Biden Jokes About Ice Cream Moments Before Politicizing Shooting With Call for Assault Weapons Ban
In remarks shared via a video clip over Twitter, President Joe Biden on Monday managed to politicize the shooting that took place earlier that day at at Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee. Three children and three adults were killed. . .
The approximately one-minute long video clip, which included some rather jarring edits of Biden’s full remarks at a women’s summit, featured the president referring to the shooting as “sick” as well as “heartbreaking” and “a family’s worst nightmare.” He went on to share “we have to do more to stop gun violence,” which is “ripping our communities apart, ripping at the very soul of the nation.” Biden also shared that “we have to do more to protect our schools so they aren’t turned into prisons.”
Biden had himself acknowledged at the beginning of these remarks that “we’re still gathering the facts,” but still went on to use this situation to call for an assault weapons ban. “The shooter reportedly had two assault weapons, and a pistol,” he said, before saying “I call on Congress again to pass my assault weapons ban,” and that “it’s about time that we began to make some progress.” In the full remarks included in the official White House transcript, Biden described them as AK-47s. . .

What makes Biden’s remarks even more “appalling,” as our friends at Twitchy aptly put it, is that those Monday remarks began with him joking about his love for ice cream.
“My name is Joe Biden. I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband. And I eat Jeni’s Ice Cream, chocolate chip. I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream,” he said to laughter. “By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs. You think I’m kidding, I’m not,” he continued.
