BREAKING NEWS – Rome, Italy – President Biden is scheduled to meet with Pope Francis I, and while the encounter was originally set to be broadcast live, that will no longer be the case as the Vatican canceled those plans without providing a reason.

It has been common practice for the Vatican to have live television broadcasts when heads of state visit. The Vatican said that rather than have live coverage, it will provide media outlets with edited footage of the meeting after it has concluded.

According to an unnamed source at the Vatican, the Pope said he prayed to Mary, and she told him that Biden was the stupidest man on the planet, thus the meeting should be edited for the president’s sake. Pope Francis I then added that Mary’s suggestion was further affirmed when he was told the exact same thing from nuns, and both predator and non-predator priests.
