LYIN’ BIDEN tells Maui wildfire survivors he has “sense of what it’s like to lose a home”
By Ramon Tomey // Aug 24, 2023

President Joe Biden told survivors of the wildfires that ravaged the Hawaiian island of Maui that he has a "sense of what it's like to lose a home." In reality, he only experienced a small kitchen fire that was brought under control within minutes.

During an appearance at the Lahaina Civic Center, he addressed victims by recounting an August 2004 fire that happened at his home in Delaware. "I don't want to compare difficulties, but we have a little sense – [First Lady] Jill and I – [of] what it's like to lose a home," Biden said.

"To make a long story short – I almost lost my wife, my '67 Corvette and my cat. But all kidding aside, I watched the firefighters [and] the way they responded. They ran into flames to save my wife and save my family. Not a joke."

But a report by the Associated Press (AP) about the fire in the Bidens' home contradicted the president's claim. According to the August 2004 report, the fire began after lightning struck Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware. The blaze was "contained to the kitchen" and did not spread to other parts of the house.

"Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the house, but were able to keep the flames from spreading beyond the kitchen," said George Lamborn, chief of the Cranston Heights Fire Company. He added that the fire at the Bidens' residence "was under control in 20 minutes." No one was injured in the incident, the AP report added.

Aside from this, the president also insensitively joked about the wildfires while visiting the ruins of Lahaina town. The Aug. 21 exchange happened as Biden mingled with a first responder.

"You guys catch the boots out here? That's a hot ground, man," the president quipped. This prompted laughter from the people nearby.

The insensitive joke and the blatant lie were delivered as Biden arrived on the island to survey the damage in Lahaina, located at the island's western portion, after 13 days. He told survivors: "The country grieves with you, stands with you and will do everything possible to help you recover, rebuild and respect culture and traditions."

Rep. Fry: Biden's visit to Maui "cringeworthy"

According to Breitbart, an estimated 480 people have died in the conflagration. More than 800 are still missing, with Hawaii Gov. Josh Green saying children likely comprise the majority of those unaccounted for.

The president's visit, alongside his quips, did not sit well with at least two Republican congressmen. House Majority Whip Tom Emmer from Minnesota expressed his disgust in a statement to Breitbart.

"Biden blundering in times of crisis is as predictable as a snowy Minnesota winter; it's inevitable," the congressman said. "If his presidency has taught us anything, it’s to not hold your breath for competent leadership from this White House."

Meanwhile, South Carolina Rep. Russell Fry chided the chief executive's visit to the island during an appearance on Fox Business. He told the network's Cheryl Casone that the Biden administration's "American last policies … were on full display" at that time.

"I mean, it was the most cringeworthy visit of a disaster area that I've ever seen. That comment [about the 2004 fire at his home], the comment about the ground being hot, showing up two weeks late," Fry remarked.

"I think it's inexcusable, the conduct of this administration. And quite frankly, the people of Maui and this country deserve better than what they're receiving right now."
