Joe Biden, whose approval rating has crashed to 33 percent, has sparked massive outrage following his remarks about the terrorist attack that occurred at a Texas synagogue.
When asked whether he knew why the suspect targeted the synagogue, Biden said, “Well, no, I don’t.”
“We don’t have — I don’t think there is sufficient information to know about why he targeted that synagogue or why he insisted on the release of someone who’s been in prison for over 10 years, why he was engaged — why he was using antisemitic and anti-Israeli comments,” Biden continued.
“I, I — we just don’t have enough facts,” Biden told reporters.
This instantly sparked backlash as Biden failed to appropriately identify the terrorist’s motivations in carrying out the attack.

To set the record straight, reports have confirmed that a suspected anti-Semitic and radical Islamic terrorist, identified as 44-year-old Malik Faisal Akram, targeted a Jewish synagogue in Texas.
The suspect entered the building with “backpacks of explosives” and held hostages in a standoff with the FBI, which lasted at least 10 hours. He was later shot and killed by FBI and SWAT forces.
Akram demanded the release of convicted Pakistani terrorist Aafia Siddiqui, who is known as Lady Al Qaeda. She is a convicted felon and former courier and financier for Al-Qaeda
Siddiqui is currently serving an 86-year prison sentence after she stole an M4 assault rifle from a U.S. Army officer and fired at American and FBI personnel who were assigned to interrogate her. She was found guilty in a court in Manhattan.
Here are some of the responses to Biden’s idiotic remark via Daily Wire:
Donald Trump Jr.: “Don’t worry Brandon everyone with an IQ above 6 knows exactly why, but it surprises no one that you don’t!”
Dave Reaboi, political commentator: “We don’t know why he wanted the release of Lady Al Qaeda terrorist, huh? Ask CAIR, because they’ve spent the last year doing the same.”
Chris Stigall, radio host: “This is a real quote. I actually thought it was sarcasm by @TPostMillennial . Nope, actual quote.”
Gerry Callahan, radio host: “If you are in favor of voter ID, you are Bull Connor, Jefferson Davis, George Wallace. It is Jim Crow 2.0. If you take Jews hostage in a synagogue and demand the release of a Muslim terrorist, Joe is gonna withhold judgment. He just doesn’t have enough facts.”
Foster, political commentator: “This is so effed up. And it’s worth noting even on pure cynical political grounds that you can still demagogue on right wing domestic terrorism **without** pretending that stuff like this doesn’t exist.”
Noah Pollak, political commentator: “If you oppose Biden’s legislative agenda you’re a racist but if you take a synagogue hostage on shabbat while screaming anti-Semitic jihadist slogans Biden isn’t sure what to call you.”
Mike Petchenik, commentator: “I’ll solve that mystery for you: He’s a radical anti-Semite. That’s why. Amazing how we tiptoe around the truth.”
