Incredible moment White House staff abruptly end Biden's rambling Vietnam press conference mid-sentence and cut his mic

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A sleepy  Joe Biden  saw his rambling Vietnam press conference brought to a sudden end on Sunday night with a mic cut and jazz music playing him off the stage, like he went too long in an awards speech.  

Biden was mid-flow and answering questions from journalists when he was interrupted and forced to shuffle away and head backstage. 

'We talked about stability, we talked about the Third World, excuse me, the Southern Hemisphere has access to change. It wasn't confrontational at all....' Biden said as he rambled on. 

Suddenly, the booming voice of his press secretary,  Karine Jean-Pierre , could be heard butting in.

'Thank you everybody. This ends the press conference. Thanks everyone,' she said as she brought the presser to a close. 








Moment Biden's mic is cut after gaffes and rambling during presser



All the while, Biden continued to speak, not realizing his mic had long since been muted. 

In another bizarre twist, sleepy jazz music then began to play over the loudspeaker, with the 80-year-old still seemingly trying to answer questions as he continued to speak into the microphone.

As the president tried to answer a few more questions, the music grew louder prompting Biden to put away his leather-backed folder and shuffle offstage, disappearing behind a black curtain. 

Earlier in the press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam, following the G20 summit in New Delhi, India,  Biden   risked upsetting his Vietnamese hosts with quotes from the   Robin Williams   movie Good Morning, Vietnam - which he seemed to think was a song.

The president arrived in the country after two days at the   G20 summit   in   India   and admitted he was struggling to tell if it was day or night.

'Good evening, everyone,' he told a press conference.

'It's already evening, isn't it? It's around the world in five days - it's interesting.

'One of my coworkers said, 'Remember the famous song 'Good Morning Vietnam'?' Well, good evening, Vietnam'.'

In what was supposed to be a show of stamina - Biden is circumnavigating the globe in five days - he ended the 26-minute event by saying, 'I'm going to go to bed.' 










The president had been asked if he was concerned that there was no agreement on   fossil fuels  that came out of the G20 Leaders' Summit in New Delhi.

He regaled reporters with a story he says is from a John Wayne movie and features the 'Indians' - not the ones he just met with - who don't buy it when a Union soldier says 'everything will be good' if they go back to the reservation. 

'And the Indian looks at John Wayne and points to the Union soldier and says, 'He's a lying dog-faced pony soldier.' Well, there's a lot of lying dog faced pony soldiers out there about   global warming . But not anymore,' Biden said. 'All of the sudden, they're all realizing it's a problem,' the president said, whispering into the mic.

He's used 'lying dog-faced pony soldier,' once at a 2020 campaign event in New Hampshire and at an  event in Connecticut in June , where he also muttered, 'God save the Queen, man.' 

The president's clumsy comments were leapt on by opponents and slammed by critics as further signs that he would struggle to cope with a second term.

'Biden gets VERY confused during his 'press conference' in Vietnam,' tweeted RNC Research.

'And Democrats wonder why Biden isn't polling better,' added former  Trump senior adviser Jason Miller.

Others cringed at his misplaced attempt at humor warning that his jokey reference to the Vietnam War risked upsetting a key ally in the struggle against China.

Sunday's bizarre moment came at a press conference that started more than an hour late and kicked off by the president acknowledging that his aides told him who he would be calling on.

Expecting a President to be  competent enough to run a Press Conference where he chose the reporters to call on and answered questions until he was ready to stop is an incredibly low bar.

Sadly,  we have Biden, whose every move must be stage  managed and stopped from exercising any independence of will at all. .

This seed is a hit piece on Biden. 

I watched the relevant video from the Daily Mail article. The press secretary announces the press conference is ending. Big deal - maybe Biden would have went on for another half an hour if someone didnt tell him it was time to end it. So they ended it. Big deal. 

The most egregious part of this slam on Biden is the idea, magnified by rwnj on social media such as Newstalkers, that Biden "kept talking" after his mic was shut off, as if he didnt realize what was going on. That is not what the video shows at all. Immediately after the mic is shut off a reporter shouts a question to Biden, and Biden very briefly answers him. The mic is off, but then turned back on halfway through Bidens reply to the reporter. Then, with no more comment, he leaves the stage. 

All the while, Biden continued to speak, not realizing his mic had long since been muted. 

That is a lie, and a bold lie at that. And one that will no doubt be echoed by the rw on Newstalkers.

