Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany impressed people across the country with her intelligence, honesty and bravery.
Facing up to rooms of hostile leftist journalists day in and day out, McEnany didn’t back down or complain despite being treated like garbage even though she is a strong and successful women who progressives claim to respect and value.
Now McEnany is speaking out again, offering excellent insights into what’s going on with President Biden.
She recently revealed what she believes is going on with Biden and why he seems so hostile or avoidant of the media and public appearances.
The Biden Media Strategy
As McEnany points out, Biden’s avoidance of the media is nothing new. It was his strategy during the primaries and the 2020 campaign.
He simply let the progressive media rattle off its propaganda about how great he was and stayed in his basement. As for taking questions? C’mon man…
“He went something like 50 days and he only took questions twice. And when he did, they were hand-picked questions,” McEnany observed.
Being POTUS is a busy job, and there’s no doubt that the press can become annoying and even intrusive. But now that he’s the top boss why doesn’t Biden do more media?
According to McEnany it’s not Biden making the call: it’s his staff holding him back because they don’t trust him not to make embarrassing or stupid mistakes. Biden himself seems to have fun joking around with media for the most part, but McEnany believes he’s being held back by his own team.
“I think his staff does not have faith that he can stand at the podium and have a press conference the way President Trump did many times. 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,” McEnany said.
After all the bizarre and politically disastrous mistakes he’s made when he opens his mouth it’s hard to disagree with what McEnany is saying.
Thinking about how willing the Biden admin and media were to let it slip that over 100 #IllegalImmigrants released into the country were #COVID19 positive. How much you wanna bet those illegals will have the "new variant" strain? 🙄#masksforever

Keeping Track of Joe
Criticism of Biden has started growing even at left-wing outlets and his speech disorder combined with the senility is starting to make it very difficult for him to deliver basic speeches and take questions from the media.
When Biden does show up to take questions or do townhalls, the questions are usually pre-screened and his staff keeps a tight leash on him.
Recently during a video call with his party, Biden offered to take more questions on the COVID bailout bill, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (or “Nance” as he called her on the call) didn’t seem to be into it, with the video call ending shortly after that point.
He’s the President for God’s sake, but from the way he is treated you would think he’s someone’s senile uncle who’s been put in a management position at a company just to keep them from wandering around and having an accident or disturbing the other work going on.
Biden hasn’t held a press conference yet, although he did do a roundtable on his so-called American Rescue Plan recently. It was short and Biden ended it early, but at the end he took some questions.
The live feed from the White House didn’t seem overly interested in letting viewers watch and hear how he responded to questions from roundtable participants, and ended the feed abruptly.
Welcome to the new presidential normal, I guess. President Trump was so much better at handling the media.
