Biden Criticized For Laughing While Discussing Fentanyl Deaths of Mother’s Sons

 March 4, 2023

Wednesday night, President Joe Biden drew harsh criticism, after he laughed briefly while discussing a mother who lost her two sons to fentanyl. The Michigan mother, Rebecca Kiessling, testified before the U.S. House this week about how the fentanyl epidemic claimed the life of her two sons, Caleb and Kyler.

In her testimony she accused the President stating-

“You talk about welcoming those crossing our border ‘seeking protection’ — you’re welcoming drug dealers across our border!”…“I don’t use the term “drug overdose” because this was not an overdose. This was murder. My children got fake Percocet [pills] that were fentanyl. There was no Percocet in it at all. And it’s “homicide,” not “overdose,”

- Rebecca Kiessling

If the fentanyl streaming across the border had been weapons of mass destruction from a foreign government,

Kiessling further argued, the U.S. would take greater action. She said-

“If we had Chinese troops lining up along our southern border with weapons aimed at our people, with weapons of mass destruction aimed at our cities, you damned well know you would do something about it. We have a weather balloon from China going across the country. Nobody died, and everybody’s freaking out about it,” and…

“But 100,000 die [Americans] every year, and nothing’s being done. Not enough is being done. Numbers are going up, not down. And you talk about [migrant] children being taken away from their parents. My children were taken away from me!”

-Rebecca Kiessling

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) GA During the hearing, pinned the blame on Joe Biden’s government, stating-

“This government has failed you, and it’s failing American families, and it’s failing, most of all, it’s failing our children and our young people,”

-Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA)

Greene tweeted, following the hearing-

“Listen to this mother, who lost two children to fentanyl poisoning, tell the truth about both of her son’s murders because of the Biden administrations’ refusal to secure our border and stop the Cartel’s from murdering Americans everyday by Chinese fentanyl.”

-Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) GA

Sadly, in his speech, at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, on Wednesday night, Joe Biden found it funny and chuckled when speaking about Greene’s comments concerning Kiessling's testimony. He mockingly said, as he laughed-

“Isn’t [Greene] amazing? Oof,” [Biden said while laughing] “I should digress, probably, I’ve read, she, she was very specific recently, saying that a mom, a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl, that, that I killed her sons. Well, the interesting thing is that fentanyl they took came during the last administration,”.

-President Joe Biden

 Alleging that he did not take the fentanyl deaths seriously, both Conservatives and Republicans lashed out at the president on Twitter. RNC Research tweeted-

“Under Biden, illegal drug trafficking is WAY up. 1,400 pounds of fentanyl was seized at the southern border in January. It was the SEVENTH month in a row where more than a thousand pounds was uncovered by Border Patrol with much more passing through undetected.”

- RNC Research

That Biden can be so dismissive, defensive of and disassociated from the pain of a mother who has lost two sons over Fentanyl is reprehensible. The fact remains that his open-door policy at the border is killing Americans. Whether it be these two or others, the fact remains that Chinese Fentanyl kills. Biden, apparently just felt like defending himself and making fun of Rep. Greene who did take Ms. Kiesslings’ loss seriously.

I wonder how Biden would feel if someone were to make fun of his losing his son, without disregard for how he died? At 80 years of age, one would think he could use a little tact, instead of coming across so flippantly. No wonder the Chinese don’t seem to care what he thinks. They profit, with his blessing while Americans die.

“The skepticism which men affect towards their higher inspirations is often not an honest doubt, but a guilty negligence, and is a sign of a narrow mind and defective wisdom.”
