Biden Lacks One Key Human Value – Empathy

Biden smirks while giving a speech at presidential podium
President Joe Biden’s failures and issues all surround the absence of one key human value: empathy. While skirted around by many so as to not seem to attack the man personally, the fact is Biden’s problem has always been one of character – he is an awful person. Cascading catastrophes are now hallmarks of Biden’s still unfinished first term. Whether it be the Afghanistan withdrawal catastrophe, East Palestine, Ohio chemical train derailment, and now the Maui conflagration, which has become one of America’s most deadly fires claiming (at the time of writing this) 111 lives, Biden’s carefully crafted image as “Lunch Bucket Joe” is proving to be a fraud of epic proportions. The media went full-bore during the 2020 campaign to craft the basement dweller as the most empathetic man on earth. Forbes insisted in August 2020, “How Empathy Defines Joe Biden.” (Hint: It doesn’t.) On November 2, 2020, the Atlantic bellowed, Biden May Be Just the Person America Needs: A president should connect with who we are, but also make us better than who we are.” (Spoiler: He wasn’t.) Time Magazine also in November 2020: Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the Return of Empathy When America Needs It Most. Everyone clearly got the memo that empathy was the product to push. By the way, when you’re a decent person, it’s obvious. You don’t need the media to market you as a decent person. Instead of Empathy Joe, we got Joker Joe. We got a man who seemed irritated at needing to appear to care about the pain and suffering of other people. It’s almost as if you got murdered at the Afghanistan airport, were made sick by chemicals from a train crash, or died when your entire town burned to the ground, and you were the problem for interfering with his preferred narratives. This lack of empathy allows us to draw a line from the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, to decisions that caused inflation, to using said inflation to get a bill passed that has nothing to do with it but moves along your climate cult narrative. In the meantime, everyone continues to suffer because you’ve ignored the real issue. Food inflation, housing costs, mortgage rates, rents, the cost of energy, and the price of gas, do not seem to be on Joe Biden’s mind. This same void of decency also explains Biden’s ghoulish ability to publicly deny the existence of a granddaughter, only to finally acknowledge her due to public pressure. Biden seems to be taking a twisted lead from the Taylor Swift song, believing that everyone else is the problem. As the Maui fire catastrophe continued to unfold and Americans began to realize just how screamingly horrific the situation was, a reporter shouted at Biden if he had any comments about the tragedy. Mr. Empathy said, “No, no comment.” And then started to grin as he headed into a car. Who does that? A few days later, as he was heading for a helicopter at the White House, a reporter once again shouted a question about Maui. This time Biden didn’t say anything – he just smirked and went on his way. As the death toll climbs and the residents of Maui become even more vocal about the lack of support and response from the federal and state governments, Biden has finally flown west. To vacation at Lake Tahoe. We were told the Bidens will go to Maui next week, but in the meantime, they’re chillaxing. As the Bidens get some rays and enjoy the lake, residents of Lahaina and the entire state of Hawaii are hearing reports that are shocking to the conscience about the deliberate silencing of alarms, the delay and withholding of water to quell the fire, and the decision making Hawaiian Electric that appears to have ignored concerns about powerlines because they were focused on their new green “clean energy” alternatives. The lack of empathy is not just a Joe Biden problem. He is a true representative of the left-wing political machine in this country. Republicans also have a lot to answer for as they seem unable (or unwilling) to act decisively despite the carnage that continues to unfold due to Biden’s policies. From Hawaii to California to New York to Illinois to Michigan and beyond, we see the disastrous results of the lack of empathy in every blue state. Biden’s behavior signals that he doesn’t genuinely care about the suffering of other people. When prompted, he can offer a performative version of compassion, but it comes after the smirks, laughter, and the inevitable angry recriminations. Yet, the simplest thing in the world, no matter who you are, is to care about your neighbor. It is a horrible way to live, thinking no one else matters. After all, if you’re willing to throw your little granddaughter under the bus, why would strangers in Maui matter? Why would our troops matter? Why would people in East Palestine, Ohio matter? Why would you and your family matter? It’s time to acknowledge that none of this is a mistake. It is instead the result of Joe Biden and so many others in left-wing leadership in this country who just don’t give a damn.

