Biden Cracks Jokes during Hawaii Speech, Compares Maui Wildfires to Minor Kitchen Fire in His House

Hawaiians have been expressing outrage after Democrat President Joe Biden reluctantly visited Maui in the wake of devastating wildfires.

During his Monday visit, Biden vacantly wandered around the sites of the disaster and gave rambling speeches.

At one point, while standing at the presidential podium, Biden appeared lost and confused about where was.

As Biden stood at the podium looking around blankly, Democrat Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) appeared concerned and asked the president to drink some water.


The wildfire struck on August 8th, almost a fortnight before Biden bothered arrived.

Over 100 people were killed in the fired and more than 2000 homes were destroyed.

Almost 1000 people are still unaccounted for.

Nevertheless, Biden used his speech to crack jokes and tell a rambling story about himself.

“I don’t want to compare difficulties,” he said.

“But we have a little sense, Jill and I, of what it’s like to lose a home,” he added as he started to tell a story to compare difficulties.

“A sunny Sunday, and lightning struck at home on a little lake that’s outside of our home, not a lake a big pond,” Biden continued.

“And hit a wire that came up underneath our home that hit the heating duct, an air conditioning duct.”

“To make a long story short, I almost lost my wife, my ’67 Corvette, and my cat,” Biden said, chuckling at his joke.

“All kidding aside, I watched the firefighters, the way they responded… they ran into the flames, saved my wife, saved my family. No joke.”

Biden was referring to a small kitchen fire in 2004.

Firefighters had Biden’s minor fire under control within minutes.


Biden continued to crack jokes during his other speeches.


Many Hawaii residents have been outraged at Biden’s lack of interest in the fires.

Biden has been on vaccination and refused to comment on the disaster.

Before he arrived, a White House spokesperson said that one of Biden’s priorities would be to make sure residents were aware that he had “been there since day one.”

However, Hawaiians are acutely aware that Biden hasn’t been anywhere near them since day one:

As many noted, Biden was on vaccination while Hawaii burned.
