The serious mental decline of Joe Biden, who still has three years to go as US President, is becoming more and more obvious.
Sky News host James Morrow calimed that “something was up” with Biden following his recent meeting with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the White House.
Biden didn’t take any questions, though Boris Johnson did before questions towards the President were shut down.
“I just worry that there’s more than just him not being good on his feet,” Mr Morrow told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“That there’s more worry about embarrassment and other issues potentially with him that could be revealed by these sorts of questions.”
Nigel Farage (the former UK Brexit Party leader) also reacted to the meeting saying he ‘couldn’t believe that Biden was ‘not allowed’ to answer questions
White House reporters have launched a formal objection after the President refused, or wasn’t allowed, to take any questions during the meeting.
Sky News Australia reports: Prime Minister Johnson took three questions from the traveling press pack, but the White House stepped in to stop President Biden taking any questions from reporters who had gathered to watch the two leaders meet in the Oval office.
Many reporters criticized the Biden administration for its lack of transparency.
“Worth noting that Biden ran an office promising to restore democracy after 4 years of Trump,” Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker wrote on Twitter.
“But today it was the British leader, NOT the American one, who spotlighted the key tenet of a flourishing democracy — respect for a free press — by taking questions from his press corps.”
White House Correspondents’ Association President Steven Portnoy said in a statement that he filed a formal complaint over President Biden’s refusal to take any questions to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
“The entire editorial component of the US pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that in the American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office, and that wranglers loudly shouted over the president as he seemed to give an answer to Ed O’Keefe’s question about the situation at the Southern Border,” the statement said.
