Don Jr. just slammed Biden with something that could cost him dessert for a week.
Biden’s administration has made him on a very limited schedule with the press and he just made a comment that revealed what a tight chain they have him on.
How can a man supposedly in “charge” of the most powerful country on the planet, say something like this?
“I’m sorry; this is the last question I will take. Then, I’m going to be in trouble.”
Joe knows he’s not in charge of anything and Don Jr. thinks it’s time we stop pretending that he is.
Here’s what Jr said about the video: “I’m sorry, this is the last question I will take. Then, I’m really going to be in trouble.” Are we still pretending this is the guy in charge? Who will the “leader” of the free world be in trouble with? Kamala? Xi???”

Biden is behaving like a child who’s stayed up too late playing video games, not the President of the United States.
It is not just Don Jr. who’s concerned with Biden’s avoidance of the press, the media themselves have also rung the alarm.
According to the American Presidency Project, the last 15 presidents held solo press conferences within their first 33 days in office. More than 50 days into Biden’s term, the White House Correspondents’ Association and The Washington Post editorial board are among those pressing him to do the same.
Although Biden has not held a press conference, he has taken questions from reporters dozens of times in less formal settings, similar to the pool sprays Trump often held. Those sessions are shorter and often more chaotic, and presidents can more easily evade or ignore questions they do not want to address.
Biden’s longest interaction with the press as president to date came on Jan. 25, when he fielded questions for about 20 minutes after signing an executive order. Like at Monday’s event, he frequently only takes one or two questions before reporters are rushed out of the room.
In addition to avoiding a formal press conference in his first 50+ days in office, Biden has not yet delivered an address to a joint session of Congress. Recent incoming presidents have typically spoken before Congress to outline their agenda by the end of February.
