CNN ‘Climate’ Reporter Praises Biden’s Maui Visit: ‘Empathizer-in-Chief’

CNN’s “climate correspondent” Bill Weir has heaped praise on Joe Biden over the Democrat president’s controversial visit to Maui, Hawaii earlier this week.

According to Weir, Biden proved himself as an “empathizer-in-chief.”

However, Weir’s glowing review of Biden’s behavior was the complete opposite of how outraged Hawaiians, and many Americans across the country, saw it.

As Slay News reported, Biden had already provoked fury among Hawaii’s residents by refusing to comment on the devastating wildfires.

He eventually took time out of his luxury vacation to visit Maui on Monday.

But when Biden was there, he stirred up more controversy over his cold-hearted behavior.

During his speeches, he cracked jokes and told random, and untrue, stories about himself.

He even made wisecracks while visiting sites that had been destroyed by the devastation.

One local resident blasted Biden as a “vile human being” for making jokes about almost losing his valuable Corvette in a small kitchen fire.

Biden is also facing backlash on the mainland over his actions.

Fox News author Laura Ingraham slammed Biden as a “pathological liar” over the false statements he made to victims in Maui.

Nevertheless, CNN’s Weir apparently saw something in Biden’s trip that no decent-minded person anywhere could see.

“President and Dr. Biden spent several hours both over Lahaina on the ground here and meeting with both first responders and victims of this tragedy at the big shelter, the War Memorial Shelter in central Maui, and he said the right things in many cases,” Weir said during “CNN News Central.”

“When he came to the microphone to give his statements, he said the thing that a lot of folks I’ve been hearing from for two weeks have been saying that he wants Maui, the people of Maui to help determine how this place is rebuilt.”

The West Maui Land Company accused M. Kaleo Manuel, an official with the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), of delaying a response to a request to use water to refill reservoirs used by the Maui Fire Department to fight the wildfire, Hawaii News Now reported.

“He did serve as empathizer-in-chief after five days of being mostly silent on the issue publicly, but the governor said he was working behind the scenes to assure first responders that the feds had their back on this,” Weir added.

“He shared the stories we’re familiar with, of losing his daughter and wife and wondering if his sons had survived a car accident early in his political career, and that’s what so many people here are going through now.”



During remarks Monday in Maui, Biden claimed he nearly lost his home in a fire when his house had a minor kitchen fire in 2004.

That blaze was extinguished in 20 minutes.

Angry residents made obscene gestures at Biden’s motorcade during his trip to the island.

The deadly wildfire that destroyed many buildings in the town of Lahaina has killed at least 114 people, many of whom were children.

An estimated 850 people are still missing.
