This is a virtual meeting with world leaders. They are literally thousands of miles apart. Joe Biden has been vaccinated.
E N H A N C E:
This meeting was a climate summit hosted by the White House.
This is 100% political theater, like everything else the inauthentic Left stages these days.
The rest of the photo also has some fun elements to consider. For example, Putin is sitting there wondering how in the heck the USSR lost to America considering what America has now become:
Emperor Xi is just sitting back, knowing he doesn't need to listen to this climate stuff because he's probably going to built a hundred new coal plants next year and staff them with Uyghur slaves:
Canada's Justin Trudeau is carefully reviewing which liberties to take away from his subjects next week:
And Italy's Mario Draghi just looks straight-up bored:
What a time to be alive...
*Editor's note: The original version of this implied that Biden was the only world leader wearing a mask, but USA Today notes the following:
A review of additional photos and videos from the summit reveals Biden was not the only leader at the summit wearing a mask.
Images taken by Lee Jin-wook for Yonhap News Agency show all 40 screens, in which Argentinian President Alberto Fernández, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and Prime Minister of Bhutan Lotay Tshering are seen wearing masks.
In another photo from Li Xiang for Xinhua News, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, Suga and Biden are captured wearing masks on the first day of the summit.
