Joe Biden hasn’t sat for an interview with a member of the press in 100 days. Why do you suppose that is?
Could it be because his handlers are afraid of what he might say?
Or could it be because he is afraid of actual, difficult questions about things like inflation and high gas prices?
Hidin’ Biden Goes 100 Days Without an Interview
Apparently continuing the method he perfected during the 2020 campaign in which his aides kept him insulated in his Delaware basement for months on end, President Joe Biden has now gone 100 days without doing an interview with reporters — mainstream liberal or otherwise.
The last time the President of the United States sat down to answer questions was February 10, when Biden did an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt. Meanwhile, Biden has not been too busy to take frequent long-weekend trips to his homes in Delaware, head to Asia and Europe, or travel around the country touting his few legislative agenda items that managed to make it through the Democrat-controlled Congress. But he won’t face questions when it comes to those pieces of legislation, the many that didn’t make it past his own party on Capitol Hill, or the growing number of crises burdening the American people…
Here’s how Hidin’ Biden stacks up against his predecessors when it comes to interviews granted between the date of their inauguration and April 29th of the following year:
Joe Biden — 23 interviews
Donald Trump — 95 interviews
Barack Obama — 187 interviews
George W. Bush — 60 interviews
Bill Clinton — 64 interviews
George H.W. Bush — 70 interviews
Ronald Reagan — 78 interviews
In the same timeframe that Biden did 23 interviews, First Lady Jill Biden did at least 22 — even though she doesn’t have a direct role in policy.
