Press Corp Member Dares ‘Hiding’ Biden to Actually Hold a Press Conference

While Joe Biden may very well be the man sitting at the desk in the Oval Office, there has been no shortage of wonder over who is really calling the shots at the White House.

There are plenty of factors that have contributed to this: ┬áBiden’s reluctance to run in the first place, rumors from the West Wing, and his unwillingness to perform even the most elementary tasks of the office.

In fact, when Biden is confronted with questions from the White House Press Corps, he often suggests that he would be “in trouble” if he were to indulge them.

This has now led to a tense confrontation on Pennsylvania Avenue.

White House reporter Brian Karem, who became known during the Trump administration for his aggressive style when asking questions, asked to have the same opportunity with Biden.

“I’m sure there have been dozens who would humbly request that the president of the United States not only do a town hall, but show up, either in this room or in the East Room, to appear before the full press for a robust round of questions that will no doubt benefit the American public,” Karem told White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

Biden is appearing at a “town hall” event on CNN Thursday evening.

The White House pushed back.

Jean-Pierre interjected and claimed Biden “takes questions all the time,” adding that it is a “large press corps.”

Of course, if Jean-Pierre is correct, then there would have been no reason for Karem’s question.
