"Well," Biden replied, according to CNN White House reporter DJ Judd, "I probably don't then." Then he clarified that comment to say that he was only joking about the motivations of the trans, biolgical female school shooter.
"No, I'm joking," he said. "I have no idea."
Three children and three adults were killed on Monday by 28-year-old female Audrey Hale, who went by Aiden and identified as transgender. Hale was shot and killed by police officers after being cornered on the second floor of the Covenant School.
This is in sharp contrast to Biden's reaction to the shooting deaths of three Muslim men in New Mexico in Ausgust 2022. At the time, without any evidence or information, Biden declared that the "hateful attacks have no place in America." He instantly linked the shootings to the religion of the men who were killed, assuming that these killings were hate crimes.
"I am angered and saddened," Biden said in a tweet. "While we await a full investigation, my prayers are with the victims’ families, and my administration stands strongly with the Muslim community."
Later, it was revealed that the men were not targeted due to their faith, and were in fact targeted by a man who shared their faith and was Muslim himself. Biden did not reverse course, or note that he was wrong.
Yet in this case, when a young, troubled woman targets children and staff at a Christian school, the religion of the victims not only plays no factor in Biden's mind, but is an opportunity for jokes. Instead of addressing Hawley's concern that these were faith-based attacks, Biden sees reason to make light of the deaths of three Christian children and three adult staff at the school.
"We must also tell the truth about what happened yesterday in Nashville,” Hawley said on the Senate floor. "This murderous rampage, this taking of innocent life, was a horrific crime, but more specifically, it was a hate crime. A crime that according to Nashville police, specifically targeted, that’s their word, targeted, the members of this Christian community, the members of this religious institution."
