Democrat Joe Biden was assisted by technology on Wednesday, when his feed was cut, allowing him to make a semi graceful-looking exit and giving him an excuse for not answering questions after reading prepared statements to Democrat lawmakers and media.
“The 46th president has yet to hold a formal press conference seven weeks after taking office,” Fox News reported.
“The president of the United States has to ask someone else if he is allowed to take questions, and before he can finish asking, they cut the feed. This is what real leadership looks like, folks. 80 million people voted for this guy,” one political watcher wrote in reaction.
Up until that time, it had been 43 days since Biden had made an unaccompanied press appearance, away from a handler or his wife.
“Accompanied by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. And the House Democratic Caucus, Biden addressed lawmakers on the topics of COVID relief and the ongoing vaccine rollout. He closed his remarks by calling on Democrats to help “restore faith” in government.,” Fox News reported about the Biden appearance.
In fact, Pelosi laughed at Biden’s behavior during the event:
Biden offers to take questions. “If that’s what I’m supposed to do.”
Pelosi laughed and probably signaled to cut the feed.

The First on TV reported on the strange behavior by Biden. The video is from a public live streaming event that was basically a Democrat Party zoom “conference” to media and lawmakers.
“Thank you, Thank you. I am happy to take questions now, Nanc, if that is what I am supposed to do, I am here to do whatever you want me to do,” Biden is heard saying.
Then the feed goes dead.

“The president appeared to look off-camera for direction before his image was replaced with a graphic of the White House. His final comment was deleted from the video of the event posted on the White House YouTube page.
Breitbart News reported Biden has not held a solo press conference in the 42 days he has been president, breaking a 100-year record.
CNN’s Jake Tapper wrote on Twitter that Biden’s “15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office.”
.@Kevinliptakcnn notes that an analysis of the past 100 years shows President Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Biden has not and it’s day 42.

Last week, Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Biden would hold a press conference at some point, but it would not be this week,” Breitbart News reported.
There are many questions about Biden’s behavior and mental status, and legal status as President. Other concerning factors are alarming to the American people, like the military presence at the White House while Biden is there, and the White House has odd responses that don’t answer people’s concerns.
There is something extraordinary going on:

“The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment,” Fox reported.
“While Biden was poised to take questions from lawmakers, the president faced growing criticism for not holding a formal press conference in the six weeks since taking office. The rare instances where Biden does take questions are often limited to queries from pre-selected reporters,” a political watcher on Twitter pointed out.
