Well, now I have heard it all.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy wanted to know why Joe Biden has not yet visited Waukesha, Wisconsin, or if he would even be going there.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that Biden would not, and when you hear the reason, you are going to lose your mind.
Too Many Resources
Say what you want about Trump, but he never hesitated to visit locations where tragedies occurred.
We all know this is nothing more than optics for most people, but it does make a difference to that specific community and first responders.
Biden was expected to visit Waukesha, Wisconsin, after the parade massacre.
Instead, he spent the weekend at his buddy’s place in Nantucket.
When Biden is not doing that, he is going to his Delaware home or his beach home on the weekends.
Point being, when Joe Biden travels to these places, there is a significant drain on local resources to protect him.
Yet, that is the very excuse he used not to visit Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Doocy asked, “Since the president said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has been revealed by prosecutors that the assailant — the assailant swerved his truck side to side as part of an intentional act to run over as many people as possible; six people are dead, some children remain hospitalized; why hasn’t the president visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?”
“Why hasn’t [he] visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?”
Psaki responded, “Well, I would say first: As you saw the President convey last week, our hearts go out to this community, to the people in Waukesha; that we’ve been in touch, obviously, with officials there; and we’re all watching as people are recovering.
“And this is such a difficult time of year for this to happen. It’s a difficult anytime.
“Obviously, any President going to visit a community requires a lot of assets, requires taking their resources, and it’s not something that I have a trip previewed at this plan- — point in time, but we remain in touch with local officials. And certainly, our hearts are with the community as they’ve gone through such a difficult time.”
Doocy: "Since [Biden] said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has revealed…the assailant swerved his truck side-to-side to run over as many people as possible…Why hasn't [he] visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?"

Doocy missed a layup here, as the immediate follow-up should have hit him in the resources used during his other trips, but at least the American people did get to see how little disrespect this administration has for the people of this country, especially those that have suffered through a massive loss.
If that attack had happened in Detroit, Chicago, or New York, do you think Biden would have visited?
