The Biden administration has shown
repulsive indifference to the victims of the tragic Maui fires that have laid
waste to Lahaina and taken the lives of more than 100 people, with hundreds
more are still missing. On two separate occasions, when President Biden was
asked about the tragedy, he responded “No comment.” When he finally deigned to
interrupt his most recent vacations and make an hours-long appearance in
Lahaina, he told those who had lost everything that he could relate to them

nation’s armed forces would provide pop-up homes for 250 Maui families by the
end of October, with the first shipment of 20 arriving within days. This
despite the fact that Hungary was reportedly the only European Union member
state that was not invited to Biden’s “Summit for Democracy” this year. Moreover,
Biden deemed Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán one of “the thugs in the
world” in 2020 while also attempting to assassinate the character of Donald
Trump, who was friendly with Orbán.
the reason Hungary can devote more attention—and resources-- to disaster

etiquette, climate change…and locking up its political opponents.
