There has never been a President before Biden that didn’t actually speak to the American people. But apparently, ol’ Joe is pretty sad about the fact that he hasn’t been able to say what he wants to everyone. (Is this another sign that his handlers are keeping him locked away in the basement?) Biden promised that as 2022 continues, and as midterms loom, he is planning to spend more time speaking to voters directly, and approaching them differently than he has in the past year.
Biden says he’s going to get out of the White House (Does he mean the basement?) more often and that’s he will be out talking to people in the public. Biden made these comments during his second press conference where he spoke alone since he began his presidency. Usually, Biden’s handlers keep a tight grip on him, but Wednesday was an exception to the rule, as they finally let him speak unassisted.
During his presser, Biden was asked how he planned to address Black voters in the country who are disappointed with the fact that he couldn’t get the voting legislation that he promised to pass. He responded by acknowledging that he hasn’t been out in communities enough.
His other promises include things like bringing in more consultants and outsourcing experts when it comes to his legislative agendas as he begins to assist in the campaign fundraisers for dozens more candidates in 2022.
Biden says he will be more involved in the off-year elections than he has in the past.
The presser lasted almost two hours and marked the anniversary of Biden’s first year in the oval office. Biden gave himself a passing grade and extra gold stars to his administration for taking charge of the pandemic response, which he thinks has gone remarkably well.
Biden says that concerns about testing accessibility aren’t really concerns at all, because with everything that is going on he says the unavailability of the tests have nothing to do with competence.
He also didn’t have any qualms about his failure of a withdrawal from Afghanistan, which will likely be the largest ugly mark on his Presidency and go down in history books with the likes of Saigon.
Biden says it couldn’t have gone any differently, no matter how it was done.
He also dismissed how he’s doing in the polls as no concern. Talk about having your head in the sand.
