(Washington, D.C.) - This week, the President of the United States seemed to forget about the recent untimely death of this area’s Congressional representative.
President Biden addressed a crowd on Wednesday as part of a White House conference on hunger, nutrition, and health. While listing elected officials involved in the matter, such as U.S. Senator from Indiana Mike Braun, Biden named Jackie and looked for her in the crowd saying, "Jackie, you here? Where's Jackie? I didn't think she was going to be here."
Of course, Walorski died along with three others in a rural Elkhart County car crash on August 3. Biden was at one point well aware of Walorski’s passing. He and his wife issued a statement the same day extending their sympathies to the Walorski family.
On Thursday Jackie’s brother Keith Walorski tried to be as gracious as possible, saying the President’s mind probably isn’t as sharp as it used to be and he just feels sorry for him.
On Friday Biden signed a bill renaming the VA clinic in Mishawaka in honor of the deceased 2nd District congresswoman.
