Joe Biden has done his best to avoid the media as much as possible during his first few months in office.
But when he does hold a press conference, he often loses his train of thought and completely forgets what he was trying to say.
And you won’t believe the reason Joe Biden told reporters he would get in trouble during a recent White House press conference.
Joe Biden usually doesn’t take any questions during his weekly White House press conferences.
And the few times he’s taken questions it’s been scripted questions from pre-selected, friendly reporters.
But on Wednesday, Joe Biden held a brief press conference where he actually took a few unscripted questions from reporters.
After giving the American people an update on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, Joe Biden took a question from a reporter who asked about the supply of gas and rising prices before answering one final question about the growing conflict in Israel.
However, as President Biden was leaving the room, reporters shouted a number of questions at him, particularly about his meeting earlier in the day with Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to discuss a potential deal on infrastructure spending.
“You guys are bad. I’m not supposed to be answering all these questions,” Biden responded.
“I’m supposed to leave,” he added.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Biden’s handlers have rushed him away from reporters.
But this is the first time he came right out and admitted he wasn’t supposed to answer questions.
With more and more Americans asking questions about Joe Biden’s declining mental health, his response will only add fuel to the fire that he is incapable of holding a real press conference and answering real questions.
