The White House Press Pool on Tuesday launched a “formal objection” to Joe Biden refusing to take questions.
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.
“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.
US reporters should be able to ask the same number of questions as foreign press representatives.
But in Biden’s America, US reporters were shut out and not able to ask questions.
“The White House Press Pool immediately launched a formal objection,” CBS reported.