His BIGGEST problem is that he LIES EVERYTIME He Opens His Mouth to Speak.i’m 75 years old and I’ve NEVER seen another President LIE AS MUCH as Jackass Joe! I thought Carter and Obama were TERRIBLE but Biden makes them appear as boy scouts!

You are 100% correct. The idiot has no empathy. He cares about Joe Biden and his elitist friends. He couldn’t care less about the people in East Palestine or Maui or soldiers in Afghanistan or any of the rest of us. He cares about Joe Biden.

Biden has shown over the years that he has had a bad potty training . He resents elderly people . He shows a resentment for any authority but his own. He resents the right of the second amendment knowing that it can remove him from His office as a tyrant. That was the reason for the second amendment in the first place. He thinks that by gun control that he will stop the violence. Yet his own party and the courts have killed more by abortion that guns or wars have ever done. He refuses to acknowledge that God is the creator of all life and when you destroy life you bring a curse upon the nation. He takes away God’s glory and that in itself is robbery . When on says that women have a choice one must look at the Scripture to see that our body is not our own it was bought with a price and that is the precious blood of Jesus Christ. We are not to defile the body for it is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Biden has done all of these things. His character proves him to be a Liar and one of the sins that God hates is a liar. Read the scripture and you will find that no liar shall enter into my Kingdom . God tells you that no thief shall enter in . No sexually immoral person shall enter in. What then about this nation how many of these areas are violated By Biden and the Democratic Party. A nation can not receive God’s protection and bless when it violates His Character.

Instead of empathy Joe we got Joker Joe. No Satan Joe.
His whole administration from his cabinet to the politicians in the congress to the generals they all have no empathy. The Golden Rule has been banned and brainwashing has replaced it.

Biden has extreme anger issues and is too mentally incompetent to run this, or ANY country. These usually run hand in hand. He (or the real Marxist scum pulling his puppet strings) are dead set on destroying this country. He screams like hitler when addressing the American people. What the hell is wrong with the right? Why do they put up with this and let it continue? How deep is the right into this? What I don’t understand is, he has done so much damage, why isn’t he (or they) stopped? We have gone way past SICK, PERVERTED, DEMENTED or whatever you want to call it. Once the gender BS with children started, it should have been stopped dead in its tracks!! At this point, I don’t trust ANY of them! If the right had BA!!S, we wouldn’t be in half the mess we are in now.

He lacks more than empathy and maybe he is a full blown sociopath. They have no empathy, compassion or conscience. Excellent article describing his actions and this what it describes.

Biden has a preference empathy, a wrong kind, only if it helps himself.
If he had the good moral Christlike empathy he would first stop Abortions, not call those who have good solid , Christian morals ” enemy of the people’s and stop persecuting Christian beliefs.
No haven’t seen any Christlike empathy in this Administration.None for the Vets that are homeless, none toward the elderly, disabled, the homeless in general.No construction for them to be housed.
And no consideration for ceasing the Southern border, and all the illegals, sex trade, trafficking etc to come in our Country.
God have Mercy on us, for Cancelling You also, and Your followers. Prayers for Peace and Unity!

This article is a masterpiece of prose. I’m so dismayed this man was ever elected president after America utterly failed to heed George Santayana’s oft quoted warning, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. In 1988 Joe Biden revealed his true nature by repeatedly lying and plagiarizing during his unsuccessful effort to become the Dem nominee for President. Did you know the mainstream media at the time declared his political career over? Dead? You want to see arrogance personified? Google the subject and watch him react to the media’s questions about his plagiarizing JFK, RFK and Neil Kinnock. About his 3 degrees. About his performance in law school. Watch him challenge the group of reporters about his IQ and any of their’s. It’s quite evident nothing has changed, except arguably, gotten worse. Isn’t it patently obvious the mainstream overlooks Biden’s ineptness? Can you imagine what they would have said if Trump had fallen off a bicycle? Stumbled 3 times climbing the steps of AF 1? Cowardly turning his back and walking away from press corps questions?
I don’t know if there is enough conservative money to compete with left wing resources. But the young man from Virginia whose simple song created such an uproar may be indicative of a tsunami of rebellion against “the rich north of Richmond”. Let’s hope so.

