As Madeline reported on Friday, President Joe Biden claimed that Pope Francis told him he’s a “good Catholic” and should “keep receiving Communion.” We’ll just have to take Biden’s word for it, because the Vatican cut the live feed at the last minute. As it was revealed, according to Jack Posobiec during his “Human Events Daily” podcast posted Friday night, the Vatican wasn’t having the White House’s demands about how the meeting was supposed to be staged.

Many news outlets reported in their coverage of the Vatican’s move that it did so without explanation. David Rutz, writing for Fox News, pointed out that “White House press fumes over restricted access to Biden meeting with Pope Francis.” Quoting a member of the White House Advance Team, who provided the podcast with an exclusive, Posobiec explained that: “The White House Advance Team and Vatican Advance Team had last minute disagreement over shooting angles, moving in for sound bites, cut off time for live footage, and a plethora of other choreography-related issues.” And I said, ‘what did you mean?’

Advance Team One had soundbites. Biden had a few lines memorized and they wanted the Pope to say something specific in response to those lines. Plus specific camera angles. It was supposed to be playing it up for Catholic America. The Vatican said ‘you’ll get what you’ll get but we aren’t going to do these movie sequel scenes.’ Advance Team said no. Vatican said ‘fine, no live footage at all.’ Obviously something that should have been brought up in advance. He was going to thank Francis for praying for America, and then Biden was going to say that he’s working hard to bring prayer back into the American way of life in the midst of these trying times. He was also going to tell Francis his favorite verse, and all that soundbite stuff. They were hoping that Francis, then, would say something in response to him that could be seen as the Pope’s endorsement of Biden as a true Catholic.

It also came up that Pope Francis has consistently clarified that abortion is murder and the Catholic Church is unequivocally against abortion. The Pope made these remarks on abortion last month when asked about the issue. On Friday, after meeting with the Pope, President Joe Biden’s official Twitter account communicated support for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe, citing the issue of abortion.
