After Biden delivered his remarks about the infrastructure bill, he also answered questions from the reporters on Thursday.
Biden suddenly gave everyone the creeps after whispering answers to reporters.
Then this happened.
While Biden is answering, Kamala Harris had to remind him to address the tragedy in Florida as Biden tried to flee the podium to ‘catch a helicopter.
Biden was asked about the condominium near Miami collapsed early Thursday morning.
Biden awkwardly laughed after Kamala Harris had to remind him to talk about the collapsed condo: “Oh yes, I apologize. Yes, thank you.”

Here’s an excerpt from USA Today reports:
A burning electrical smell filled the air and photos of missing people hung on a fence Friday night near the rubble of a 12-story beachfront condominium building that collapsed just north of Miami early Thursday morning. Nearly 160 people are still unaccounted for and at least four are dead.
Thick smoke coming from the remains of Champlain Towers South darkened the sky and made it difficult to breathe. Officials said a fire continued to burn underneath the rubble, despite efforts to put it out.
At a Friday night press conference, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said there had been no change in the number of missing people, but rescuers remained hopeful survivors could be found. Levine Cava said rescuers were encouraged to hear “knocking sounds” and that people have been found alive more than a week after similar collapses.
“We are still working. We are working around the clock, and we have hope,” Levine Cava said.
A wing of the residential building in Surfside, Florida, came down with a roar around 1:30 a.m. Thursday. On video footage captured from nearby, the center of the building appeared to fall first, with a section nearest the ocean teetering and coming down seconds later as a huge dust cloud swallowed the neighborhood.
