Joe Biden has been in the White House for two months now, and to this day, he hasn't held a single press conference.
We didn't even get the regular State of the Union address. I guess we're skipping that this year entirely.
In the past 100 years, no president has ever gone this long without holding a press conference. Finally, he announced when he will be giving one and that date will be on March 25th.
Administration officials tried to justify his lengthy absence from the podium by saying he regularly has been taking questions from reporters in informal settings.
Former President Trump waited 27 days into his presidency to hold a press conference, former President Obama waited just 20 days before holding one, and former President George W. Bush waited 33 days before taking questions from the press in a formal setting.
"The president takes questions several times a week," White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters last week. "[W]hich is an opportunity for the people covering the White House to ask him about whatever news is happening on any given day."
We all know that this is just a BS excuse for him to not do one because he is completely inept. Every time he shows up in public, he destroys his image a little more, though there really isn't much left of it.
We've seen him make little appearances where he "takes a question or two from the media". These are obviously pre-screened questions.
But that's not the real story here.
The real story comes in that little moment in which he "took questions" about if he's going to visit the border anytime soon. Watch Biden's hands very closely in this video clip.
What exactly is going on here? Biden’s hand literally passes through the microphone. Can anyone explain?

His hand passes right through the microphone. Two of them actually. If it OBVIOUS that these are not there but have been interposed into the video, probably to make it seem like there are many more reporters there to make it seem more legitimate.
