During his press conference at the G7 Summit on Monday, President Joe Biden locked up when asked if he still considered Russian President Vladimir Putin to be a “killer.”
“You had called him a killer,” the reporter asserted while bringing up Biden’s past comments on Putin. “Is that still your belief, sir, that he is a killer?”
The reporter also asked a second question as Biden swayed back and forth.
“Answer the first question?” Biden asked. “I’m laughing too. Im actually… I… well look… I mean he has made clear that uh, uhhh…”
Biden then completely locked up and stared off into the distance with a completely blank look on his face.

Biden’s G7 Summit has been a total embarrassment for Biden. During his press conference on Sunday, Biden confused Libya and Syria three times at the G-7 Summit in Cornwall, United Kingdom.
The confusion came as Biden tried responding to a question from NBC News’ Peter Alexander who was asking about what his planned actions were against Russian President Vladimir Putin. Biden’s answer was completely embarrassing considering he confused Syria and Libya three different times.
“There is no guarantee you can change a person’s behavior or the behavior of their country. Autocrats have enormous power and they do not have to answer to a public,” Biden started. “The fact is that it may very well be if I respond in kind, which I will, that it does not dissuade him. He wants to keep going. But I think we’re gonna be moving in a direction where Russia has its own dilemmas, let us say, in dealing with its economy, dealing with — COVID, and dealing with, not only the United States, but Europe writ large and the Middle East.”
“There is a lot going on where we can work together with Russia. For example, in Libya, we should be opening up the passes to be able to go through and provide — food assistance — an economic, I mean — vital assistance to a population that is in real trouble. I think I’m gonna very hard — by the way there’s places where — I should not be starting off by negotiating in public here, but let me say it this way — Russia has engaged in activities which we believe are contrary to international norms,” he added.
“They have also bitten off some real problems they’re gonna have trouble chewing on. For example, the rebuilding of Syria, of Libya — you know, this is — they’re there and as long as they’re there without the ability to bring about some order in the region, you can’t do that very well without providing or the basic economic needs of people, so I am hopeful that we can find accommodation where we can save the lives of people in, for example, in Libya consistent with the interests of — may be far different reasons — but for the same reasons,” the president finished.
Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce unleashed on Biden in a tweet: “This is horrible. At some point his cognitive disfunction has to be considered a natl security threat if only because of the confidence it must give our enemies “President confuses Syria with Libya three times””
