The Monday following the massacre in Israel, the Biden White House called a lid before noon. The White House assured that Biden didn’t have a public event but was working hard after it was learned Hamas was holding several Americans hostage.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates said, “For those unfamiliar, a ‘lid’ is just a courtesy announcement to reporters that they should not expect public events. A lid does *not* mean the President has stopped working, as is implied in the *Fox* tweet below. On the contrary, he’s working to support Israel all day.”

“The President has been interviewed as part of the investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Hur. The voluntary interview was conducted at the White House over two days, Sunday and Monday, and concluded Monday,” White House Counsel spokesperson Ian Sams said in a statement.
“As we have said from the beginning, the President and the White House are cooperating with this investigation, and as it has been appropriate, we have provided relevant updates publicly, being as transparent as we can consistent with protecting and preserving the integrity of the investigation. We would refer other questions to the Justice Department at this time,” Sams continued.
On top of that, conservative commentator and editor of Human Events Jack Posobiec made a shocking claim.
WH Staffer: Biden keeps bringing up Ukraine during briefings on Israel, he’s getting the 2 wars mixed up. Austin barely showing up to them anymore, Blinken making more decisions than anyone
