Last night, Joe Biden gave his second State of the Union address. While the left applauded his self-aggrandizing speech, there was plenty to dislike. Joe ignored the many crises he single-handedly created. He made wild boasts about his administration in a speech many are calling a “soft launch” for his 2024 re-election attempt.
But some critics are homing in on a few shocking omissions from Biden’s speech. A recent tragedy has struck one of our allies. It’s something that affected millions, including many Americans. And now former Trump official Richard Grenell is exposing what the White House did.
Joe Biden failed to even mention the devastating earthquake impacting our NATO ally Turkey. 11,000 people have been killed, thousands missing or trapped…. I’m told the White House staff considered mentioning it and decided against it. Wow! Terrible.

This is truly shocking. Just a few days ago, our ally Turkey was hit with a devastating earthquake. It has brought the nation to its knees. So far, we know 11,000 people died from the event. Thousands are still missing or trapped in the rubble.
Yet Biden said nothing about it during his speech. And why? Grenell reveals the White House staff considered mentioning it, but decided not to. Are you kidding me? Not even a sentence offering support to our allies?
It would have taken Biden only a minute to say something–and it would have triggered applause from everyone. Yet this heartless staff refused. So, why didn’t Biden take it upon himself to say something?
He is the president, right? Why didn’t he buck his staff and say something, anyway? He does know an earthquake hit Turkey, right? Or are we keeping that from him as well? We know the White House has a tight leash on the old man.
But we just assumed he was aware of something as important as that. And that he’s intelligent enough to say, “You know what? I should offer condolences in my speech.”
But, no. Biden has constantly said he gets “in trouble” for stepping out of line. In trouble with whom? Is he really the president or just a puppet they roll out for special occasions?
Regardless of what’s really going on–this was a shocking omission and a blight on the administration.
- Biden failed to mention the devastating earthquake that hit Turkey.
- 11,000 people have died and thousands more are missing.
- The White House considered mentioning it, but declined.
