Watch: Biden Won’t Even Look at Reporters While They Try to Ask Him Questions

President Joe Biden may not have mastered much as president, but he has perfected his signature move that involves slinking (well, shuffling) away from reporters without answering a single question.

He appeared to do it once again at the White House Thursday after announcing he would pump some $36 billion dollars into union pensions to keep them afloat, Fox News reported.

The administration claimed that this sizable chunk of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan will be funneled to the unions to save 350,000 members from as much as 60% in pension cuts.

Biden claims the fund will now be solvent until 2051 (or, more realistically, until the next time a Democratic president needs to grease union palms).

“Thanks to today’s announcement, tens of thousands of union retirees and workers in states like Ohio, Michigan, Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Missouri can go to bed tonight knowing their pension they worked so damn hard for is going to be there when they need it,” Biden said.

He was flanked by AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler, Teamsters President Sean O’Brien, and Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, who didn’t seem to mind that the president had just betrayed their railroad union brothers and sisters.

Last week, Biden charged Congress with stopping an impending strike of railroad workers rather than meeting the demands of more favorable sick and vacation policies.

So much for the “union strong” and “fighting for workers” slogans projected in the background during his speech.

Republican strategist Giancarlo Sopo rightly pointed out that this move seemed like an attempt to kiss and make up with the union bosses after such a backstabbing.

“Joe Biden is using taxpayer coffers as his political piggyback to ameliorate his tensions with the Teamsters after failing to fight for the paid sick leave that workers wanted and, quite frankly, deserved,” he told Fox News.

Perhaps that’s why Biden decided not to take any questions from the press, just in case any of them decided…
