President Biden was a guest on “Deadline: White House” on Thursday, and many heads were turned, what many would call “baffling.” Within the first minute of being on air, it appeared as though he was ready to sign off, saying,” Well, it’s been an honor to meet with you,” and then shook hands with the host. He tumbled through the interview, saying, “There’s still a lot of good Republicans. I think Mitt Romney. There’s a lot of them”. Then while the show was live, Biden walked off-set, prompting the host to cut to a commercial.
THE U.S. SUN: BYE-DEN! Joe Biden baffles viewers with latest gaffe on live TV at the end of MSNBC interview segment with host Nicolle Wallace

IN what many viewers may describe as baffling, President Joe Biden was seen abruptly leaving an interview with MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace on Thursday.
She joked: “This show. We’re like the Hotel California where you can check out but never leave.”
When Biden responded, it appeared as if he was starting to close off the conversation, saying: “Well, it’s been an honor to meet with you, I really mean it.”
Wallace and Biden then shook hands as the host said: “We’re really grateful… to be continued.”
But Biden didn’t stop there.
He added: “There’s still a lot of good Republicans. I think Mitt Romney. There’s a lot of them.”
“Not Mitt, but others have come to me, since I’ve been elected… now it’s six Republican Senators. Two came at one time and the other four alone… Tell me, ‘Joe, I agree with you but I’ve I’m seen, doing it, I’ll lose the primary.'”
It’s difficult to understand what exactly he tried to say immediately after that.”
He continued: “You know me, I’m an eternal optimist. I still think there’s going to come a moment when they’re going to be able to break.
“And by the way, remember when I said we could still do bipartisan things and they said we couldn’t do it? Well, we didn’t get a lot but we got a lot of bipartisan things done.”
Wallace chimed in: “And now they’re running on your bipartisan accomplishments.”
As Biden laughed, he responded while leaning back in his chair, “Like I said, I’m going to be down there to congratulate him.”
He then appeared to say he’s going to be a President for everyone whether they voted for him or not, however, as Wallace begins talking again, Biden is seen getting up from his chair, only for her to thank him for his time.
Biden then reached his hand out and shook her hand before walking off, leaving Wallace on air and having to cut to a commercial break.
As the 80-year-old President casually walked off the set, Wallace told her audience, “Don’t go anywhere.”
The approximate 20-minute interview was live on air and usually, the host of the news show ends the segment.
Social media users have since taken to Twitter to comment on the uncommon walk-off, with some saying the interview was clearly coming to an end, and others considering he walked off mid-interview because he didn’t wait until the commercial break.
One person wrote: “What on earth is Biden doing? It’s live TV!”
Another asked: “Bathroom run? Biden gets out of his seat before the commercials start and awkwardly walks off-set.”
Meanwhile, from falling asleep to calling his own country the “United Steak Of America,” The Sun has revealed Joe Biden’s biggest gaffes.
And earlier this year, Biden stumbled up the steps of Air Force One for the second time in two weeks as he left the Montgomery base in Alabama.
