When you watch Joe Biden speak on TV, you have to laugh, cry, or throw things across the room in anger.
Apparently, his staff at the White House feels the same way. They find his remarks so full of cringe that they mute the TV or just turn it off.
This is his own staff doing this!
Biden anxiety levels
JOE BIDEN often thinks he’s his own best messenger. Many people in his own White House don’t always agree.
When Biden gives public remarks, some White House staffers will either mute him or turn off his remarks, according to White House officials.
It’s not that they’re indifferent to what their boss has to say. Indeed, their livelihoods are directly invested in it. Rather, they’re filled with anxiety that he’s going to take questions from the press and veer off the West Wing’s carefully orchestrated messaging.
“I know people who habitually don’t watch it live for that reason,” said one current official.
Biden’s advisers have urged him to answer fewer of the questions being shouted at him by reporters covering his events. While the president sometimes obliges and quickly leaves the podium after remarks, he has a tendency to buck those staffers trying to rein him in. “I’m not supposed to take any questions, but go ahead,” he said after addressing FEMA the other week.
What are the American people supposed to think if Biden’s own staff can’t stand to listen to him talk?

Biden's gaffes are so bad that his own staff mutes or turns off the TV when he's speaking because they can't bear to watch him fumble his way through a speech or questions from reporters.https://t.co/jAFhoQ8Q9G
