(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – A mother whose sons died of fentanyl overdoses was shocked when Joe Biden laughed off accusations over the case since it had occurred before he got elected.
Rebecca Kiessling’s two sons, Caleb, 20, and Kyler, 18, died in July 2020 after taking fentanyl-laced Percocet pills.
Earlier this week, the Michigan mom testified before the House Homeland Security Committee about losing her sons. She insisted on more significant efforts to stop the smuggling of fentanyl into the US.
After her testimony, Republican US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia mistakenly declared that Kiessling’s sons would have been alive if the Biden administration had secured the Southern Border and prevented drug smuggling.
At a gathering of House Democrats in Baltimore, the president made fun of Greene since the boys had died six months before his election to the White House.
“I’ve read she was very specific recently saying that a mom, a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl, that I killed her sons. Well, the interesting thing: That fentanyl they took came during the last administration,” a chuckling Biden declared.
Rebecca Kiessling reacted by posting a social media video, declaring she had been shocked by the president’s “despicable” comments.
“This is how you speak about the death of my sons? Because a congresswoman misspoke? You mock the loss of my sons?” the bereaved mother said, demanding an apology from Joe Biden.
“How dare you. What is the matter with you? Almost every Democrat on the committee offered condolences, they at least had the decency to do that. You can’t even do that? You have to mock my pain?” the Michigan woman said further.
She noted that her sons had died before Biden took office but blasted his administration for failing to crack down on skyrocketing illegal imports of fentanyl.
“What about the 22% increase in fentanyl deaths since you became president? That represents tens of thousands of US citizens who died under your watch, an increase of tens of thousands. That represents double that number of the parents who are suffering,” Kiessling declared.
“You’re going to keep laughing? About those who did die under your watch? Do we have to bring them in so you can look them in the eyes and laugh?” she added, as cited by The New York Post.
She also said Biden’s behavior “tells you where his heart is” and spoke volumes, as he didn’t show “some serious concern for the lives lost.”
Republicans have also reacted with fury to Biden’s giggling dismissal of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s accusations about the fentanyl crisis.
The official House Republican Twitter account tweeted a single word: “DISGUSTING.”
“@POTUS needs to apologize for this immediately. No person, let alone the president of the United States, laughs when speaking about a mother who lost two sons to fentanyl poisoning,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) tweeted.
“Truly the lowest bar possible for Biden — what a disgusting person. Losing children to fentanyl trafficking is never, ever funny. Just vile,” posted Jake Schneider from the Republican National Committee.
