Joe's handlers do not allow him to answer questions without a script.

    THIS is the embarrassing moment Joe Biden's live feed was cut off by the White House after he offered to take questions from lawmakers.

    In the virtual event with the House Democratic Caucus on Wednesday, Biden closed his remarks by calling on Democrats to help "restore faith" in the government.

    "I'd be happy to take questions if that's what I'm supposed to do, Nance," Biden told the Speaker.

    "Whatever you want me to do."

    The livestream ended seconds later after a brief pause from Biden.

    Biden has increasingly come under fire for not holding a formal press conference and taking questions from reporters in the six weeks since taking office.

    The rare instances where the US president does take questions are often limited to a pool of pre-selected reporters.
    opinion: Most likely better to abruptly cut the live feed and keep people thinking you don't have the ability to answer non scripted question; than to keep it open and prove you can't.

    Oh if only that were the practice for Trump when he was President.

    I assumed you were referring to an actual press conference.
    Being virtual requires pre-planning and orchestrion of cameras and audio.

    Have you not been interviewed or had a broadcast show of your own?
    You should do that. We would all love to see you interview people
    and build a following.

    He has not answer unscripted question at either. In Fact has yet to hold a press conference.

    Answering questions in a virtual conference is not that difficult, you take the question - then answer them.

    How do you deduce Biden has handlers without recognizing Trump had the same? How do you accuse one of a lack of autonomy without realizing the other was on script?

    when one has not held a press conference and has to ask someone permission to answer questions is compared to another in the same position spending an average of 45 min with reporters answering questions almost every time he left to board marine one or Airforce one.

    You can come to the observation I stated.

    I seriousely doubt Trump had handlers, nothing to speak of anyway...he simply cannot be handled.

    Biden on the other hand, can be handled, he has to be in order to function, or to make president to begin with. I believe what the OP is saying about him.

    Biden is not real like Trump so how can we expect him to have any kind of real Q&A?

    I worried about Biden’s age. He should get time to fact check his statements. I heard his inauguration speech. He went on for sometime in a coherent manner. I liked to listen to him. I already knew we were not going to get a perfect president. We did not have a perfect president when Trump ruled either.

    I linked the article. It isn't a claim, nor something I need to prove - but it is there for you to read.

    Trump had advisors, like all presidents do, and he fired them left and right, which drew the expected sneers from his enemies. So "handlers" was not his problem. The standard griping was to the effect that Trump needed handlers, not the opposite.

    But with Biden, the evidence is quite different--and has been a subject of conversation by both media people and ordinary citizens since he declared his candidacy in 2020.

    Oh, I read it and it doesn't say that it's because of what Biden might do.

    hmmm -- if I was told that Biden was negotiating with someone for America - I would be more than a little worried.

    Looks to me like we have many of the same players from the Obama administration which causes me to think that just possibly Obama is the handler

    Unsurprisingly, the OP and his sources choose the least charitable take possible. Biden took questions, but the q&a session was never intended to be public. Most q&a sessions between the president and congress are not “open press.”
