President Joe Biden found himself at the center of attention after an unexpected moment during a live TV broadcast when he stood up and left the studio while cameras were still rolling. Here’s what happened.
President Joe Biden, 80, appeared on MSNBC for an interview with Nicolle Wallace.
They discussed several topics, including the Supreme Court’s affirmative action decision and January 6th, and his predecessor, Donald Trump.
The Unexpected Walk Off
After nearly 20 minutes of questions, President Biden stood up from his seat, shook Wallace’s hand, and walked off the set while she was offering a preview of the next segment of her show.
Viewers Were Surprised
The incident surprised viewers as the cameras continued to film his departure. The momentary exit prompted varied reactions.
Andrew Bates, Biden’s White House deputy press secretary, referred to it as a “power move,” implying that the president intended to leave a lasting impression.
It Was Bizarre
On the other hand, Jason Miller, a former campaign aide to Donald Trump, called it “bizarre” and criticized the interview for not addressing specific topics like Biden’s son Hunter’s business dealings or his health.
Many Questioned the Interviewer
Some questioned Wallace’s decision not to ask about these issues, given her experience in political journalism.
This Is Not the First Time
The recent incident adds to a list of notable gaffes made by President Biden.
He mistakenly referred to Rishi Sunak as “Mr. President,” ended a speech with “God save the Queen,” and even asked about a deceased congresswoman.
While the incident itself may seem trivial, it fuels ongoing debates about Biden’s ability to lead effectively.
Maybe It’s the Presidential Pressure?
Critics argue that his gaffes and unscripted moments raise doubts about his mental acuity and ability to handle the pressures of the presidency.
These Incidents Don’t Mean Anything?
On the other hand, supporters argue that these incidents are minor and do not overshadow his policy agenda and accomplishments.
Is He Losing His Faculties?
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
A Twitter user wrote, “Here’s the thing, if he genuinely is “losing his faculties,” then he should be being supported and gently encouraged to step down.”
The President Must Step Down?
Another user commented, “That’s sad, it happens to lots of people but they aren’t running a country. Really must step down.”
Watch the Way He Walks
One Twitter user added, “If you watch the way Joe Biden walks, it’s very similar to what you would see among patients in a psychiatric ward, who use drugs to keep them calm.”
