New: The Stark Contrasts Between Biden White House Statements on Laken Riley and Nex Benedict Are Blood Boiling

President Joe Biden is being criticized on social media for not mentioning Laken Riley, a 22-year-old Augusta University nursing student who was killed by an illegal immigrant, He failed to mention her on his campaign trial and even failed to mention her during his speech on Wednesday about crime prevention.

And that’s not the worst part the statement they made after her murder versus the one they released Thursday after Nex Benedict’s death was ruled a suicide, it is blood-boiling.

On Feb. 26th, four days after Riley was killed and after repeatedly being asked by members of the mainstream media about it, a Biden White House spokesperson issued the following brief statement:


“We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Laken Hope Riley. People should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law if they are found to be guilty. Given this is an active case, we would have to refer you to state law enforcement and ICE.”

The statement does not appear on the White House website under “statements.”

Four days later, on March 1st, Laken Riley was laid to rest on a rainy day in her hometown of Woodstock, Georgia. What did Joe Biden do that day? Tweet about… George Floyd.

Meanwhile, in comparison to how the Biden White House addressed Laken Riley’s death – which came in the form of a passing statement from a spokesperson, here’s the lengthy statement from Joe and Jill Biden that was posted to the White House website Thursday on Nex Benedict:

Jill and I are heartbroken by the recent loss of Nex Benedict. Every young person deserves to have the fundamental right and freedom to be who they are, and feel safe and supported at school and in their communities. Nex Benedict, a kid who just wanted to be accepted, should still be here with us today.

Nonbinary and transgender people are some of the bravest Americans I know. But nobody should have to be brave just to be themselves. In memory of Nex, we must all recommit to our work to end discrimination and address the suicide crisis impacting too many nonbinary and transgender children. Bullying is hurtful and cruel, and no one should face the bullying that Nex did. Parents and schools must take reports of bullying seriously. My prayers are with Nex’s family, friends, and all who loved them – and to all LGBTQI+ Americans for whom this tragedy feels so personal, know this: I will always have your back.

To LGBTQI+ young people across the country – you are loved exactly as you are. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or alone, you can call or text 988, the National Crisis Hotline, and dial the number ‘3’ to talk to a counselor who has been specifically trained to support LGBTQI+ youth.

Biden’s White House didn’t even give an official statement on Laken Riley’s death. It was just a note from a spokesperson. These people are just evil. There’s no other way to describe it.
