In the latest bit of buffoonery from the White House administration, President Joe Biden was cut off during his briefing yesterday after he went off script.
That’s right, apparently the President of the United States isn’t allowed to give his own thoughts. Someone else behind the scenes is running the show.
Biden was in Boise, Idaho giving a briefing on the wildfires that have ravaged through the west before he attempted to ask George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters a question.
Biden said 13 words before the White House cut off the livestream. Just take a look for yourself.
What a damning thing to do, and this is not the first time this has happened. Biden was also cut off during a speech in Aug. when he tried to give closing remarks.
This hasn’t gone unnoticed by Republicans, who have already addressed it this morning at the Afghanistan hearing in the Senate. Rhode Island senator James Risch straight up asked Secretary of State Anthony Blinken the identity of the person making the executive decisions in the White House. In other words, who is “pushing the button”? Blinken could only smirk and chuckle before saying that “there’s no such person.”
Blinken and this administration have been caught red-handed, but we all know how this story will play out. Biden will continue to ignore questions from the media and be cut off mid-sentence when the powers that be say so. And they’ll face no consequences for doing so.
But we were told that Donald Trump was a threat to the media. At least the media could do its job when he was President, something that Biden’s team prohibits from happening on a constant basis.
