Harris has to remind Biden to talk about Florida tragedy

Vice President Kamala Harris reminded President Joe Biden at the White House on Thursday to discuss the collapse of an apartment building in south Florida that killed multiple people.

Harris said, “Florida, yeah,” to Biden as he prepared to leave the podium following his remarks about the bipartisan infrastructure deal. The president then returned to comment on the tragic Florida event.

Biden’s Remarks About the Tragedy

“I’ve spoken with, coincidentally, the mayor of Miami-Dade, was in my office yesterday — not about that, obviously — but I had a long discussion with her today,” Biden stated, according to the Washington Examiner.

“I’ve also spoken with, we’ve been in contact with congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz who’s in that district. We’ve gotten in touch with FEMA. They’re ready to go. They’re down inspecting what they think is needed, but I’m waiting for the governor to ask for a declared emergency, especially as we learn what might happen to the rest of the building.”

Biden also noted “we are ready to move federal resources immediately if, in fact, we’re asked for it.”

The president noted that his chief of staff Ron Klain “has been deeply involved in this from the very beginning. We got the Cabinet involved in it now in terms of dealing with FEMA, we’re working on it.”

The Details of the Tragedy

As of Friday, at least one person has been confirmed dead, 11 injured and at least 99 are missing, according to CNN.

CNN shared the account of witness Aaron Miles who was staying next door to the building that collapsed in Surfside.

“It was awful. Kids, grownups screaming. Women and children crying. It was probably one of the worst experiences I’ve ever witnessed in my life.”

Biden’s team may be ready, but the president apparently was not. The forgetful moment appeared as one of many recent concerns in which the president has revealed issues that have led many to question his leadership.
