Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy on Monday asked Biden’s new Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about Joe Biden’s hypocrisy in visiting Buffalo, NY after the horrific massacre on Saturday but at the same time refusing to visit Waukesha, Wisconsin after a Christmas massacre was perpetrated there.
“How come the President is visiting Buffalo after a senseless tragedy there, but he couldn’t visit Waukesha after 6 were killed and 61 injured in an attack on a Christmas parade there?” Asked Doocy
To which Jean-Pierre responded, “He’s been to many communities. Buffalo, he’s able to go tomorrow to Buffalo before the trip. That is something that was important for him to do, but he has visited many other communities. Buffalo is not the first community, sadly, that he has had to go to because of a violent attack.” She deflected.

In one of his rare public remarks on Sunday, Biden announced: “I wanted to say a word about yesterday’s mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. A lone gunman, armed with weapons of war and a hate-filled soul, shot and killed ten people in cold blood at a grocery store on Saturday afternoon. Jill and I, like all of you, are praying for the victims and their families, and a devastated community.” He said.
“I’ve been receiving updates from my team in the White House, that’s in close contact with the Justice Department. We’re still gathering the facts. Already, the Justice Department has stated publicly that is investigating the matter, as a hate crime, racially motivated act of white supremacy and violent extremism.” He added.
“As they do, we must all work together to address the hate remains a stain on the soul of America. Hearts are heavy once again, but our resolve must never ever waver. No one understands us more than the people sitting in front of me. Moms, dads, children, family members, about how those folks in Buffalo feel today, when they got the call.” He continued.
Soon after this announcement, Biden tweeted that Jill and Joe would be visiting Buffalo on Tuesday.
The Buffalo massacre was allegedly perpetrated by an 18-year-old who, allegedly had racist intentions. He shot 10 black people to death at a Tops grocery store. The New York police have the suspect in custody as of publishing this article.
