They told me if I voted for Trump, then the White House would treat the media with utter contempt and loathing unbecoming of the democratically elected head of the executive branch of the U.S. government.
And they were right!
President Joe Biden on Friday reached a milestone not seen in the recent history of the presidency — 100 consecutive days without conducting a sit-down interview with the media.
The president was last interviewed by a member of the press on Feb. 10, when NBC's Lester Holt spoke to him ahead of Super Bowl LVI. Since then, Biden has held press conferences and taken questions from individual reporters but has not conducted any extended interviews.
You can't really be surprised. President Joe Biden is simply not cut out for a one-on-one any more. God bless him, but the man needs a teleprompter to be able to order dinner. At this point if he sits down with a journalist without having a cue card in front of him, the results will be all-too-predictable.
Notably, Biden is getting hosed not just by former President Trump but by Biden's own former boss:
Biden's interview frequency falls short of his predecessors, with just 23 conducted since taking office. At this point in their tenures, President Donald Trump had taken part in 95 interviews, while President Barack Obama reached a scorching 187 — more than eight times as many as Biden.
You know—you just know—that Obama is reading this stuff from his sunroom in Martha's Vineyard and probably kinda enjoying it just the littlest bit.
Start placing your bets now on whether Biden will make it to 200 days!
