Joe Biden on Thursday met with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta in the Oval Office at the White House.
Kenyatta, just like Joe Biden, is facing family corruption allegations.
“Kenyatta and six relatives recently were exposed in the so-called Pandora Papers leak as owners of 13 offshore companies, one of which holds $30 million in assets.” The New York Post reported.
Biden relied on notecards and still struggled to make it through his talking points.
“Thank you for your leadership in defending the peace, security, and democratic instincts of the region and your country. You’re doing a heck of a job,” Biden laughably told Kenyatta.
The two discussed Covid-19 vaccines and efforts to advance peace and security and defend human rights.
Joe Biden cracked awkward jokes: “Kenya is currently the president of the UN Security Council, thanks for letting us stay in,” Biden said once again coming from a place of weakness.
Biden told Kenyatta that the US will be sending 17 million more doses of the Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine to the African Union.

Neither of them took questions from reporters.
