Really, Joe? Now’s not the time…
During a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and tech CEOs on Friday, Biden made a joke about selling state secrets. It was quickly cut up and shared on Twitter and then fact-checked by Twitter’s community notes squad.
Watch the clip above.
However, even if Joe WAS joking, why would he make that kind of joke while being investigated by multiple House GOP committees for (checks notes) taking bribes and possibly selling state secrets?
Nobody knows but Joe.
Biden opened the meeting with Modi and senior tech company executives by remarking, “I was just thanking, uh, uh, anyway… I started off without you, and I sold a lot of state secrets and a lot of very important things that we shared.”
Modi, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and others at the table laughed before the president noted that he was “kidding.” He went on to praise the technology partnership between the US and India
