During press conferences, Joe Biden sometimes rambles on long after his handlers tell him to stop talking.
Occasionally he even takes questions from the wrong reporter.
And Joe Biden just slipped up and admitted one major secret about his relationship with the Fake News Media.
Joe Biden is known for making gaffes virtually anytime he speaks in public, even when reading from a script.
This is why his handlers are adamant about keeping him out of the public eye by using pre-written, pre-recorded statements as much as possible.
However, sometimes Joe Biden is forced to speak off-script in front of a public audience.
And during a press conference following his overseas trip to Geneva, where he met face-to-face with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Biden gaffed and admitted to the press corp that he has a pre-approved list of reporters he is allowed to take questions from.
“I’ll take your questions, and as usual, folks, they gave me a list of the people I’m going to call on,” Biden said.
Of course, it’s been known for quite some time that Joe Biden only takes questions from a pre-approved list.
In fact, Biden faced criticism after his first formal press conference after moving into the White House because he only took questions from the list of reporters approved by his handlers.
“A White House handler is calling on reporters by name and by outlet one-by-one to ask Biden a question, unlike Trump who called on reporters as the [spirit] moved him,” Real Clear News reporter Philip Wegmann said at the time.
And in March, Biden accidentally referred to a “cheat sheet” of approved reporters, which included their name and photo with many having a number circled next to it.
Not only that, but during a podcast interview with David Axelrod, Jen Psaki admitted they told Biden not to take questions from reporters.
“That is not something we recommend. In fact, a lot of times we say ‘don’t take questions,’” Psaki told Axelrod when asked about Biden taking questions from reporters.
This is the exact opposite of Donald Trump, who took questions regularly from all members of the media, even CNN.
