President Biden is still in the U.K., at G7 meetings.
The nations in the G7 include the U.K., Germany, France, Canada, Italy, U.S. and Japan. But other leaders were invited to attend the meetings, including South Korea, India, and South Africa. The leader of India, Narendra Modi, attended the meeting virtually, but South Africa’s president, Cyril Ramaphosa, was there in person.
The Prime Minister of the U.K., Boris Johnson, introduced the attendees of the G7 meeting. “Welcome, those who joined us. We have Prime Minister Modi, President Ramaphosa, President Moon in a moment.”
But that’s when Biden jumped in, confused. “And the president of South Africa., Biden stated, despite Johnson just having introduced president Ramaphosa. Biden then pointed toward the South African president, who was at the table.
Boris Johnson insists to Joe Biden that he already introduced the president of South Africa to a G7 meeting.

Johnson corrected him and said he had mentioned Ramaphosa, to which Joe seems to say he didn’t hear it.
Joe didn’t have Kamala or Jill there to cover for him when he messed up. But Johnson puts his arm out to stop Joe, treating him like a five-year-old speaking out of turn. Everyone laughs. That is actually even worse than just being confused about who was mentioned or not. Joe seems like he does not understand that.
It’s clear that the U.K PM thinks he can treat Biden that way, which is not good — an embarrassing and weak look for a president.
It is right about this point that reporters are rushed out by officials. Can’t have them getting any of the issues with Biden, or it could cause problems for their “Build Back Better” agenda.
Part of the issue of having Biden go to these gatherings is that his handlers can’t do much. He must participate, so there will be problems.
His presser at the G7 was also a train wreck. When your wife scolds you to “pay attention” and leads you away from reporters, it’s terrible.
On top of this, Biden had already shown that the days of putting America first are gone now that he is in office. Macron labeled Biden as “part of the club” (translation: a globalist who puts America’s interests last).
French President Emmanuel Macron to Joe Biden: “What we need is cooperation. I think it’s great to have a US President who is part of the club.”
I don’t know about you, but I thought an American President is supposed to LEAD, not be “part of the club”.
Of course, Biden nods. pic.twitter.com/RjzwwLQ8No

We are in serious trouble with this guy, and the only thing worse could be the person who would take over.
Europe loves controlling Biden! Watch this….
They LOVE him. I mean, they are ecstatic to have Biden in the US chair.
God help us. https://t.co/SVJCg32LcP
