Comedian Rob Schneider slams president over Hawaii response: ‘Biden hates Americans’

Comedian Rob Schneider has criticized President Joe Biden over his response to the fires in Hawaii, stating that the president “hates Americans.”

Schneider posted a screenshot on X, the platform once known as Twitter, of Biden stating he had “no comment” on the fires on the island of Maui in Hawaii, where over 100 people have died. The comedian, who has identified as an independent in the past, said that the president had sent billions of dollars to Ukraine to aid its war against Russia, while Hawaii, located in the United States, would only be getting a fraction of the support Ukraine is getting.

“$115,000,000,000 BILLION US TAX PAYER DOLLARS TO UKRAINE,” Schneider wrote on social media. “$1.9 million dollars to American Maui fire victims. Biden hates Americans.”

In another post, Schneider said it was of the “utmost importance” for U.S. residents to protect their freedom and to stop freedom’s “erosion caused by the puppet Biden Regime.” Schneider wrote this while sharing a quote from Thomas Sowell, which encouraged people to vote for those who will defend the Constitution.

Schneider said during a 2017 interview with Larry King that he identifies as an independent, though he leans more conservative.

The White House announced last week that the Federal Emergency Management Agency had authorized critical needs assistance to provide a one-time payment of $700 per household to applicants in Hawaii who were displaced from their homes due to the fires. The payment has been criticized by many online, as some believe that applicants should be paid more.

Biden is scheduled to visit Maui on Monday amid a planned vacation in Lake Tahoe. When asked if he could provide any comment on the trip, the president responded, “No, not now.”

Officials in Maui said on Sunday night that 850 people were reported missing while the search-and-rescue effort continues. The fire is confirmed to have killed 114 people, but that number could increase.

When asked about the president’s response to the fires, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has said that questions “should be asked” regarding how the Hawaii wildfires originated.

“We certainly want to make sure that we get to the bottom of what happened here and understand what happened,” Jean-Pierre said. “What we’re going to focus on right now, and we’re going to let the investigation happen, because, as I said, we’ve got to get to the bottom of that, what we are going to focus right now to make sure the survivors in Hawaii, in Maui, have everything that they need to rebuild.”
