President Joe Biden was seen picking up a toy for the daughter of the late Capitol officer William Evans, and everyone is sharing their thoughts on what Trump would have done.
The video has left people in tears...
Barely 3 months after the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol...
A car came speeding onto Capitol grounds.
The man struck 2 officers nearby, killing officer William Evans and leaving another hospitalized.
Police fatally shot the attacker, twenty-five-year-old Noah Green.
This time, it wasn't down to an angry Trump mob, but a single man, armed with a knife...
Who had recently told friends he had left his job and had "afflictions," before setting off to kill.
"It is with a very, very heavy heart that I announce one of our officers has succumbed to his injuries," Yogananda D. Pittman, the acting Capitol Police chief, said during a news conference.
"This has been an extremely difficult time for U.S. Capitol Police, after the events of Jan. 6 and now the events that have occurred here today."
And now President Joe Biden has paid tribute to William "Billy" Evans during a ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda.
Evans served for eighteen years on the agency's First Responders Unit.
His body is lying in honor in the Rotunda, which is unheard of for a private citizen.
Biden said Evans was defined "by his dignity, his decency his loyalty, and his courage."
"He was the one who always kept his word," Biden said. "If he said he'd be there, he'd be there."
But it was what Biden did for Evan's daughter that got the internet all choked up...
A small moment of kindness showed Biden picking up a toy dropped by Evans' daughter during the ceremony.
While Nancy Pelosi was speaking, President Biden got out of his chair and returned the small toy to Abigail Evans.
It's really, really hard to get used to having a president who is genuinely a nice person again.— ChicaLoca (@HaschVivian) April 14, 2021
It makes me cry every single time. 😢
Immediately people were pointing out the difference between Biden and former president Trump...
My 8 yr old daughter just said, aww he's so sweet, Trump would have never did that, he'd probably kick the toy & get mad— Meidas•MightyCC (@c_ctweets) April 13, 2021
Donald Trump would have pocketed the toy on national television, then vigorously denied it when asked about it, then immediately demand an @FBI investigation into who leaked the video of him doing it.— Shoq (@Shoq) April 13, 2021
Each day that passes I am more encouraged by President Joe Biden. I am so proud to have his as my president. I take extra pride knowing I did everything I could to help get him elected. His compassion, courage, strength, steadfastness is exactly what America needed. My President!— Danielle Candela (@DanielleCandela) April 13, 2021
Former guy would have just walked right by it.— CW 🇺🇸🏳️🌈 (@CWDecember) April 13, 2021
Another moment of compassion from Joe Biden. I predict that he won't even brag about it the next time he is standing before the White House press.— Dr. Andy Jones (@andyojones) April 13, 2021
Whereas the former president would instead be hitting on the girl's mom.— Siracusa (@siracusa11) April 13, 2021
THIS IS WHEN I BEGAN TO CRY. Kindness displayed and not for a photo op. @POTUS is a kind man! RIP Officer Evans💔🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸— Peachykeen54🇺🇸 (@peachykeen54) April 13, 2021
I want Joe Biden to adopt me 🥰— 🌸Jacquie_RN 🩺🌸 🇨🇦 (@jacquie_rn) April 13, 2021
He has Empathy, something that was completely missing from the last guy.— Scott R 🏁 (@PorscheFanCO) April 13, 2021
"A greater compliment does no one have than the President of the United States looking after your toys," Pelosi said.
Biden then spoke in Evans' honor, channelling his own experience with grief...
"My prayer for all of you is that a day will come when you have that memory and you smile before you bring a tear to your eyes," he said.
"I promise you it's going to come. It just takes a while."
"Your son, your husband, your brother, your dad was a hero. And he's part of you. It's in your blood. My prayer for you is that moment of a smile comes before the tear, quicker, then longer."
Biden then concluded his speech...
