The propagandists in the media continue to push that Biden is “devout” Catholic.
This, of course, doesn’t line up with reality.
Biden’s agenda attacks religious liberty.
Biden is pro-abortion.
Biden is corrupt.
The media was waiting for Biden’s first meeting with the Pope.
According to the Catholic League, he was stiffed by the Vatican.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue congratulated the Vatican Thursday for rebuffing attempts by the White House to exploit a Francis-Biden meeting for political purposes.
The Biden administration “was banking on posting pictures of the two men grinning and shaking hands,” Donohue writes in reference to a meeting between the pope and Biden slated for Saturday.
“But now the Vatican has thrown a monkey wrench into this opportunistic gambit,” he adds. “The media have been mostly barred from covering the meeting.”
The Vatican announced Thursday that there will be no live coverage of Biden greeting the pope and that no media will be allowed to cover the two men sitting down to begin their conversation.
“In other words, the optics that the White House was counting on are dead in the water,” Donohue states.
Here are the full comments from the Catholic League:
VATICAN STIFFS BIDEN
Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on tomorrow’s meeting between the pope and the president:
Yesterday, I issued a statement saying the White House is out to milk the meeting between Pope Francis and President Biden. They need to. Biden is in trouble with the bishops at home—he adamantly rejects core Catholic moral teachings—and his administration was banking on posting pictures of the two men grinning and shaking hands. But now the Vatican has thrown a monkey wrench into this opportunistic gambit. The media have been mostly barred from covering the meeting.
The Vatican has said that there will be no live coverage of Biden greeting the pope. Nor will the media be allowed to cover the two men sitting down as they begin their conversation. In other words, the optics that the White House was counting on are dead in the water.
Usually, the media film an exchange of gifts between the pope and a head of state in the pope’s library; a recording of what they say is also provided. Not this time. Only select professionals, chosen by the Vatican, will be permitted.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki knows what this means and is not a happy camper. She chided the Vatican, saying, “We believe in the value of a free press.”
If the White House valued a free press, why does the president rarely hold a press conference? Why does he habitually duck the press when boarding a helicopter? Why does the vice president run from the press? Why, when they were running for office, did they refuse to do any of the Sunday talk shows? Why did Biden hide in his basement?
Kudos to the Vatican. They know when they are being used.
Photos from the event sure don’t make Biden look great:
