President Joe Biden’s recent press conference in Vietnam on September 11th sparked concerns and controversy as he made comments that left many questioning his mental and decision-making abilities. Here’s the full story.
The Press Conference
During the press conference, President Biden appeared somewhat fatigued.
I’ll Just Follow My Orders
He began by stating, “I’ll just follow my orders here. Staff, is there anybody that hasn’t spoken yet? I ain’t calling on you.”
As Biden continued to answer reporters’ questions, he appeared to lose track of his own thoughts.
“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.
The Press Secretary Ended the Conference
Then the press conference abruptly ended with the intervention of Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre.
She announced, “Thank you everybody. This ends the press conference. Thanks everyone,” effectively cutting off the president’s remarks.
The President Was Unaware
Biden, seemingly unaware that the press conference had concluded, continued to speak, unaware that his microphone had been muted.
I’m Going to Bed
Finally, he said, “I tell you what, I don’t know about you, but I’m going to bed.”
More Bizarre Scenes
To add to the bizarre scene, jazz music was playing over the loudspeaker, further drowning out the president’s voice.
Biden Was Confused
Biden persisted in trying to answer questions as he shuffled away from the stage, disappearing behind a black curtain.
Throughout the press conference, Biden exhibited moments of disorientation and confusion.
Social Media Users Shared Their Thoughts
The incident quickly went viral on social media, with many expressing concern and confusion about the president’s statements and behavior.
Many questioned who might be giving orders to the President of the United States and whether he was truly in control.
Who Is Giving the Orders?
One social media user wrote, “Why does Joe Biden keep telling America …. and the world … he is just following orders? Who is giving the President of the United States orders to follow? And why?”
We Know Biden Is Not in Control
Another user said, “Yes we know you are not in control and you follow orders! We have known this! We are not as stupid as you handlers think we are and we are not going to comply like they expect us to do! We will remove everyone from Washington and replace them with people who work for the people!”
The Leader of the Free World
A third person commented, “The LEADER (cough**cough) of the Free World just said, ‘I just follow orders from my staff.”
He Is Not Running Anything
One user wrote, “When you have a so-called president telling EVERYBODY he does NOTHING except what his handlers tell him to do then you know he is not running ANYTHING!”
