On Wednesday at the end of a virtual event with top House Democrats, when President Joe Biden offered to take questions, the video feed cut out.
“I’m happy to take questions, if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance. Whatever you want me to do,” said the president, who appeared to be unsure of whether there was a question-and-answer portion of the House Democratic Caucus Virtual Issues Conference.
After a few seconds of Biden waiting, his video feed cuts out and his window displays the White House logo.
It is unclear if this was intentional, unintentional, or some sort of technical mishap.
As The Washington Examiner pointed out, this ending was removed from the video-on-demand version of the event. In the video of Biden’s full remarks on YouTube, the video ends after the president says, “So I want to thank you all. I really mean it from the bottom — I want to thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
However, in the White House’s official transcript of Biden’s remarks at the event, it includes Biden saying at the end that he was happy to take questions.
The event featured high-ranking House Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), Whip Jim Clyburn (S.C.), and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.) discussing their legislative agenda in the House of Representatives. Additionally, Vice President Kamala Harris delivered remarks at the virtual event.
Biden’s roughly nine-minute remarks touched on issues ranging from COVID-19 economic relief and his American Rescue Plan to criminal justice reform and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.
Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.
Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”
Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”
When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”
“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.
Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
