WATCH: Joe Biden makes sick joke at the worst time possible

President Biden chronically has his foot in his mouth. He can’t seem to get through a speech without something going haywire.

And Joe Biden made a sick joke at the worst time possible.

Yesterday, the United States was hit with a mass shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee.

The shooter, a 28-year-old transgender individual, brazenly attacked and killed 3 elementary school children and 3 staffers of the school.

Thankfully, police were able to neutralize her within fifteen minutes of the first 911 call.

New details are showing that the shooter wrote a manifesto – though specifics haven’t been released yet – illustrating a possible preplanned targeting of the school.

The shooter is the second trans-identified female school killer in the past four years.

In the wake of the tragedy, Democrats have been quick to point the finger at Republicans for not banning so-called “assault weapons” – never let a good crisis go to waste.

But the most bizarre statement came from President Biden in his first public acknowledgment of the shooting.

His first remarks were a joke that he only showed up to the White House event because he heard there would be ice cream.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m Dr. Jill Biden’s husband,” the 80-year-old president began his remarks at an East Room gathering of women-owned businesses.

“And I eat Jeni’s ice cream — chocolate chip. I came down because I heard there was chocolate chip ice cream,” he said.

“By the way, I have a whole refrigerator full upstairs,” Biden added at his only scheduled public appearance of the day. “You think I’m kidding? I’m not.”

The president then turned serious to address the shooting at the Covenant School, in which three students and three staff members were killed, calling it “sick” and “a family’s worst nightmare” before demanding once again that Congress pass a ban on assault weapons.

Then Biden started talking about ice cream again – shouting out a rep from Jeni’s.

“The businesses represented in this room stretch across industries, from restaurants to architectural firms to hardware stores, plus Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. And by the way — by the way, it is splendid,” Biden gushed.

“If I were allowed to take you upstairs, you got a whole freezer full of Jeni’s chocolate chip ice cream,” Biden went on — closing his eyes slightly as if to reminisce about taking a bite.

“You know it’s pretty dull when you’ve been in public life as long as I have and you’re known for two things: chocolate chip ice cream and Ray-Bans sunglasses, but what the hell,” the president added.

In addition to the ill-timed attempt at humor, Biden’s extended ice cream aside is likely to be fodder for those who say he is simply too old to be elected to a second term.
