Joe Biden’s Public Appearances With World Leaders Just Keep Getting More Embarrassing
“The Indian press is much better-behaved than the American press,” Biden told Indian PM Narendra Modi at their Friday meeting. “I think, with your permission, you could not answer questions because they won’t ask any questions on point.”
Last month, one of the more embarrassing moments of Joe Biden’s presidency was caught on tape for the world to see.
Biden, who was meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett to “reaffirm the historic partnership between the United States and Israel,” appeared to doze off at one point while Bennett was speaking, as we previously reported.
For those who missed it, here’s what happened:

Democrat apologists masquerading as fact-checkers had a field day playing word games in the aftermath in trying to convince people that what they saw in the video clips that circulated was misleading because Biden had been “alert in the beginning of the meeting.”
Unfortunately, two press sprays just last week involving Biden and other world leaders sitting and chatting in the Oval Office show that his public appearances with them are not getting any better. In fact, they are getting worse.
On Tuesday, Biden sat down with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. During their symbolic appearance together at the Oval Office, Johnson took questions from the UK press corps. But before Johnson could finish his answer, he was interrupted as Biden’s handlers could be heard in the background already beginning to yell at and herd the White House press corps out of the room in a scene we’ve become all too familiar with over the last two years, first with Biden’s campaign and now his presidency:

IN THE OVAL OFFICE… @POTUS Biden and British PM @BorisJohnson meet to discuss pandemic, trade and other issues. Johnson took 3 questions. White House aides shouted down U.S. attempts to ask questions. I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn’t decipher what he said. pic.twitter.com/A86kgdfsuc

The incident infuriated some reporters, who immediately went to press secretary Jen Psaki’s office to file a formal complaint:
CBS News Radio White House correspondent Steven Portnoy reported that the members of the editorial pool immediately went to Psaki’s office to complain “that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office” as well as that the shouting wranglers had prevented anyone from understanding the answer to O’Keefe’s question.
Incredibly, when asked about the incident during Wednesday’s press briefing, Psaki blamed . . . Johnson:

On Friday, Biden met with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and as they sat down to talk, Biden told Modi that the Indian press corps was “much better behaved than the American press” and proceeded to urge him to not take questions “because they won’t ask any questions on point”:

Clearly, Biden had been instructed by his handlers to avoid a repeat of what happened during his appearance with Johnson by advising Modi to avoid taking questions altogether.
As the Daily Wire noted, Biden’s comments chastising the U.S. press in front of another world leader for not being well-behaved did not appear in the official White House transcript.
In addition to these awkward and humiliating moments, earlier this month, Biden caused an international stir when he seemed to forget Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s name during a virtual press event in the East Room of the White House involving the two as well as Johnson, at one point referring to Morrison as “that fella from down under” after he had just thanked Johnson by name.
“Thank you, Boris. And I want to thank that fella down under. Thank you very much, pal. Appreciate it, Mr. Prime Minister,” Biden said to Morrison, smiling as he turned back to face the camera to finish the remainder of his prepared remarks:
At the announcement of a joint deal with the U.K. and Australia on advanced defense tech sharing, President Biden doesn't mention Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison by name, instead saying "I want to thank that fellow 'down under.' Thank you very much, pal." pic.twitter.com/4bakPVSdQ7

The foreign press covered Biden’s “fella down under” blunder extensively. U.S. coverage, on the other hand, was predictably muted.
Anytime you watch the clips of either Biden’s team shooing off the press or Biden himself turning his nose up at them, remember this is the same guy who promised during his campaign to rebuild the relationship between the White House and the media after four years of Trump’s contentious relationship with the press, which to those of us in the cheap seats meant time for things to get back to the “normal” way of journalists doing pillow plumping for a Democratic administration.
One big difference between Trump’s style and Biden’s style, of course, is that even though Trump was obviously no fan of the liberally-biased members of the White House press corps, he still took questions from them, an inconvenient fact but a fact nevertheless.

