Gina McCarthy, White House National climate Advisor, stated Tuesday morning that President Joe Biden was woken after he was allegedly caught snoozing in a session at the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow Monday afternoon.  

She said that the president was awake and energized when she saw him yesterday. “He’s really excited to see the United States in action right here in Glasgow.”    

Brzezinski did not ask McCarthy about the viral video of Biden, in which he appeared to be sleeping while another speaker stressed the importance of climate action.   

He opened his eyes and seemed to liven up when a body man approached him to talk.  

The 78-year-old Biden then sat forward and rubbed his eyes as Italy’s prime minister took the stage. 

The apparent cat nap caught the attention conservative critics online. Former President Donald Trump had called Biden “Sleepy Joe” during the 2020 campaign.

After seeing photos of Biden snoozing, Trump stated that even Biden couldn’t bear to hear so much about the Global Warming Hoax. 

‘… was closely followed by Russia, Russia and Russia, Ukraine. Ukraine, Ukraine. Impeachment Hoax #1 & #2 and, ofcourse, the “No Collusion” finding in the Mueller Report. 

“Biden went on a trip to Europe stating that Global Warming is his greatest priority. Then he fell asleep, for the entire world to see at the Conference. True enthusiasm and belief in a subject is never lost! 

Biden, Monday, April 26 He addressed the audience to warn about the impending doom wrought by climate change. 

He stated that climate change was already ravaging the planet. It’s not a hypothetical idea. 

The president called climate changes “the existential danger to human existence as it is now.” 

Biden said, “This is an important decade in which there is an opportunity to prove ourself,” ‘We can keep the goal of limiting global warming to just 1.5° C if we come together.’ 

‘We’re still falling short. There is no time to stoop or sit on the fence, or argue amongst yourselves. This is a challenge that will be faced over our collective lifetimes. ‘Glasgow must be the kick-off of a decade of ambition & innovation to preserve our shared future.’

In a separate speech at conference, the president took aim at Donald Trump. Biden stated that Trump had pulled the US out the Paris Climate Agreement. “I shouldn’t apologize, but I do apologize.”  

Biden ended his speech by saying, “God bless all of you and may God save the earth.” 

Although the time limit for speakers was three minutes, Biden’s remarks were over 11 minutes. 

At the beginning of the speech, a digital timer began. After each minute, a sound chime was sounded. During Biden’s remarks, the chime went off eight more times.

Since he assumed office, President Joe Biden’s fitness and health have been under scrutiny.

His performance in interviews, particularly a car accident appearance with ABC on Afghanistan, August, and his coughing during speeches, has been questioned. 

Last week, White House press secretary Jen Psaki called out NBC News Kelly O’Donnell for always asking about Joe Biden’s health, as she deflected questions from another reporter about when the president will undergo a physical.

Brian Karem, Playboy’s White House correspondent and CNN’s political analyst, asked Psaki questions about the long-awaited results from Biden’s next check-up at the close Tuesday’s briefing.

He said, “Hey Jen! Will he take a physical anytime soon? And report it to American public?”

Psaki replied simply, “He will”.

When she was asked if it would happen this year, her response was: “Kelly always asks about this.” She’s keeping us on our toes.’

Since December 2019, there has been no update from the president regarding a medical report.

Biden’s mental and physical health have been questioned since his inauguration.

Psaki reiterated her previous promise that the administration would be transparent about the results of its physical once the president receives one – which she said in May was before the 2021 end – as she had previously stated.

Biden has had two brain aneurysms in the past and a heart condition that makes the muscle beat too fast. This causes dizziness, confusion, and dizziness.

MailOnline was informed by a top cardiologist back in August that both conditions can be linked to memory problems and confusion as well as dementia. 

Boris Johnson warned Cop26 delegates that the longer it takes for climate change to be addressed, the higher the price will be when a catastrophe’ forces world leadership to act.

Johnson said that the world was in a similar position to James Bond as he attempts to deactivate the doomsday device in one of his films. He said, however, that this was not a movie and that the doomsday device was real.

Greta Thunberg used a phrase to warn that the Paris Agreement promises to limit global temperature increases would be ‘nothing except blahblahblah’ and that the world’s anger will be uncontained unless Cop26 is the moment they get serious about climate change. 

Thunberg recently lambasted Britain and other nations for making empty promises and words. He accused them of promising too many ‘blah, blah, blah’ rather than taking any action. 

Thunberg spoke at the climate demonstration near the summit. 

‘No more blah blah blah, no more whatever the f*** they are doing inside there,’ she said at Festival Park, Glasgow on Monday. 

“Inside Cop” is a collection of politicians and people who pretend to take our future seriously and pretend to take the present seriously. The only way to bring about change is from the inside. That is not leadership. This is leadership. We say no more blah-blah blah, no further exploitation of people or the planet.

Biden arrived in Scotland Monday morning and immediately climbed into his massive motorcade to travel to the climate summit. He plans to highlight American leadership in tackling carbon emissions after spending the weekend in Rome, where he met with Pope Francis and other leaders.

After a short flight from Rome in Air Force One, his convoy of over 20 vehicles and its gas-guzzling engine will draw new criticisms for hypocrisy.

