People did not elect Biden as global cop,he wonder why party members say he should not run

While a wanna-be president searches for photo-ops in S. Korea, the actual President is meeting with the president of S. Korea in DC at a state dinner and making real, impactful policy.

Rock-star Ronnie's roadies didn't consider the optics of this?

Talk about State Fair - level amateurism.

Biden Cheat Sheet Shows He Knew What Topic Reporter Would Ask Him About

A cheat sheet that President Joe Biden used to call on reporters during a joint press conference with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol on Wednesday showed that he knew in advance the topics that the reporter was going to ask him about.

The notecard held by Biden, 80, stated that his first question was to come from Los Angeles Times reporter Courtney Subramanian.

“How are YOU squaring YOUR domestic priorities — like reshoring semiconductors manufacturing — with alliance-based foreign policy?” the question on the card stated.

When Biden called on her, Subramanian stated: “Your top economic priority has been to build U.S. domestic manufacturing in competition with China, but your rules against expanding chip manufacturing in China is hurting South Korean companies that rely heavily on Beijing.”

“Are you damaging a key ally in the competition with China to help your domestic politics ahead of the election?” Subramanian asked.

While the question on the cheat sheet and the question that was eventually asked were not exactly the same, they were on the same topic: How is Biden balancing his domestic priorities regarding chip manufacturing while trying to work with U.S. allies?

Biden has faced criticism in the past for using cheat sheets to help him know who to call on and to help keep him on track during public events.

In 2022, a cheat card that Biden used during a press conference instructed him how to answer “tough Putin” question.

The notecard stated in part:

If you weren’t advocating for regime change, what did you mean? Can you clarify?

I was expressing the moral outrage I felt towards the actions of this man.

I was not articulating a change in policy.

The notecard on how to deal with questions came in response to Biden stating about Putin, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

The White House was forced to quickly walk back Biden’s remarks, saying in a statement:

South Korea's President Yoon Suk Yeol listens as President Joe Biden speaks

why does Joe need an earpiece when he is speaking?

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

It's an earpiece for when Yoon talks. Everyone knows this.

Most rational, educated people who have ever watched an international press conference already know this.

South Korea going to nuke up. Maybe when Yoon is defeated, unfortunately.

Do you think Biden's warning Putin NOT to proliferate WMDs and high-tech delivery platforms?

As NK, Iran, China and their MANY proxies getting lots of good stuff from Russia now, historical weapons proliferation, even this Mercenary Wagner Group regularly boasts about all their new toys!

One naturally wonders about these designated terrorist groups; seems deterrence isn't working out too well!
