President Joe Biden continues to set records within his first two months of running the country, and they’re not records that any president should want to be credited to their name.
One of those, according to Breitbart, is the unbelievable stretch of time that has passed since his inauguration in which Biden still hasn’t held a press conference — an anomaly that is being noticed by mainstream media pundits from all political corners.
Remember how Biden spent most of his 2020 presidential campaign promising that his administration would be one of the most “transparent” in American history? Yeah, well, so much for that idea.
The stretch of time, so far, without holding a press conference doubles that of his last two predecessors combined.
To prove just how much of a problem this is becoming, even die-hard Democrats within the ranks of hosts at the Biden-friendly CNN cable news outlet are pointing out how long it’s been, including host Jake Tapper, who tweeted those statistics out to his followers recently.
.@Kevinliptakcnn notes that an analysis of the past 100 years shows President Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Biden has not and it’s day 42.

I mean, this is embarrassing, to say the least. When Tapper is highlighting one of Biden’s most glaring problems, you know things are getting bad.
But let’s be 100 percent honest — if I were in charge of Biden, as one of his White House handlers, I, too, would be absolutely terrified to let the 78-year-old, confused, frail, possibly Dementia-ridden president to answer unrehearsed, unscripted questions from an extremely hungry press.
However, that doesn’t give him a free pass. He is, after all, the president. And given the number of problems and issues facing the United States at this very moment, it’s absolutely unacceptable that he hasn’t taken the podium to answer even a few questions concerning the topics of the day.
What must other countries think about America right now? Especially after four years of actual transparency from Donald Trump, who would go out of his way to answer questions from the press, even when his handlers probably didn’t thin it was the best idea. That’s true transparency.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) also recently issued a statement on Biden’s bizarre refusal to hold a press conference, holding nothing back in their blistering assessment of the situation.
“Instead of taking questions and speaking directly to the American people, Joe Biden is hiding in the basement waiting for direction from his liberal handlers,” the organization wrote.
Given the explosive crisis on the southern border — which is literally becoming worse by the hour — COVID-19, the economy and other important issues, all Americans should demand that the president of the United States show some fortitude and take the tough questions that he knows are coming his way.
Time to man up, Joe.
