Remarkable: Joe Biden’s Handlers Conducted Twitter Fact Checks on Him During CNN Town Hall Event

Remarkable: Joe Biden’s Handlers Conducted Twitter Fact Checks on Him During CNN Town Hall Event

President Biden’s third CNN “town hall” was so disastrous that his handlers were frantically issuing corrections on Twitter to reporters in real-time

President Joe Biden appeared Thursday night for what was his third CNN town hall appearance in a year’s time.

Held in Baltimore and moderated by noted Democrat apologist and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, as per the norm it was a disastrous affair with Biden at times weirdly whispering answers, making a preposterous claim about a “border visit” that never happened, and then quite literally mocking the concept of freedom at another point during the invitation-only (read: highly scripted) Q&A.

But in a remarkable series of events that may very well be a first in the history of social media as well as presidential history, Biden’s infamously aggressive handlers were actually issuing corrections and clarifications in real-time to some of the claims he made, sending messages to various reporters who would then repost or paraphrase to Twitter what they’d been told by the handler.

For instance, PBS NewsHour White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor wrote a tweet recapping Biden’s statement about using the National Guard to help with the supply chain crisis:

She received an email from a “White House official” not long after that provided a pretty big clarification to Biden’s comments:

In another example, Bloomberg News White House reporter Josh Wingrove noted he had received “some clarity” from a “White House official” on Biden’s statement about raising the corporate and personal tax rates:

Wingrove himself helpfully assisted both Biden and the “official” by noting his “response could be read either way”:

And after Voice of America reporter Steve Herman tweeted Biden’s answer to a question from an invited audience member about defending Taiwan if need be from a China attack . . .

…Politico national security reporter Alex Ward shared a very important update from a “WH spox”:

Screengrabs have been snagged for posterity’s sake:

Without getting into whether or not their fact checks were accurate, it was pretty amazing and – again – likely unprecedented to see this happen to a sitting U.S. President by his own team.

What they did not correct/clarify but should have in the interest of not embarrassing the POTUS even more than he was already embarrassing himself was Biden’s answer to Cooper’s question as to if he planned on visiting the southern border to see the crisis first hand. Let’s take a look at Biden’s answer first, and then White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s hilarious attempt on Friday to bolster the lie:

“I’ve been there before and I haven’t – I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But the whole point of it is I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down. I’ve been spending time going around looking at the $900 billion worth of damage done by – by hurricanes and floods and weather and traveling around the world.”

As it turns out, that “visit” was a 2008 drive-by where he passed by the border on the way to a campaign stop. When Psaki was asked about it by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy Friday, the most amazing answer was given:

Needless to say, a 2008 “drive-through” by then-VP nominee Joe Biden does not constitute expertise and knowledge about the border situation even then, let alone the current crisis, the blame for which can be laid squarely at the feet of Joe Biden himself. This was like suggesting a random bicycling tourist riding past the White House made one a respected, sought-after presidential historian. Just crazy stuff, insulting to everyone’s intelligence, really.

Biden’s tendency to, shall we say “stray from the facts” Thursday night had this Twitter user weighing in with the following observation:

The answer, of course, is “yes” – to both. On the other hand, the only questions left at this point are:

Just who the heck is running this country? Joe Biden or his handlers? It’s safe to say that either way, we’re screwed.

Puppets aren’t a perfect answer, their mouth hinges eventually get weak.

“I’ve been there before and I haven’t – I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But the whole point of it is I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down.

Why are you wasting your time visiting damage that wasn’t your fault and you can’t do anything about anyway, when there’s so much damage to the US that YOU caused and YOU could fix!

Can’t be too careful when your guy is a mental patient and everything you are doing is a theater production much like Alec Baldwin was working on before it blew up in his face. Sooner or later one of the props will fail you.

Does this administration ever do anything on the up and up?
The most fake administration ever.

Biden is out there to pass along messages from handlers, and to be a little (but not blatantly) obvious about it. The plan is to get America to accept the deep state as president.

Safe bet: Fuehrer Joey Gill’s rare public appearances will get…rarer.

Obama is behind it and Susan Rice is the main instigator on staff. Behind the scenes, it’s going to be Valarie Jarret and Obama.
Thanks, Stacy (Sister Toldjah) for another great story.

“The administration is hoping to get enough truckers to help with the gridlock”

How does the administration propose to do that, when the reason we don’t have enough truckers is California law?

    They have an answer for that.
    The new truckers are all going to be illegals.
    Laws don’t apply to them.
    Problem solved.
