The White House is now being criticized for hosting a Sunday afternoon barbecue while Israel is at war.
According to a White House pool report, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden hosted a barbeque for White House Executive Residence personnel and their families in the Rose Garden.
Congressmen and conservative media figures criticized Biden’s decision to conduct the event as war broke out in Israel and American citizens were confirmed to be among those killed by Hamas.
In response to a screenshot of the president leaving his remarks on the Israeli conflict without taking questions, Stephen Miller, a contributing editor for The Spectator, criticized the president for what he perceived to be an foolish and utterly tasteless decision.
As at least 800 Israelis have died and thousands have been injured, the current death toll is expected to escalate.
