President Joe Biden’s track record of mistakes continues to expand. During a joint press conference with Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, Biden made an interesting choice to criticize the idea of prioritizing our own country’s interests.
He stated that an America-first policy weakens us rather than makes us stronger. The video shared by RNC Research captures this moment.
The conference took place at Camp David in Maryland and was marked by various blunders from Biden. However, the most notable misstep occurred at the end when he left his earpiece in and walked off the stage without shaking hands with the other speakers.
In the RNC Research video, as the announcer declares, “This concludes our press conference…,” Biden turns to exit the stage. In the midst of turning, his earpiece falls out and clatters on the podium. He momentarily searches for it, realizing that it’s just the earpiece he relies on for communication rather than his own thoughts. He grins, raises his hands, and remarks, “We’re winning all the competitions.” He then resumes his exit.
Toward the end of the video, as Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and President Yoon Suk Yeol shake hands, Biden departs. Despite the awkwardness, the two leaders exchange smiles and nods.
They appear to share an unspoken sentiment of “wow, what a mistake,” before falling in line behind Biden. This incident wasn’t the only instance where Biden managed to offend those present at the conference.
At one point, he commented to a Japanese reporter about their great imagination, then proceeded to critique the question and finally bluntly stated, “…glad I didn’t have you as my law professor.” It’s reaching a point where the Biden Administration might find it challenging to have him appear in public events.
