astonishment. Fox News guest host Katie Pavlich commented on the President’s lack of compassion, echoing the sentiment shared by many critics.

While Biden refused to elaborate any comments on Sunday, the White House issued a statement on August 9, offering his condolences to the families affected by the wildfires in Maui. 

In the press statement, Biden said, “Jill and I send our deepest condolences to the families of those who lost loved ones in the wildfires in Maui, and our prayers are with those who have seen their homes, businesses, and communities destroyed.”
