Cue Cards And Pampering: Joe Biden's First Solo Press Conference

Click to see full-size image

On March 25th, US President Joe Biden gave his first press conference, a little over two months after stepping into office.

It was an incredibly uninteresting press briefing, in which there were no trick (or any difficult-to-answer) questions – there was no mention of Moscow, or “the killer Putin”, no COVID-19 (as if it didn’t exist).

The lack of trick questions is showing that there was a strict script. And still, Biden had cue cards ready, to remind him of what is what, and what he should be talking about.

This is something former President US Donald Trump was made fun because.

No mention of this, for Joe Biden.

One of the most interesting things he said is that he would likely run for a second term, at his age, adding:

“I respect fate. I have never been able to accurately plan for 3.5-4.5 years ahead.”

There is little to comment here, since a lack of hindsight and foresight is a staple of US policy, both internal and international.

Mostly, in his first press conference since taking office, President Joe Biden responded to numerous questions about a rise in immigration and reports of deplorable conditions at border facilities — issues he mostly blamed on the Trump administration.

Biden also set a new administration goal of administering 200 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine in his first 100 days in office. Biden reached his original goal of administering 100 million doses on his 58th day in office earlier this month.

In his nearly 90-minute long press conference, Biden was not asked any questions about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Following are the key topics:

  1. Immigration – During the press conference, Biden spoke about the situation at the southern border, as there has been a startling increase in the number of unaccompanied migrant children being held by Customs and Border Protection.

Biden also defended his administration’s policies by noting that “tens of thousands” of adults and families had been returned to Mexico. He noted that while some families have been able to enter the U.S. because Mexico would not allow them to be returned, he said that his administration was working with Mexican officials to end that policy.

He added that he does not think the conditions in those facilities are “acceptable,” and said that his administration is working to find ways to quickly process children and release them into the U.S.

He also committed to transparency at the border in allowing reporters to tour facilities housing migrant children — but only after his administration has time to “get things going.” He did not offer a specific timeline.

“I can’t guarantee we can solve everything, but we can make things better,” Biden said.

Promises for change: many. Actually realized: none.

  1. Filibuster – he said that he supports filibuster reform rather than abolishing the process altogether. He added that he feels the filibuster has been “abused in a giant way” in the last 20-30 years and supports reinstating rules that would require Senators to stand and speak on the Senate floor.
  2. Voting Rights Laws – Biden called on the Senate to pass the two voting rights bills recent passed by the House, and called Republican efforts at state levels to pass laws restricting voting rights “sick.”

“These bills make Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle,” Biden said.

Biden listed the passage of the voting rights bills specifically as one of the bills he planned to prioritize.

  1. Withdrawal from Afghanistan – Biden added that his administration was discussing ways to safely withdraw troops from Afghanistan with NATO allies and allies in the Middle East.

“We’re leaving, it’s just a question of when,” Biden said.

When asked if the U.S. would have troops in Afghanistan next year, Biden said he found that hard to picture.

  1. North Korea – Biden was asked how he would respond to North Korea’s recent missile test.

“We’re consulting with our allies and partners. There will be responses if they choose to escalate.”

  1. China – he didn’t mention any more sanctions on China in relation to their alleged treatment of Uyghurs.

Biden says he told Xi that the U.S. would not be “looking for confrontation” with China, but added there will be “steep competition.” He also said he expected a “level playing field” with China, in that they would play by the rules of international law.

Biden also framed relations with China as the fight between “democracy vs. autocracy.”

“We have to prove democracy works,” he said.

  1. Next elections in 2024 – Biden was asked by a member of the press corps if he intended to run again in 2024, noting that Trump had already announced his intention to seek re-election by this point in his term.

He said it was his “intention” to run again in 2024, and that if he did he planned to again select Vice President Kamala Harris as a running mate, adding that she’s doing a “great job.”

He also mentioned that he had gone to Senate 120 years ago.

In all, this was an incredibly well-orchestrated press conference, with controlled questions and nothing out of the ordinary. None of the most significant campaign promises he made were questioned and most of them were not even nearly realized.

You have an obsession with Hitler Jens. Is that because your grandmothers were raped by Germans during the war and you feel you owe some sort of loyalty… You have a twisted mind Jens..

Jens Holm

Actually I escaped form Syria in this. I robbed the Baathist Ministery for effective corrupsion. Thats why their lira collapsed.

