Crowds of devastated residents jeered and booed at Biden as he pulled up in his limo to the Sacred Heart Church.
Infowars.com reports: In response to the chants of “do something,” Biden responded with “We will”, presumably referring to gun control measures proposed by several Democrat lawmakers last week.
During his visit, Biden met with the school’s principal Mandy Gutierrez, and tasked his wife Jill Biden to lay the flowers on the memorial as he doddered alongside her.
True to form, Biden didn’t deliver any speeches or answer any questions from the press during his quick visit.
Local reporter Stella Chavez told CNN that Biden’s visit received mixed reactions from the residents, with many worried that his appearance would further politicize the shooting that left 19 children and 2 teachers dead.
“I think it depends on who you ask,” Chavez said. “I think, for the most part, the families who were affected want to focus on their loved ones who were killed. And I think having the leader of our country come here and express, you know, his condolences is important to them. But I also know, I’ve heard people say, you know, now is not the time for him to come here.”
“I think some people are concerned about politicizing this event. And I’ve heard a lot of outrage from people,” she continued. “But I’ve also heard from folks who say, ‘I don’t want to focus on that, on what could have happened, what should’ve happened, I just want to focus on the kids.’ So I would just say it depends on who you ask. But I do think it’s significant that he’s coming here and especially so soon after another similar trip to Buffalo where a horrible mass shooting also happened.”
