Americans—and the media—were wondering why Biden was hiding from the press, refusing to do a briefing. (His handlers even shouted down reporters once, for crying out loud.)
It’s hard to argue why now, after we’ve seen how he did last night. Many have criticized Biden’s reliance on talking points and notes. Not to mention evidence that the questions were given to him beforehand.
Another expert at handling the media, President Donald Trump, discussed the press conference during an interview.
And this is what he had to say.
From Daily Wire:
“Well, they were strange questions, and they were asked in a very interesting way… It was like softballs, like you are throwing softballs up, and it’s just a different world. Nobody has seen anything like it… And it’s very sad to watch, actually, they are feeding him questions. They are easy questions. I noticed Peter Doocy didn’t get to ask a question today…”
“You know, he just, look, the whole thing is ridiculous. You know it, and so do I.”
Here’s his full response:
Trump slammed Joe Biden’s press conference, highlighting how odd it was for the media to hand him “softball” questions.
The 45th president is well-aware of how brutal the media can be. When he was in office, they did not hesitate to go for the throat.
And Trump never backed down. He was perfectly suited to go toe-to-toe with a biased media eager to take him down.
But the very same reporters were totally unable to hit Biden with hard questions. And there are plenty of issues to confront him over. The Keystone XL Pipeline, the border crisis, rising energy costs, that embarrassing meeting with China, Russia, Iran, and so much more.
Biden has already shown a shocking lack of leadership, for a man who was a senator for decades and a vice president.
Yet the media avoided anything that would have challenged Biden. Nor did they press him over his weak and unsatisfying answers he did give.
Trump was right to call the whole thing ridiculous. America waited 2 months to hear directly from Biden. And this is the best he can do?
- Donald Trump criticized Joe Biden’s first press conference, calling it ridiculous.
- He slammed the media for giving his “softball” questions and refusing to challenge him.
- The media was merciless with Trump and hammered him constantly.
