During his interview on ABC, Biden was asked by David Muir if he had spoken to the mayor of East Palestine, OH and Biden said he could not ‘recall’ if he had spoken to him.
You’d think this was a pretty important phone call, and if Biden had talked to the mayor in the past two weeks he’d remember the conversation.
It’s a perfect metaphor for the Biden administration’s response to the tragedy.

BIDEN: ‘Can’t remember’ I talked to East Palestine mayor and ‘don’t think’, ‘I talked to everybody I could talk to’
In part of an interview that aired on Friday’s edition of ABC’s “World News Tonight,” President Joe Biden said he “can’t remember” if he ever talked to the mayor of East Palestine, Ohio, and didn’t think he had, but he “talked to everybody there was to talk to” and he “made it clear that everything was available.” He responded to the question whether there were any plans to visit by saying.
Host David Muir asked, “As you know it’s been three weeks since the toxic train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio. The mayor says he saw you in Ukraine and he says, that tells you they don’t care about us. He’s asking, is the president coming to Ohio? Do you have any plans to travel to Ohio and have you talked to the mayor yet?
Biden replied, “Let’s put this in perspective, within two hours of that derailment, the EPA was within two hours. Every major agency of the United States government that had anything to do with rail and/or cleaning was there and is.

In Biden’s defense, he probably doesn’t remember what he had for breakfast this morning.
