Sunday evening, while countless U.S. citizens were being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza, as war rages in the Middle East, and while the bodies of those slaughtered by terrorists are still being found and returned to their families, President Joe Biden thought it would be a grand time to have a Sunday evening barbecue.
According to White House pool reports, the pool reporter could hear a live band playing during the late afternoon and early evening around the White House Rose Garden and asked what was going on. The pooler was told that POTUS was hosting a barbecue for White House Executive Residence staff and their families.

Of course, it’s not a bad thing for the President to do something nice for the employees at the Executive Residence and their families, especially since he’s brought dogs with biting problems to their workplace and blamed them for cocaine found at the White House. But perhaps this particular day, when we’re in the middle of a crisis, while numerous American families are wondering if their loved ones will get out of Gaza unharmed, and while other American families are preparing to bury family members slaughtered by Hamas barbarians, is not the right day to hold that BBQ.
