Antony Blinken chuckles as Republican senator makes Joe Biden mute button claims – video

The Republican senator Jim Risch pressed the secretary of state, Antony Blinken, over rumours someone in the White House has the ability to cut off the president’s microphone when he speaks. While Blinken chuckled throughout the questioning, Risch continued to press his claims after an earlier video from the White House featuring Biden cut off during a briefing. ‘It’s been widely reported that somebody has the ability to push the button and cut off his sound and stop him from speaking,’ Risch said. 

Blinken replied: ‘Anyone who knows the president, including members of this committee, knows that he speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself’
