President Joe Biden convened a meeting of the National Security Council as the Russia-Ukraine crisis churns on and efforts to prevent a predicted invasion of the strife-torn former Soviet country continue with the news breaking that he is willing to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in a high-stakes summit to avert what would be a bloody war.

The White House announced the latest developments via a statement issued on Sunday night that Biden was willing to sit down with the Russian leader as long as the invasion has not taken place.

“As the President has repeatedly made clear, we are committed to pursuing diplomacy until the moment an invasion begins,” press secretary Jen Psaki said. “President Biden accepted in principle a meeting with President Putin following that engagement, again, if an invasion hasn’t happened.”

Psaki’s update came after the White House tweeted out an image of the POTUS along with his advisors including, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, the “woke” combo whose mastery of military strategy will be an essential resource if the U.S. is dragged into a potential conflict.

However, instead of the grave atmosphere of a president in a time of historic crisis that the White House was trying to present, many on Twitter were quick to point out the staged nature of the image, particularly as they were all masked-up and all of the nameplates of those in attendance were facing the camera.

“Good thing they turned all the name stands towards the camera so everyone gets credit,” remarked one Twitter user.

Another user wrote, “C’mon guys, you can fit a few more incompetents in this room…plenty of eligible name plates to stage in the center of the desk!”

Former Trump campaign adviser Steve Cortes mocked the WH image, writing, “Look at this masked clown show,” jabbing “White Rage Milley,” “Spied-on-Trump Jake Sullivan” and “Raytheon’s own Lloyd Austin.”

“God help us…,” he added.

Other responses poured in:

On Friday, Biden held a press conference where he told reporters that he was convinced that Putin had already made the decision to invade Ukraine, making the need for an increased focus on diplomacy all the more important.

Despite the possibility of a devastating war, the saber-rattling over Ukraine has provided Biden with a welcome distraction from his failure on multiple fronts, first and foremost the economy with the highest inflation rate in decades as well as his ongoing failure to defeat COVID, something that he vowed to do on the campaign trail and the longer that the crisis drags on, the better for him and his fellow Democrats.
