The senile Joe Biden now holds the record for holding the fewest number of press conferences in history in his first year in office for a supposedly “able bodied” chief executive.

With books of 2021, and his first year in office, written and closed, Biden held only nine press conference during his whole first year in office — and only six solo. That is a measly 0.82 pressers per month, according to The American Presidency Project by UC Santa Barbara.
That is the fewest since Calvin Coolidge back in the 1920s. Before Coolidge, press conferences weren’t really a thing. The press conference was an invention of the newly created mass media in the early part of the 1900s.

Technically, two other presidents had fewer pressers than Biden in their first year. One was Gerald Ford. But he doesn’t really count because he didn’t have a whole first year having only entered office in August (whereas Biden stated his term in January).

The other was Ronald Reagan. But, again, Reagan doesn’t count because he spent half the year trying to recover from being shot and nearly killed in March, only three months after he was inaugurated.

Even at that, both Reagan and Ford had six pressers in their first year while Biden had nine. So, Ford and Reagan had close to the same number in less than half the time that Biden has spent in office!

Biden has also been less available to the press in other venues, as well.

Analysis from the White House Transition Project shows Biden gave 22 press interviews in his first year — “fewer media interviews than any of his recent predecessors,” according to the Associated Press. Only three of these interviews were print.

So, what is the White House trying to hide?

Oh, we all know the answer to that.
