President Biden has boasted that the reason he snubbed King Charles III’s coronation on Saturday was because he’s ‘more important than Royalty’ and thus has a really busy schedule.
In a softball interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, Biden declared: ‘I told him I couldn’t be there because I have this going on.’
Biden said that he told the king that he would be in the UK during the summer and that would be Charles’ chance to greet him.

‘He’s a good acquaintance and we’ve worked together on environmental issues,’ Biden said of King Charles III.
Dailymail.co.uk reports: The president dispatched his wife to represent the US at the celebrations in London. No American president has ever attended a British coronation. First Lady Jill Biden’s first stop was a meeting with Akshata Murty, the wife of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
During the MSNBC interview, his first since February’s sit down with PBS Newshour, Biden was asked why voters should choose the octogenarian.
‘I have acquired a hell of a lot of wisdom. And know more than the vast majority of people – I’m more experienced than anybody who has ever run for the office. And I think I’ve proven myself to be honorable as well as also effective,’ he bragged.
Biden’s likely opponent in 2024, ex-President Donald Trump, earlier expressed his disgust that the president was not making the trip across the pond.
‘Certainly, he should be here as our representative of our country. I was very surprised, I think it’s very disrespectful for him not to be here,’ the former Apprentice host told GB News.
Trump went on to accuse Biden of not being physically well enough to make the journey to the UK. ‘He’s got a lot of things going, a lot of strange things happened,’ the twice impeached president added.
