It has been well over six weeks of the Biden Presidency and there’s still one MAJOR thing missing.
A President-led press conference.
Usually President’s hold their own press conferences where they take questions from the media directly.
So far, the Biden Administration has kept their own President quiet.
Both President Obama and President Trump spoke around one month after being inaugurated directly to the press.
Since Biden has yet to, he and his staff have received major criticism.
Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has spoken out regarding this issue.
McEnany called Biden’s silence both “extraordinary” however “not unprecedented.”
“You’ll recall… the ‘basement strategy’ is what he employed on the campaign trail. He went something like 50 days and he only took questions twice. And when he did, they were hand-picked questions,” she told Fox News host Stuart Varney.
“I don’t think this is President Biden saying, ‘I don’t want to do this,’” Kayleigh continued and said.
“I think it’s those around him recognizing when he does speak, it doesn’t always turn out so well, like calling Republicans ‘Neanderthals,’ as he did recently in the Oval Office.”
McEnany believes that ultimately the call is made by his staff who fears that Biden can’t step up to the plate like Donald Trump did throughout his term.
“I think his staff does not have faith that he can stand at the podium and have a press conference the way President Trump did many times,” the former White House Press Secretary went on to say.
