Amazing. The United States is supposed to be the rollicking democracy while the British are all uptight, right? Meantime, they’re getting their questions answered and U.S. reporters are left dealing with a president who either has no answers or doesn’t want to give them.
According to Fox News:
President Joe Biden declined to call on U.S. reporters Tuesday after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson took questions from reporters from the United Kingdom during an Oval Office meeting.
“Would it be okay if we have just a couple of questions, just a couple?” Johnson asked, looking over to Biden, who replied, “Good luck.”
After Johnson had taken several questions from British reporters, the press pool was then corraled out of the Oval Office while Johnson was mid-sentence, prompting a flurry of shouted questions from reporters. Biden appeared to respond to one of them about the border, but his answer was muffled by his mask and the commotion.
Biden appeared to briefly answer one shouted question as the pool exited, saying, “The violence is unacceptable.” It is not clear what the question was.
