‘Where’s Jackie?’ Biden Calls Out Dead Congresswoman During Speech

(Liberty Bell) – Joe Biden has made quite a few serious gaffes since he’s been in office, but what happened on Wednesday is taking things to a whole new level. If you weren’t already worried about the cognitive abilities of Biden before, you most definitely will be now. It’s that bad.

BizPacReview revealed that Biden appeared to forget that Rep. Jackie Walorski, an Indiana Republican, died in a car accident a month ago, calling her out in the middle of a speech he was giving on Wednesday, even going on to search her out, despite the fact that when she passed away, he gave her an official tribute.

“The horrendous gaffe was made as Biden appeared 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 but by all accounts, she did not come back from the great beyond to make sure it went through,” BPR writer Terresa Monroe-Hamilton said.

Biden then tried to shout Walorski out, along with other individuals he was recognizing. Seriously, guys, there is something seriously wrong with this guy. We need a cognitive test immediately. Like yesterday.

“I want to thank all of you here, including bipartisan elected officials like … Senator Braun, Senator Booker, Representative … Jackie, Jackie are you here?” Biden called out as he started looking for Walorski. “I think she was going to be here to help make this a reality.”

“She must not be here,” he added. Oh boy. The optics for this are absolutely disastrous.

There was actually a tribute scheduled for Walorski at the event, but the president was not there for it.

Monroe-Hamilton then explain, “The congresswoman, 58, was killed in a tragic car accident with two of her staffers in August. Her communications director Emma Thomson, 28, and district director Zachary Potts, 27, were both killed in the crash on Aug. 3. Potts was driving at the time and turned into oncoming traffic, according to police.”

The Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office originally believed that a passenger car entered Walorski’s lane, which led to a head-on crash with the vehicle. It turned out that it was Walorski’s vehicle that got into the wrong lane, causing the deadly crash.

“The sole occupant of the northbound vehicle, Edith Schmucker, 56, Nappanee, Indiana, was pronounced deceased at the scene,” the sheriff’s department stated when giving a comment to Fox News Digital in August.

Biden actually provided a statement about the death of Walorski when the crash happened, going on to make the announcement that the White House would be flying flags at half-staff in order to honor her. Looks like he forgot all about that.

At the time of Walorski’s death, Biden commented, “Jill and I are shocked and saddened by the death of Congresswoman Jackie Walorski of Indiana along with two members of her staff in a car accident today in Indiana.”

“Born in her beloved South Bend as the daughter of a meat-cutter and firefighter, she spent a lifetime serving the community that she grew up in – as a journalist, a nonprofit director, a state legislator, and eventually as a member of Congress for the past nine and half years,” he continued.

“We may have represented different parties and disagreed on many issues, but she was respected by members of both parties for her work on the House Ways and Means Committee on which she served. She also served as co-chair of the House Hunger Caucus, and my team and I appreciated her partnership as we plan for a historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health this fall that will be marked by her deep care for the needs of rural America,” the president commented.

Biden then finished the statement by saying, “We send our deepest condolences to her husband, Dean, to the families of her staff members, Zachery Potts and Emma Thomson, who lost their lives in public service, and to the people of Indiana’s Second District who lost a representative who was one of their own.”
