BODY LANGUAGE MUCH, JOE?
What Are You Hiding?
Supplemental to “36 Hours in Kyiv,” (Part One)
I hate to interrupt the “36 Hours in Kyiv” storyline with an add-on, but when something about Joe Biden covering up his dirty dealings jumps out at me, I have to highlight it.
And on this one I’ll be brief. But look again at the video of Joe Biden’s 2018 discussion at the Council of Foreign Relations and specifically at minute 53:46 when he explains his role in the 2017 Obama White House handoff to the Trump administration.
Now I’m no behavioral psychologist/body language expert, but don’t you agree with me that Joe’s posture — arms folded across his chest — goes from open and confident to full blown defensive at the exact instant he brings up his dealings with Vice President Pence?
That’s what I see, and it made me sit up and notice. In my six years working with Joe, I watched him on stage in front of audiences countless times. Whether the gathering is large or small (these days mostly small,) Joe handles himself with the polish of a TV game show host. He’s amiable, confident, and relentlessly self-promotional.
Yet here he is — arms folded defensively — like someone with something to hide. If you’re conducting a job interview and you ask the candidate to describe their experience with their previous employer, and that’s the body language they exhibit, you definitely want to check their references thoroughly. Because it’s quite obvious from their posture, they are covering something up.
And that’s exactly what Joe did on that stage at three other earlier instances — at 22:55 when discussing Vladimir Putin’s corruption and net worth; at 40:22 when discussing Russia’s future in Syria; and at 44:14 when discussing his personal relationship with Xi Jinping.
And from what Hunter’s Laptop has revealed, Joe’s actual dealings with both China and Russia have been nowhere near open and honest, so I’m not surprised he crossed his arms over his chest when discussing those topics.
It’s also noteworthy he adopts that posture in front of an audience that’s as congenial and nonthreatening as he may ever face. So it’s something in his thinking, not the audience’s reaction to it, that triggers his defensiveness.
Understand also that the time period Joe is addressing when he adopts his defensive posture at minute 53:46 is also the time period which includes the January 5th, 2017, Oval Office meeting in which Joe, Obama, and others are, according to Sally Yates’ August 2020 testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, discussing the FBI investigation of General Mike Flynn. Joe is alleged to have brought up the Logan Act during that meeting. He and Obama have denied they influenced the FBI investigation. But John Durham’s grand jury investigation has developed some evidence that may yet explain Joe’s defensiveness.
Like I said, I’m no body language expert, but there’s something sketchy going on here with Joe. No doubt in my mind on that.
