Laken Riley’s mom blasts Biden for fumbling daughter’s name during speech: ‘Pathetic’

The mother of Laken Riley, the college student slain by an illegal immigrant, is blasting President Joe Biden for fumbling her late daughter’s name during his nationally televised State of the Union address.

”Biden does not even KNOW my child’s name – it’s pathetic!”  Allyson Phillips wrote Friday on Facebook after Biden mistakenly called her daughter “Lincoln” when challenged to say her name.

“If you are going to say her name (even when forced to do so) at least say the right name!" Phillips added.

The mispronunciation only added to the president’s awkward moment during Thursday’s address, which began when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene interrupted the speech to challenge Biden to say Riley’s name.

“Lincoln Riley!” Biden said. “An innocent young woman who was killed by an illegal. That’s right,” Biden responded. “But how many of the thousands of people being killed by illegals? To her parents, I say, my heart goes out to you having lost children myself. I understand.”

Biden also faced criticism for comparing Riley’s murder  to the death of his own son, Beau Biden, to cancer.
He also got skewered on the left for calling the Venezuelan illegal alien charged with murdering Riley an “illegal,” an accurate term that progressives find offensive for those who illegally cross the border.
“As a proud immigrant, I'm extremely disappointed to hear President Biden use the word 'illegal,'” Rep. Chuy Garcia, D-I’ll., wrote on X.
