Speaker Johnson Comments After Biden Speaks

Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, did not mince words when he criticized President Joe Biden for his recent apology during an MSNBC interview.

In the interview, Biden expressed remorse for using the term “illegal” when discussing the perpetrator of a recent murder. The president, instead, opted to use the term “undocumented” to describe the man who is accused of killing 22-year-old nursing student Laken Riley.

Johnson called Biden’s groveling apology “an embarrassment,” and rightfully so. The fact is, the man who killed Laken Riley should not have been in this country in the first place. Biden’s reckless border policies have created a crisis at our southern border, allowing anywhere between six to ten million illegal immigrants to cross over into our country.

During his State of the Union address, the president went off-script when Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene demanded that he say Laken Riley’s name. Instead of apologizing for getting her name wrong, Biden chose to apologize for using the correct term – “illegal” – to describe the murderer. It’s no secret that Biden and his far-left base prefer the term “undocumented,” but that does not change the fact that the killer was in this country illegally.

To make matters worse, it has been revealed that the murderer, Jose Ibarra, had already been arrested for endangering a child and shoplifting before killing Laken Riley. But thanks to Biden’s lax border policies, he was released back into society, where he was able to commit this heinous crime.

Laken Riley’s mother, understandably devastated by her daughter’s death, was also outraged by Biden’s inability even to say her daughter’s name correctly. It’s clear that in trying to appease his woke base, Biden has lost sight of the fact that real American lives are at stake. He should apologize to Laken’s mother for failing to protect her daughter and for letting in criminals like Ibarra.

Speaker Johnson is absolutely right – Joe Biden’s actions are a disgrace. He is putting woke ideology above the safety and well-being of American citizens. It’s no wonder that he is losing the confidence and support of even members of his own party.
