WATCH: Biden Shrugs In Response To Maui Fires While Vacationing: ‘No Comment’

(trendingpoliticsnews) – Sporting his trademark vacant stare and a glib wave at the crowd of reporters, President Joe Biden hurried into a waiting SUV when asked about the federal government’s response to the devastating fires in Maui that have so far claimed 96 lives.

“No. No comment,” shouted the president when asked about the rising death toll. As another reporter asked the president to come over and talk, he gave a half-hearted wave and headed into the waiting vehicle.

The president’s heartless response comes as nearly 1,000 individuals are still reported missing near the village of Lahaina, which burned to the ground in a torrential hellfire of flames that were exacerbated by wind conditions which made conventional firefighting efforts nearly impossible. Victims reported jumping from high atop cliffs into the frothing ocean waves as they were left without escape paths when the fire spread rapidly across the town.

President Biden last week declared a federal state of emergency for the island of Maui, saying “anyone who’s lost a loved one, or whose home has been damaged or destroyed, is going to get help immediately.”

His latest comments, however, left online commentators aghast and compared the dodge to the president’s similar response to last year’s toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio.

“One of the most beautiful places on earth has been reduced to cinders. In Delaware: @JoeBiden can’t be bothered to care. Putting America First means getting this joker out of the White House,” wrote Kari Lake.

The lack of preparation for the blaze has already fostered concern among local residents who believe the emergency response warnings may not have been adequately prepped.

“They didn’t give us no warning. No nothing,” Lisa Panis, a resident in western Maui, said in a phone interview. “No siren, no alarms, no nothing.”

One source said the local mayor’s office is bracing for a death toll that may exceed 500.

“The amount of fatalities is expected to be more than 500 but less than 1000,” the source said. “Many of the fatalities will be children who were at home because they canceled school. Parents worked and were not there to evacuate the children. Kids had no idea they needed to leave and by the time they noticed their homes or apartments were on fire, it was too late. The government is worried about how we will react when we learn that the fire department left the fire earlier in the day and claimed it was 100% contained knowing that the winds were expected to be 70mph by the afternoon.”
