Joe Biden has been getting some viral mocking this week for the use of a stage set made up to look like part of the White House for various events, such as when he got a COVID booster shot for the camera and the press.
He’s also used the set for such things as delivering speeches that one might normally deliver from the Oval Office, such as here, where he’s making up nonsense about raising the debt limit.
Biden also used it for his virtual COVID summit with other world leaders on Sept. 22.
No, that’s not the Oval Office or the Resolute desk. It looks like a tiny cheap little desk you get from K-mart. It’s the stage, set up in the South Court Auditorium of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
So the question is: What’s the point of the fake set? What happened to using the normal rooms of the White House?
They appear to be using it more for events that are broadcast online or involve video conferencing.
Biden was roundly mocked for using such a thing.
