  • Will Biden ever do a solo press conference?

    Jen Psaki Is Asked When Biden Will Hold 'First Solo Presser', Her Answer Raises More Uncomfortable Questions

    AP Photo/Evan VucciIt has been over one month since Joe Biden was sworn in as the president of the United States.

    Since that time, Biden has made public statements here and there and held a few carefully controlled pressers with his handlers by his side, some of which included either reporters or questions that were pre-selected. He also participated in a predictably friendly town hall on CNN last week where he made some questionable claims that, of course, went mostly unchallenged by moderator and anchor Anderson Cooper.

    One thing Biden hasn’t done in the last month, however, is to hold a solo press conference with the White House press corps. As the pandemic continues on and as parts of the country are continuing to dig out from a brutal winter storm, two reporters went against the grain during today’s White House press briefing with press secretary Jen Psaki and asked when they’d get a chance to ask Biden himself some questions.

    CNN’s Kaitlan Collins got the first question in by first pointing out that “by this time in their presidencies, both President Trump and President Obama had held solo press conferences.” She then asked Psaki if there are “plans for President Biden to hold a solo press conference any time soon?”

    While Psaki confirmed he’d be holding a solo presser at some point, she told Collins an exact date had not yet been set. “He will hold a solo press conference,” Psaki stated. “But I don’t have a date for you at this point in time.”

    When Collins asked if it would be this week, Psaki told her, “not this week, no.”

    Another reporter followed up with Psaki and wondered out loud if it would be Biden who picked “the inquisitors” in the room who would get to question him at his first solo presser.

    “Will he get to pick the inquisitors himself?” the male reporter asked.

    Psaki claimed it was “typical” for a president to already have a list of people they’ll call on. “Usually it’s a large number of people who are in the press room. And we certainly hope we’ll be able to do that in a COVID-safe way,” she proclaimed before moving on to the next question.

    "He will hold a solo press conference… Not this week"

    When I first watched Psaki answer the questions, red flags jumped out all over the place. Considering everything that is going on in the country right now, why hasn’t the leader of the free world been out front and center giving assurances to the public on the pandemic and on the parts of the country that are digging out from the recent winter storm?

    Having a press conference where reporters ask questions about both issues would be a great way to start, but Biden’s been MIA. In fact, while reporters were bashing Sen. Ted Cruz last week for taking a trip with his family to Cancun, Biden called an early lid at 8 a.m. This was when DC had had a dusting of snow and ice.

    Why not do a virtual presser that day or the next instead of essentially taking snow days? I mean we’re in the middle of two ongoing crises. Where’s the leadership?

    As was the case when he ran for president, Biden’s heavy reliance on his handlers to pre-select reporters or to speak for him, and on his vice president to make calls to world leaders on his behalf will only continue to raise more questions as to just what’s going on and on just who might really be running this country.

    Psaki comes from a Greenwich snob family and William and Mary turns out a gang of liberals. Needs to be cut down to size quickly, sure there are some skeletons in her closet, athletic type, competitive swimming in college. An arrogant biatch.

        She is trying so hard to be the antithesis of white privilege, but she only ends up reinforcing it, with her crass, uppity, snobbish performance. Same M.O. with every lefty elitist marxist. They accuse others of what they have been guilty of themselves for a very long time.

        Creepy Sleepy China Joe will never do a solo presser. He can barely read a prepared speech off a teleprompter.

        Creepy Sleepy China Joe’s future is staff changing his diapers, watching re-runs of I Love Lucy & snacking on Rice Pudding.
        Liberalism is a serious mental disorder

          perhaps joebideng will have a solo presser when his implants are finished to tell him what to do, how to answer questions. in reality I don't see that happening unless all the questions come from cnn & pmsmsnbc.

              He'll never do a solo press conference, because the teleprompters will always be there with him.

                I worry what the stock market will do when the inevitable day comes whe Biden disintegrates live on TV and they have to hussle him off. It will make these last 2 awful days in the market look mild.
