BREAKING: Joe Biden refuses to allow American families of Hamas hostages to attend Hanukkah event

It’s being reported tonight that Joe Biden has refused to allow the American families of the hostages being held by Hamas in Gaza to attend the White House Hanukkah event.

The families asked to attend and they were denied invitations:

Here’s more from CNN:

Several family members of US citizens believed to have been taken hostage by Hamas had asked to attend a Hanukkah reception at the White House Monday night but never received invitations, the father of a 19-year-old missing Israeli American told CNN.

Ruby Chen, whose son Itay is a reservist missing since the militant group’s October 7 attacks on Israel, said a number of the families of American hostages were in Washington, DC, this week, and had reached out to the White House asking to attend the reception but were not invited.

A White House spokesperson declined to comment.

The reception, hosted by President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden, celebrates the fifth night of Hanukkah. It will feature some 800 guests, according to the White House, including Holocaust survivors, lawmakers and various Jewish leaders.

There are still seven American men and one woman unaccounted for since the Israel-Hamas war began, according to the White House. Four Americans – a 4-year-old girl and three women – have been released.

If this doesn’t just speak volumes. Biden won’t allow them to come because he knows it will just further alienate this Hamas-loving constituents and make it harder for him to get reelected. What a schmuck.
