I noted an exchange yesterday between Jen Psaki, WH Press Secretary, and a journalist [don't recall who; doesn't matter]. The journalist asked a pointed question why Biden had not held any press conferences since taking office, a duration in excess of 40 days - longer than any other new President in recent memory. Psaki replied, "I speak for the
President." That's all well and good, but what's wrong with Biden speaking for himself? At events where it is inevitable that media reps and the President will be in the same place, but the President answers one or two questions and walks away. Anyone want to venture a guess, particularly considering how the President conducted his campaign of similar avoidance? Is this going to be a spokesperson Presidency? One might conclude he cannot do it. After all, at least Oba'a had TOTUS.
