Watch: White House Blames UK Prime Minister For Biden Not Answering Press Questions

Following yesterday’s demand from the White House press pool for an explanation about why Joe Biden will not answer any questions, Press Secretary Jen Psaki attempted to blame UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson for not alerting Biden’s team that he intended to take questions during an Oval office meeting.

Psaki’s pathetic response came after CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe confronted her on press corps members being routinely ushered away from Biden.

O’Keefe noted that “the British Prime Minister in the American Oval Office called on British reporter, and then when American reporters tried to call on the American president, we were escorted out.”

Psaki responded “I think our relationship with the United Kingdom and with prime minister Johnson is so strong and abiding, we’ll be able to move beyond this,” adding “But he called on individuals in his press corps without alerting us to that intention in advance.”

Oh the horror, a sitting leader of a country daring to answer some reporters’ questions off the cuff, without a bunch of handlers herding them away.

Later in the press conference, Psaki claimed that Biden had answered questions “135 times” recently, but indicated that Biden would hold a SECOND formal press conference at some point.

Psaki said “The president knows that he was elected not just to get the pandemic under control and put people back to work, but protect our democracy and stand up for what’s right and be transparent,” adding “Certainly part of that is engaging with all of you. I would note that he answered questions 135 times leading up to September, three times last week.”

As we have pointed out, Biden’s handlers are intent on tightly controlling his interaction with anyone outside the White House bubble, even muting his mic and aggressively yelling at reporters to get away from him.
