Meanwhile, 1000 protesters show up at a Biden event in Idaho.
The White House officials had to interceded cut the feed of Biden’s briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials.
During Monday’s visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west.
While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.
Can I ask you a question?” Biden asked.
“Of course,” Geissler responded.
“One of the things that I’ve been working on with some others is —” Biden said before being cut off mid-sentence.
The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

When he was lucid enough to talk, he pushed more climate change inanity and $15 minimum wage proposals.
“The reality is we have a global warming problem, a serious global warming problem, and it’s consequential, and what’s going to happen is things are not going to go back,” Biden said during the briefing.
The first president to officially visit the federal fire center, Biden also met briefly with first responders and an elite hot shot crew, where he reiterated calls to boost firefighter pay. The administration did recently implement bonuses for federal wildland firefighters but Biden said many still make only $15.00 an hour and put their lives on the line.
“You saved Lake Tahoe,” Biden said, referring to the massive Caldor Fire still burning out of control in California and Nevada.
Biden also used the wildfires, arguably caused by a combination of poor forest management practices and urban development, to press for his $3.5 trillion rebuilding plans.
But he was also greeted by a fair number of protesters In Idaho. Of course, I had to dig nearly all the way through an AP article to uncover this fascinating tidbit.
In deep-red Idaho, several opposing groups leveraged Biden’s visit as a way to show resistance to his administration. GOP gubernatorial candidates, an anti-vaccine organization and a far-right group were among those urging people to turn out against the president.
More than 1,000 protesters did so, gathering in Boise before Biden arrived to express displeasure with his coronavirus plan, the election and other issues.
Chris Burns, a 62-year-old from Boise, said, “I’m against everything Biden is for.” Burns was especially displeased with a sweeping new vaccine mandate for 100 million people that Biden announced last week. “He’s acting like a dictator,” Burns said.
This is what was waiting for Joe Biden in Idaho today; hundreds of Trump supporters 🙌🤣
“81 million votes” and not a single supporter of his showed up? Strange.pic.twitter.com/sZd6VUtOs6
