(RepublicanInformer.com)- President Joe Biden once again indicated that he isn’t IN control of the White House or his own presidency, apologizing to journalists about not being able to take a question without getting in trouble
When a journalist asked President Biden about his conversation with the Prime Minister of India, he was slowly walking away from his lectern. But the president realized it was an important question and walked back to the lectern to answer it.
“I’m sorry, this is the last question I’m going to take…I’m really going to be in trouble,” the president said, without exactly explaining who he would be in trouble with.
Isn’t he…the president of the United States?
The journalist asked about the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases in India and whether the Biden administration is assisting in sending vaccines to the country to deal with the sudden uptick in the country of 1.36 billion people.
The president offered an answer, but it wasn’t particularly clear. Take a look at the video below and you’ll see for yourself. It lasted about one minute but you can see he’s struggling.
“We are sending the actual mechanical parts that are needed for the machinery they have to build a vaccine,” he said.

“We’re also discussing, I’ve discussed with him, when we’ll be able to send actual vaccines to India,” the president added.
Republican congressman for North Carolina’s 11th District Madison Cawthorn was one of several conservative voices expressing concern about the response on Twitter.
“Yesterday, Biden said he could only take one more question from the press because he’s “really gonna be in trouble.” Who is our President scared of that he refuses to give the American people transparency by answering questions?” he asked.

Commentator Caleb Hull also asked, “who is he in trouble with???”
Reporters just yelled questions at Biden as he was leaving. He wasn't planning on taking any and then he turned around:
"I’m sorry, this is the last question I will take. Then, I’m really going to be in trouble."

Is it White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki?
Or is it Vice President Kamala Harris?
Nobody really knows, but what we do know is that President Joe Biden isn’t so keen to answer questions, particularly without the help of a teleprompter…and this proved it once again.
