It was unclear what Biden truly meant when he said he was going to be in trouble.
Lyndsey Fifield said, “Who will Biden ‘get in trouble’ with for taking basic press questions? He’s the PRESIDENT!”
Since taking the White House Biden has held a fairly strict limitation on speaking all by himself at press conferences.
Biden has taken a few questions at random on various occasions.
White House Press Sec. Jen Psaki, however, has held daily press briefings.
According to sources Biden has made 67 false claims since he entered the White House.
Maybe that’s why he said he would get in trouble. He doesn’t know what’s going on.
Reporters asked if people should continue wearing face covers regardless of being vaccinated or not.
Biden responded, “The science indicates that the most certain way to make sure it doesn’t spread is if both people have been vaccinated, and you’re outside.”
From Fox News:
Since he became president, he’s been more reserved, limiting his engagements with the media to one solo press conference and occasional impromptu question-and-answer sessions like Tuesday’s.
Reporters have expressed frustration at times for a lack of transparency on border issues and the lack of access overall to Biden.
The Washington Post’s Fact-Checker, breaking down the 67 falsehoods it had recorded from him during his first 100 days, noted the number was partly a function of how Biden “rarely faces reporters or speaks off the cuff.”
Biden repeated CDC guidelines about people continuing to wear masks indoors, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated, while saying vaccinated people can gather outside without one. He continued to advise any Americans who have not received a vaccine to get one as soon as possible.
