Republican Senator James Risch demanded to know who is in charge of cutting off President Biden’s microphone when he goes off script, as has been witnessed several times over the past few months.
In a heated exchange with Secretary of State Anthony Blinken during a hearing before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Risch bluntly asked, “Who’s calling the shots?” As expected, Blinken denied there is such a person. “The president speaks for himself, makes all the strategic decisions, informed by the advice he can get from the best people around him.” A bald-face lie, of course, for a Commander in Chief who stumbles and bumbles around the lectern during his addresses, then shuts down and walks off without entertaining questions.
An adamant Risch again reminded Blinken that the president was cut off in mid-sentence at an event earlier this week, a process that has happened many times before and is widely reported in the media. “This is a puppeteer act, if you would, and we need to know who’s in charge and who is making the decisions. Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound.” More from Alex Jones on Infowars.
