House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) eviscerated President Biden for his groveling apology during an MSNBC interview Saturday over his use of the word “illegal.” Biden was describing the alleged murderer of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley—whose name he couldn’t even pronounce correctly—a killer who is in fact here in this country illegally.

WATCH: Biden Apologizes for ‘Disrespecting’ Accused Laken Riley Killer by Calling Him ‘Illegal’


Johnson called Biden’s apology “an embarrassment.”

The killer should not have even been in this country, but Biden’s disastrous border policies have let in up to ten million border crossers.

The moment occurred during the president’s unhinged State of the Union speech Thursday when Marjorie Taylor Greene demanded he say Laken Riley’s name. “Lincoln — Lincoln Riley, an innocent young woman who was killed by an illegal!” he shouted.

Instead of apologizing for using the entirely correct term “illegal,” Biden should be apologizing for getting her name wrong and letting this guy in the country:

At the urging of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., Biden, during an off-script moment in his State of the Union address on Thursday, decried Riley’s killing by “an illegal.” The president later backtracked during his interview with Capehart, saying he should have instead used the word “undocumented” to describe Jose Ibarra, a Venezuelan national charged with murdering Riley, an Augusta University nursing student who was out for a run on the University of Georgia campus last month.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed that Ibarra illegally crossed the border near El Paso, Texas, and was released into the U.S. for further processing in September 2022.

As we see in so many awful cases these days, this tragedy was entirely preventable because he should have been behind bars, but of course was let go:

He was later arrested and released in New York City for allegedly endangering a child about a year later.

The Athens-Clarke County Police Department confirmed Ibarra and his brother had been cited for shoplifting in Georgia in October 2023, months before Riley’s slaying. 

Ibarra is charged with the felonies of malice murder, murder, kidnapping, false imprisonment, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and concealing the death of another, as well as the misdemeanor of physically hindering a 911 call, according to the affidavit filed on Feb. 23. According to charging documents, Ibarra is accused of “disfiguring” Riley’s skull

Biden should also be apologizing to Riley’s mother, who was devastated by the befuddled president’s inability to even get Laken’s name right.

Johnson is 100 percent right on this one — Joe Biden is “cowering to his base” and is an “embarrassment.” His prioritizing the use of woke language over showing sympathy for a murdered American shows just who this man is and whose side he’s on.
