If there is one thing that we can be certain about when it comes to President Joe Biden, it’s that, at some point during his day, he is going to misspeak.
Biden’s gaffes and nonsense have been a part of his career from the very beginning, and they’ve only become more bizarre as his age begins to weigh on him.
This week, in what appears to be an effort to keep the President from manifesting some new controversy, the White House has now taken the extraordinary step of arbitrarily cutting off Biden’s video feed when he steps off-script.
The White House abruptly cut the feed of President Biden’s briefing on wildfires with federal and state officials.
During Monday’s visit to Boise, Idaho, Biden received a briefing about the ongoing wildfires that have plagued several states out west.
While Biden spoke for much of the briefing, at one point he said he wanted to hear more from George Geissler of the National Association of State Foresters.
“Can I ask you a question?” Biden asked.
“Of course,” Geissler responded.
“One of the things that I’ve been working on with some others is —” Biden said before being cut off mid-sentence.
The incident was soon being shared online.

Biden has consistently suggested to the press pool that he would be “in trouble” were he to remain and take their questions, implying that he may be receiving some protective PR suggestions from folks in his inner circle who recognize the appearance of frailty that he is projecting.
