Biden Hides From Media Questions: ‘I’ll Get In Trouble’

Last week, President Joe Biden fumbled for his microphone and said he feared being in trouble for fielding questions from reporters, which has further raised concerns about his mental acuity.

This incident occurred on March 7th, at the conclusion of a news conference hosted by the White House to announce the formation of the White House Competition Council, an initiative to address the rising cost of living.

After muttering something about questions, Biden took up the microphone and warned that he would face consequences if he started answering reporters’ questions.

A White House Press staffer was heard shooing away reporters who began yelling questions at Biden as he remained still, gazing across the room.

A former Democrat campaign consultant, Peter Daou, wrote on X that Biden was not well. Later, Daou posted a tweet with a clip of Joe Scarborough referring to it as the ‘best’ version of Joe Biden. Daou said that if someone was curious about what propaganda was, that was an example.

Biden reportedly told reporters in May 2021 that he wasn’t supposed to be fielding all these questions while then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki was on the job.

A month later, Biden told reporters that his staff would reprimand him for not conducting the press briefing correctly. After the briefing was over, Biden started to leave. When reporters yelled out questions, he stopped and said that he’d get into trouble, but he would answer them.

Psaki said at the time that when Biden is with the press, he accepts questions almost daily but they do not recommend him doing so. They often tell Biden not to take questions. However, he does what he wants.

Eighty-six percent of respondents to a poll conducted by ABC News and Ipsos said that President Joe Biden, who is 81 years old, is too elderly to serve another term in the White House.
