Mom Ripped Into Biden After He Laughed At Her Dead Sons: 'How Dare You!'
Rebecca Kiessling’s heartbreaking story of losing her two sons to a fentanyl overdose in 2020 is one that should never be taken lightly. So when President Joe Biden had the audacity to laugh while discussing it during a House hearing on the southern border crisis, it was outrageous and shameful.
Kiessling’s sons took what they thought were Percocet pills, but unbeknownst to them, the pills were laced with opioids. Their deaths were a tragic result of the government’s failure to stop the inflow of illicit drugs into the country and Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was right to pin the blame on the government for that failure.
However, Biden’s response to Greene’s words was simply to laugh and say, “Isn't [Marjorie Taylor Greene] amazing? Oof.” This lack of empathy and compassion is unacceptable and Kiessling was right to demand an apology.
“I'm shocked to see the video today, as President Biden talked about a congresswoman who misspoke when she said that my children's deaths are the cause of President Biden's policy failures,” said Kiessling. “As President Biden was speaking about this mother who lost her two sons, he starts to laugh… This is how you speak about the death of my sons? Because a congresswoman misspoke? You mock the loss of my sons? How dare you. What is the matter with you?”
Kiessling’s words were powerful, and Biden’s response was inexcusable. What’s worse is that he had the audacity to blame the deaths on the Trump administration while ignoring the fact that it was Democrats who blocked Trump's border wall project.

It’s time for the Biden administration to take responsibility for its part in this crisis. They must take action to prevent more people from suffering the same fate as Kiessling’s sons and ensure that tragedies like this don’t happen again.
The opioid epidemic ravaging the country is a direct result of the government’s failure to take border security seriously. It’s up to Biden and his administration to take responsibility for their part in this crisis and take action to ensure that the inflow of illegal drugs is stopped.
Biden’s laughter in the face of Kiessling’s tragedy is indicative of his administration’s failure to prioritize border security and prevent the inflow of illegal drugs into the country. He must apologize to Kiessling and the American people and take action to stop the inflow of illicit drugs into our country. Only then can we ensure that tragedies like this don’t happen again.
