The mental filter on Democrat Joe Biden is being tested, and independent media is slapping him over it, as the lapdog corporate media ignore the very creepy tell-tale signs of Biden’s struggles with the power of being commander and chief and head diplomat. Unfortunately, Biden is leading the way in showing other leaders how to be flippant to the media.
And his legendary creep whispering is hitting the news cycles again. Hopefully, other leaders won’t follow his whisper tactics.
Biden made news go viral on Thursday – talking under his breath about the World Bank, and behaving in a way that was discrediting to journalists over a significant concern that he refused to acknowledge, but transcripts show what he said, and it may not be all that surprising considering what Democrats are saying about the same organization.
“Al Gore Calls the World Bank Chief a ‘Climate Denier’: The former vice president also said President Biden should seek to have the Trump-nominated bank leader, David Malpass, removed from his role,” The New York Times reported.
Which sets the stage for what Biden did.
At a press conference with a world leader, Biden just sort of flippantly blew off a reporter’s question about the World Bank, at a time of grave concern over the global economy and the impacts on the United States.
POTUS Biden has repeatedly dodged difficult questions from the media for the entirety of his administration — and independent now points out he may have encouraged another world leader to do the same.
On Thursday, for the first time, Biden met with Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. to restore relations after the U.S. experienced “rocky times” with the Southeast Asian nation, the Washington Post reported.
Overall, it was a garden-variety diplomatic meeting between the president and his Philippine counterpart, but something very interesting happened.
Western Journal covered the story:
Marcos took over in June from former Phillippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who had an especially contentious relationship with the U.S. over human rights abuses, opening the door to a warmer relationship.
However, it wasn’t so much what the men discussed during the meeting, but rather an utterance Biden made under his breath as reporters peppered them with questions afterward that carried great significance.
As reporters were shouting their queries while being ushered out of the room — per the usual custom — Biden first sat still looking on.

Then, one reporter, in particular, asked, “Do you have confidence in David Malpass of the World Bank?” This elicited a response from Biden that is inaudible, but the White House transcript released after the meeting precisely captured the off-the-cuff comment.
“I wouldn’t bother answering,” Biden said.
That question was likely directed at Biden in light of the controversy surrounding World Bank President David Malpass, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, and his recent reluctance to toe the line on manmade climate change, Reuters reported.
“Or, perhaps Biden was giving himself a general reminder by repeating a stage direction he was previously fed by one of his handlers,” Christine Favocci reported for TWJ, adding:
Alternatively, as suggested by the way he subtly tossed his head toward Marcos as he was making the statement, maybe Biden was advising the world leader to treat the press just as he does where no question is too important to ignore.
It would make sense that Biden’s addled mind was stuck in the middle of the last century when the World Bank has been roundly criticized for the way it funded the dictatorial regime of Marcos’s father, Ferdinand Marcos Sr.
Regardless of whether he was talking to himself in his creepy whisper again, or trying to counsel a world leader in the art of obfuscation, it was yet another instance of Biden’s royalty complex.
Biden is the king and doesn’t have to answer to anyone about anything — unless his wife or one of his handlers tells him to, that is.
Washington Post reported on the same event adding details:
Meeting on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly, the leaders discussed tensions in the South China Sea, the long-standing security relationship between the United States and the Philippines, stresses to the global economy and food security caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and other issues.
Biden also noted that the Philippines was among U.S. allies to quickly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The relationship hit bumps during the presidency of Marcos’ predecessor, Rodrigo Duterte.
Human rights groups say Duterte’s “war on drugs” resulted in thousands of extrajudicial killings. According to human rights groups, virtually all the killings, carried out by police and armed vigilantes, occurred without due process, and the vast majority of victims were unarmed, poor low-level offenders. The U.S. government has suspended counter-narcotics assistance to the Philippine National Police since 2016.
The White House in a statement said that the leaders discussed “the importance of respect for human rights.”
Thursday’s talks come amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and China over America’s Taiwan policy. The “One China” policy recognizes Beijing as the government of China but allows informal relations and defense ties with Taiwan. China claims the self-ruled island as its own.
Marcos, the son and namesake of the country’s former dictator, took office in June. He has said he wants to pursue closer ties with China, which has also sought to court him.
Marcos underscored to Biden that the Philippines is “your partners, we are your allies, we are your friends.” He also thanked the U.S. for its “massive” assistance during the pandemic, including sharing COVID-19 vaccines, and for its role in ensuring peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific.
“The role of the United States in maintaining the peace in our region is something that is much appreciated by all the countries in the region, and the Philippines, especially,” Marcos said. He added, “The 100-plus-year-old relationship between the Philippines and the U.S. continues to evolve as we face the challenges of this new century.”
