“Give Me a Break, Man!” Biden Lashes at the Press During COVID Briefing


Now that Biden has taken office, he can’t hide in the basement any longer.

He’s forced to take questions from the media and we got a taste of what to expect from Sleepy Joe’s pressers.

During his first full day of office, Biden gave a briefing on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

Check it out:

Doesn’t appear China Joe likes tough questions from the media.

But don’t expect him to receive a fraction of the press coverage thrown at Trump.

At any sign of conflict, Biden’s handlers shoo him away from reporters.

Gateway Pundit had the scoop on Biden’s first actual question on the job:

78-year-old Joe Biden held a presser from the White House on his plans to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine.

Doom and gloom Biden said the China Coronavirus death toll will likely pass 500,000 in February.

Biden struggled to get through the presser…he must be tired.

Biden then snubbed a reporter asking questions about the vaccine rollout plan.

“Come on! Give me a break, man!” retorted Biden as his handlers shooed away the press pool.

Mediaite provided additional commentary:

President Joe Biden has gotten into his first dustup with the media since taking office.

It happened Thursday in the White House when the AP’s Zeke Miller pressed Biden about one of the signature promises of his first 100 days — the pledge that 100 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine will be administered in that time.

“You set the goal at 100 million vaccines in the first 100 days — is that high enough?” Miller asked. “Shouldn’t we set the bar higher? That’s basically where the U.S. is right now.”

Biden bristled at the question and sniped at Miller in response.

“When I announced it you all said it’s not possible,” Biden said. “Come on, give me a break, man. It’s a good start, 100 million.”

The president did not engage further, as got up and left the room as an aide broke up the proceedings by urging reporters out.

As Miller out, Biden’s plan is coming under increased scrutiny for setting the bar too low. According to NBC, citing CDC data, the U.S. is now vaccinating 900,000 people per day. The Biden plan represents only a modest increase of roughly 10 percent per day. It also falls well short of what experts say is needed to achieve herd immunity.

Alex Azar, who served as Health and Human Services secretary under former President Donald Trump, has claimed the Biden projection should be doubled, or perhaps close to tripled.

“We will have distributed 250 million doses of vaccine by the end of April,” said Azar, in an interview with Fox News Monday. “If they’ve only done 100 million vaccinations by then, it will be a tragic squandering of the opportunity that we have handed them.”

I guess some reporters haven’t gotten the memo that you can’t throw tough questions at Overlord Biden.
