President Joe Biden announced his reelection bid this week, worrying Americans about what four more years of his administration’s policies would do. The man already needs a “cheat sheet” during his press conferences. Nonetheless, he has a pandering staff that will defend the aging man’s inability to lead a nation.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said “It’s entirely normal for a president to be briefed on reporters who will be asking questions at a press conference and issues that we expect they might ask about…It is not surprising that yesterday we would anticipate questions that he did receive.”
She attempted to accuse the press of doing the same thing, but with her assistance: “the questions you all tell me… that’s how we brief him as well.”
Just The News reports that her remarks are the result of scrutiny of Biden over a photo that emerged of him holding a card with the image of LA Times reporter Courtney Subramanian and a question on it. The photo suggests that Biden receives advance knowledge of the questions, and photos of the individuals to be called upon.
Jean-Pierre further denied that the White House had received any reporters’ questions in advance and insisted the president’s staff merely attempted to familiarize Biden with specific reporters and prepare him for their possible questions. The LA times denied that it had supplied Biden with questions in advance, saying that Subramanian’s posting means “she is in regular contact with the White House press office seeking information for her reporting.”