Antihistamines and azithromycin as a treatment for COVID-19 on primary health care – A retrospective observational study in elderly patients
By the end of June, 100% of the residents had positive serology for COVID-19. Although clinical trials are needed to determine the efficacy of both drugs in the treatment of COVID-19, this analysis suggests that primary care diagnosis and treatment with antihistamines, plus azithromycin in selected cases, may treat COVID-19 and prevent progression to severe disease in elderly patients.
Affordable, safe, effective… without the toxic residue of shared responsibility, “burdens”, and “heroes” with novel apologies.
Sooo…are we still pretending this guy won the election? Or that the election wasn’t critically compromised?
His handlers are pretending he has a functioning neocortex. The rest of us are curious about what a governmentless America will ultimately look like.
Just look out the window.
I did, but I can’t see nothing. Thousands of Hatians are blocking my view.
Here, it’s Afghans. All that barking, molted fur everywhere….
Well, when you have a mentally impaired individual trying to fill a position they are not capable of it’s no surprise that it leads to embarrassment. But the solution to the problem is not surprising. It’s quite simple and everyone knows what it is.
As these Marxists continue to fray in the face of all the facts parading around out in the open, Pelosi apparently has promised to make this week a week to remember. I’m expecting a flood of acts of desperation.
I know this is heresy but…. do you think that maybe we are winning? On all fronts, the entire world (even us to a growing extent) are seeing proof that these boobs are no only incompetent liars but outright evil. The walls are crumbling and there stands a triumphant Trump in Georgia rallying the troops for what is coming.
I’ve been paying close attention to everything China-related for the past 2-3 weeks and it is astonishing how their “belt and road” empire is evaporating. It is toppling the “new world order” in a big way and we aren’t even reporting it in this country.
I think the tide has turned and as frightening as the events heading our way will be, it marks the beginning of how the world will ultimately prevail of this China-led Marxist attempt to take over the world.
Here is a guy who gets it:
I don’t pay much attention to what people say. I pay attention to what they do and how big money responds. That is what I do for a living. To me, it looks like big events are heading our way soon.
Yes. They are getting desperate. We are expected to just surrender but that is not going as well as expected. Hang on.
Gonna get nasty. Think they will just give up?
Of course not.
But it’s always nice when your enemies are willing to show themselves.
Biden was installed so people would assign the destruction of the USA to incompetency rather than planned betrayal. He will be replaced when the puppeteers decide it is time to move to the next phase of control.
His incompetency and mental deficiency are useful features to his handlers.
If I was in charge of Biden, I would prefer him asleep rather that actively talking to other world leaders.
Well, if you remember they tried having Harris talking/consulting with other world leaders and that didn’t go over well. There were too many questions as to why she was doing the talking with world leaders and not Biden. So I’d say they’re pretty much stuck with Joe at the press conferences and consultations until he can be replaced.
“Grave assault on press freedoms by President Biden as he insults the entire US media in front of India’s Prime Minister Modi.”
Aw! Journo tears!
Did they think that if they kept petting the bear, it wouldn’t bite them?
You will notice that the only ones speaking up are not the bought and paid for puppets.
That’s because the puppets only ask questions when they are given a card by Jen Psaki with the question on it.
Just like their role models in the Soviet Union, the people actually running the Biden* junta will soon pull a Konstantin Chernenko and make him disappear from public view for weeks (perhaps months) at a time.
And just like in the Soviet Union, the jockeying for who would succeed Biden* began even before they finished counting the fake ballots last fall.
This is fascist. And I doubt it’s an error. I do believe they’re trying to redo the Holocaust.
President Biden has named his pick for the head of Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and, if confirmed, big banks and digital asset firms are in for a rude awakening.
The White House announced the nomination of Saule Omarova, a professor at Cornell Law School, on Thursday. Omarova has said she wants to “end banking as we know it,” including greater government oversight of Wall Street and cryptocurrencies.
Omarova has also said that consumer deposits should be moved into digital-dollar accounts at the Fed, hinting at the need for a central bank-backed digital currency.
I seriously doubt the big banks are going to lose even a penny over this. Time and time again the Communists promise to “soak the rich” or “make corporations pay their fair share”, yet the ultra wealthy and big corporations do very well under Communist administrations.
Consolidating power and wealth in the hands of the privileged few is what Communist regimes do.
The Weekend at Bernies presidency.
Except, I’d submit that Bernie Lomax in “Weekend at Bernie’s” possessed more vigor and vitality, and greater cognitive function, than dotard Xi-den on his best days.
I unintentionally chanced upon a recent USA Today opinion piece written by some harridan crone, alleging that for Republicans to even pose questions and to give scrutiny — totally legitimate, from any rational perspective — regarding dotard Xi-den’s glaring and utterly transparent dotage, undeniable cognitive impairments and obvious mental and physical decline, is an attack on senior citizens, at-large. Just totally idiotic rubbish, but, typical of the delusional propaganda being put out by the Dhimmi-crat media prostitutes, who are predictably and dutifully carrying water for their Dhimmi-crat masters, 24/7.
Xi-den is the moder-day stand-in for the Emperor in Hans Christian Anderson’s fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” All the subjects and courtiers are supposed to walk around, pretending that Chairman Xi-den isn’t five cans short of a six-pack.
Recalling the old Dick Clark American Bandstand audience rating of songs–“FJB–I’d give it a 7, it’s got a catchy tune and you can dance to it.” And boy were they dancing to that tune in college stadiums around the country on Saturday.
We should begin alternating the FJB chant with, “Blow! Dart! Blow! Dart! Blow! Dart! Blow! Dart!”
Let’s not forget the time a few months back when the Japenese (I think) Prime Minister showed up at the White House and Biden was nowhere to be found. A few hours later, Kamala welcomed him. The media ran cover for him on that one too.
I hear that Joe was running after an ambulance, siren blaring. He got tired, stopped, and told his SS people that maybe he’d skip buying ice cream today.
