Watch: Biden jokes about ‘hot ground’ after Maui wildfires

President Joe Biden wallowed in the aftermath of the Maui wildfires, where he appeared to joke about the “hot ground.”

The moment came on Monday when the President mingled with a first responder, causing laughter from those nearby.

“Did you catch the boots out here? That's hot ground man,” he joked.

In another moment, the President addressed the victims of the Maui wildfires and tried to engage with them, citing a fire his home suffered in 2004.

“I don't want to compare difficulties, but we, Jill and I, have a little sense of what it's like to lose a home,” he said.

Biden said he almost “lost my wife, my '67 Corvette and my cat.”

The President took the moment to commend the firefighters for their bravery.

According to a 2004 report report According to, the fire at the Biden residence was contained all the way to the kitchen:

Lightning struck Senator Joseph Biden's home, starting a small fire that extended into the kitchen.

No one was injured in Sunday's fire, which broke out amid a storm that caused severe flooding in Pennsylvania and knocked out hundreds of homes and businesses in Delaware.

When firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke billowing from the house but were able to stop the flames from spreading beyond the kitchen, said Cranston Heights Fire Company chief George Lamborn.

The President arrived in Maui after 13 days to assess the damage from the wildfires.

“The country mourns with you, stands by your side and will do whatever it takes to help you recover, rebuild and respect culture and traditions,” Biden said.

An estimated 480 people died in the fire disaster and more than 800 are still missing. Hawaii's governor Josh Green (D) said on Sunday that the majority of the missing are likely to be children.
