President Biden, who many believe is the leader of the free world, took ‘one last question’ from reporters at press event today. Then he added something that has many people scratching their heads.
“Will you make it faster for them to get the vaccine, the vaccines we will get soon?” a reporter asked.
“Say it again?” Biden asked.
“India. They are suffering at this moment.”
“I am sorry. Just… last question I will take,” Biden replied. “I’m really going to be in trouble,” he added. Watch below:
This isn’t the first time that Biden has alluded to handlers ‘allowing’ him to take questions.
“I’m happy to take questions if that’s what you — I’m supposed to do, Nance,” Biden said at a press event in March. “Whatever you want me to do.”
Also in March, Biden visited a hardware store in D.C., and his handlers preemptively shooed reporters away from him.
The optics of the President of the United States being ‘managed’ by his team, instead of the other way around, is not a good one.
