WATCH: KJP Snaps at FOX’s Peter Doocy during Live Press Briefing

Clashing Over Maui Fires: Truth or Smoke Screen in Government's Response?
Clashing Over Maui Fires: Truth or Smoke Screen in Government's Response?

The ineptitude of the Biden administration has once again been exposed, this time in the face of the tragic Maui wildfires that have ravaged Hawaii. During Wednesday’s press briefing, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy had the temerity to ask about the federal government’s response to the blaze in comparison to their handling of recent hurricanes. Shockingly, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre lost her cool and snapped back at Doocy, claiming that his question was “flawed in many, many ways.”

But the question Doocy posed was not only valid, it was necessary in order to hold the administration accountable. With a current death toll of 114 and over 850 people still missing, the federal response should have been swift and efficient. Yet, it left much to be desired.

Interestingly, local residents felt the need to protest Biden’s visit to the island, perhaps in protest of the administration’s lackluster response. If the federal response was indeed as robust as Jean-Pierre claimed, why were the people of Hawaii so incensed?

In fact, had the administration taken the wildfires as seriously as it did hurricanes, there could have been a chance to save more lives and contain the damage. Instead, the Biden administration once again demonstrated their ineptitude in handling crises.

The question remains: why was the Biden administration so ill-prepared to handle the Maui wildfires? And why did the White House resort to defensiveness and dismissiveness when confronted with these legitimate concerns?

It’s time for Americans to demand better from their leaders, to demand accountability and transparency. The Biden administration has shown time and time again that they are incapable of handling crises and responding effectively to the needs of American citizens. It’s time for a change, a leader who will put the needs of the people first and prioritize their safety and security above all else.
