He’s not coming back from this one.
According to The Daily Wire, Fox News host Chris Wallace slammed Joe Biden for avoiding news conference for nearly three months.
“You talk about him being on the campaign trail but I think most people have been struck that he has been — he stayed in his Delaware home mostly and then in large parts since March, he’s held a few socially distanced events,” Wallace said. “And perhaps more important, he has not held a news conference either in person or online for 80 days, almost three months. Why not?”
“Well, Chris, to be clear, Vice President Biden … does interviews, takes question from the press regularly,” Biden adviser Symone Sanders responded. “And yes, in March, we were — we have adjusted to this new normal like most people in America. We have been campaigning virtually, but just because we are campaigning virtually does not mean we are not meeting actual voters across the country.”
“But why hasn’t he held a news conference for 80 days?” Wallace pressed.
“Chris, as … many of y’all in the national press and the beltway press are well aware, we take pride in prioritizing local media,” Sanders claimed. “And so, the vice president is doing local media interviews. He’s doing national media interviews and he is taking questions from reporters.”
Wallace responded, “President Trump says that one of the reasons that Biden is holed up in his basement is because he’s not up to campaigning.” You can read the full article here.
