Often Joe Biden does not appear in control of his mental faculties.
And that leads to questions about who is in control at the White House.
Now a Senator asked one question about Joe Biden that revealed who was really in charge.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Biden administration’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Idaho Republican Senator Jim Risch used his time to grill Blinken about reports that someone at the White House cut off the camera feed when Joe Biden speaks at public events.
“Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and stop the president, cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” Risch asked Blinken.
Blinken claimed Biden speaks for himself and no one was in control of censoring the President.
Risch strongly disagreed.
“This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions,” Risch shot back.
Risch’s line of questioning came after a curious event where Biden appeared in Idaho where the White House cut off the livestream feed of a briefing Biden received about forest fires.
Biden said during the briefing he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters. Biden asked Geissler if he could ask him a question, and Geissler replied “of course.”
Biden then said, “One of the things that I’ve been working on with some others is —,” before his feed was cut. It was then replaced by a full-screen graphic saying, “Thank you for watching.”
This strange episode came on the heels of reporting in POLITICO that Biden’s staff puts the TV on mute when Biden speaks in public because staffers don’t want to hear the tangents Biden might drift off onto.
This reporting led to new questions about if Biden was mentally fit to serve as President due to cognitive decline.
And if even the White House staff is censoring the President many Americans are wondering how Biden can continue to serve as President.
But more importantly, if someone in the White House has the power to hit “the dump switch” and muzzle a U.S. President, the American people deserve to know who’s really running things in the Biden administration.
