If George W. Bush had failed as badly during Hurricane Katrina as Joe Biden has failed the people of East Palestine, people in New Orleans would have been cannibalizing each other.
That’s not really fair to George W. Bush, though. He sent in troops and supplies as quickly as he could after Katrina. That didn’t stop the media from trashing Bush to no end, and calling the response a “failure.” But if that was a failure, what do you call the Biden regime’s response to East Palestine?
The toxic train derailments in East Palestine, Ohio happened three weeks ago. The Biden regime completely ignored it for the first two weeks. Last Friday, President Trump announced that he’d be going to East Palestine on Wednesday of this week. That sent the White House into a panic, and Joe Biden immediately announced that he was sending FEMA to East Palestine on Saturday.
Like everything else that Joe Biden says, that was a lie. FEMA still hasn’t showed up, as of this writing.
President Trump’s visit on Wednesday went off without a hitch. He delivered drinking water, supplies and hope for the people of East Palestine. Joe Biden, who once took showers with his own daughter, flew to Ukraine to give away hundreds of millions of dollars. Maybe FEMA didn’t take Biden seriously, or they figured he’d just forget the day after he ordered them to go there.
It’s clear from their nonexistent response that federal agencies don’t want to send any of their employees into East Palestine. It’s just too dangerous, with the air and water poisoned so badly.
But after President Trump went and helped the people of the town, Biden finally had to respond. They can’t convince FEMA or the EPA to go there, since the workers and engineers are apparently all balking. Biden had to do something!
So, he finally sent Creepy Pete Buttigieg, his failed Transportation Secretary, to East Palestine. Let’s just say the people of the town were a tad underwhelmed by this.
For starters, Pete Buttigieg snuck into town and started pretending to meet with guys in hardhats at 7 a.m., before anyone knew he was there. After reporters discovered his presence and started peppering him with questions about why he and Joe Biden are such incredible failures at their jobs, Creepy Pete ran for it. He was photographed on a commercial flight back to DC about 3 hours later.
Just a couple nights before this happened, Creepy Pete really creeped everyone out. A reporter caught him out for a walk in DC and started asking him why he hadn’t been to East Palestine yet. He complained and whined to the reporter that he didn’t want to talk to her, because he was “takin’ some personal time.”
And in a moment that can only be described as bone chilling, Creepy Pete then turned to the poor reporter lady and asked to take a picture of her, in the most threatening way possible. We hope she’s not having nightmares, but that’s unlikely. Having one of the most powerful and vindictive unelected officials in the country take your picture in a threatening and creepy manner would be unsettling to anyone. As Tucker Carlson on Fox News noted, “It’s enough to give you the shivers if you think about it for too long.”
Meanwhile, the people of East Palestine are getting sicker by the day. When residents appear for television interviews, their voices are getting raspy. Many are breaking out in skin rashes. Local pets, livestock and fish are dying.
One of the few things that Creepy Pete actually did attempt during his visit to East Palestine was blame President Trump for the derailment. Creepy Pete is a nasty little B-word, and when a reporter asked him why President Trump – who is now a private citizen – made it to East Palestine before he did, he claimed that President Trump’s deregulation was the cause of the derailment.
Which makes no sense at all. Buttigieg earlier said that he didn’t come to East Palestine sooner because he was allowing the NTSB to carry out its investigation of the crash in a proper manner. How was it Trump’s fault, when the NTSB hasn’t completed its investigation, exactly? Don’t expect logic or reason when dealing with Creepy Pete. And don’t irritate him. Otherwise he might take your picture in a creepy and threatening fashion.
