Tulsi Gabbard blasted Joe Biden and his administration’s response to the devastating Maui fires, calling it a “horrible, horrible disservice.”
“The sad part is, we are eight days past this wildfire. And I’m in constant touch with community members and leaders,” Gabbard said.
“They are still not seeing a response from the county, the state, the federal government, to be able to go out and help them,” Gabbard told Fox News.
“The community support hubs that they have are 100 percent community-led, volunteer supply collections, conducting all these co-ordinations on their own.”
“They feel like the government doesn’t care about them.”
“That’s a horrible, horrible disservice to people who have gone through a kind of loss that we can’t even imagine,” she added.
“Not only are they not getting the support that they need, but oftentimes they have been getting blocked from being able to receive the support from their friends and neighbors,” Gabbard asserted.
“This is a crisis that is continuing on,” Gabbard warned.
“It is not at all lost on the people of west Maui when they are told that FEMA is going to give those impacted a one-time $700 payment,” she continued.
“And as they look at the news, they are seeing tens of more millions of dollars being sent to Ukraine.”
“Some of them said, hey, maybe if we change the name of Maui to Ukraine, maybe they will pay attention to us,” Gabbard noted.
Biden has barely commented on the Maui fires.
As we reported earlier this week, Biden was asked for comment on the rising death toll from the Maui fires, but he responded by smirking and ignoring questions.
