Today, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited the White House to discuss pressing matters such as “climate change,” transport infrastructure, and lifting the ban on British beef.
Ok, so the middle one is important. Either way, at least the Prime Minister had the guts to take questions from the press pool. Meanwhile, our president merely wished Johnson good luck.
After BoJo answered a few questions, Biden’s handlers rushed the press out of there like the White House had just gone up in flames. But that’s nothing new from the Administration dedicated to keeping the Chief Idiot out of the news cycles.

White House Correspondents Association President Steve Portnoy informed his colleagues that following the press event, the entire pool went to White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s office to “register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office.”
The press pool was also upset that press wranglers shouted so loud, demanding that reporters leave, that no one could hear Biden’s attempted response to a question from a reporter about the border.
“Psaki was unaware that the incident had occurred, and suggested that she was not in position to offer an immediate solution,” Portnoy wrote.
What’s funny is that Biden’s handlers do this so often, yet reporters continue to act surprised. It’s as if they think any day now, he’ll grow a brain.
Not too long ago, the old demented clown wandered off stage during the middle of his own wife’s speech. We wondered if his watch went off, and reminded him of the ever-approaching nap time.
Recently, they even cut Biden’s feed to keep him from talking to the people.
During a visit to Idaho, Biden was briefed on the wildfires plaguing several states out west. That’s where his inability to process information turned into a laughing stock.
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.
This isn’t the first time the White House intervened in blocking Biden from being heard by the general public. Last month, the president’s audio feed was cut as he was about to respond to a reporter’s question on his administration’s military withdrawal deadline from Afghanistan.
In March, the White House cut the feed as Biden said he was “happy to take questions” while speaking to Democratic lawmakers at a virtual event.
This latest incident comes just days after Politico reported how White House staffers will “either mute [Biden] or turn off his remarks” out of “anxiety” that he will veer away from “the West Wing’s carefully orchestrated messaging.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki previously admitted during an interview that Biden is often advised by her staff not to take questions.
Biden raised eyebrows last week when he told a crowd, “I‘m supposed to stop and walk out of the room” at a White House event following his prepared remarks.
In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, the madness in the Oval Office is a real sh*t show. I’m surprised the President isn’t sporting a round red nose and size 35 bright red shoes. And while we’ve gotten used to being embarrassed by our own President, there’s just something extra humiliating when it involves citizens from around the world.
However, I like to look at life as if the glass is half full. To that effect, I guess we’re lucky Biden’s people are willing to cut the feed. Some things are so bad, we just don’t need to see them.
