Jen Psaki wants to make sure that Biden doesn’t stumble. In a new interview via a podcast, the WH Press Sec revealed that she is the driving force behind Biden often not taking informal questions. Biden ‘s often forgetfulness might be a reason why.
“He takes questions nearly every day he’s out [with] the press,” Psaki told former Obama campaign guru and CNN commentator David Axelrod on the latest episode of his “The Axe Files” podcast.
“A lot of times, we say, ‘Don’t take questions,’” Psaki disclosed. “But he’s going to what he wants to do because he’s the president of the United States.”
“The first time I traveled with him, he took questions from the pool three times that day, and I thought, ‘Am I going to be fired when I get back?’” Psaki recalled later in the program. “So he does do that, and he likes doing that. I mean, the thing is, he likes the press corps and likes that back-and-forth and that engagement.”