Of course he has no empathy. He is a very Rich Democrat who got fat cheating throughout his life. It is terribly sad that he still has the power to cheat us of electricity, gas cooking and privacy in our own homes.

I remember when Joe’s wife and daughter were killed in an accident and his two sons hospitalized and Joe put pressure on to destroy the truck driver for the accident caused by his wife. In addition, he took the oath of office at his son’s bedside a direct violation of law because one must be sworn in, in Washington D.C. when a doctor saved his life by removing a brain aneurysm not once but twice on Joe and then asked Joe to speak to others about it Joe wanted no part of it because it might affect his political career. For me the worse is the disrespect shown to our disabled veterans and Gold Star mothers.

This a certainly no surprise coming from an illegitimate, incompetent, inconsiderate lying “misfit in chief” who, like many others have made their careers by taking advantage of the American people! They are propped up by a corrupt news media who have no desire for promoting honest journalism! Hard-working Americans are being financially and emotionally devastated from the devisive decisions forced on the people by the radical left wing group of anti-American, Woke loving Marxist ideologs! No longer is there justice in America! Has our country reached the point of no return? Only time will tell…

Joe Biden was elected to the Senate my junior year of HS. He has always been stupid, he’s always been a grifter. The epitome of a crooked DC politician. The MSM painted him as kindly grandpa Joe. A leopard never changes it’s spots. The dems needed a pliable yes man for Obama’s third term. A position Joe was born for. But now, the stupid grifter has dementia.

I can’t wait to get this idiot out of the White House. Inflation is choking the nation. We are living not even paycheck to paycheck anymore; we are robbing Peter to pay Paul; always trying to chide which bills to pay to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. When people forgo their medications in lieu of a meal something is very wrong. I am not talking even about people on social programs, I am talking about hard working individuals like me. Yesterday, we had to refuse one of my husband’s prescriptions because we didn’t have enough money even after insurance coverage.

Biden is the most corrupt and treasonous, liar and thief we have ever witnessed in American politics. The incompetence of this bungling fool throughout his sordid career has only been surpassed by his narcissism, arrogance and lawless tyrannical attitude. The progression of evil, Godless people is described in Romans chapter 1 and verse 22 says, “Professing themselves to be wise, they become as fools”. The so-called Biden administration is the biggest collection of Godless fools in history. What a disgraceful time in our history as these fools preside over the planned and engineered demise of our nation. Stand strong against this tyranny, pray for wisdom, trust God and remember that God will have the final say in this. Proverbs 11:21 says,”Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.”

I usually applaud Tammy Bruce for her insightful and intelligent political commentaries. However, I must point out that Joe Biden lacks EVERY positive human value. I would challenge Ms. Bruce to name ONE positive human value that hapless Joe possesses. Well, besides his behavior around little girls, of course.
Before showing advanced stages of dementia, Slow Joe was something of a dim bulb. He was just smart enough to realize that he could not use his law degree to make a living so he did what most dullards do, run for political office. After all, if one cannot become rich while “serving the people”, that one needs care in a facility for the mentally crippled.
I never understood the attraction to socialism until people like Clinton, obama and Biden started to influence the majority of the voters. These “citizens” obviously look to the government for, …………. well, just about everything. Why work hard when the government acts like a nanny who holds your hand through life. The liberals, who earn comfortable salaries, vote for the Democrats because they believe that the underprivileged need financial help, your financial help, not theirs.
And then, there are the illegal alien voters, and the dead voters who swell the vote counts for the Democrat candidates. It’s amazing that some Republican candidates ever win elections. Socialism should have died on the vine back in 1848 when Karl Marx wrote his “Communist Manifesto”. Unfortunately human attraction to envy, greed and sloth ensures that the false political theory of socialism will thrive and grow on a never ending basis.
When Joe Biden’s mentality is being considered, it’s hard to see the forest for the corrupt trees.
