(TheConservativeNews.org) – President Biden forgot about the death of Indiana Rep. Jackie Walorski while at an event Wednesday, repeatedly searching the crowd for her and calling her name while on stage.
Biden made the grim mistake during an appearance at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health in Washington. Walorski was one of four lawmakers who sponsored legislation pushing for the conference last year.
The Republican was killed in a tragic car accident along with two of her staffers in early August.
The White House launched a confusing and nonsensical explanation for why President Joe Biden was looking for late Representative Jackie Walorski during the event.
The briefing room devolved into shouts as Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre sent reporters into a tizzy during Wednesday’s briefing when she repeatedly suggested that the president did not forget Walorski was dead when calling out for her during his remarks earlier in the day.
Biden, asked “Jackie you here? Where’s Jackie? She must not be here.”
Jean-Pierre insisted that it’s “not unusual” for people to say the names of deceased individuals when they are “at top of mind,” a phrase she continued to repeat throughout her briefing Wednesday.
Walorski’s family plans to meet with Biden at a White House on Friday, another reason that Jean-Pierre claims she was on the president’s mind during the event.
Congressman Andy Biggs also jumped on the comments and tweeted with a clip of the video.”Your daily reminder that Biden is mentally unfit to be the President of the United States.”
