Biden’s ‘no comment’ on Maui, according to the White House, has NOTHING to do with wildfires: West Wing tries valiantly to explain away Joe’s remark by claiming he wasn’t aware of the question.

Nearly two weeks after President Joe Biden responded with ‘no comment’ when asked about the devastation caused by the wildfires in Maui, the White House has clarified that his response was due to not hearing the question. The president faced significant criticism for his comment, which came while he was on a beach vacation as the fires wreaked havoc and claimed over 100 lives on the Hawaiian island. The White House is now attempting to address the situation, with White House deputy press secretary Olivia Dalton stating that Biden’s ‘no comment’ was not related to Maui and emphasizing that he had previously addressed the issue and was actively coordinating a comprehensive response to the fires in communication with various officials and agencies. Biden, who was at his Rehoboth Beach house on August 14th, responded to the question from the press while at the beach with the first lady and friends. The Republican party seized on his response, criticizing his perceived insensitivity. Additionally, questions were raised about Biden’s handling of the situation, including his delayed visit to the affected area and his comments during that visit. Biden’s actions and statements surrounding the Maui wildfires have continued to draw attention and criticism from Republicans, including former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Biden eventually visited Maui to assess the damage caused by the wildfires and was met with further scrutiny for his remarks during the visit. The wildfires have resulted in tragic loss of life, with 115 confirmed deaths and many people still reported missing. Efforts to locate and assist those affected by the fires continue.
