Joe Bidden is slammed for laughing while mentioning men’s deaths due to fentanyl overdose

In addition, she also talked about Rebecca Kiessling in her tweet. Kiessling lost her two sons, 20-year-old Caleb and 18-year-old Kyler died of an accidental fentanyl overdose in July 2020.
The two men unknowingly consumed the medicine believing them to be Percocet but it turned out to be laced with the powerful narcotic.
Additionally, Kiessling testified in the House about the fentanyl epidemic.
Biden on the other hand did not hold back and fired back at Greene on Wednesday night.
He remarked, ‘Isn’t she amazing? (Laughter.) Oof. (Laughter.)’
Biden continued, ‘I was the reason… she was… she was very specific. I shouldn’t digress, probably. She… (laughter) I’ve read she was very specific recently, saying that a mom… a poor mother who lost two kids to fentanyl, that… that I killed her sons. Well, the interesting thing is that the fentanyl they took came during the last administration. (Laughs.)’
Meanwhile, Biden addressed multiple issues during the Wednesday conference which included the bipartisan legislation he passed in the first two years of his presidency.
