Biden criticized for 'tone-deaf' remark comparing Hawaii wildfires to almost losing his Corvette

Biden traveled to Hawaii earlier this week, nearly two weeks after wildfires broke out in Maui County that have caused 115 confirmed fatalities as of Tuesday. The latest update by Maui County Tuesday reveals that the Olinda and Kula fires are 85% contained after burning a combined 1,283 acres, while the Lahaina fire is 90% contained after damaging about 2,170 acres. According to county officials, between 1,000 and 1,100 people remain unaccounted for as the search for survivors continues.
