Aloha Joe…Blue Hawaii Sees Red
Cartoon published 08/23/2023
Hawaii has long been among the bluest of blue states for Democrats. No doubt most Hawaiian citizens voted for Biden. That may be changing.
Hawaiians, particularly those on the island of Maui, are not happy with Joe. First he insulted them by coldly stating ‘no comment’ after the devastating fire in Lahaina. At the time, Joe was enjoying still yet another vacation on a beach in Delaware. Joe’s ‘no comment’ period stretched a full week, and then another week passed before outrage forced him to travel to our 50th state. Traffic was stopped to accommodate his security. The residents in Maui were no doubt annoyed that they were late to work as a result, but the worst was yet to come.
Biden actually made lame jokes including one about the ground underneath his feet being ‘hot, man!’ He proposed giving burned-out residents $700 and tied it to even more billions of taxpayer dollars being sent to Ukraine. Then, perhaps in some effort to ‘connect’ with the residents, Biden spewed his lie about almost losing his wife to a kitchen fire. Thank goodness she was saved by fireman—along with his cat and rare Corvette! This was an ugly insult to those who lost everything—including children.
Then Biden fell asleep during a memorial event. At one point Biden looked dazed and confused at the podium. A Hawaiian official offered Joe a bottle of water. Joe acted as if he didn’t hear him and numbly shuffled off, apparently unaware of where he was.
Meanwhile, FEMA officials were enjoying their stay at several beachfront five-star hotels in Wailea at around $1,000 per night while fire victims received $700. We have a corrupt government that feels it deserves the royal treatment.
Meanwhile, Biden’s motorcade was met with well-deserved curse words and stiff mid digits erupting from citizens on the island. Aloha, Joe.
