What a joke.
We are in the middle of a global pandemic, economic turmoil, and racial unrest.
And instead of asking any substantive questions, the “journalists” at the first White House press conference ask: will Joe Biden keep or change Trump’s Air Force One color scheme?
And they wonder why we call them FAKE NEWS!
The worst part is that the new White House press secretary saw no problem with this fluff, un-serious question.
This is such a great question!
Ummm… no, it’s not!
See the ridiculous moment below:
Listen to this, kindergarten is back in session for 4 years 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
REPORTER: "Will [Biden] keep Donald Trump's Air Force One color scheme change?
PSAKI: "This is such a good question!" https://t.co/0KI1AuyqP6

Think about it…
Republicans always get tough, substantive questions.
Sometimes the questions are flat out aggressive.
But Democrat administrations get nonsense questions as though they’re celebrities in Hollywood.
This wasn’t a serious or important question at all!
Especially with everyone going on in the world.
The media is already covering how “mild” the press conference was.
The comparison they’re trying to make is that the Trump press conferences were “wild” whereas Biden’s are calm.
But the reason that Trump’s were mild is because the attacking questions that the media asked!
Here’s how Buzzfeed spun the first press briefing:
White House press secretary Jen Psaki opened the first press conference of the Biden administration, reestablishing a relationship with the press and reviewing the slew of executive orders that President Joe Biden signed during his first day in the White House.
It was civil and relatively free of news — a complete reversal from what has happened in the rare press briefings of the last four years.
Psaki opened the press conference vowing to bring back an era of “truth and transparency” to the briefing room and committed to having regularly scheduled press briefings — a markedly different approach from the infrequent and often hostile interactions with the press that defined the Trump administration’s time in the White House.
During the first press conference of the Trump administration, Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary, spent the entire briefing lying and chastising the press about the size of the crowd at former president Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017.
“There will be moments when we disagree, and there will certainly be days where we disagree for extensive parts of the briefing even, perhaps,” Psaki said during Wednesday’s press briefing. “But we have a common goal, which is sharing accurate information with the American people.”
Psaki, the former Obama-era White House communications director and chief State Department spokesperson, spent a majority of the press conference reviewing the 15 executive orders that Biden signed that afternoon concerning the pandemic and reversing a slew of Trump policies, including ending the “Muslim ban,” pausing construction on the border wall, and rejoining the World Health Organization and the Paris climate agreement.
Psaki also told the press that Biden would let Congress decide on how to move forward on the second trial for Trump after the House voted last week to impeach him for inciting an insurrection at the Capitol while Congress was certifying the electoral college votes. The trial could consume the Senate’s time during the opening weeks of the Biden administration with few members of his cabinet confirmed.
If you want to know exactly how unserious the Biden press corp is, take a lot at the screenshots posts by Greg Price below:
