Members and users of social media are curious why President Joe Biden uses a fake White House to make speeches and broadcast meetings. The White House is right across the street.
Biden was mocked by some of them for using the fake set that shows the Rose Garden in bloom on a digital monitor.
Jack Posobiec, Senior Editor at Human Events tweeted “Truman Show Presidency”.
“Do they not allow him in the actual White House?” New Hampshire journalist Kimberly Morin wondered.
The reason Biden uses this bizarre virtual set for televised meetings—and not an actual room like East Room, Cabinet, Oval, Roosevelt, Sit Room, etc.—is because it allows him to read a script directly from a face-on monitor (& w/out teleprompter glass that can be seen on camera). https://t.co/Uc4Ly9kL7T— Stephen Miller (@StephenM) October 6, 2021
Stephen Miller, a former aide to President Donald Trump, tweeted that Biden uses a bizarre virtual set for televised meetings — not an actual room such as East Room, Cabinet Oval Roosevelt, Sit Room, etc. It allows him to view a script from a face-on screen (and without the teleprompter glasses that can be seen on video).
Others wondered if Biden would be able to address the public on a fake set, but that didn’t stop them.
“Why did the White House build a literal game show set complete with fake windows for Joe Biden,” Abigail Marone, press secretary for Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, asked in a tweet. “So weird.”
More double standards
David Marcus highlighted another example of media double standards in reaction to the revelation.
“Remember the Trump green screen scandal?” he tweeted. “Now Biden gives speeches on a set made of Legos and nobody is remotely curious.”

Biden even invited others to join the delusion. The set was also used by Biden’s Ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas Greenfield, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.
