Conservative host Tucker Carlson tore into Joe Biden following a speech he made within hours of the shooting at Robbs Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, accusing the president of “desecrating the memory” of people who had only just been killed by using the incident to amplify “tired talking points of the Democratic Party.”
An angry Biden claimed that the shooting could have been prevented had he been listened to when he called for a ban on ‘assault weapons’.
“I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. And don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage,” Biden said before asserting that America has to “stand up to the gun lobby” and enact “common sense gun laws.”
Commenting on Biden’s performance, Carlson described him has “Frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the lives of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party.”
“Dividing the country in a moment of deep pain rather than uniting,” Carlson continued, adding “His voice rising, amplified only as he repeats the talking points he repeated for only 35 years in the United States Senate. Partisan politics being the only thing that animates him. Unfit for leadership of this country.”
The host further noted “What a moment this would’ve been if he had stopped a sentence in and said ‘we’re gonna pray for these families and let’s let this marinate for a minute. Let’s stand respectfully before a tragedy.’ And Joe Biden has lived tragedy so he can say that with some credibility. He moved immediately into some DNC rant of a cue card. That’s the president?”
Of course, Biden is just the tip of the iceberg, a whole host of anti-Second Amendment actors again jumped to action within minutes of the horrific event to play politics.
Others saw an opportunity to use the tragedy for other political avenues:
CNN brought out Homeland Security official Juliette Kayyem who spoke of “destroyed” “little bodies” of the 18 students so far killed in the attack, while calling for a suspension of immigration enforcement in the area, as well as anti-gun activist Fred Guttenberg who called Republicans “evil”:
