WATCH: After Mass Shooting at Christian School, Joe Biden Says He Wants Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
On Monday, President Joe Biden addressed an assembled group in the White House following the murder of three adults and three children in a mass shooting at a Nashville Christian school.
President Biden opened his remarks at the Women’s Business Summit in a unserious fashion following the shooting.
”My name is Joe Biden,” he said as the audience laughed. “I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband.”
When Biden came down to address the women’s group, he said he “came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream.”
“By the way I have a whole refrigerator upstairs,” Biden continued. “You think I’m kidding.”
Biden’s unserious comments come after a shooter, reportedly a female which is very rare for a school shooter, entered the Covenant Elementary School in Nashville and murdered six before being killed by police.
In additional response to the tragedy, Biden called for a national assault weapon ban saying that it is “heartbreaking, a family’s worst nightmare,” as reported by CNN.
“We have to do more to stop gun violence. It’s ripping our communities apart,” the president said. “We have to do more to protect our schools so they’re not turned into prisons.”
It seems like President Biden and Democrats are attempting yet again to turn a tragedy into an opportunity to strip law-abiding citizens of their constitutional rights.
