“It was long and loud”: Joe Biden allegedly farts in front of royalty after appearing to doze off at COP26

As world leaders gather to discuss climate change in Glasgow for the COP26, one high-profile attendee was not only caught falling asleep, but rumour has it he also let rip in front of a royal.

We are talking, of course, about US President Joe Biden, who seems to have lived up to the nickname his foul former political opponent, Donald Trump, coined for him – “Sleepy Joe”– after he was caught on camera appearing to doze off during opening remarks at the highly anticipated meeting.

Footage showed the 78-year-old leader fighting to keep his eyes open while listening to disability rights activist Eddie Ndopu, before an aide taps his shoulder and whispers in his ear, appearing to jolt him awake.

 

Apparently, on the same day, a source revealed that Biden let go of a colossal fart while speaking with Camilla Parker-Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, according to the NZ Herald.

The two met during a reception hosted at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, which was also attended by Prince Charles, Prince William and Boris Johnson.

“It was long and loud and impossible to ignore,” the source reportedly said.

“Camilla hasn’t stopped talking about it.”

It is currently unclear if Scott Morrison also attended the event, but rumour has it the Australian Prime Minister was spotted milling about by the snack table after being blanked by all other attendees once again.