This screen shot shows Biden placing the microphone down inside the podium.  This was literally three seconds after the announcement that the press conference was ending. 

As I said, then another question was shouted from the audience, Biden heard it, and responded. There is not a single thing unusual about that. Reporters keep asking questions after press conferences end all the time. 

This disgraceful lying from the right has to stop.

You're pretending to see what is not there.

There is no lying involved. Joe Dementia is clearly confused and befuddled and having another brain freeze.

This happens time after time when he is allowed to speak. You can deny his decline all day long but the voters are not going to. Biden cannot handle the stresses and rigors of the presidency even now, let alone for another four years.

Biden did yesterday , when he was tired, something that Trump couldnt do in a million years. He talked about climate change and developing nations for six straight minutes, and made a lot of sense. 

I bring up specifics and visual evidence, you spout right wing talking points. Who is more believable?

If I was a progressive democrat, I wouldn't even bother trying to defend all these incidents which show cognitive decline. I would simply point out that Biden, or more likely whoever pulls his strings, has put forward every policy that I could ever dream of. As the campaign season advances, we won't see much more of Joe Biden. It's time to return to Delaware.

There is no comment you can make. There is nothing , and I mean nothing, in that video that makes Joe Biden look "diminshed", other than his physical stiffness and a slight appearance of frailty.  His words are straightforward and to the point, even with the sort of repetition that has been his style for decades. Frankly, Donald Trump could never talk about global warming with the specificity that Biden does, Trump would end up with windmills after 30 seconds. Biden talks about global warming and developing countries for 6 minutes. 

You guys just like to knock his appearance and his stiffness. That says more about the right wing than it does about Biden.

But please Vic, tell us, in detail what there is in this video that proves that Biden is diminished.

The video speaks for itself. Everyone gets to draw their own conclusions. 

You claim he is bright & alert. That is on you. I suppose it goes to the support Biden got in 2020. At that time I asked what policies Joe Biden supported. Only one person could give an answer. She submitted the DNC platform that year as her answer.

Now he has a record as president. That is all that counts and that is what we really should be voting on.

Before people like me call out [Deleted,] you have been telling people that Biden is mentally "unfit" to be president. Now you say the only thing that counts is his record. I suppose that is progress. 

You claim he is bright [&] alert. That is on you.

Joe Biden is an elderly man . "Bright and alert" is a relative term in that case. He is noticeable physically stiff, and walks haltingly. When he speaks he sometimes gets "out over his skis" meaning he starts to talk before he has formed the sentence in his mind. So he ends up repeating bits and pieces of phrases and sentences. 

In the video Joe Biden speaks, with some specificity , about global warming and its relation to developing nations. For 6 minutes. I didnt have the slightest difficulty understanding him. Trump could not do that. One, he doesnt know anything about global warming, and two , he doesnt have an attention span of 6 minutes. 

Just stop.

I have always said that. Even you once conceded that actions are more important than words.

And some people leave their statements open to interpretation. The issue of his gaffs, storytelling, and outright lies is a secondary point until he actually makes a decision on his own. One could argue that the manner in which he left Afghanistan was entirely his. That is where fitness for office comes in. Did Putin use the Afghanistan debacle when calculating an invasion of Ukraine?  That decision had ramifications, but it is the policies that came from whoever is pulling the strings that really concerns me.

Climate change is taking place, and we all agree on that, but Biden's climate policy has been INSANE and DESTRUCTIVE for the nation. Trump had the US self-sufficient in energy instead of us being dependent on the Arabs again. The latest from OPEC is that prices are going up. We are decades away from being able to support a system of electric vehicles. Then there is the matter of the 5 trillion that Biden added to the debt with was essentially a green new deal. That "deal" is now estimated to cost us even more than expected.  Do you still want to talk about Biden's climate policy?

Biden was speaking  in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi  after two days at the G20 summit in New Delhi, India. He was answering a question about China's relationship with the United States before announcing that he was sleepy.

"But I tell you what, I don't know about you, but I'm going to go to bed," Biden said to a group of reporters.

He is old and tired, but he is only a figure head for the left. People who are blessed with the right to vote need to keep that in mind. When you vote for him, you are voting for the most radical elements in American society.

"What did you talk about with Mr. Li? You said you spoke with the number two from China in India today," the reporter asked.

"Yeah, we talked…we talked about…we talked about it at the conference. Overall, we talked about stability," Biden said while appearing tired. "We talked about making sure that the Third World, the Third World….the Southern Hemisphere had access to change. It had access."
