Recently, President Biden was called out online for appearing to read an answer to a reporter straight from a document on his podium.  This has created skepticism that Biden’s Q&A sessions with the press are staged, where reporters are preselected, and his responses are predetermined.

The incident began when Biden asked a reporter to repeat her question, which pertained to whether his administration would increase its contribution to programs at the World Bank to improve access to capital in developing countries.

“Sorry, I’m saying Africa is asking America to lead the way and double its contribution to the World Bank’s international development assistance to help developing countries to access financing to alleviate debt distress, and to tackle climate change. What is your commitment on this?” the reporter asked President Biden.

The president answered the question on America’s commitment to the World Bank initiative while staring down at his podium for nearly the entire duration of the response, presumably reading from pre-written notes.

“We made a major commitment to this. Number one, we said the United States has long championed international financial institutions that provide low cost concessional resources to the poorest developing countries, including from the IMF. To that end my administration helped design and establish the IMF’s new initiative that provides low cost funding for countries that are taking steps to enhance their resilience.”

“Important partners in Africa have the capital … they need to invest in their futures. We heard them and we stand with them now. That’s why we work with Congress to enable the United States to make available in the coming weeks, up to $21 billion of new lending resources to the IMF trust fund that provides concessional lending to the poorest countries. So little like you know, having a go when you’re in debt and having to go and find someone to help you out. That’s what this is about. We believe supporting friends and this partnership is happy. We’re happy to do our part,” he concluded.

This recent press incident has only fueled ongoing speculation that Biden is not fit to serve as President of the United States.  As the country’s most forward-facing leader, voters would expect the commander-in-chief to inspire confidence in his public speaking engagements.  Many have pointed out that Biden moments, such as this one, have dire implications for how the country is viewed both domestically and internationally.  Watch the clip below:

RNC research commented on the video, “A reporter is forced to repeat her question for Biden, who proceeds to read his entire answer from pre-written notes in his binder. Very sad!”  Another user added, “The debates will be the same way. Only Biden already given answers so he has time to memorize them and not read them.”

One person speculated, “So he’s getting questions in advance and the handlers are preparing the answers for him to read at the podium.”  Another account suggested, “The fact that reporters went along with this staged Q&A tells us we can’t trust legacy media at all.”
