President Joe Biden was ridiculed on Tuesday after a video surfaced of him being ignored by former President Barack Obama at a White House gathering.
The event marked the first time Obama had visited the White House since leaving office five years ago.

Obama was treated like a returning king by Democrats and the mainstream media. Biden, in contrast, struggled alone, with no one seeking to talk with him.
The Republican National Committee research Twitter feed noted, “Literally no one wants to talk to Joe Biden.”

The scene revealed much about the current administration. Many Democrats miss Obama’s flowery speeches and relational style, a strong contrast with Biden’s gaffes and “hidin’ Biden” approach.
The event also showed Democrats appeared to be in some polling trouble, feeling the need to bring Obama back to help motivate the party in a troubling look ahead at the November midterms in which more than 30 House Democrats will not be running, and Republicans could take back power in the House and perhaps the Senate.
