SOTU Hot Mic Video: Biden Boasts He Told Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu “You and I Are Going to Have a ‘Come to Jesus’ Moment” | The Gateway Pundit | by Kristinn Taylor

Catholic Joe Biden, still amped up on carbs (according to the White House) after giving a sharply partisan State of the Union address Thursday night, was caught on a hot mic on C-SPAN boasting that he told Jewish Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “You and I are going to have a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting.”

Catholic Joe Biden, still amped up on carbs (according to the White House) after giving a sharply partisan State of the Union address Thursday night, was caught on a hot mic on C-SPAN boasting that he told Jewish Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “You and I are going to have a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting.”

Biden has pressured Israel to allow fuel and “humanitarian aid” into Gaza, thereby prolonging the war by supplying Hamas. In his State of the Union address, Biden said he would order U.S. troops to build a pier on the coast of Gaza to deliver aid directly to the Palestinians even though they are still holding Americans hostage.

Biden was speaking to Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), who had commented about the need for humanitarian aid for Gaza, while Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg listened in. An aide stepped up to warn Biden he was on a hot mic, but Biden was not worried.

Biden, whispering: “I told him, Bibi, and don’t repeat this, but you and I are going to have a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting.” (Biden laughs.)

Aide: “Sir, just, just, you’re on a hot mic.”

Biden, laughing: “I’m on a hot mic here. Good. That’s good.”

Blinken, who is Jewish, smiled at Biden’s comment.

Biden says Netanyahu needs ‘come to Jesus moment’ in hot-mic snafu after State of the Union

President Biden said he has told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he needed a “come to Jesus” talk about the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. Biden, 81, made the awkward comment about the Jewish state’s head of government while asking Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.)

Kamala Harris was asked about Biden’s statement by ABC News reporter Mary Bruce on Friday. Harris said of Biden, “He meant what he said. Some of us grew up in communities where having a ‘come to Jesus’ talk is about having a serious talk based on candor.”

UPDATE: Biden accused reporters of eavesdropping on him:

Q: “Why does Mr. Netanyahu need a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting?”

BIDEN (confused): “I didn’t say that in the speech.”

Q: “What about after?”

BIDEN: “You guys eavesdropping on things!”
