President Joe Biden was finally allowed by his handlers to visit the tornado-ravaged areas of Kentucky, where sections of entire towns were literally wiped off the map after a round of powerful tornadoes swept through the area last Friday.
According to Fox News, Biden was not only greeted by Trump flag-waving Kentuckians, but one person yelled “Let’s go, Brandon!” twice as the 79-year-old president stepped out of his motorcade in Mayfield, one of the hardest-hit areas of the state.
I’m with the president in Mayfield. Looking at destruction. There is a Trump flag and when Biden got out of the motorcade someone called: “Let’s go, Brandon.” They said it twice. https://t.co/5RuLK62O2Q pic.twitter.com/XTWtXE6ASu

As of this writing, the latest death toll in Kentucky is 88 confirmed dead, with possibly hundreds still unaccounted for or missing as search-and-rescue teams, largely made up of volunteer forces, feverishly comb through the rubble for signs of life.
Upon arriving in the state, Biden met with Democratic governor Andy Beshear at Ft. Campbell, before receiving a briefing on the update storm damage and ongoing efforts upon arriving in Mayfield.
In tow was Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who assured local and state leaders that the federal government was ready to assist in any way possible.
The president was skirted away for an aerial tour of the storm-ravaged area, which he falsely blamed on “climate change” this week, along with other high-profile Democrats, even though such claims are blatant lies that only serve to bolster their narrative, as tornadoes in December, while rare, are certainly not an uncommon occurrence.
After his fly-over, Biden was then given a ground tour through some of the devastated areas.
Biden then took to a makeshift podium setup in Mayfield, where he addressed a small crowd concerning the U.S. government’s promise to help.
After speaking about COVID-19 vaccines, which was of zero concern to virtually anyone in the attending crowd, Biden tossed in a few references to climate change, and promised he would help Kentuckians “build back better” in their state — a shameless plug if there ever was one.
Biden promised that the federal government would pick up the tab for rescue, clean-up, and other related expenses for the next 30 days.
In the past, when a president of the party that people didn’t vote for arrived on the scene after a natural disaster, there was nothing shown but respect. With Biden as president, and even at their lowest, the cold reception offered by Kentuckians proves that Biden is simply one of the most unliked presidents in modern history.
