President Joe Biden has made it abundantly clear that he's not a fan of press events, as he's typically unprepared to answer tough questions or get through a presser without stammering and gaffing it to pieces.
According to the Daily Caller, it was evidenced clearly, once again, this week that Biden can't get rid of reporters quick enough, as he was caught on a hot mic asking his aides to make sure the press in attendance leave the room.
The bizarre moment came during a recent panel with top leaders from Japan and Korea.
The meeting, which involved President Yoon Suk Yeol of the Republic of Korea and Prime Minister Kishida Fumio of Japan, was a discussion about growing security concerns in the Pacific.
Biden's handlers quickly scurried the press out of the room after Biden, at the end of the discussion, said, "We're gonna politely ask the press to leave..."
He quickly turned and smiled at the rest of the people in attendance.

The Daily Caller noted:
The three countries are looking to create a trilateral relationship with growing security concerns about China’s activities in the area. However, the administration was still discussing whether to mention China at all during the summit after both Beijing and North Korea objected strongly to the meeting.
It didn't take long for social media users to criticize the elderly, often-confused president, as many pointed out that he's simply too scared or incapable of handling tough questions, especially on the topic of China.
"Proof positive that Biden is incapable of handling the job," one X user wrote.
Another X user wrote, "What a corrupt, incompetent, arrogant Bureaucrat. The face of why people hate Politicians."

The president has found himself in more embarrassing clips in recent months, as he seems to grow more distant and confused, often jumbling multiple words into verbal garbage or tripping over something.
That certainly plays a role in his dismal polling numbers, which the White House will need to drastically improve in the coming months if they want any hope of standing a chance in the 2024 election.
