WASHINGTON, DC – The President of the United States is worried that he could get “in trouble” for answering questions posed by reporters. He made the admission while answering questions after delivering remarks from the White House on the COVID-19 vaccination program.

After answering several questions from reporters regarding the Colonial Pipeline cyberterrorism attack and the unrest in Israel and Gaza, a reporter asked the President about his infrastructure plan and a meeting he had held with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, The President responded:
“You guys are bad, I’m not supposed to be answering all these questions. I’m supposed to leave, but I can’t resist your questions.”
After making the off-the-cuff comment, President Biden answered the reporter’s question, saying that he came away “encouraged” by the meeting.
The comments came just days after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted that the administration does not want the President to answer impromptu questions from the media, suggesting the administration wants to censor or approve his comments.
Psaki said that answering the questions was “not something we recommend”:
“He takes questions nearly every day he’s out from the press. That is not something we recommend. In fact, a lot of times, we say, ‘Don’t take questions.’
“But he’s going to do what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”
The President has told the media that he would be “in trouble” for answering questions several times in the past. In April, he took questions from reporters as he walked away from the podium following a pandemic update. When a reporter asked him about India’s ongoing battle with the virus, Biden said:
“Look, I’m sorry. I’m going to — this is the last question I’ll take. I’m really going to be in trouble.”
President Biden has a long history of making verbal stumbles, and former President Trump used his gaffes during the 2020 presidential campaign to imply his intellectual capacity was failing.
Biden, who served as Vice President under Barack Obama, once made a comment that made the African American community cringe. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Biden said:
“(Obama was) the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
In another 2008 embarrassing moment, Biden, as the vice-presidential nominee, was on a campaign stump in Missouri and said:
“I’m told Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up Chuck, let ’em see you.”
Biden either did not know or had forgotten that Sen. Graham is confined to a wheelchair. When he realized his gaffe, he said:
Oh, God love you. What am I talking about? I’ll tell you what, you’re making everybody else stand up, though, pal.”
Baltimore Sun Columnist Stephen Frantzich discussed the gaffes in a September article:
“To his credit, he got through the Democratic convention without a gaffe. The question is not so much whether Joe Biden is prone to gaffes, but rather what they mean and how they should impact our vote. To the degree that a set of gaffes implies intellectual shortcomings or moral turpitude, such mistakes will rightfully push a voter away from Mr. Biden.”

Yes, he said that – Biden: “Who in God’s name needs a weapon that can hold…20 rounds”

WASHINGTON, DC – In light of the recent mass shooting that occurred in Indianapolis, President Joe Biden reiterated his stance with respect to the ongoing gun control debate by rhetorically questioning what kind of person would need a firearm that can hold 20, 40, or even 100 rounds.

On April 16th, President Biden once again called for Congress to enact gun legislation one day after the mass shooting that occurred at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis that saw eight people killed.
During this press conference, President Biden was asked whether or not he needed to reprioritize his agenda while in office, namely due to him spending a substantial amount of time focusing on an infrastructure package.
In response, the president said that there’s no reason why him and his administration cannot multitask:
“I’ve never not prioritized this. No one has worked harder to deal with the violence by individuals using weapons than I have.”
“It doesn’t mean that I can’t also be working at the same time on the economy and on Covid. But it’s not a question of my being able to set the agenda in the Senate as to what they will move to first.”
In recent weeks, President Biden has been vocal about violent crime enabled by firearms and ways he’d like to see reducing incidents legislatively.

During the April 16th address from the Rose Garden, President Biden rhetorically asked what type of person could possibly need a magazine for a firearm that could hold 20 or more rounds:
“Who in God’s name needs a weapon that can hold 100 rounds or 40 rounds or 20 rounds? It’s just wrong, and I’m not going to give up ‘til it’s done.”
The president transferred the blame to that of Republicans in the Senate, with respect as to why new gun legislation hasn’t been getting fast tracked:
“I continue and I strongly, strongly urge my Republican friends in the Congress who refuse to bring up the House-passed bill.”
President Biden then proclaimed that there are mass shootings that happen in the United States “every single day”:
“It’s not only these mass shootings that are occurring, every single day, every single day there’s a mass shooting in the United States if you count all those who are killed on the streets and our rural areas.”
Even though there’s not a widely accepted definition of a mass shooting, according to NBC News who defines a mass shooting as a single incident where three or more people were shot in a public place while not including the shooter, there has been 6 mass shootings in 2021.
While that reality is unsettling, it is also a far cry from a mass shooting transpiring “every single day” in the country.
