Tragedy is not the time to shame our nation! Laura Ingraham scorches divisive Biden, ‘phony’ politicians

(Video: Fox News)

President Joe Biden led Democrats who leaped at the chance to shame Americans into accepting severe new restrictions on their Second Amendment rights by engaging in more of his shameful demagoguery in his address to the nation after the horrific Texas school shooting that claimed the lives of 19 young children and two adults but Laura Ingraham wasn’t having it.

On Tuesday’s edition of the “The Ingraham Angle” the Fox News host tore into the nation’s 46th president for his divisive words in which he once again eschewed an opportunity to heal and unify the country and ease the pain of the suffering of the victims’ grieving loved ones in favor of an intensely political message that was pure red meat to the party’s base in a critical election year.

“Now I want to be very, very clear tonight,” Ingraham began after playing clips of Biden’s address. “President Biden appeared on camera tonight for less than eight minutes, not because he believed that his words would comfort the families or the friends of the victims. Not because he believed that he would calm what are obviously frayed nerves of a worried nation, parents who were worried and he didn’t do it to unite America in this time of grief.”

“No, he did not,” she said. “He spoke tonight because politics is selfish, because in today’s twisted world, it’s considered perfectly appropriate to exploit the massacre of innocent, little kids in order to try to turn around your own sagging poll numbers.”

“Today, Reuters-Ipsos has Biden at the lowest approval of his presidency, 36%,” she added, referencing yet another poll illustrating public dissatisfaction with the deeply unpopular leader. “So this attempt at political resuscitation on Biden’s part — it’s despicable. But it’s altogether predictable, isn’t it? The White House has tried this many times before, and it’s failed.”

“They tried to use the Russian invasion of Ukraine to prop him up as a credible commander in chief,” she continued. “They tried to use the leak of the draft Roe decision at the Supreme Court to rally his base, and they’ve tried all along to use race, or January 6th to divide Americans and boost his own standing, none of it worked.”

“In the month of April alone, 51 were shot and killed in Chicago, we’ve talked about this a lot lately on The Angle,” she said, calling attention to the lack of Biden’s concern over urban black-on-black shootings. “And that’s where a liberal mayor has presided for as long as I can remember, and so far this year by the way, 218 people have been killed in Chicago, have you heard Biden give an impassioned address of that?”

“He doesn’t speak about this, no Democrat really does, not even Lori Lightfoot, not much,” she added. “Now we know why. Because those victims, they’re able to go nameless and faceless because the elites kind of find their deaths irrelevant because those deaths cannot be used – at least they think they can’t be used – or they wouldn’t be you know, efficient to use them for political benefit.”

Ingraham added, “So after all this horrific news I will still say this, Americans know a phony when they see one And any politicians, I don’t care if you’re Republican, Democrat or somewhere in between, and you’re seeking to use what happened today to help yourself — you should be ashamed of yourself.”

“We have a political process in our country,” she said. “If you want to change the law, if you want to change the Constitution, go ahead and get the votes and change the law or amend the Constitution. If you can do that, you will find success in whatever your goals are. But if you can’t do that, don’t come to the nation at a time of tragedy and try to shame the rest of us, because we know what time it is. We know what’s really going on.”
