(RepublicanNews.org) – Donald Trump held 88 press conferences during his time in office, averaging 1.83 per month and 22 annually. Joe Biden has only given one press conference in the two+ months since he assumed office, leading to questions regarding his future availability to the press.
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany discussed the lack of Biden press conferences during a March 29 interview with Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney. She predicted it would “probably be another 100 days” before Biden held another news conference. Democrats don’t want him in a format that places him directly in front of reporters, she explained.
Next time round it will be 200 days. Then the 25th Amendment. Welcome to Kamala.https://t.co/ikHzSYzUon

The reasoning behind this avoidance is pretty obvious, according to McEnany. Biden tends to “step in it” when confronted by reporters. He stumbles when asked follow-up questions. His overall tone isn’t “robust,” and he gives “insufficient” answers.
Biden spent most of his presidential campaign hiding out from reporters in his Delaware bunker. If McEnany’s prediction is correct, there’s every reason to expect him to continue that pattern throughout his presidency.
