White House Blames Boris Johnson For Biden’s Spontaneous Nap, Claims Moment Was Cut Because of Unauthorized Statement

Joe Biden falls asleep every time he sits down. Doesn’t matter which world leader is in attendance. This time it was Boris Johnson who was thrown under the bus. The White House claimed that the cameras were cut off frantically because Johnson didn’t have “permission” to speak to the press. (No one seems to mind that in the nation supposedly of free speech, such a statement is an excuse.)

The Conservative Treehouse reported:

The diplomatic relations between the White House and foreign allies took another hit today  The White House spokesperson Jennifer Psaki declared the reason why White House aides interrupted the U.K. Prime Minister yesterday mid-sentence was because Boris Johnson did not ask the White House in advance for permission to speak to the assembled media.

This diplomatic slight against the U.K Prime Minster follows on news last Friday that the French government was withdrawing their U.S. ambassador over Joe Biden’s secret talks with Australia, cutting the French off at the knees in a previous arrangement to build a nuclear submarine.  Currently, the Israeli government is considering withdrawing their ambassador to the U.S. because the Biden administration has unilaterally cut funding and support for the Iron-dome missile defense system.

In a remarkable display of hubris and self-importance, Jennifer Psaki announced today that all speech by foreign heads of state must be approved by the White House.

If you watch the actual Oval Office event, the motive to quickly get the media out of the room is actually quite different.  As the British Prime Minister was talking, Joe Biden started to fall asleep.  The WH handlers noticed it quickly and shouted for everyone to get out.  That shout actually startled Joe Biden awake.

The Gateway Pundit added:

It didn’t take long for Joe Biden to stab Boris Johnson in the back.

Joe Biden participated in a bilateral meeting with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday in the Oval Office.

Boris Johnson unexpectedly answered three questions from British reporters while Biden’s handlers shouted down the press.

American reporters tried to ask Joe Biden questions but they were blocked.

The White House Press Pool on Tuesday launched a “formal objection” to Joe Biden refusing to take questions.

“Johnson took 3 questions. White House aides shouted down U.S. attempts to ask questions. I asked Biden about southern border and we couldn’t decipher what he said,” CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe said.

It goes against protocol to have an uneven distribution of representatives allowed to ask questions.

CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe on Wednesday confronted Psaki about Biden’s refusal to answer questions from American journalists and she threw Boris Johnson under the bus.

“I think our relationship with the United Kingdom and with prime minister Johnson is so strong and abiding, we’ll be able to move beyond this,” she added. “But he called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance.”

Psaki offered up a snooty response after another reporter asked if Biden felt upstaged by Boris Johnson.

“I think the president has not spent a moment worrying about it,” Psaki said.