ISIS helped me. They now have the only Russian Armata made of solid gold. The driver is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Next they will take Golan and Jerusalem Post. comment image comment image

Very true.

Clarence Spangle

If you were to walk out the back door of the building that house Disqus in San Francisco, CA, you would literally walk right into San Francisco’s Jewish cultural museum.

All these blogs on Disqus, from the far left and to the so-called far right are shills and listening posts for them. They come here too.

Arguably, all such Western platforms are on the side of the Chosen Ones.

The number of Chosen shills seems to have lessened this year.
Why I wonder? :)

The only place you escaped from is a mental institution. Payments for comments must be very low if this is the quality they pay for.. Sold your arse for a penny..

With a bit of luck the evil empire will drown in its own filth.

Self portrait or your hero .. For a paid troll I am sure you can do better. , Fancy getting your butt reamed out for this.

John Wallace

Yes he is the best one as picked by those that pull the strings unseen knowing he will do as he is told .

Biden is the “Jim Eagle” ,comment image

Jens Holm

He did very well and are in a calm way so far very good

AJ

He had a brain freeze, and said he was in senate 120 yrs ago. All the questions were known in advance with prepared answers. That shows he is incapable of answering spontaneous questions where he has to think for himself.

Jens Holm

He was joking about time nd age.

Nothing is wrong in trying not to be a not prepared gunslinger hitting random things ransom machinegunfire.

He seemes to have elected several very good secretaries as well, so I have hope.

Bob

Your comment translated: he didn’t do as badly as you feared he would. Yet.

Jens Holm

Thats correct. Leaders kind of him also sometimes are able to find many good subleaders making partly independent good jobs.

Bob

Biden as a new President waited nine full weeks to make a press speech – that is absolutely unheard of. And even when he did finally speak – he didn’t say much of anything. All that rather suggests his handlers needed weeks to get him ready to perform in front of cameras. Not promising start.

Jens Holm

He has done a lot of other things and mainly well or a little better then well.

Why dont You mention at least some of them:(

Bob

N-i-n-e w-e-e-k-s, to make a speech as the incoming president, n-i-n-e, count ’em.

John Wallace

Doesn’t matter how much you polish a turd Jens it is still a turd. . He was put there too usher in the first female President . Yes he already refers too her as President Harris because he is so senile and demented he can’t understand what he is doing.. Unlike YOU Jens this is my freely made comment not paid for by anyone.. What a low life whore that you can make comments only because you are paid to do so..

Jens Holm

Maybee Saudis should take Your hands, so You cant find anything stinking below Your bed blanket.

John Wallace

YOU get PAID to write THAT .. ??? Whoever you work for must be DESPERATE to pay for that … whatever it is meant to be … Don’t you realise those that make up their own minds and write freely are so much better than people like you that are brainwashed and PAID to write your mindless crap… No of course not Jens. Far too DUMB to even be able to THINK for yourself.. Now a lot of your comments make some sense since you admitted to being paid to write it… How DUMB can you get… They are really scraping the bottom of the barrel to pay you Jens..

Jens Holm

You should be paid not to write here.

Your freedom is with no limitations of the worst kind. Not even goats and our belowed pigs get bad stomach, if they eat Yoru crap.

You might be gone in 60 seconds, if we used soap on You.

As written before I collpased the Syrian Lira by robbing their Ministery for theft and corruption. Thats why Im rich.

John Wallace

At least Biden shows more intelligence than Jens .

Jens admits he is a PAID TROLL getting paid to write comments..

“Jens Holm Diana Cornwell 2 days ago
And I and we actually work and get paid for it. Thats where my money come from “

Jens Holm

Yes, my real name is Arnold and I can only bodybuild California:) . Some here think Califonie is a Khalifat too.

John Wallace

So you get paid by the comment rather than the veracity of it. Thanks for the confirmation PAID TROLL.. No wonder you make childish nonsense comments . Paid by quantity rather than quality..

Jens Holm

One of the main problems here are, You are not connected to the rest of the world and not even try.

Here I show how Europe, EU, Nato and I am and my country too. So my comments are something You not even try to understand

Trap Is Not Gay

They claim that man got 70 million votes.

OK.

John Wallace

I saw video of where a vote counting station was closed and about 5 stayed behind who then pulled out boxes of votes that were hidden under the table. illegally counting them after they supposed stopped counting with no observers.. Oh he got those votes alright …

cechas vodobenikov

Dick Von Dast'Ard

With a military like theirs, they don’t need anymore enemies…
