Joe Biden had a long phone call with China’s President Xi on Friday.
Naturally, reporters wanted details. Multiple members of the press tried to ask Biden questions, but he just sat there silently and shuffled the papers in front of him.
How is this normal?
The Daily Wire reported:
WATCH: Biden Straight Up Ignores Reporters’ Questions, Calmly Shuffles Papers Instead
President Joe Biden appeared wholly uninterested in taking questions from reporters on Friday, ignoring a number of shouted questions while he flipped through papers instead.
Biden held a lengthy video call with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday morning — nearly two hours — and reporters peppered the president with questions after.
Several outlets shared video of Biden calmly shuffling through papers, giving no indication that he was even hearing the chaotic shouting around him.
“Does Joe Biden feel good about refusing to answer any questions?” Townhall asked.

Can you even begin to imagine the media’s reaction if Trump had done this?
They would lose their minds.
