Biden SHOWS UP for vegetarian G20 feast – after skipping trio of suppers with world leaders over past year


President Joe Biden made it to dinner in New Delhi Saturday night – after skipping a trio of meals with world leaders at summits over the past year.

Indian media captured the president entering the Bharat Mandapam convention center about 30 minutes after the dinner was supposed to begin Saturday evening, after spending the day in meetings at the G20 Leaders’ Summit.

He appeared to be the last guest to arrive.

Biden spent several minutes greeting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and India‘s President Droupadi Murmu, who was dressed in a sari and served as the dinner’s official host.

The guests, which also included Russia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, will be served a vegetarian meal that stars the grain millet – an important Indian crop.

Biden, 80, has gotten in the habit of skipping dinners with world leaders.

In July, he missed the leaders’ dinner as the NATO Summit convened in Vilnius, Lithuania.

A White House official said Biden RSVPed no for the dinner because he had ‘four full days of official business abroad, including back-to-back summit meetings and a major speech.’

The president caught some grief for skipping the dinner, which the White House pointed out was a social not a business event, because he had spent time at this Rehoboth Beach house directly before the trip.

Before that, in May, Biden left the a G7 leaders dinner early.

The leaders were gathered on Miyajima Island outside of Hiroshima, known for its iconic ‘floating’ torii gate and domesticated deer population.

The president stumbled as he walked down the stairs of the Itsukushima Shrine as he rushed to greet Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

The White House said it was the ‘plan’ for Biden to depart the dinner earlier than the other leaders due to the ongoing debt ceiling crisis back home.

Biden also truncated that trip abroad, as he was supposed to travel to Australia for the first time as U.S. president, but headed back to D.C. days early to deal with debt ceiling woes.
