A woman from Michigan lost her two sons to an overdose of fentanyl in 2020. She is still waiting for an apology from Joe Biden for suggesting that the deaths were not his fault.
On Thursday, Rebecca told the Washington Examiner about the video she posted on Facebook, which showed Biden seemingly ignoring her pain.
She said she was disturbed, and Biden still has to apologize to the families of those who died.
On Tuesday, she testified before a congressional committee about the experience of her family, which lost two of their children to an overdose of fentanyl in July 2020.
The two sons of Kiessling, Caleb and Kyler, died after they accidentally took pills that contained a fatal amount of synthetic fentanyl.
During the hearing, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia asked why the Biden administration did not take action to address the growing number of immigrants trying to enter the US illegally. According to the US Border Patrol, over the past two years, more than 5 million people have been apprehended while trying to enter the country illegally.
During a gathering of the Democratic Party in Baltimore on Wednesday, Biden noted that the drugs that killed the two sons came from the last administration. After seeing Biden's statement, the family of the victims of the opioid epidemic responded to him on Facebook.
In the video, which she shared on Facebook, she said Biden was disrespectful and showed no regard for the families who lost their loved ones.
The testimony before the senior members of Congress left her convinced that the country's leaders did not take the necessary action to address the opioid epidemic.
According to her, she was also surprised by how little the Democrats were willing to address the growing issue of illegal immigration.
She was also disturbed by how the Democrats used their allotted time to lecture witnesses instead of asking them questions.
Although many Democrats expressed their condolences to the family of the deceased, she said they did not understand the seriousness of the situation.
She also thought that the Democrats had the same talking points. According to her, they claimed that the busts of drugs were the biggest in history.
She also said that the number of people who died due to the opioid epidemic has increased. She attributed this to the increasing number of drugs being smuggled into the country.
In his State of the Union speech in February, Biden announced that he would be addressing the opioid epidemic. He also visited the El Paso, Texas, land ports of entry to discuss the ways in which the country's authorities could prevent the illegal flow of fentanyl.
