It is yet another day of President Joe Biden apparently proving that handlers call the shots and he just takes to the mic to deliver news. On Wednesday, September 8, 2021, just as his remarks in honor of labor unions was coming to an end, the President ended it by saying what he was "supposed" to do. "I‘m supposed to stop and walk out of the room," Biden said after finishing prepared comments in the East Room of the White House. 

"Now, I'm supposed to stop and walk out of the room here," Biden said wrapping up his speech, which had been projected on a teleprompter. "I'm going to stop, and with your permission, I'm going to walk into the room because I want to say hello to all of you."

Conspiracy theories abound after Joe Biden says he was 'instructed' to call reporter

This particular moment reminded many viewers that Biden has often suggested that there are other people who set the rules about what he is allowed to do and what not. Many took to social media to share their disapproval of his words. What's more, is that Biden didn't 'walk out of the room' as he said he would, he stayed back and mingled with the audience. 

It first started with Biden’s first formal White House press conference as president in January 2021 when a member of Biden's staff was heard calling on specific reporters to ask their questions to the president. Up until recently, Biden had said, "I’m not supposed to take any questions," admitting that he was "instructed" to call on specific reporters, and declaring that "they gave me a list of people I’m going to call on". Reports say that he told reporters he would "get in trouble" if he didn’t follow orders and even said, "I'd be happy to take questions if that's what I'm supposed to do." 

But on Sept 8 when the president declared that he was "supposed" to stop and walk out of the room, it sparked anger in a lot of people. Many shared their thoughts on his latest statement, not holding their words back. "Biden at the end of his prepared remarks: "I‘m supposed to stop and walk out of the room"," one user shared along with a video of Biden saying it at the end of his speech. 



 

A user took a jab, "We are supposed to pretend this is normal." Another user wrote, "WHY DOES HE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT WHAT HE'S SUPPOSED TO DO?" adding a taunt, ""These are the rigid instructions I've been given by my team of handlers" - The leader of the free world".



 



 

An angry user said, "WHY is Biden supposed to Stop- then walk out. WHO is telling him what to do? He can do whatever he wants! ugg- He keeps telling on himself that he has handlers for every second of his life!"



 

 

One user said, "Whoever is directing Joe, should tell him *not* to tell everyone he's being directed..." Another user wrote, "He’s not in charge anymore, Biden was supposed to fix everything with his plan like he said and hasn’t done shit to stop it. It’s looking to be worse now than ever." Echoing the same sentiment, another troll asked: "Again, WHO IS IN CHARGE??"
