Joe Biden red faced as live feed CUT OFF amid White House briefing.

The awkward moment Joe Biden's live feed was cut off by the White House staff just after he offered to take questions from lawmakers.

The US president, accompanied by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, had been speaking to House Democrats about the coronavirus pandemic and the vaccine rollout.

In the virtual event with the House Democratic Caucus on Wednesday, Biden closed his remarks by calling on Democrats to help "restore faith" in the government.

"I'd be happy to take questions if that's what I'm supposed to do, Nance," Biden told the Speaker.

"Whatever you want me to do."

The livestream ended seconds later after a brief pause from Biden.

Biden has increasingly come under fire for not holding a formal press conference and taking questions from reporters in the six weeks since taking office.

The rare instances where the US president does take questions are often limited to a pool of pre-selected reporters.

It comes after a new book claimed the strategy of the Biden administration was to "put your dumb uncle in the basement" - protecting his campaign from its biggest liability, the candidate himself.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the White House said Biden hoped Americans would continue to follow coronavirus guidelines even as some states, including Texas, lift restrictions.

The Biden administration has tried to push back against the easing of restrictions, warning that now is not the time to stop being vigilant.

Asked if he had a message to Texas and Mississippi, Biden told reporters: "I think it's a big mistake. Look, I hope everybody's realized by now, these masks make a difference."
