With gun control becoming a hot topic in America, due to the recent mass shootings, the Biden administration held a celebration event surrounding President Joe Biden signing gun control measures into law. Among the people who had been welcomed to listen to the President speak was Manuel Oliver. Sadly, the topic is a constant reminder to the father who lost his son during the Parkland mass shooting in 2018. While giving his speech, President Biden was interrupted by Oliver as the father demanded, “You have to do more than this! You have to open an office in the White House! I’ve been trying to tell you this for years! And years!”
After being escorted from the event, Oliver spoke with the Miami Herald, admitting he interrupted the President because “it was my chance to say something to the president, and that’s a chance we don’t have every single day. That’s pretty much what this is about. There’s nothing to celebrate. It’s a big lie. We lie between ourselves thinking we have a solution to this when we actually don’t. There was no need for this event at all.”
Even before the event started, the father tweeted, “The word CELEBRATION has no space in a society that saw 19 kids massacred just a month ago. ‘Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.’ Not me, not Joaquin.”
While not being interrupted again, President Biden fell back into his usual antics of fumbling and stumbling his words. He first claimed that the Parkland shooting happened in 1908. That is 100 years before it took place. Biden also said he was Vice President during the shooting and met with the kids. It should be noted that he left office over a year before the tragedy.
As for the stumbling, not able to keep his eye on the teleprompter, President Biden explained, “It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so — end of quote. Repeat the line. Women are not without electoral and, or political — let me be precise — not and, or — or political power.”
