President Biden was asked to wipe a yellow stain from his face at a Zoom meeting with Western governors on Friday after a staff handed him a note that read, “Sir, there’s something on your chin.”

Biden was talking about reactions to the raging wildfires across the country when an aide handed him a map.

It warned the president that there had been something on his face for about the first 10 minutes of his virtual meeting.

Biden had a yellow dot under his mouth, but kept talking. He was then handed a note asking him to wipe his chin and look at his hand.

“The threat of wildfires in the west this year is as serious as ever,” Biden said, oblivious to what was written on his chin.

“Basically, we have large complex wildfires burning across multiple areas,” he added.

“It’s really, really dangerous work,” Biden said of the firefighters.

He asked the lineup of governors, including California’s Gavin Newsom, Washington’s Jay Inslee, and Minnesota’s Tim Walz, for updates on the fires in their states and what the federal government can do to help.

Sometimes his aides will step in when Biden starts answering questions from the press, risking going off-script.

It is not clear what was written on his face.
