President Joe Biden sparked mockery when he said during Tuesday night’s CNN town hall event that he loves “kids better than people.”

“Signing off with a final notable quote from Joe Biden during his town hall this evening: ‘Everyone knows I love kids better than people,’” wrote Kayleigh McEnany, former White House press secretary for President Donald Trump.

The post went viral online, racking up nearly 50,000 “likes” by Wednesday morning.

Biden made the comment when speaking to host Anderson Cooper about his new baby.

Watch:

Biden, however, is not a friend to unborn children with his support for pro-abortion policies. On Tuesday, for example, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to say if the Biden administration would violate the Hyde Amendment. The amendment, in theory, protects pro-life American taxpayers from funding abortion.

The Daily Wire reported:

“We know where President Biden stands on Hyde Amendment,” [EWTN reporter Owen] Jensen said. “But that being said, can this administration right now guarantee if the American rescue plan is passed that no taxpayer dollars will go to the abortion industry?” …

“Well, the president’s view on the Hyde Amendment is well known as you have stated in your question,” Psaki responded. “He also believes that community health centers are a key part of addressing the pandemic of ensuring that people and communities have access to vaccines, have access to treatment and information about making sure they’re healthy and their loved ones are healthy. So that remains a priority to the president. He’s shared his view on the Hyde Amendment. I don’t think I have anything for you.”

“If I can follow up on that, can you guarantee Americans who don’t want their tax dollars, pro-life Americans who don’t want their tax dollars funding abortion, can the administration guarantee those taxpayer dollars won’t go to the abortion industry?” Jensen pressed.

“Well, I think, Owen, as I’ve just noted, three quarters of the public supports the components of the package, wants to see the pandemic get under control, wants to see people put back to work, vaccines in arms,” she responded. “So I think that answers your question. Okay, we’re gonna move on.”
