President Joe Biden raised eyebrows on Thursday, June 24, as he repeatedly whispered to reporters for emphasis during an impromptu press conference at the White House. Social media was abuzz with jokes about the "really creepy" presidential delivery.

Biden hunched over his lectern on three separate occasions as he forcefully whispered to reporters at the White House East Room. While the President may have simply intended to emphasize his points while discussing a trillion-dollar infrastructure deal, the move appeared to have backfired.

PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor asked Biden about additional relief for families. "I got them $1.9 trillion in relief so far," Biden whispered in response. "They’re going to be getting checks in the mail that are consequential this week for childcare.”

At some point, CNN reporter Phil Mattingly asked Biden about how the deal was brokered despite low expectations. “I’m not going to negotiate with the press when I’m negotiating privately with my colleagues," Biden responded, speaking in a normal voice. "And these are very tough decisions. I don’t in any way dismiss what Senator [Chris] Murphy says about the environment. I don’t dismiss it at all."

But then he dropped to a whisper once again, stooping his head as his eyes grew wide. “I wrote the bill on the environment. Why would I not be for it?” he said. The POTUS whispered for a third time while touching on concerns that some workers were preferring to collect COVID-19 unemployment benefits than return to low-income jobs. “Pay them more. This is an employee’s — an employee’s bargaining chip now,” Biden whispered bizarrely into the mic.



 

Social media was inundated with reactions to the peculiar presidential 'performance.' “The Biden lean in and long whisper into the mic was very very bizarre," Senator Josh Hawley's press secretary Abigail Marone tweeted.

“BIDEN: Should I do the whisper thing? INTERN: Definitely," Podcaster Chase Geiser captioned the clip.

“Creepy Joe is really creepy,” added conservative activist Brigitte Gabriel.

“Biden’s constant whisper may be weirder than Kamala’s constant laugh," Republican Governors Association Communication Director Jesse Hunt wrote.

“I don't know how to react to that Biden whisper moment just now," added Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s press secretary Doug Andres. "Joe Biden’s earpiece whispers and he whispers back," one Twitter user joked.



 



 



 



 



 



 

Several other observers chimed in. "Let me know when he whispers about windmill cancer, revolutionary war airports, a virus in 1918 that ended a war in 1945, YoSemite and Thighland," one Twitter user quipped.

"That's because he was trying to sniff the microphone because he saw some hair laying on it. It got him excited and he wanted to use sexy talk to get more hair magically appear. He forgot what he was talking about anyways," another wrote.

"He's not making a full term. My grandmother had dementia. If people can't see it it's because they don't want to. But don't even try to act like this dude is playing with a full deck," another added.
