President Joe Biden has repeatedly implied that his handlers set the rules and determine when and where he’s allowed to take questions from the press, leading observers to ponder who is actually calling the shots behind the scenes.
Now it appears that we may have an answer to that question.
A newly resurfaced video seems to reveal who is actually calling the shots as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is caught on a hot mic ordering aides not to allow President Biden to take questions.
The video was taken at Biden’s appearance at a House Democratic Caucus event in March 2021,
“I’m happy to take questions, if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance — whatever you want me to do,” Biden obediently tells his boss, Nancy.
“Am I off?” Pelosi asks an aide. “No, we don’t want him to talk.”
