"Where's Jackie?"  Biden looks for dead MP in audience

“Where’s Jackie?” Biden looks for dead MP in audience

President Biden wanted to thank Congresswoman Jackie Walorski for her contribution to the meeting during Wednesday’s conference on hunger. Biden seems to have forgotten that Walorski died in a car accident nearly two months ago.

Walorski, a Republican MP from Indiana, was one of four initiators of the Cross-Party Conference on Hunger. She and three others, including two of her staff, died in early August. After the death of Walorski, 58, the White House released a statement on behalf of the president saying he and his wife, Jill, were “shocked and saddened” by the fatal road accident.

White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre said Walorski was simply on her mind as President Biden praised members of Congress for their efforts in the fight against hunger during his speech. Two days later, Jean-Pierre said Biden would receive the late congressman’s family at the White House as he signed a bill naming a hospital.
