Mainstream media outlets tend to be deferential to the Democrat Party, but even they can no longer ignore the fact that there is something seriously wrong with Joe Biden.
In the most recent incident, the acting president sat with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson while the PM talked to members of the UK media. When U.S. media outlets tried to ask their president questions, his handlers rushed him out of the room while yelling at reporters to get out. The move has led to the press pool of White House reporters launching a formal objection.
In response to the uproar, Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to blame the incident on Johnson, stating that he did not inform the White House that he intended to answer press questions. Put simply, President Biden had not been prepared by his handlers to answer questions, and so it was PM Johnson who was to blame for giving the press the impression that they could ask questions. The implication shows everything that is wrong with the way the White House has handled the media since Biden took office.
Former President Trump continually answered questions while he was in office, sometimes even before they were asked, both in-person and via his social media channels. President Biden, on the other hand, has to be told who to call on, what to say, and when to say it. When he steps out of line, as he tried to do during his meeting with PM Boris Johnson, his handlers start yelling and shooing reporters out of the room. How this can be considered “normal” is beyond belief.
Even with all of this, some mainstream news outlets have continued to criticize anyone who questions the president’s ability to speak to people without help. When Republican Senator James Risch asked Secretary of State Anthony Blinken why staffers cut President Biden’s feed on two separate occasions, the notion that the president’s staffers would do such a thing was dismissed by leftists as “bizarre” and “absurd.”
The President of the United States is clearly being micromanaged. Handlers ejected reporters from his conference with Johnson because the acting president simply can’t interact with the media without a lot of prep time The man is doddering, and he just isn’t with us — and they don’t want us to see it. But, we do see it — no amount of censorship is going to stop that now. That cat has been out of the bag since day one.
We can only hope that we’ll be able to mend our relationship with our allies once someone capable of constructing a sentence in a sentient manner returns to the White House. Until then, all bets are off.
