“Biden goes to church and walks through a graveyard in Wilmington as his legislative agenda in dying in Washington,” Linksky tweeted. After a flurry of criticism and outrage, Linsky deleted the tweet. 

She mentioned, “I deleted an earlier tweet, which was not intended to cause offense.” 

Tech journalist, Ed Bott, responded by asking Linsky if she is “incapable of actually apologizing.”

The Washington Post reporter later tweeted an addendum. She mentioned, “It was a badly conceived and insensitive tweet. I’m sorry.”

Biden was traveled to Wilmington, Delaware, this weekend, the place he attended a Catholic church adjoining to the cemetery.

When Biden was elected to the Senate in 1972, a car crash killed his spouse, Neilia Hunter, and toddler daughter. They have been pronounced useless on arrival at Wilmington General Hospital. His sons have been injured within the crash; Hunter had a cranium fracture and Beau had a leg fracture. Beau later died in 2015 of mind most cancers. All three are buried within the cemetery, which Biden commonly visits. 

Many criticized Linskey for what one referred to as a “disrespectful tweet.”

Jon Cooper, a Biden supporter and former marketing campaign chair for Barack Obama, mentioned, “You can delete this disrespectful tweet … but the damage was done.”

“You must have known that Joe Biden’s late son, wife and daughter are all buried in that cemetery. You owe Joe an apology.” 

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was killed within the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School capturing, mentioned, “I am someone who visits a cemetery to see my murdered daughter. I AM OFFENDED & PISSED. What part of you thought this was ok?”

Margaret Larson, a former NBC journalist, mentioned {that a} “correction” was so as. 

“You were too busy carrying water for the progressive agenda instead of actually thinking about the content of your tweet,” lawyer Elliott Hamilton mentioned.
