President Biden mocked the fake White House decor
President Biden is widely mocked on social media for running a ‘Truman Show presidency’ after being photographed speaking from a fake White House set that shows a digital view of the rose garden in full bloom from a fake window behind him.
Twitter erupted after Biden was spotted sitting in front of the digital projection window on Wednesday as he held a meeting with business leaders and CEOs on the need to raise the debt ceiling.
Some ridiculed Biden for using a “literal game show” as president, while others accused him of deliberately trying to deceive Americans into believing he was in the White House.
“Why does Joe Biden feel the need to use a fake White House located across from the actual White House? Conservative commentator Benny Johnson tweeted.
Brother commentator Jack Posobiec wrote, “Truman Show Chairman,” adding that “they gave Joe Biden a daycare office and a fake oval office in a fake White House.”
Stephen Miller, former senior adviser to President Donald Trump, claimed that Biden only used the White House imitation to be able to read a script directly from a front-facing screen.
“The reason why Biden uses this bizarre virtual set for televised meetings – and not an actual room like East Room, Cabinet, Oval, Roosevelt, Sit Room, etc. – is because it allows him to read a script directly to from a face-to-face monitor (and without teleprompter glass visible to the camera), ”he said. tweeted.
“Aren’t they allowing him to enter the White House,” New Hampshire reporter Kimberly Morin tweeted.
“Why did the White House build a complete game show with fake windows for Joe Biden ??? So weird, ”Abigail Marone, press secretary to Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), tweeted.
The set where Biden was photographed – which is complete with professional monitors and lighting – is located in the South Courtyard Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is across from the White House.
It is used for events broadcast online or involving video conferencing, and includes a small area for members of the media to watch.
Biden has used the set on several occasions, including for his COVID-19 virtual summit with other world leaders on September 22. He also rolled up his sleeves to receive his COVID-19 booster vaccine on set last week.
The physical location of Biden’s event on Wednesday was listed on a transcription of his words on the White House website.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and United Nations Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield were also pictured using the set for events.
