A grieving Michigan mother, whose two sons died of fentanyl poisoning, has slammed Democrat President Joe Biden after he laughed about their deaths during a speech.
As Slay News reported, Biden provoked outrage by laughing while telling the story of Rebecca Kiessling and her sons Caleb, 20, and Kyler, 18.
The young men died in July 2020 after taking fentanyl-laced Percocet pills.
In a powerful statement during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Tuesday, Kiessling blasted the federal government for allowing drugs and illegal aliens to flow across the porous Southern Border.

Kiessling said Biden’s actions were “despicable” after he laughed about her story while arguing that his administration was to blame for the deaths.
Biden used her tragic story to mock Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA) suggestion that the open border policies of Biden and the Democrats were responsible for the deaths.
He laughed while stating that they died during President Donald Trump’s administration.
Biden said: “Isn’t Marjorie Taylor Greene amazing?
“I should digress, probably, I’ve read, she, she was very specific recently, saying that a mom, a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl, that, that I killed her sons.
“Well, the interesting thing is that fentanyl they took came during the last administration,” Biden added while laughing.

Kiessling was outraged at Biden’s remarks.
“This is how you speak about the death of my sons?” she said in a video statement.
“Because a congresswoman misspoke?
“You mock the loss of my sons?
“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?
“That represents tens of thousands of US citizens who died under your watch, an increase in tens of thousands.
“That represents double that number of the parents who are suffering.
“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 said.
