President Joe Biden has been dog walked by his handlers yet again on Friday after the 46th president announced that he would be having a “major press conference” Friday afternoon. Whoever is really running the White House quickly let the lapdog media know that, no, the president would not be speaking to the press anytime soon.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do, and, I’m doing a major press conference this afternoon, so I love you all, but I’d like to ask you to leave, so we can get down to business,” Biden said to White House reporters Friday morning.
He then stared and smiled with a blank expression on his face, before promising that reporters would get a chance to talk about a number of news items later, seemingly implying at the press conference.
Even CNN was confused by the president’s statements.
“This is news to us,” network anchor John King said.

Well, the only problem is that it seems that Biden was confused (that’s not news at this point) and there is not going to be a press conference.
“At ease,” The New York Times’ Katie Rogers said. “The president was referring to his MSNBC interview tonight when he said he was delivering a ‘major’ press conference this afternoon, per 2 ppl familiar.”
As The Washington Free Beacon’s Brent Scher put it, “Friday late night appearance for his first interview of 2024 bid… it’s almost like they don’t want him to be seen!”

Biden, of course, is used to having his keister dragged around like a little puppy by whoever is really running the show. Just last week, he complained to a group of kids, “The one thing I thought when I got to be president? I’d get to give orders. But I take more orders than I ever did.”
Sometimes Joe Biden tells the truth:
“The one thing I thought when I got to be president? I'd get to give orders. But I take more orders than I ever did.”

You almost feel bad for the man when you hear that. Almost.
