CNN’s White House correspondent, M.J. Lee, posed a question to President Biden insinuating House Republicans’ responsibility for the death of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, leading to criticism of both Lee and CNN’s journalistic integrity.

Biden’s response avoided directly blaming Republicans but criticized their stance on Russia.

“Mr. President, would you go so far as to say that Alexei Navalny’s blood is on the hands of House Republicans right now?” CNN’s M.J. Lee asked.

“I wouldn’t use that term,” Biden said.

“They’re making a big mistake not responding. Look, the way they’re walking away from the threat of Russia, the way they’re walking away from NATO, the way they’re walking away from meeting our obligations — it’s just stunning. I mean … I’ve never seen anything like this.”

The incident increased concerns about Biden’s perceived weaknesses in foreign policy and CNN’s credibility as a news source, with social media users pointing out the biased nature of the question.

Critics have called out Biden’s perceived weaknesses on various fronts and suggested a lack of global respect for his leadership.
