The White House abruptly cut their video feed of a virtual event Wednesday after President Joe Biden asked reporters for questions.
“I’m happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance, whatever you want me to do,” an uncertain Biden said.
Biden was speaking with members of the House Democrat caucus, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
The president appeared to look off-camera for direction before his image was replaced with a graphic of the White House. His final comment was deleted from the video of the event posted to the White House YouTube page.

Breitbart News reported Biden has not held a solo press conference in the 42 days he has been president, breaking a 100-year record.
His aide gives Joe some smelling salts right before these conferences and keeps repeating “They love you Joe. now just read from the teleprompter”.
