Ron Johnson rips Biden for ‘apparently’ finding resources to go to Buffalo after avoiding Waukesha

President Joe Biden has been criticized by Republicans for his upcoming visit to Buffalo, New York, following the mass shooting there, but has declined to visit the scene of the deadly attack on the Waukesha, Wisconsin Christmas Parade in November.

“When Darrell Brooks murdered six innocent people and injured over 60 during the Waukesha Christmas parade last year, the White House claimed President Biden could not go to Waukesha because it would require too many ‘assets’ and ‘resources,'” he said Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin told DailyMail.com in a statement.

“But within hours of the recent senseless tragedy, the White House has apparently found the means to plan a presidential trip to Buffalo,” he added. “These horrors deserve equal attention from the President of the United States, and the media should point out the differences in his response.”

After an SUV drove into a crowd at a Christmas parade in November, killing six people and injuring 60 others, then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Biden would not attend the mourners because it would require too many “assets.”

Now, just three days after a mass shooting at a supermarket that killed ten and injured three others, President and First Lady Jill Biden travels to Buffalo to join the local community in mourning.

Biden will again call for a gun control law during his trip to Buffalo on Tuesday.

The White House told the Washington Examiner that he would “request Congress to take action to keep weapons of war off our streets and weapons of war out of the hands of criminals and people with serious mental illnesses.”

When asked about Biden’s refusal to go to Wisconsin during a November news conference, Psaki said, “Obviously, any president who visits a community requires a lot of assets…requires him to take their resources…And it’s not something, too.” I have a trip preview at this time, but we’re staying in touch with local officials.’

Psaki’s successor, Karine Jean-Pierre, took to the briefing room podium Monday for her first press briefing as White House press secretary, where she also defended Biden’s absence from Waukesha versus his immediate visit to Buffalo.

“How come the President visits Buffalo after a senseless tragedy there but was unable to visit Waukesha after a Christmas raid attack killed six and wounded 61 there?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre.

“I mean, he’s been to a lot of churches,” Jean-Pierre replied, offering little in response to his absence from Wisconsin after the tragedy.

“Buffalo he was – you know – he can go to Buffalo tomorrow before the trip,” she said Monday. “That was important to him.”

“But he has visited many other churches,” she said, without answering the question directly. “That’s not — unfortunately, Buffalo isn’t the first community he’s had to go to because of a violent assault. You know, it’s not the first, he’s been to many others.’

Pointing out the hypocrisy, Johnson of Wisconsin noted, “In his inaugural address, President Biden stated that his ultimate goal is to unite and heal our nation. Unfortunately, he did exactly the opposite.”

The Buffalo gunman appears to have scrawled on his gun the name of a white woman who was run over in last year’s Wisconsin Christmas parade.

Photos of the rifle used by Payton Gendron, 18, in the massacre show the misspelled name of Virginia Sorenson.

Sorenson, 79, was at the Waukesha Christmas parade performing as part of the Dancing Grannies troupe when a man in an SUV drove into the crowd, killing her and five others.

Biden will condemn the mass shooting during his trip to Buffalo on Tuesday as an act of domestic terrorism, a White House official said, according to The Hill.

Gendron was live-streaming his racially motivated mass shooting on popular gaming site Twitch as he opened fire on a Tops grocery store in Buffalo, New York on Saturday. Ten people were killed and three injured – eleven of the victims were black and two white.

The shooter posted a 180-page manifesto online that contained several racist tropes and references to the “Great Replacement” conspiracy theory, which claims America is on the way to replacing white Americans with immigrants and minorities.

Biden called the gunman a “lone gunman, armed with weapons of war and a hateful soul,” during an event honoring fallen police officers on Sunday.

Conservative commentator Matt Walsh, who podcasts with The Daily Wire, pointed to Biden’s immediate trip to the site of a mass shooting but refused to visit a community where another mass killing was taking place.

“When a black supremacist massacred a Christmas parade in Waukesha, the President of the United States refused to visit the victims,” ​​Walsh said. “Almost a month after the attack, he sent his wife for a photo op.”

“Biden will be in Buffalo in person Tuesday,” he noted in his tweet.

Founded by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, the right-wing media outlet The Daily Caller ran a story about Biden’s upcoming trip, asking, “But he couldn’t visit Waukesha?”

Conservatives believe Biden’s immediate action in Buffalo is a virtual signal as the attack was racially motivated and targeted a mostly rear community and involved a firearm, while the driver of the Waukesha attack, 39-year-old Darrell Brooks, is a black man was a man who had killed a by racist messages aimed at white people on social media whose weapon was a vehicle.