At the G20 Rome, he used a 85-vehicle convoy that included vans for journalists, secret services and officials as well as ambulances, communications systems, and also included vans to transport them. 

Johnson, the British prime minster, and U.S. Secret General Antonio Guterres greeted him when he arrived at conference center. The leaders exchanged warm smiles, elbow bumps, and warm hugs. 

The presidents of key polluters Russia and China are not attending the talks and India has said it will not be changing its reliance on coal any time soon.  

Today, Biden will release a detailed plan to reduce carbon emissions by half by the end of this decade, as compared to 2005 levels. 

He plans to launch a program to raise $3 billion per year to assist developing countries adapt to climate changes.

His national security advisor used the suggestions to challenge other nations.

Jake Sullivan, a passenger on Air Force One en route towards Edinburgh, stated that “So the US is stepping in to do its bit key.” 

Allies Japan, Korea and Canada are taking action to help their fellow Americans. 

“And now, the question is: Will some other countries step up and do theirs?” 

Biden arrived at the G20 summit in Rome, where he spoke out about America’s power by’showing it up’ 

“What we’ve seen again in Rome is what I believe is the power and effectiveness of America showing up, working with our partners and allies to make progress on issues that matter to us all,” he stated, adding that allies want ‘American leadership to get things done. 

Biden used a cheat sheet of reporters ‘pre-approved’ again to hold a press conference after the conclusion of the G20 summit.

A shocking new poll has revealed that 44% want Joe Biden to be replaced on the ticket by 2024. 

44% of left-leaning voters want a different Democratic presidential candidate in 2024. They believe that a different candidate would have a better chance than current President Joe Biden.

A Monday NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist National poll found that 36% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents believe their party has a better chance of putting Biden at top of the ticket for another term.

Twenty percent say they are unsure.

Half of Republicans said that Trump is more likely to win in 2024 than any other GOP presidential candidate.

Another 35% said they believe someone else would be a better candidate to win the White House in 2024. 14% of Republicans and right-leaning voters stated they are unsure.

Trump has not announced whether he will be running in 2024, but he has made strong indications that he will after the 2022 midterms. Either way the majority of Democrats and left-leaning voters believe that a different candidate has a better chance of beating Biden.

Biden stated in his 2020 campaign, that he was not running to serve one term.

The president’s approval rating is dropping as Democrats prepare for the 2022 midterms, where they will try to retain their slim margins of control of the House and Senate – and possibly increase their majorities.

As he opened the floor to questions at the beginning, the president seemed pre-arranged to call on a list of correspondents.

“And now, I’m willing to answer some questions. Biden stated that he was told to start with AP, Zeke Miller.

The Associated Press is the preferred pecking order for administration. 

Biden claimed that other leaders sought him as he fended away a robbery. 




Question about whether he is capable of leading in the face of falling poll numbers at home.

Biden stated, “The United States of America, is the most crucial part of this whole agenda, and it was done,” 

Skeptics claim that there were not enough concrete measures to limit the world’s temperature rise to 1.5 C above preindustrial levels, which was the target set by the Paris climate summit in 2015.

Biden’s Build Back Better agenda included key clean energy pledges. This was the price he paid to win over his own party members at the huge $3.5 trillion cost. 

The Supreme Court could still strip his administration of additional powers to limit emissions.

Then there’s the awkward matter his travel arrangements.

His trip to Europe is expected to release 2.2 Million Pounds of carbon.  

The enormous carbon footprint is made up of 2.16 million pounds carbon dioxide from the four large planes that make up his airborne entourage during the trip to Italy, Scotland, and where the president will speak at COP26 in Glasgow. The remainder is emitted by Biden’s cars. 

His fleet consists of the modified Boeing 747 that he uses to travel, Air Force One (when the president is aboard), an identical decoy, two large C-17 Globemasters to transport his battalion, cars and helicopters.

Biden’s climate adviser Gina McCarthy stated that reporters should expect to hear more on American leadership.    

He stated that the message he was going to send to the world was “The United States is back at The Table, We’re Back, Hoping to Reunite the World to Address the Climate Crisis” in the next two days.

She stated that the U.S. would release an action plan to reduce carbon emissions by half by 2023 compared to 2005 levels, in order to reach its net-zero goal by 2050. 

She stated that the U.S. could meet its global climate obligations within three decades by electrifying transportation and buildings and decarbonizing the power sector. It also transforms industry and reduces non-CO2 emissions.

John Kerry, special climate envoy, also rebutted criticisms that COP 26 was not getting off to a good start. There was little progress on the Rome 1.5C target. 

He stated that 65 percent of the world’s GDP was committed to the effort. 

He stated, “Obviously, if you have at least 65% in, you get 35% out, and that’s what’s coming out of Glasgow.” 

“Can these countries step up?” What speed will they move? What are they going to do over the next few years?

Boris Johnson (British prime minister) was the Summit host and lambasted G20 leaders Sunday, claiming only 12 of them had promised concrete action to reach net zero emissions by 2020. 

According to speech excerpts released to his office, he will likely say, “Humanity long since runs down the clock on Climate Change,” during Monday’s session’s opening. 

“It’s only one minute until midnight, and we must act immediately.”
