President Joe Biden participated in a photo op on Sunday during which he and his wife Jill Biden briefly rode on bicycles past a gaggle of reporters. During the ride, reporters asked Biden relevant foreign policy questions, such as when he plans to speak to embattled French President Emmanuel Macron. Biden responded by waving and rapidly pedaling away.
In video footage of the incident, corporate journalists and other Biden supporters can be seen loudly cheering and clapping for the Bidens, but several reporters call out with questions for the POTUS, such as “Mr. President, what will you tell Emmanuel Macron,” and “Mr. President, when are you going to call Macron?”
After briefly waving to the cameras, Biden responds to the questions by briskly pedaling away from the press, though he is slightly outpaced by his wife Jill.

Tensions are currently high between France and the U.S. after Australia canceled a $66 billion submarine order in favor of a new defense pact with the U.S. and Britain. Macron recalled ambassadors to both the United States and Australia in response, igniting a heated international reaction. Biden has thus far refused to comment on the incident.
Biden recently by mumbling about Florida, Robert E. Lee, and Afghanistan all in one sentence:
President Donald Trump made headlines over the weekend with comments about President Joe Biden in which Trump said his easiest opponent for a boxing match would be Biden, who would go down “quickly” within “the first few seconds.” Biden responded over the weekend by mumbling, “I should be so lucky,” and mumbling about Robert E. Lee, Florida, and Afghanistan.
When asked about Trump’s comments during a visit to the 9/11 memorial, Biden responded, “You know, what what, what do you wanna do with Biden, I wanna box him, c’mon, c’mon, I should be so lucky. You know what I mean. But the kinds of things or, you know, stuff that’s coming out of Florida, stuff that’s coming out of you know, Robert E. lee had been in Afghanistan, he woulda won.”
