Joe Biden has lived a successful, yet tragic life. He lost his first wife, Neilia and daughter Naomi in a 1972 car crash. His son Beau died of a brain tumor in 2015.These tragedies have helped Biden empathize with those who have lost loved ones in military operations. And for some reason, that really upsets Conservatives. During a weekend appearance on Fox and Friends, Lara Trump complained that Biden uses the deaths to his political advantage.
Trump told host Rachel Campos-Duffy:
“For Joe Biden, look, it’s got to be horrific to ever have to deal with losing a child, no parent should ever have to do with that. We have 13 sets of parents across America who you just referenced who had to bury their sons and daughters over this past week.
And it feels as though it becomes sort of a tool for Joe Biden to talk about his son, maybe when he doesn’t know what else to say, maybe he thinks it will give him political advantage of sorts.
And you hate to think that, but, gosh, he seems to really talk about it quite a bit.
And obviously, it’s been a big part of his life and we all understand that. But probably the wrong time to discuss it when these families had just lost their sons and daughters.
It sure would be nice if we could get the facts out there from the folks in the mainstream media. I won’t hold my breath.”
