Jill Biden ‘photo op’ won’t heal grieving Waukesha

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — While Gov. Tony Evers and his fellow Democrats gushed over First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to Wisconsin Wednesday, a survivor of the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre had no time for the political “photo-op.”

Biden joined second gentleman Douglas Emhoff and U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy in visiting Children’s Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where 18 children were transported after police say Darrell Brooks mowed down scores of parade-goers with his SUV last month. The first and second spouses also visited Waukesha, still grieving the six people killed, including an 8-year-old boy, in the rampage.

“Clearly, she’s coming for several reasons, one of them obviously is to help our folks in the Waukesha area and Milwaukee, continue to support each other, grieve and move forward from the tragedy in Waukesha,” Evers told reporters Tuesday.

Waukesha native Ken Walter, who was in the parade, was not impressed with the political visit. He described to Fox6 News the horror he and his daughter endured.

“He (Brooks) swerved and missed my vehicle,” Walter said. “I mean, I looked right in his face as he drove right at me and swerved and missed my vehicle and swerved to hit the Waukesha South High School Band.

“I witnessed him drive into people. That’s not something that’s easy to sleep with. And that’s not something I ever thought my 11-year old would see. I’m not trained for that. I’m not trained to see the blood of children on the street of the town I grew up in…and it’s all because the laws allow people like him to be out when he was in jail three days earlier.”

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm’s office recommended just $1,000 bail for Brooks, who just three weeks before the devastation in Waukesha was arrested on charges of driving over the mother of his child — with the same SUV he is alleged to have driven into the Waukesha Christmas parade.

Jill Biden’s husband, President Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris have been vocal proponents of the liberal bail reform policies Chisholm and Milwaukee County politicians have pushed.

Walter told the news outlet the first lady’s visit was just a photo opp.

“If she really wants to do something: Help reform these laws that allow guys like this to be out,” he said.

  • This regime is such a disappointment, This country was oion the right track and now we are going into the toilet. She wanted to be in the white house so badly she is willing to put Joe through HELL. She is a poor excuise for a good wife and first lady.

  • After having the always elegant and classy Melania for a first lady, Jill is such a let down. No sense of style. She always looks like she is struggling with her clothes. Teacher chic? And that old lady, bleached blond, too long hag hair. Did she and her entourage visit Darrell in jail?

  • She’s even more useless than her husband and Douglas Emhoff and Dr. Vivek Murthy are useful idiots also. I don’t know why they even let these people in the state. I am surprised they didn’t visit Darrell Brooks and congratulate him.
