Biden Insults American Press and Shuts Down Indian PM From Taking Questions During Meeting

We’ve reported about how Joe Biden’s staff has gone to great lengths to prevent him from answering questions.

His meeting with U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the White House was a great example of this. Johnson took some questions from the British press. But as he was finishing up, the Biden staffers interrupted him, screaming at the top of their lungs at the press to get out, creating all kinds of chaos.


The press then filed a complaint with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. She basically treated them like dirt and like their objections meant nothing.

Then, when she was pressed on it the next day, she blamed Prime Minister Boris Johnson, saying he never should have taken questions, suggesting that he should have checked with them before taking any questions. Clearly, their aim is to control the narrative. They not only didn’t want Biden answering questions, they didn’t want Johnson to either, likely because then Biden’s failure not to becomes much more obvious.

So when they had a similar press spray today with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Biden announced upfront to Modi that he didn’t want him to take any questions. He also mocked the American press.

Biden said that the Indian press was much better behaved than the American press. “I’ve got to watch out,” Biden said. “I think, with your permission,” Biden said to Modi, “[if] you could not answer questions because they won’t ask any questions on point.” What a way to insult the press, but more importantly, once against trying to control another world leader because it would make Biden look bad if Modi took questions and Biden didn’t.


This is even after the press has already filed a complaint with Psaki about this kind of behavior of Biden and his staffers. This is even when he has most of the media in his pocket, yet it still isn’t enough for him. How sociopathic is that that he has to exert that level of control because there’s the possibility that someone might cover the negative things he says?

Talk about treating the press badly and trying to suppress them. And the press was disturbed about President Donald Trump, who was always answering their questions? Yet they will still fawn all over Biden and rush to protect him because of politics. He really could shoot one of them on 5th Avenue and they would still come to his defense. If Trump had said this, this would be the lead comment on every network with round-the-clock analysis. This comment from Biden? I doubt they will even mention it on any network apart from Fox.

That’s where we are at this point. There is no objective news.

On top of that, according to Breitbart’s White House correspondent Charlie Speiring, the White House removed those comments from the official White House transcript of the event.


Presto, chango, it never happened! Too bad we have the video.
