Biden’s Vietnam Debacle – Watch
President Joe Biden’s rambling press conference in Vietnam on Sunday was abruptly cut short by his staff, who turned off his mic and played jazz music to usher him off the stage.
Biden was asked about the fact that he had not spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping in 10 months and whether he thought that would destabilize U.S.-China relations.
The president started out saying that he had met with China’s “number two person in India today,” segued to saying sympathetically of Xi, “he has his hands full right now because of rampant unemployment among China’s youth,” before veering off, “I don’t know about you, but I’m going to bed.”
He started to ramble, “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” before his mic was cut off and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre announced, “Thank you, everybody. This ends the press conference. Thanks, everyone.”
Earlier in the press conference, Biden admitted, “I’ll just follow my orders here. Staff, is there anybody that hasn’t spoken yet?” He then turned to the reporters, declaring, “I ain’t calling on you.”
Biden railed against those who dispute the climate change narrative, calling them “lying dog-faced pony soldiers.” He stated:
“My brother, he loves famous lines from movies that he always quotes. One of them is there’s a movie about John Wayne, he’s an Indian scout, and there trying to get one of the tribes of America back on the reservation, and they’re on their horses and their saddles, and there are three or four Indians in headdresses and the Union solider basically saying ‘We’ll take care of you, everything’ll be good,’ and the Indian looks at John Wayne and points to the Union soldier and says, ‘He’s a lying dog-faced pony soldier.’”
“Well, there’s a lot of lying dog-faced pony soldiers out there about global warming,” Biden continued. “But not anymore. All of a sudden, they’re all realizing it’s a problem.”
Biden gets VERY confused during his "press conference" in Vietnam:
