Biden Preached Empathy During Campaign, But Refuses to Show it Now

(NewsReady.com) – As he campaigned for the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden kept talking about empathy. President Donald Trump didn’t have it, he said. It matters, he told us. He’d show it as president, he promised. Well, now he’s president – and he’s not showing any.

Since Biden took office in January, the US has suffered multiple tragedies that could have done with some presidential empathy, but there hasn’t been much on display. About all he’s done was visit the family of Jacob Blake, a wanted felon shot by cops while armed and involved in a violent dispute with his ex-girlfriend.

Biden didn’t visit Collierville, TN, after a mass shooting killed one and injured 13 on September 23. He didn’t visit Houston, TX, after 10 people died in a stampede at a concert on November 5, or Waukesha, WI, after rapper Darrell Brooks killed 6 people on November 21. There’s a growing list of tragedies where Biden didn’t visit the scene.

It’s not just the scenes of massacres he doesn’t visit, either. He hasn’t visited the Mexican border, despite his policies having caused a humanitarian crisis there (and he’s quietly backtracking on those policies too, now that it’s obvious what a disaster they are).

While Biden was looking for our votes, he took every chance to tell us about the tragedies in his own life – the loss of his first wife and daughter in a 1972 car wreck and the death of his older son in 2015. Now that he has the chance to put his fine words into practice, all he wants to do in his increasingly rare public appearances is talk about how he plans to spend our money.
