Speaking from the Roosevelt Room of the White House Tuesday night, President Joe Biden addressed the horrific shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. An 18-year-old man stormed the school, killing 18 children and three adults.
During his remarks, Biden didn't use the time to honor the victims and their families. Instead, he rehashed old jokes about deer wearing kevlar and ranted while reading the teleprompter.
BIDEN: "What in God's name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone? Deer aren't running through the forest with kevlar vests on for God's sake! It's just sick!" pic.twitter.com/gAGhti45h7— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) May 25, 2022
He also claimed it was time for Congress to "do something," but did not say what specific law would have prevented the killer from carrying out his heinous crimes. He blamed the situation on "the gun lobby."

Fox News host Tucker Carlson noticed the viciously partisan and callous nature of Biden's remarks, prompting this response.
