Joe Biden returned to the White House after visiting Durham, North Carolina, where he was asked if he believes Christians were targeted in the Nashville shooting.
Biden chatted with reporters on the South Lawn when one asked, “Do you believe Christians were targeted in the Nashville shooting?”
“I have no idea!” Biden said.
“[Senator] Josh Hawley believes they were! What do you say to that?” the reporter said.
Biden proceeded to crack a lame joke and laughed.
“Well I probably don’t then! Ha ha ha ha!” Biden said.
6 Christians, including three children, were killed at a private Christian school in Nashville by a transgender terrorist on Monday.
Audrey Hale, 28, had carefully planned the attack with detailed maps and surveillance, police said.
“There’s some belief that there was some resentment for having to go to that school,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake told Lester Holt of NBC News.
While the available evidence points to Hale specifically targeting the Covenant School, Drake stopped short of saying Hale was going after any specific people.
Covenant’s head of school, Katherine Koonce, was among those killed by the transgender shooter.
“She targeted random students in the school … whoever she came in contact with, she fired rounds,” Drake said, referring to the shooter.
Hale is reported to have left behind writings, which are now in the hands of federal investigators.
“We have some writings that we’re going over that pertain to this date, the actual incident,” Drake told reporters hours after the shooting.
“We have a map drawn out of how this was all going to take place.”
