(Rallying Patriots) – It has been 45 days since President Joe Biden Took office and he has yet to give a press conference—a 100-year record for a U.S. President.
They told us there was nothing suspicious at all about him hiding in his basement the whole of the campaign—and yet now that he’s in office, they’re keeping him in the White House basement, apparently.
Now, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is calling out the administration and its staffers for deliberately keeping him from the press.
“As you’ll recall Stuart, the basement strategy is what he employed on the campaign trail. He went something like 50 days and he only took questions twice and when he did they were hand-picked questions,” she said during an appearance on Fox Business with host Stuart Varney.
McEnany declared she believes Biden’s “staff does not have faith that he could stand at the podium and have a press conference the way President [Donald] Trump did many times.”
She pointed to a virtual event for House Democrats during which the White House’s live feed had cut right after Biden asked the congressmen if anyone had any questions.
BIDEN: "I'm happy to take questions if that's what I'm supposed to do…"

“As you saw President Biden say right there, he said ‘I’m happy to take questions if that’s what I’m supposed to do.’ I’ve seen him joust back and forth in one interaction with Peter Doocy and he seemed to kind of relish the moment a little,” McEnany said.
“So I don’t think this is President Biden saying I don’t want to do this, I think it’s those around him recognizing when he does speak it doesn’t always turn out so well, like calling Republicans Neanderthals as he did recently in the Oval Office,” she added.
“The pressure is mounting when you have even left-wing outlets calling him out for this, but I would say it’s extraordinary that he hasn’t taken questions, certainly 100 year record for not taking questions in a solo press conference from a sitting precedent, president,” he said.
