'WHAT AN EMBARRASSMENT!': Speaker Johnson Blasts Biden for Seemingly Apologizing to Laken Riley's Killer [WATCH]

Biden continues to grovel at the feet of extremists in his party…

Over the weekend, President Joe Biden sat down with MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart for his first interview since the State of the Union. Capehart asked Biden about his fiery exchange with Peach State Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene over murdered Georgia nursing student Laken Riley.

Biden flubbed Riley’s name and called her killer “illegal” — which is true. Jose Ibarra, an illegal migrant from Venezuela, brutally beat Riley to death. But the far-left reaches of Joe’s party took issue with Biden using the term “illegal” instead of “undocumented.”

And now Biden is on an apology tour.

House Speaker Mike Johnson shared the clip of Biden speaking with Capehart and called him an “embarrassment” for seemingly apologizing for using the wrong term to describe a murderer.

“The president is cowering to his base and showing deference to a man who deserves none. This man is an illegal immigrant who brutally murdered Laken Riley.   President Biden should be apologizing to Laken’s family. What an embarrassment,” Johnson shared on X.

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott also blasted Biden during an appearance on Fox News over the weekend. Scott says the word Biden should be using is “murderer.”
